Perfect Your Video Calls: Introducing SoundSurge 85 and SoundSurge 90 Hybrid

New Bluetooth Headphones SoundSurge 85 & SoundSurge 90

We have two exciting new TaoTronics Bluetooth Headphones releases – but, what is the difference between SoundSurge 85 and SoundSurge 90 Hybrid? And how do they compare to SoundSurge 60? Read on to find out!

It is exciting to see the new developments that are emerging as the world enters what feels like the 50th week of January. Some countries are beginning to open up again; others are working hard on a vaccine; many more communities across the world are being drawn together.

One way that people are connecting face-to-face is through video calls. This includes zoom video calls and WhatsApp video calls, which are available on your phone or on your laptop.

When you have a great connection, the main trouble with these calls is usually the audio. We talked before about how to improve zoom audio—but what about the type of headphones you should buy to make sure you get great audio whether you are talking to your family, listening to music, or even gaming?

Introducing the newest TaoTronics Bluetooth headphones: SoundSurge 85 and the SoundSurge 90 Hybrid. These incredible audio units are all new, an exciting prospect in these “Groundhog Day” times. If you are looking for something to spice up your daily routine, look no further.

What is So Great about the New TaoTronics Bluetooth Headphones?

At TaoTronics, we are consistently looking to build and grow, providing you with incredible audio that is developing year on year. That is why we are so proud of these new headphones.

SoundSurge 85 and 90 do more than just let you listen to music (though they do this with the TaoTronics quality you know and love). With their built-in microphones and noise cancelling technology, you can speak clearly with your friends, family, and colleagues. Staying in contact and speaking and listening with clarity is more important than ever, and these headphones certainly deliver.

Bluetooth 5.0 means that you can cut the cord, no longer tangling yourself in wires in the middle of a Zoom meeting or an important Fifa match on your PS4. Use them anywhere in your house, and even use them when you are lightly exercising. They are designed to stay comfortably on your head, all day.

What Is Similar Between these TaoTronics Bluetooth Headphones?

Both of these headphones are new, and both of them are available in black. If that is all you need to decide on your headphones, you can head straight to Amazon to grab a pair. If not, we list some of the similarities between the headphone sets—and why this makes them so great—below.

Crystal Clear, Stereo Sound

40mm dynamic drivers provide you with deep bass and a well-rounded audio soundstage. Switch happily between hard rock, country, and pop without losing sound quality. Or, use them with your scariest video game to hear all the background noises.

Fast Charging

Both SoundSurge 85 and SoundSurge 90 have a fast charge feature that allows you a full day of listening from a mere 45 minutes of being connected to a power source. You can even charge your headphones for only five minutes to get a full two hours of playback.

This gives you total freedom, even if you regularly forget to charge your headphones. Quickly connect your headphones to power before you head on your commute (or, in the current climate, out for your daily jog around the block) for a few minutes without worrying that they will immediately die.

Superior, All-Day Comfort

Sometimes you just need to block out the world for a day. That’s okay, and now it is possible to do so comfortably. These headphones have soft protein, memory foam earpads that fit snug around your ear without unwanted pressure. What’s more, they are easily adjustable. You can fit them to so perfectly to your head that no one else in your house will want to borrow them.

Bluetooth 5.0

The latest in secure and unwavering Bluetooth connection means you will be able to connect your TaoTronics Bluetooth headphones to devices anywhere in the room. Enjoy uninterrupted audio for hours at a time.

What is the Difference Between SoundSurge 85 and SoundSurge 90?

There are a couple of key differences between these headphones that might help sway which ones you choose.


The SoundSurge 90 features hybrid active noise cancelling technology. Nicknamed HANC, this technology uses both feed forward and feed backward noise cancelling to reduce background noise more precisely across a broad range of frequencies. This means up to 96% of low-frequency sounds can be reduced.

In active noise cancelling, such as in the SoundSurge 85, the headphones use feedback technology to create a new wave. This new wave is emitted to interrupt sounds that might otherwise disturb your audio. Learn more about that at our how to choose noise cancelling headphones blog.

cVc 8.0 Noise Cancelling Microphone

SoundSurge 85 makes sure you are heard as you chat for hours with your family about the future of the planet. This microphone is a blessing and a curse. With some of the most advanced noise cancelling technology around, you won’t be able to whisper under your breath when a colleague annoys you in a virtual meeting. On the other hand, our SoundSurge 90 comes with a regular built-in microphone, so you’re still able to chat when the situation requires it.

Playback Time

The other obvious difference is battery life. Five hours separate the SoundSurge 90 Hybrid and the SoundSurge 85, with the 85 just edging out the 90. If you think those extra five hours are worth it for not having HANC, then the 85’s are the headphones for you.

For truckers and other workers who need that extra clarity on their voice calls, this headset provides incredible active noise cancellation when you need it most. We explore its key features below.

AI Technology

This is no ordinary noise cancelling headset, and no ordinary noise cancellation technology. In fact, this is our most advanced noise cancellation technology yet.

Our engineers have crafted SoundSurge 41 using AI (artificial intelligence) technology, to reduce background noise by up to 40dB. This means that background noises are drastically reduced, including truck engines and murmuring in the office.

We have even combined these advancements with a QCC3020 chipset. You will be able to hear with clarity as you simultaneously pair two Bluetooth 5.0 devices with a fast and stable transmission.

One Press Controls

At the click of the multifunction button you can mute, end, reject, redial, and answer calls, as well as transferring your call if necessary. Of course, this button will also allow you to change the volume. With so much power at your fingers, you have to be careful not to get press-happy and constantly reject then redial calls!

Lightweight and Comfortable

All of this technology is packed into a lightweight and ergonomic design that is comfortable to wear for hours at a time. Simply adjust the headband to your perfect width, settle back, and enjoy chatting as you go about your day.

Lasts as Long as You Do

With 34 listening hours on one charge, this headset can be your companion and keep you connected all day. What are you waiting for? Order your headset from our website.
