Today while attending the Showstoppers virtual press event we learned about Jabra’s Evolve2 Headset Range and the benefits of the headsets while many of us are either staying or working from home. The Evolve2 range is the next generation of Evolve, its best-selling and market-leading UC headsets for improved productivity. The new range consists of the Evolve2 85, Evolve2 65 and Evolve2 40 and is engineered to transform concentration, collaboration and flexibility in the workplace. The Evolve2 headsets work with all leading UC platforms and are pending certification for Microsoft Teams.
Due to COVID-19 there is a higher need for collaboration across enterprise locations and around the world. Taking the best features of Jabra’s consumer audio expertise combined with enterprise-grade technology, the no-compromise Evolve2 headset range offers features that suit every element of life, whether in the office or on-the-go and remote.
The Evolve2 Range Includes The Three Below Headsets:
Offers Digital Hybrid ANC and ten microphones in total, including two microphones in the fully integrated boom-arm, which can be discretely hidden for on-the-go use, and eight in the ear cups. Users can enjoy up to 37 hours of wireless battery life, 40MM speakers for an immersive music, and an integrated busy light with a 360-degree view on both ear cups.
The headset has been developed to take full advantage of the latest in audio chipset technology, enabling the Evolve2 85 to be one step ahead in battery life, solid connectivity, and audio processing. The sleek and comfortable Evolve2 85 is designed with both the office environment and mobile professional in mind, which ensures the headset can be worn regardless of where you’re working.
This headset has three microphones of which two are located in the boom-arm and one in the right ear cup. The headset offers up to 37 hours of battery life and three times better real wireless range than the existing Evolve 65.
This Jabra headset is a corded variant and offers the same comfort, durability and user experience as the Evolve2 65.
The Evolve2 85 and Evolve2 65 will include the Jabra Link 380, Jabra’s new BT adapter (dongle) that will be available in either USB-C or USB-A version. The Microsoft Teams variants in the range have a dedicated Microsoft Teams button which allows instant connection to colleagues and meetings. For these versions, the special status indicator LED on the headset signals different alerts, such as a missed call or a new voicemail.
