When we talk, we use the sound of our voice to help gauge how loud we should talk. When we can’t hear ourselves, we may end up overcompensating and talk too loudly, or conversely, too quietly making us hard to hear.
The ability to hear our voice when we talk is referred to as sidetone. In this blog, I’m going to go over the process involved to activate, and adjust sidetone on your Jabra headset.
There’s a fair amount of information available on the subject of sidetone. Some articles get into a lot of technical details, while others may leave you wanting more. Here’s an article that I think is helpful written by Iron Horse Trading that discusses sidetone. I think you might find this article interesting and informative if you want to know more about this.
Before I begin explaining how to adjust sidetone on your Jabra headset, I did want to mention that we have a short Youtube video on this subject available to view. It’s very short (1:20), so it wouldn’t take much time to watch. If you’d like to check it out, here’s the video
If you’re still reading this blog, then let’s go over the details on adjusting sidetone on a Jabra headset.
For the purposes of illustration, I’ll be referencing a Jabra Evolve2 75 in this blog as it mirrors the model used in the video I referenced above.
Now that you know a little bit more about sidetone, and why it’s important, let’s go over the step-by-step process for adjusting the sidetone feature.
Some Jabra headsets have a sidetone button located on the earpiece, like the Jabra Evolve2 75 I’m using. This allows you to activate sidetone, or deactivate it. Though useful, a lot of people want more customization of that feature which is where the Jabra Direct app comes in.
Once you’ve downloaded the Jabra Direct application, select your specific headset model. In my case it would be the Evolve2 75.
Scroll down towards the bottom of the page and select sidetone
Select enable sidetone
Select sidetone level
Select your desired level of sidetone. Here you can adjust the sidetone up to 6 decibels, and down 9 decibels.
Once you’ve navigated your way through these steps, your sidetone has been adjusted. You can safely say that you’re the office expert, and probably even qualify for a raise. Hey, you deserve it, right?
Downloading the Jabra Direct software provides you with several benefits. One of these benefits is the ability to adjust your sidetone.
