Welcome to a better way of working!
Forget the status quo, and instead, embrace a new communication device by Jabra that can take your business calls to a new level.
Now that Covid is mostly in the rear view mirror, we're all having to adjust to different working situations, and the headset we use needs to be adaptable to handle calls wherever we might be working. This could be working at home, in the office, or on the go.
For some, this means remaining a remote worker, and working from home. For others, it might mean returning to work at the office, or you might end up being a hybrid worker where your office could be anywhere.
Wherever work takes you, one thing is undeniable, and that is, you need to sound professional on your voice and video calls. And whether you use Microsoft Teams, RingCentral, Zoom, or any of the other popular communication applications, having a professional grade headset that’s comfortable, reliable, and professional sounding is a must.
With all the choices, which is best?
Which is best for your situation, and the system you use? The answer to questions like these isn’t always simple, and clear.
My advice? Stick with known brands, from reliable sources such as Jabra headsets from Headset Advisor as an example.
If you use a desktop, or laptop computer for your voice and video calls, and you need connectivity to your mobile devices, here’s a great headset to consider from Jabra that might just leave you speechless from the many features it comes with, not to mention its smashing good looks. I'm referring to the Jabra Evolve2 75 Bluetooth wireless headset from Jabra.
Let's take a look at this headset, and find out what makes it a serious contender for your hard earned money.
You have two ways to get this information:
- You can contilnue reading this blog, or....
- You can watch our Headset Advisor review video below.
What makes the Jabra Evolve2 75 a good choice for those who need to connect to a computer, and mobile devices?
Sound quality is first up because a headset that’s used for business needs to sound good, you could even say great, because when you’re doing business, sound quality matters. The Jabra Evolve2 75 Bluetooth wireless headset, in my opinion, won’t disappoint.
The Evolve2 75 comes with 8 precision-placed microphones to catch every word so your callers aren’t asking you to repeat yourself. The microphones are designed so you sound crisp, clear and professional.
What about reducing noise?
Having a great sounding microphone is part of the equation when it comes to sound quality. That’s because there’s this elephant in the room called background noise. You know all about this if
- You work from home with the kids begging for your attention.
- Or maybe your favorite four legged friend is thinking it’s playtime
- And if you work in an office, you probably have coworkers that are noisy.
Wherever you work, and whatever it is that you deal with, noise, for most of us, is a real problem.
Fortunately, Jabra Engineers took out all the stops with the tech they packed into this headset, because the Evolve2 75 is a modern day miracle when it comes to eliminating background noise.
There’s an advanced triple digital chipset that powers a ground-breaking new Jabra algorithm, which is designed to improve the headset’s ability to differentiate between a voice, and background noise.
Here's a 4 second animation that gives you an inside look.
And the Evolve2 75 also meets Microsoft’s Open Office requirements. When using the Evolve2 75, your calls are cleaner, sharper and professional, no matter where you’re working.
Updated microphone boom
Some might think that a mic boom isn’t a subject worth talking about. I’d disagree. A lot of people don’t like big, or rigid microphone booms. They can get in the way and besides, most people just don’t like the way they look.
The boom arm on the Evolve2 75 is short. In fact, a lot shorter than most. And though having a short microphone boom helps to give ithis headset a better overall look, the boom does more than just look good.
If you’re not on business calls, and you just want to relax to some music, or listen to a podcast, you can swing the microphone boom arm up, and it neatly folds away, out of sight. Then, when you want to get on a call, just swing it back down, and you’re ready to go. And by the way, if you’re on a call, and you swing the boom arm up, it will mute the call. Swinging it back down unmutes.
Purely from an appearance point of view, this feature is like getting two headsets in one;
- A business headset with a boom microphone for having professional sound when on important business calls, and
- A pair of headphones where the microphone boom arm isn’t visible. Much like what you see when looking at a typical pair of entertainment headphones.
So what else is noteworthy about the Jabra Evolve2 75?
Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)
This is fast becoming a common feature on business grade headsets these days, and the Evolve2 75 has it. So what is ANC exactly?
ANC is a feature that electronically provides counter measures to incoming noise. If you’re working in a noisy environment, that can be distracting which can be a drag on productivity.
To help gain control over noise in your environment, simply press the ANC button on the headset, and you’ll instantly hear that noise fade away. Noise averted, mission accomplished!
This is another emerging feature that we’re seeing more frequently on headsets used for business.
Anyone who wears a headset for long periods of time knows the frustration of having to continually take off the headset to have a conversation with someone. This tends to repeat itself throughout the day, and for a lot of people, can be an annoyance.
This is where the HearThrough feature helps to make things better. This feature allows you to keep your headset on, while having a face-to-face conversation with a coworker, or to hear your surroundings which is oftentimes referred to as situational awareness.
HearThrough is made up of microphones that can be activated, or deactivated at the press of a button. So when you want to have that face-to-face conversation, simply activate HearThrough and have that conversation. And when you’re done, deactivate HearThrough and go back to what you were doing. No need to remove the headset.
The Jabra Evolve2 75 comes with HearThrough which is good news to those of you who get annoyed by having to continuously remove a headset throughout the day. Good news comes in many different forms, and HearThrough on the Evolve2 75 is certainly one of them.
Jabra didn’t overlook ear speaker sound quality in the Evolve2 75. Your ears are treated to 40mm speakers that deliver impressive sound quality.
Notable bass tones, pleasing mids, and sharp highs. So whether you plan on listening to some music, a podcast, or for business purposes, the sound you’ll get is bound to please.
The Evolve2 75 is designed for use with desktop computers, laptops and mobile devices. It will remember up to 8 devices, and maintain a connection to 2 simultaneously.
If you need to use your headset for voice or video calls using your computer, and then switch to using the headset with a mobile phone, it does that seamlessly.
Unlike many wireless headsets, the Jabra Evolve2 75 comes with a USB adapter for a better call experience.
USB adapters, compared to connecting via Bluetooth gives you:
- A better, more reliable connection
- Better sound quality
- Longer wireless range
- And remote call answering for the UC applications its optimized with which includes Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, and Zoom.
When purchasing the Jabra Evolve2 75, you have several choices. Below are the options you can choose from:
- USB A, or USB C adapter
- Microsoft Teams, or UC version
- Charging stand, or no charging stand
Some computers use USB A adapters, while newer models are using USB C. Either way, you have the choice of USB adapter so you can use the one that matches your USB port.
If your company uses Microsoft Teams as the primary UC platform, then selecting the Teams version makes the most sense. You'll have more integration, and convenience features.
If your company uses a variety of applications such as Teams, RingCentral or Zoom as an example, then making the choice for the UC variant would be the most sensible selection.
And finally, if you'd like to drop your headset into a small, desktop charger when the battery needs charging, then selecting the charging stand option would be ideal. Otherwise, you'd recharge the battery by plugging in the USB charge cable.
Most would agree that it's nice not having to recharge a headset battery every day. If you forget to recharge it, you could easily find yourself at work the next day with a dead battery. Not exactly the way you want to start of your new workday.
The Eviolve2 75 is one of those wireless headsets that doesn't require the battery to be recharged each day. That's because it provides more talk time than you can consume in a given day. Here are the battery specs:
- Talk Time: Up to 24 hours (with ANC/busylight off)/Up to 18 hours (with ANC on/busylight on)
- Listening Time: Up to 36 hours (with ANC off)/Up to 33 hours (with ANC on)
- Recharge time: Up to 160 minutes
- Battery percent charge time: 30% after 35 min and 60% after 70 min
- Charging method: Charge stand, or USB-C cable
- Battery type: Rechargeable lithium-ion
The bottom line is the Jabra Evolve2 75 comes with sufficient power to keep you talking, or listening all day. You may find that the battery will need to be recharged once a week, rather than once a day. Good news if you're someone who doesn't want one more thing added to their daily list of things to do.
Let’s be honest, comfort matters. Nobody wants a headset that leaves them in pain and hurting at the end of the day. Whether that’s a headband that presses too tightly, or ear cushions that are thin and made of cheap materials causing the ear speaker housing to press against the ears. Whatever it is that makes a headset uncomfortable, you want to avoid it if possible.
So, is the Jabra Evolve2 75 comfortable? We think so, and here's why:
The headband isn’t just padded on top like a lot of other headsets. It’s padded everywhere. So wherever the headband comes in contact with your head, you’ll only feel the cush of soft padding, and no discomfort.
Besides being generously padded, the Jabra Evolve2 75 headband adjusts so you can find the exact height for optimum comfort. Heads come in many sizes and shapes, and having this adjustable headband means your head won’t have to conform to the headband, because the headband conforms to your head.
The ear cushions aren’t the same as you find on other headsets, they’re better.
First, Jabra uses two layers of foam, with one being memory foam, and the other foam material being a bit more rigid. This approach allows the Evolve2 75 to be:
More comfortable because the memory foam molds to your exact ear shape.
The second type of material used in the ear cushion, which is firmer, is designed to passively absorb ambient room noise. This means you’ll hear less noise, and be able to concentrate better.
Ear speaker housing design
The ear speaker housing that the ear cushions are attached to were designed in such a way to help refract room noise. So rather than allowing noise to go straight in the direction of your ears, the sound bounces, and angles off into a different direction. Less noise to hear, less chance of getting distracted. Less distractions means better concentration and productivity.
You can choose from different software Apps to download, depending on what you want to do. For example:
Make adjustments right from your Smartphone such as setting up your preferred audio profile, intuitive ANC, HearThrough, personalize call settings, and update your device firmware.
When you access Jabra Direct, you’re able to view, monitor and manage different Jabra devices, individually, or across an entire enterprise, right from your desktop. You’re able to update firmware, obtain usage reports, and access a greater level of personalized features.
