Jabra Launches Evolve2 75 Wireless Headset with 8 Microphones

Jabra announces the availability of the Jabra Evolve2 75 wireless headset in Singapore. This headset is targeted at people who works in a hybrid working environment without compromising on style or sound quality.

With changes to the working environment, especially due to COVID-19, Jabra expects more companies to adopt to hybrid working style.

Based on survey data, the new normal working environment is hybrid – 2.25 days at home, 2.25 days in office and another 0.5 day in a “third” space which might be a cafe.

However, with ambient noise or if you are surrounded by people, a good headset is important to reduce other noises other than your own voice. The Jabra Evolve2 75 Enterprise headset is specifically designed to do this.

It has 8 microphones, a long battery life, a 30m range (with the dongle provided) and a comfortable on-ear design to meet the needs of today.

I attest to the fact that a good headset is important. When the pandemic just started about 1.5 to 2 years ago, I am using just the free earpiece from my handphones to communicate. Many times, I have to ask “can you hear me?” or my surrounding sound was captured by the microphone and causing the meeting to be noisy.

Over the time, I upgraded to headset with ANC and today, I only use wireless headset with good ANC for daily meetings.

I might get a review set to test out. You can check out my other headset test HERE or directly HERE.

Lets take a closer look at the internal parts of this Jabra Evolve2 75 headset. It looks really well-made.

However, it comes with a hefty price tag.

Singapore, November 11th 2021Jabra today announces the release of the latest in its Evolve range of enterprise headsets, the Evolve2 75.

Jabra’s latest hybrid working research shows that 85% of knowledge workers said being confident in their audio, video and connectivity allows them to excel at work[2]. With that in mind, the new Evolve2 75 aims to be the flexibility hero, with comfort, concentration, collaboration and insights at its core. These pose the biggest challenges for organisations whose employees are working in changing locations, so Jabra has packed the Evolve2 75 with new features that push sound quality and comfort even further. Maximising flexibility and increasing concentration, the Evolve2 75 delivers crystal-clear calls and pitch-perfect music in any surroundings.

Jabra has engineered a superior ergonomic fit for the ear cups, reimagining the leatherette, dual cushion design to improve ventilation and reduce ear pressure. In turn, this optimises the curvature and padding of the headband to ensure this headset stays securely in place. Not only does this avoid causing discomfort, but it also dramatically improves the overall active noise cancellation performance too, for maximised comfort without compromising on sound.

Jabra Evolve first

The Evolve2 75 is the first of Jabra’s Evolve headsets to include fully adjustable Jabra Advanced Active Noise CancellationTM (ANC), so you can pick and choose how much (or how little) of your surroundings you hear. A ‘HearThrough’ button allows for tuning back into the sounds around you when you need to, without even having to take your headset off. With customisable settings like MySound (for the Sound+ mobile app), optimising music for personalised hearing profiles, and Equaliser adjustment, available through the Sound+ app plus Jabra Direct on mobiles and PCs), the Evolve2 75 suits changing needs.

Greater sound and flexibility

The mute and auto answer-enabled microphone boom arm on this new headset is 33 per cent shorter than on the previous Evolve 75 design, giving users even greater flexibility and better-sounding audio. The arm is also intended to meet Microsoft’s stringent Open Office requirements, when the boom arm is flipped down in Performance mode. It effectively cuts out ambient sound in open-plan offices and loud, busy indoor areas. The headset has a discreet mode feature, you can easily fold away the boom arm when required for quality calls on the go.

The headset’s 8-microphone technology works with Jabra’s revolutionary triple chipset-powered algorithm to distinguish between your voice and the noise around you even more precisely, for the sharpest-sounding calls yet. The Evolve2 75 also includes a ‘Busylight’ with increased 360º visibility for when total focus is needed.

Data-capturing capabilities

Finally, Jabra has added extra benefits to the latest headset, making it even easier to go anywhere and still stay connected. Optimised for all leading Unified Communications platforms, the Evolve2 75 connects colleagues on whichever platform they prefer. The headsets also offer data capturing capabilities so IT Departments can make more informed decisions and troubleshoot any issues before they become a problem.

Jabra Xpress software also makes it easy to oversee deployment, update firmware and manage settings remotely. The 30 metre robust wireless range and dual connectivity to computers and mobile devices gives the Evolve2 75 extra flexibility, promising increased freedom to walk and talk without affecting call quality. With the Evolve2 75’s extended battery life, charge-and-talk technology and new fast-charging capabilities, making as many calls as needed, from any location, has never been easier.

Holger Reisinger, SVP for Enterprise Solutions at Jabra said, “Our goal for every addition to the Evolve Series is not to simply create a new headset, but to set a new standard. That’s why we look at all aspects of the product during development in order to get to the best audio experience imaginable. With the combination of our ground-breaking new dual-foam technology, an improved headband and a revolutionary new ‘comfort pattern’ design, the Jabra Evolve2 75 provides incredible noise isolation and comfort for an all-round improved audio experience that feels as good as it sounds.”
