The Jabra Engage 55 is a brand-new DECT wireless professional headset designed for superior conversation quality. It comes with improved noise-cancelling technology and microphone performance, enabling more employees to have meetings in the same space without any interference. They also offers the best level of security of any wireless headset available, making it the ideal headset for those working across all industries, remotely or otherwise.

Virtual fatigue

We are now spending more time on calls than ever before for the average UC user. Statistics (1) have shown that annual Zoom meeting minutes have increased by 3,300% in 2020-21 and there was a 645% increase in MS Teams users within the time frame.

Research (2) has also shown that a person’s credibility in virtual calls relies on their audio quality; the poorer the quality, the less credible we consider someone to be. When we experience poor quality audio online, our brain naturally strains to figure out what is being said. If this is done continuously, our energy and alertness is drained, which then impacts well-being and productivity. Therefore, getting the online experience right is extremely important to ensure that employees’ do not suffer from virtual fatigue.

Crystal clear conversations

Virtual meetings are becoming the standards for businesses, therefore it’s now more crucial than ever for employees to be heard and be able to speak freely with their co-workers or customers without being interrupted or having their voices muffled. The Jabra Engage 55 therefore has a noise cancelling and voice enhancing microphone that removes background sounds whilst keeping your voice crystal clear for more focused conversation experiences.

It’s common for employees to be in calls for hours every day, it’s even more important than ever to protect their hearing and well-being. Therefore, the Jabra Engage 55 also offers additional hearing protection benefits.

Jabra SafeTone 2.0™ provides speech level normalisation, which allows the user to adjust the volume level of incoming calls according to their preferences. The headset also has intelligent acoustic shock protection, which reduces potentially harmful noise levels without affecting the audio quality. As well as this, it has PeakStop at 105 dB, the proactive removal of sudden loud sounds and BalancedVoice™, in which incoming sound is processed to be clearer without increasing the level.

Maximum security

The new future of work is upon us, the current remote working trend is going to stay, however this makes companies more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Therefore, the subject on security is more important than ever. Cybercrime rises due to eavesdropping, along with data breaches that they causes, and the growing importance of safeguarding client discussions, which often involve sensitive information.

The Jabra Engage 55 includes additional features that make it the safest professional wireless headset on the market. The connection between the wireless adapter and the headset is certified to the highest DECT Security – Level C – making it ultra-secure. It also has additional FIPS military-grade 256-bit encryption algorithms to effectively prevent eavesdropping on conversations.

For added mobility, the Jabra Engage 55 features a long wireless range. With a range of up to 150m/490ft, the Jabra Engage 55 gives employees the freedom to move around their home or office work environments without compromising call quality. The adapter is not only more advanced than its counterparts, it’s also designed to last.

The lightweight design of the headset also ensures a personalised fit with adaptable ear cups suited for all-day comfort. Users have a choice of wearing styles: with stereo, mono and convertible styles, there is an option for every user. To save any issues from setting up, the headset comes pre-paired out of the box with a visible status light, which indicates to your surrounding that you are busy and don’t want to be disturbed.

The new Engage headset works with all leading Unified Communications and Contact Centre platforms, including MS Teams, Zoom, Cisco, Unify, Amazon Chime, Google Meet, Avaya, and Alcatel Lucent.

“Research clearly shows that security is an increasing factor for businesses when deciding on new call technology. At the same time, safeguarding information exchange should not affect call quality, customer satisfaction, and staff productivity,” said Anders Hvelplund, SVP of Call-Centric BU and Global Services at Jabra. “With the Jabra Engage 55, anyone who engages in back-to-back calls are guaranteed a superior call experience, and those who work remotely will no longer have to be concerned about eavesdropping and therefore data breaches.”
