Jabra recently announced the launch of the latest in its Evolve range of enterprise headsets, the Jabra Evolve2 75 for hybrid future of work. The hybrid future of work is now and upon us, the changes to our work and living were brought upon by the ongoing global pandemic that began around March 2020. Many employees are adopting a hybrid working format of office and home/remote. In a recent Jabra report findings, 68% of employees see their ideal work week includes a hybrid model of working from home and an office (1). With the new Jabra Evolve2 75 headset, this introduces an innovative solution, specifically engineered to make flexible working simpler and more productive for everyone, everywhere.
Jabra’s latest hybrid working research shows that 85% of knowledge workers said that bring confident in their audio, video and connectivity allows them to excel at work (2). With all these key points from the latest research, the new Jabra Evolve2 75 headset comes into play, it aims to be the flexibility hero, providing comfort, concentration, collaboration and insights at its core. The points earlier pose the biggest challenges for organisations whereby their employees are working in locations that are changing. Therefore, Jabra packed the Evolve2 75 headset with new features that push sound quality and comfort even further. By maximising flexibility and increasing concentration, the Evolve2 75 headset delivers crystal-clear calls and pitch-perfect music in any surroundings.
The Jabra ear cups has been engineered to give a superior ergonomic fit for the user by reimagining the leatherette, dual cushion design to improve ventilation and reduce air pressure. This optimises the curvature and padding of the headband to ensure this headset stays securely in place. This not only avoid causing discomfort to the user, it also dramatically improves the overall active noise cancellation performance too, providing maximised comfort without compromising on sound quality.
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% 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.
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.”
