Jabra, prominent in audio and video solutions, expanded its line of professional headsets, the Jabra Evolve series, with new Evolve2 mid-range headsets. Per a statement, the Jabra Evolve2 65 Flex, the Jabra Evolve2 55 and Jabra Evolve2 50 are suitable for ultra-flexible hybrid working.
According to the Lowell, Mass.-based company, the new Evolve2 headsets thus empower users with the most useful and professional features. With this, users can protect their focus zone and take calls and meetings, no matter their environment. Additionally, they boast optimized sound for professional use and music. As a result, there is no need to switch headsets during break times.
Jabra Evolve2 65 Flex
To provide maximum flexibility, the Jabra Evolve2 65 Flex has a unique fold-and-go design. It also comes with a collapsible hinged headband and slimmed-down earcups. The Evolve2 65 Flex also features a soft sustainable pouch. This allows users to easily tuck it into even the smallest bag or pocket. With the headset, audio is clear even in loud locations, thanks to a powerful chipset, advanced digital algorithm and beamforming Jabra ClearVoice microphones for the open office. The chipset and noise-cancelling technology delivers optimal Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), says Jabra. Additionally, the close-fitting memory foam earcups help seal out even more of the surroundings.
Evolve2 65 Flex features Jabra Air Comfort technology and flexible earcups that rotates to move whenever users do. This makes the headset incredibly comfortable, no matter how long it is on. Jabra also notes that the unique technology layers ultra-soft perforated foam inside the collapsible headband for a gentle cushioning effect.
The headset has a 360-degree busylight, a shorter hide-away boom arm and it is certified for all leading virtual meeting platforms. This includes Microsoft Teams, Google Meet and Zoom. Moreover, workers are equipped for all-day work and play with the headset promising up to 32 hours of music time and up to 20 hours of talk time with ANC/busylight off.
Jabra Evolve2 55 and 50
With more flexible working, and therefore more potential for distractions, Jabra says it is bringing Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) into more professional headsets. This comes in a wireless option, the Evolve2 55 and a corded version, the Evolve2 50. The headsets are built with powerful ANC that has a unique acoustic chamber design, 28mm custom speakers, a specially designed chipset that powers speech-separating, and two premium noise-cancelling microphones.
Both products are certified for all leading virtual-meeting platforms. This includes Microsoft Teams, Google Meet and Zoom. Moreover, the products provide a comfortable fit with Jabra Air Comfort technology.
“The current generation of hybrid workers are in search of comfortable, flexible and easy to use devices for both work and music. Meanwhile, headsets are evolving from mere accessories to a business necessity for productive work,” says Holger Reisinger, SVP for enterprise solutions at Jabra. “This was why we sought to create high-quality, mid-range headsets so we can meet the needs of both the business and end-users. Particularly with the foldable version, everyone will have the ability to look, sound and be professional, working from anywhere.”
