Jabra launches the Evolve2 enterprise-grade headsets
Thanks to recent public-health-related events, there are many workers out there who now need to think about ways to insulate their professional activities from their home lifes in a serious and pressing way. Jabra may have just launched at least part of a solution to this problem with its new Evolve2 series. They have been specifically designed with features such as memory-foam ear-cups, new mic technology and Hybrid ANC so as to prevent distractions and promote concentration.
With their broad UC-standard (which exist to ensure quality and reliability on audio collaboration platforms) compatibility and improved Bluetooth range, the new headsets are also ideal for interprofessional communication and teamwork. In addition, Jabra asserts that they will also acquire Microsoft Teams certifications in the near future.
This line's flagship, the Evolve2 85, also boasts 40 millimeter (mm) drivers and a 10-mic system. They are rated to deliver up to 40% improvements in audio transmissions and twice the vocal distractor management compared to their predecessors.
This headset is wireless and has a battery life of up to 37 hours, as does the Evolve2 65 mid-tier product. This option has only 3 mics (2 of which, as with the 85, are in the boom arm), as does the 45, a wired version of this set. This most cost-effective variant starts at US$129 for a mono version, or $139 for a stereo upgrade.
The 65 will go for $239 or $249 for a mono or stereo unit respectively, whereas the 85 is priced at $449. Alternatively, all 3 of these will each come bundled with a charger/desk-stand for $50 more. The Evolve2 professional headset range will become available in April 2020, from Jabra authorized dealers, select retailers or the OEM's website.
