Jabra Evolve 75 UC Stereo
The Jabra Evolve 75 is a professional Bluetooth headset with superior Active Noise Cancelling allowing you block out distractions in an open office.
The open plan office is here to stay and whilst it enables greater collaboration and a more social atmosphere, when you need to focus, the interruptions and general noise levels can simply stop you from working effectively. Cue rousing hero music... Evolve 75 to the rescue!
Evolves come with a USB dongle to enable them to work with your computer or laptop (NOT A DESK PHONE unless you have Bluetooth or USB functionality on the handset). So it's for video conferencing, Skype, softphones, dictation, listening to audio files (Pandora, Spotify etc and of course your own music files) or video. And of course the headset itself is Bluetooth so your mobile phone will also connect.
The Active Noise Cancelling helps you manage background noise allowing you to focus on the task at hand (or your music/call). You don't want to have to take the headset off to turn off the ANC every time you need to chat so there's a handy 'listen in function' allowing you to clearly hear what's going on around you. (Huge potential for a spot of eavesdropping too!)
The Evolve 75s are ALL about concentration and nothing kills concentration like persistent interruptions. Jabra have added very useful busy lights - red lights on both earcups. They come on automatically when you're on a call or you can turn them on with a couple of button presses to show you're not available.
Please note the headset can only be worn with the microphone arm on the right side. It doesn't rotate so it can also be worn to the left. This is because it has a handy mute function; if you flip the mic arm up so it's parallel with the headband, the mic mutes, then unmutes when you bring it back down again. This is a nice intuitivefeature and stops you fumbling for the mute button if you're about to sneeze or cough! That said if you always wear the mic on the left it may take some getting used to.
Unlike many headsets this Jabra is great at both voice calls and music reproduction so you can listen on your rad tunes and use it for calls without compromising on sound quality.
The Evolve 75 has 4 models. UC and MS; UC versions are for all platforms EXCEPT Skype for Business. Whilst the UC version will work with S4B, the MS version comes out of the box optimised for use with S4B & Lync and will update your status when in use. There are also options with and without the charge stand. All the stand does is charge the headset, the non-stand version has a cable to facilitate charging.
All Jabra USB headsets and speakerphones work with all the most popular online voice call services:
- Skype for Business
- Cisco WebEx
- Google Hangouts
- Join Me
- Adobe Connect
- Onstream Meetings
The Evolve 75 is an excellent & affordable Active Noise Cancelling headset great for music and calls, a must for concentration. Just a reminder though, it is Bluetooth and USB so please ensure your handset has a USB port available.
