Whether you're using it for work or pleasure, you won't go wrong with the Jabra Evolve2 75. Not only is it one of the best wireless enterprise headsets you can buy now, it is pretty good at playing your favourite tunes, too. Besides the excellent call clarity and superb active noise cancellation, this headset is also comfortable and lightweight. The only downside is its price, but if you're spending hours in virtual meetings and calls, it's probably a good investment.
- Comes with USB-A or USB-C Bluetooth dongle
- Eight microphones
- Jabra Advanced active noise cancellation
- Up to 36 hours music playback with ANC off
The Evolve2 75 has eight “strategically-placed” microphones to ensure the best call quality. I assume most of these microphones are in the boom arm, which can be hidden in the right ear cup when not in use. Hiding the boom arm also mutes the microphone, while pulling it down will answer an incoming call. You can also manually mute or unmute the headset by pressing a button on the boom. This button also activates the default voice assistant if the Jabra's connected to a phone. In short, the controls for the microphone are pretty intuitive. More importantly, my voice came across clearly to the other party while surrounding noise like my ceiling fan (and sounds of my kids playing nearby) was suitably muted. Your colleagues will also definitely notice the red busylight on both earcups when you're in a call.
In addition, the Jabra's excellent active noise cancellation blocks most distractions during calls. This feature is very effective and doesn't overwhelm your ears with pressure like some ANC implementations. You can also adjust the degree of the ANC using the Jabra Sound+ app (for phones) or Jabra Direct (Windows/Mac). Meanwhile, the HearThough mode lets you hear your surroundings via the headset. This mode is helpful for my ageing ears, with the headset acting almost like a pseudo hearing aid. I am also impressed by the Jabra's soft and comfortable ear cushions. I usually dislike on-ear headphones as they tend to squash my ears after extended use. But the Jabra is an exception — I can wear it for hours without feeling pinched unlike other similar headphones, like the EPOS Adapt 261.
The Jabra sounds great when playing music. The bass is tight while the mids and highs are distinct. You can play around with the audio profile via the equaliser to get your preferred sound. It probably helps that the Sound+ app can also calibrate the audio to your ears through a hearing test of sorts. Another handy feature: The music playback stops automatically when you remove the headset and resumes when you put it back on. My review set also comes with the optional charging stand, which is a good place to rest the headset when not in use. Alternatively, you can keep the headset in its soft travel case.
Besides picking the colour (black or beige), there are several variants of the Jabra Evolve2 75. You can choose between a USB-A or USB-C dongle, though the headset also connects directly via Bluetooth without one. There's also the option of either the Unified Communications version or the Microsoft Teams certified model. The headset alone costs S$549 while adding the charging stand brings that up to S$628. However, I have seen it going for over S$400 on Shopee — you can also buy it from Amazon.
