We just opened up the office, and it's clear that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the face of office work. Hybrid work options are available for most employees with connectivity and video calling performance standards. Jabra has several office headset options, with the Evolve2 75 offering the latest and greatest technology.

The new Jabra Evolve2 75 was engineered specifically for hybrid work with Jabra's Advanced Active Noise Cancellation technology coming to the Evolve line of headsets. This advanced ANC functionality allows the end-user to fully adjust the level of noise cancellation they are comfortable with while also offering HearThrough and more through the Jabra MySound application.

Jabra didn't just incorporate new technology for this hybrid work headset. Still, the company also incorporates a new dual-foam technology and comfort pattern to make the headset comfortable for extended wear. Comfort is extremely important when you spend half of your day on Teams calls, and office staff will greatly appreciate this improvement.

The retractable boom mic is also 33% shorter than the Evolve 75, and it tucks away in the headset when not in use. The boom arm meets Microsoft's Open Office requirements when flipped down in performance mode too.
