My engineering firm is working remotely and most of our collaboration is powered by Microsoft Teams. Jabra just announced new Evolve2 headsets that look to be perfect for my needs with Microsoft Teams certification and numerous microphones to help maintain clear, focused communications.

As the world moves to working from home, people are being challenged with staying focused on work while many distractions present themselves in environments not necessarily optimized for work. The new Evolve2 85, Evolve2 65, and Evolve2 40 UC headsets are designed to help you block out noise and provide clear voice communications.

Features of the three new headset models include:

  • Evolve2 85: A wireless headset that offers up to 37 hours of battery life with 40mm speakers for outstanding music playback. Ten microphones are included in the headset with two in the integrated boom arm that swings up and hides away for mobile use. Digital Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation technology is present for the ultimate in noise isolation to help keep you focused on your work.
  • Evolve2 65: Another wireless headset with three microphones, two in the boom arm and one in the right ear cup. 37 hours of wireless performance are also present on this headset.
  • Evolve2 40: This model is a wired version of the Evolve2 65 with all of the same audio features.

The wireless Evolve2 models include the Jabra Link 380, a new Bluetooth adapter available in either USB-C or USB-A since so many new computers today are incorporating USB-C as the new standard for peripherals.
