Singapore, 12 May 2020 – Jabra, leader in personal sound and office solutions, has launched the Evolve2 range, its second generation of professional headsets which offers best in-class noise cancellation to enhance productivity at work. The range, which consists of the Evolve2 85, Evolve2 65 and Evolve2 40 headsets, is engineered to allow users to achieve higher standards of concentration and collaboration while working in the office, at home or on the go.
Office work has changed significantly over the years. People now spend 20% more time collaborating with others than six years ago as work has become more complex.1 At an open office, more collaboration translates to more noise, which disrupts concentration at work. With more people working from home today, there are more distractions than before as well.
Being able to both concentrate deeply on work itself and collaborate with others seamlessly are two essential factors in boosting work productivity. To allow users to concentrate better, the Evolve2 range offers hybrid active (Evolve2 85) and strong passive noise cancellation (Evolve2 65 and Evolve2 40) to block out disruptive noise in the background.
Collaborations with teams have also been on the rise as work increasingly becomes more complex. To make collaboration seamless, the Evolve2 range has multiple microphones on the headset and the boom arms, thus making call quality noticeably clear. The range also comes with Microsoft Certified variant, which has a dedicated Teams button on the right ear cup to allow users to get on their Microsoft Teams meetings much faster.
Xuanling Lu, Jabra’s Regional Product Marketing Manager for Asia Pacific, said, “Collaboration and concentration are two important ingredients to working productively. To solve complex work, we need to be able to communicate with our teams quickly, easily and smoothly. At the same time, we also need to be able to tune out and concentrate on our individual work deeply. The Evolve2 range is specifically designed to allow the modern office worker to maximise productivity at work.”
Best-in-class ANC, provides crystal clear communication
The Evolve2 85 headset has a digital hybrid active noise cancellation (ANC), which is the best-in-class ANC in the industry currently. Hybrid ANC can suppress noise at a broader range of frequencies as compared to other types of ANCs.
To make communication crystal clear, the Evolve2 85 has 10 microphones in total, including two microphones in the fully integrated boom arm and eight in the ear cups.
With up to 37 hours of battery life, the wireless Evolve2 85 headset can be used for multiple calls and meetings throughout the week without the need to charge it frequently.
The Evolve2 range also features a 360-degree visibility for the Jabra signature busylight on both ear cups. With just a glance from any angle, people around the user can quickly tell if the user is busy when the red busylight is turned on. The busylight is an intuitive feature, it can turn on automatically when the user gets on a call. Users can also choose to manually turn on/off the feature.
On the right ear cup of the Microsoft Teams variant of the Evolve2 85, there is also a Microsoft Teams button which leads to the “Join Now” page where the user can confirm if he would like to enter the meeting room. Currently, the Evolve2 85 is pending Microsoft Teams certification.
Evolve2 65 and Evolve2 40:
Strong passive noise cancellation for enhanced productivity
The Evolve2 65 and Evolve2 40 (corded version of Evolve2 65), offer strong passive noise cancellation that is made possible by its overall design. Surrounding noise will be physically blocked out by its ear cushion and closed earcup design.
The Evolve2 65 and 40 have three microphones of which two are in the boom-arm and one in the right ear cup.
Environmentally friendly with new green packaging
The packaging for the Evolve2 range is 100% sustainable and is made up of 80% recycled materials. Water-based and eco-friendly soy oil-based inks are also used to reflect the design on the packaging. In addition, the packaging does not contain any plastic bag or foam. To reduce paper wastage, the packaging will also not include the User Manual, which has been moved online.
As a testament to having a highly sustainable packaging, Jabra has received the Forest Stewardship Council’s mix certification for its Evolve2 packaging.

The Jabra Evolve2 range will be available from June 2020 from all authorised Jabra partners. The Evolve2 85 and Evolve2 65 will be available in two colours: Black and Beige. The Evolve2 40 will be available in black.
