Jabra, the world’s leading professional audio brand, introduces new products in its leading headset and conference speaker line to empower the modern hybrid worker. The Jabra Evolve series sees the addition of Evolve2 65 Flex and Evolve2 mid-range headsets, Evolve2 50 and Evolve2 55, that supports work from anywhere. Meanwhile, Jabra Speak’s market-leading line-up of professional speakerphones expands with Jabra Speak2 75, Speak2 55 and Speak2 40 that offers mobile, futureproof sound clarity and quality.
Evolving hybrid work with the new Evolve2 range
The new Evolve2 headsets are meant to empower users with the most useful and professional features to protect their focus zone and enable them to take calls and meetings no matter their environment. Additionally, they have optimized sound for professional use and music, so there is no need to switch headsets when it is time for a break.
The Jabra Evolve2 65 Flex stands out with its unique fold-and-go design with a collapsible hinged headband, slimmed-down earcups and a shorter hide-away boom arm. With the headset, users can be sure to be heard clearly even in loud locations, thanks to a powerful chipset, advanced digital algorithm, and beamforming Jabra ClearVoice microphones for the open office. The chipset and noise-cancelling technology delivers a best-in-class* Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and close-fitting memory foam earcups help seal out even more of the surroundings. In addition, it features the Jabra Air Comfort technology and flexible earcups that rotate to move whenever users do – making the headset incredibly comfortable, no matter how long it is worn.
Jabra is also bringing Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) into a wider range of professional headsets, with a wireless option, Evolve2 55, and a corded version, Evolve2 50. The headsets are built with powerful ANC that has a unique acoustic chamber design, 28mm custom speakers, a specially designed chipset that powers speech-separating, and two premium noise-cancelling microphones.
All products are certified for all leading virtual meeting platforms, like Microsoft Teams, Google Meet and Zoom.
Making hybrid work life sound better with the new Speak2 range
The new Speak2 range is engineered specifically to meet the need for an intelligent speaker that is built to handle anything a busy hybrid working day throws at you – whether it be conference meetings, direct calls, streaming media, presentation or other. For all meeting participants to not only feel heard, but also listened to, the Speak2 range is engineered to go beyond standard speakerphone performance, and a full duplex audio.
The Jabra Speak2 75 is like a boardroom in your pocket, being the only speakerphone in this range to feature a custom-designed Microphone Quality Indicator. The 360-degree light ring shows users how well their voice is being picked up by the microphones, giving users the reassurance of true professionalism from wherever they may be working. This speakerphone includes an advanced full range 65mm speaker, offering a dramatically more powerful audio experience and ultimately resulting in much more efficient and productive meetings.
For those who like choice, use the USB cable for a direct line with the Speak2 40 or go wireless with the Speak2 75 or Speak2 55. The Speak2 range ultimately offers, professional, pocketable, and portable devices packed with the latest technology. Each Speak2 product is also designed to work with all leading virtual meeting platforms, meaning users can participate confidently in calls and meetings from any location, without the worry of poor audio quality or connectivity issues.
Peter Jayaseelan, Vice President & Managing Director – South Asia and Head – Public Sector (APAC), Jabra says, “At Jabra, we are constantly striving to provide innovative solutions for today’s evolved consumers who are in search for comfortable, flexible, and easy to use devices for both work and music.
