Wireless Range – Free Range (Conversations, Not Chickens)
Whether you’re working from home or in the office, it’s nice to have the freedom to move around. Jabra Engage 55’s compact USB DECT adapter delivers a wireless range of up to 150m/490ft from your computer, and also makes it easy for you to move about with your laptop while you’re on a call.
Head to the kitchen for a coffee, or walk a few laps of the office, without worrying about whether your connection will hold.
DECT Wireless – Power.Range.Security
DECT wireless is specifically designed for wireless communications, making it an ideal choice for call-intensive workers who need additional mobility. In fact, the DECT wireless range of Jabra Engage 55 is up to 15 times the average range of a Class 2 Bluetooth® device.
And if you’re working in a busy office, DECT wireless is built to withstand the density of large numbers of people working in the same place, so you’ll get a clear, robust, and secure connection for your conversations.
Secure DECT Wireless Adapter – Like Fort Knox. But Smaller
However you’re working these days, if your conversations often include sensitive details, it’s important to know that the data is protected.
The ultra-secure wireless adapter for Jabra Engage 55 is DECT Security certified. But because your data security is so important to us, we go beyond the DECT Security Step C level with additional FIPS military-grade 256-bit encryption algorithms, to prevent eavesdropping and keep conversations secure.
Professional-Grade Conversations – This Sounds Serious
When you’re in back-to-back calls or virtual meetings, every word matters. Jabra Engage 55 features an impressive noise-canceling microphone that helps block out background noise to keep you sounding like a pro, whichever office you’re working from.
The speakers are optimized for speech clarity, while wideband audio delivers crisp, crystal clear, natural-sounding calls. So you can wave goodbye to crackly, robotic-sounding voices, and say hello to more engaging conversations.
Easy USB Connectivity – Coffee To Call In Seconds
From the moment you first unbox your new Jabra Engage 55, you’re ready to start having seamless, easy calls. Just plug the pre-paired USB DECT adapter into your computer and you’re good to go.
With this easy-to-use, single-connectivity headset, you’re never more that a few seconds from your first call on your computer.
Durable Adapter – As Flexible As Your Schedule
Whether you are hot desking or switching it up between home and the office our durable Link 400 adapter is built to withstand the demands of your day.
It’s designed to bend, reducing the risk of damage even if you leave it plugged into your laptop. Perfect for companies with clear desk policies, or workers who like a change of scenery.
Lightweight Comfort – Long-Day-Proof
An uncomfortable headset can really distract your focus from the conversation. That’s why we’ve made sure Jabra Engage 55 is lightweight, with a low clamping force, to avoid pressure and heat build-up.
So even when you’re in back-to-back calls all day, you can rely on your headset to help you keep your cool.
Sidetone – It’s Oh So Quiet
Nobody wants to be that guy shouting on all their calls. That’s why Jabra Engage 55 has adjustable Sidetone built in.
By playing a little of your voice into your speakers as you talk, Sidetone helps you to regulate your speech volume, reassuring you that your microphone is working, and combating conversation fatigue.
Hearing Safety – It’s What We Do
We’ve engineered Jabra Engage 55 with SafeTone™ 2.0, for superior built-in hearing protection.
What’s SafeTone 2.0 made up of?
- PeakStop™ prevents sudden loud audio spikes
- IntelliTone™ 2.0 limits overall audio exposure
- Speech Level Normalization and Intelligent Acoustic Shock Prevention maintain comfortable audio levels throughout the day
This advanced technology protects your hearing well-being, while also helping to prevent the virtual conversation fatigue that can result from poor audio.

Our Jabra Xpress and Jabra Direct software will keep your headset up-to-date and running as smoothly as the day you unboxed it, for many years to come.
Busylight – Protect Your Focus
The built-in busylight on Jabra Engage 55 helps you wave goodbye to interruptions. Automatically glowing red when you’re on a call, it shows anyone nearby that you’re in ‘do not disturb’ mode.
