Jabra Evolve2 85 UC Stereo Wireless Headset
It’s Not Just New In Every Way.
It’s The New Standard.
NOISE CANCELLATION – Hear yourself think.
We set out to create instant quiet, anywhere. The result is a world-class professional headset with cutting-edge digital hybrid Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), powered by our most advanced digital chipset ever, and designed for incredible noise isolation; just put it on for instant immersion in your thoughts. It’s time to change the game. Welcome to the new standard.
BUSYLIGHT – Don’t hide when you’re in your stride.
We’ve taken our busylight to a whole new level, making it visible from any direction. The red light is automatically activated when you’re on a call or in a meeting, or you can activate it yourself at the touch of a button. So, even when you’re right in the middle of everything, your busylight will protect you from all angles, and all interruptions. For that reason, it’s like having a built-in security guard for your concentration.
MUSIC – Bigger speakers. Better sound. Boom.
We’ve built this headset with powerful leak-tolerant 40mm speakers. Factor in our advanced digital chipset and the latest AAC codec, and your music will be sounding better than ever. Good things come to those who wait. This is certainly the audio experience you’ve been waiting for.
CALLS – It’s your call…
We know that being heard and understood with absolute clarity keeps your calls seamless and professional. So, we took the incredible call performance of our world-leading Evolve Series, and we made it even better by building in 10 microphones (yes, 10), powered by that advanced digital chipset we keep talking about, for outstanding call quality, every time. Because when you’re making an important call, clarity is everything.
UC-CERTIFICATION – UC-certified means UC-satisfied.
Satisfaction guaranteed isn’t something you hear very often these days, but we’re bringing it back; Evolve2 85 works with all leading Unified Communications (UC) platforms, for truly seamless collaboration. If your UC platform of choice is Microsoft Teams, the Evolve2 85 is perfectly adapted and optimized to give you the best experience with the platform.
BATTERY – Long week? We’ve got you covered.
When you finally find a headset that you just can’t do without, it’s good to know you don’t have to. We’ve used our advanced battery efficiency technology to squeeze every last minute of juice out of this powerful headset. The result is an industry-leading 37-hour battery life (powered by that mighty little chipset again). And because we like to cover all bases, there’s always the handy charging stand – just in case. In short, the Evolve2 85 will get you through the week.
Full charge Get 37 hours battery life in 2.5 hours
Fast charge Get 8 hours battery life in 15 minutes
COMFORT – Upgrade to business class.
We took biometric measurements of hundreds of heads to create a perfect design that adjusts to fit every size and shape. Then, we added soft memory foam ear cushions to make it supremely comfortable; so comfortable, you’ll forget it’s even there. Finally, we assembled it using durable, premium materials. As a result, it’s comfort that’s in a class of its own.
TECHNOLOGY – Thinking outside the box.
As far as things in boxes go, this is kind of a big deal. Before you’ve even unboxed it, you’re holding a pioneering piece of tech that’s leagues ahead of any other headset. But because we have one eye on the future, firmware upgrades and value packs are already on the way to boost it even further. Consequently, if you think it’s great now, just wait…
DESIGN – Business. Casual.
Move seamlessly from the office to on-the-go, with a contemporary casual design and a discrete hidden boom arm that still guarantees exceptional professional sounding calls, even when tucked away. Most noteworthy, when you’re on the go, only you’ll know you’re working.
