Jabra’s new earbuds aim to be the perfect office companion

Jabra announced the availability of the Evolve 75e, UC-certified wireless earbuds.

The new edition to the Evolve range of professional headsets is Skype for Business certified and features Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) and up to 14 hours of battery life on a single charge, all neatly fitted in the around-the-neck wireless earbud design.

The Evolve 75e’s design brings a consumer design into a professional environment and includes all of the best features from the Evolve range.

Research unveiled that the majority of today’s flexible workers (78%) say their personal productivity at the office is impacted by noise and interruptions.

The earbud form factor supposedly helps to maintain collaboration, concentration and productivity in busy, open plan offices without the need for designated quiet rooms.

Currently, 31% of business professionals wear earbuds in the workplace.

The Evolve 75e has been designed to meet this demand by leveraging Jabra’s microphone expertise.

The Skype for Business certified three-microphone technology creates a talk-zone, offering a professional grade call quality.

The device has an around-the-neck, wireless earbud design.

This wearing style offers the flexibility and mobility to work wherever the user may be.

The Evolve 75e also aims to improve collaboration in the office and gives users the ability to make work calls both inside and outside the office.

The magnetic earbuds snap together when not in use and this activates the power-save mode.

Five buttons allow for quick control of calls and music, including a smart button for one-touch access to all major virtual assistants, including Siri, Google Now, Cortana and Bixby.

The vibrating neckband gives silent notifications to make sure users don’t disturb others and that calls are never missed.

Jabra SVP Holger Reisinger says, “The Jabra Evolve 75e delivers professional sound for calls and music.

“These professional UC-certified wireless earbuds meet the needs of today’s mobile and increasingly connected worker who demands the same user experience from both consumer and professional solutions.”
