Jabra’s new wireless work/play earbuds

03 Apr 2019

Jabra is releasing the Evolve 65e soft neckband earbuds a new model that combines consumer design and usability with professional sound quality. 

The neckband offers a comfortable wearing style for those who prefer a wireless headset, but are less keen on a traditional headband style.

The Jabra Evolve 65e is engineered to deliver professional, UC-certified sound, while also featuring Skype for Business certification, ensuring that users can enjoy crystal-clear call or music quality.

The Jabra Evolve 65e battery life supports eight hours of talk and 13 hours of music.

The earbuds come with a Jabra Link 370 USB Bluetooth adapter, enabling simultaneous connectivity to your laptop or PC and your smartphone. 

With a wireless range of 30m for PC and 10m for mobile, users can be sure they will never miss an important call, wherever they are or whatever they are doing.

If you want to make it clear that you do not want to be interrupted, switch on the built-in busy light that serves as a ‘do not disturb’ sign.

Jabra Evolve 65e achieves Skype for Business and UC-certification thanks to its four-microphone system. 

With two in the microphone box capturing voice and one in each earbud that listens to ambient noise around the user, the device uses DSP algorithms to find the optimum voice-to-noise ratio for perfect clarity for the mobile-first professional.

As well as meeting enterprise-levels of sound quality, the Jabra Evolve 65e is as comfortable as any competing consumer device. 

They weigh in at 36g and include oval earbuds, soft memory wire and multiple sizes of ear-gels and ear-wings with passive noise cancellation.

Other features include:

  • Integration with the Jabra Sound+ app, which enables users to customise their calls and music experience, provides instruction manuals and helpful hints, and enables users to update the device's software from within the app
     
  • Jabra’s HearThrough technology for when you need to be able to hear what's happening around you
     
  • Single-button connectivity to voice assistant

“Enterprises are constantly seeking new ways to enable their employees to be productive wherever they are, making UC one of the most important mobile technologies today,'' says Jabra A/NZ managing director David Piggott. 

''But if mobile workers are to use professional headsets, they will expect the same wearing-styles and form-factors, great comfort and range of features that they get from their consumer devices.”

“That’s why we engineered the Jabra Evolve 65e with both the user and the business in mind. By combining a lightweight, ultra-comfortable neckband design with the highest standards of sound quality together with a range of user and enterprise management options the latest addition to the mobile-first line-up of the Evolve family will be an employee’s constant companion for productivity and music on the move.”
