Jabra launched its new Evolve 65e soft neckband earbuds – a lightweight yet ultra-high performance device for work and play on the move.
The latest member of Jabra’s innovative Evolve franchise, combines outstanding consumer-grade comfort and usability with professional-grade sound quality, making them ideal for the mobile worker. The soft neckband offers a comfortable wearing style for those who prefer the freedom of 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 for a work-life on the go. The Jabra Evolve 65e will keep going as long as you do with a battery life that 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 busylight that serves as a ‘do not disturb’ sign, signalling to those around you that you’re not to be disturbed.
Skype for Business and UC-certification
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. Weighing in at just 36g and featuring snug-fitting oval earbuds, soft memory wire and multiple sizes of ear-gels and ear-wings with passive noise cancellation, users will barely know they’re wearing them.
Other key benefits include:
- All-day battery performance that supports eight hours of talk and 13 hours of music
- 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
- A built-in busylight that serves as a ‘do not disturb’ sign, signalling to those around you that you’re not to be disturbed
- Single-button connectivity to voice assistant
Holger Reisinger, SVP Enterprise Solutions at Jabra, said, “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. 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.”
