SmartHouse - - FIRST LOOK | JABRA - Writ­ten by David Richards

Be­ing in the me­dia busi­ness one is con­stantly on the phone more so on a mo­bile than land­line and whether I am in­ter­view­ing some­one or lis­ten­ing to some spin from a PR Com­pany, I find that con­stantly hav­ing to pick up a mo­bile to an­swer a call or hav­ing to make calls us­ing a speaker can be a real pain.

And that's where the new Jabra Evolve Head­phones re­ally kicks in, es­pe­cially for some­one who is con­stantly on the go and wants to elim­i­nate back­ground noise, while also crav­ing a com­fort­able pair of head­phones that fit com­fort­able on the head for long pe­ri­ods of time.

De­signed for the open of­fice the Jabra Evolve 75 head­phones are not only ideal in a loud noisy of­fice en­vi­ron­ment I found them in­cred­i­bly valu­able on the road es­pe­cially at an air­port or air­line lounge.

The first thing you no­tice is that the noise cancelling is ex­cel­lent, the head­phones block out most back­ground noise, which is not sur­pris­ing as they are made by Euro­pean Com­pany Jabra, who has a her­itage mak­ing hear­ing aids and in ear de­vices.

Over­all the qual­ity is ex­cel­lent and the de­sign out­stand­ing, for ex­am­ple all one must do, to mute a call is flick the mi­cro­phone arm up. Both the ear cups and the over­all head­phones are made from pre­mium ma­te­rial which is es­sen­tial for a de­vice you could well use five work­ing days of the week and for sev­eral hours.

The other big stand­out is the charg­ing dock which while be­ing unique in that the right head­phone can be sim­ply docked for charg­ing it is clev­erly de­signed to fit com­fort­able on a desk. One can also charge the head­phones with­out the dock by sim­ply plug­ging in a sep­a­rate charger.

The head­set is the lat­est ad­di­tion to the suc­cess­ful Jabra Evolve Se­ries which has sold over 2.5 mil­lion units world­wide.

The head­phones come in a neat com­pact case that is small enough to eas­ily fit into the pocket of a travel bag as they are ex­tremely light­weight at 177g.

They de­liver high qual­ity sound and once you ac­ti­vate its noise can­cel­la­tion fea­ture, you block al­most all the out­side dis­tract­ing sound es­pe­cially on an air­craft though I would like to see more than 14 hours bat­tery life.

The leather ear cush­ions, are very com­fort­able es­pe­cially when over the ears for an hour or more.

When on a call you will quickly no­tice that these head­phones have ex­tremely good speak­ers for both mu­sic they de­liver HD voice for crys­tal clear calls, this tech­nol­ogy is built into sev­eral new gen­er­a­tion smart­phones as stan­dard.

I even lis­tened to a Net­flix Full HD Movie with these head­phones af­ter pair­ing them with an LF TV.

Dual Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity sup­ports calls and mu­sic by al­low­ing the user to si­mul­ta­ne­ously pair the head­set with two con­nected de­vices. The head­phones have a wire­less range of 30 me­tres for note­books and 10 me­tres when con­nected to a smart­phone.

These head­phones are also con­fig­ured to be in­te­grated with lead­ing uni­fied com­mu­ni­ca­tions (UC) plat­forms in­clud­ing Skype for Busi­ness and Cisco cer­ti­fi­ca­tion.

Con­nect­ing to a PC or smart­phone en­abled with Blue­tooth is straight­for­ward all you must do is hold the Blue­tooth ac­ti­va­tion but­ton for 4 sec­onds.
