Many people use a headset at work these days. This is especially true if you work in an open-plan office called a ‘cube farm’. You’ll see the value of a Jabra Evolve 80 Black Friday Deals 2021 good headset if you spend a lot of time on the phone, whether you are making calls or listening to podcasts.
This week, I am reviewing Jabra’s Evolve80 headset. It is a high-end device that is aimed at power users. The Evolve80 also features large audio drivers which means it can be used for both listening to music and for chatting. The ear cushions are covered in vinyl and can be moved up or out of the way when not in use. The Evolve 80 isn’t quite as comfy as the Bose QC35, but it does have a few rather clever tricks up its sleeve.
The Jabra Evolve 80, like the Bose QC35 has active noise-cancellation. By using microphones to detect ambient noise, the noise cancelling circuitry subtracts that noise and almost eliminates any low-end or rumbling frequencies which can make headphones so uncomfortable when used in public places, such as offices, airplanes, and trains. Bose’s noise cancellation technology is at the top of its class.
The boom microphone delivers some of the best and clearest speech performance I have ever heard in a headset. It’s not surprising that Jabra, along with Plantronics, are experts in this type of technology. Voice calls that have impact are made easier by being able to hear and make yourself heard. A headset such as this is essential for anyone whose job involves them talking online or dictating documents for extended periods of time.

The Evolve80 has a 3.5mm connector that allows it to be used with all smartphones, tablets, and laptops. It’s easy to use while on the move. The headset comes with a soft carry case, but it is too big to fit in a small bag. The Evolve 80 is compatible with tablets and smartphones. It also includes a puck-shaped USB controller that can be connected to a PC or Mac. You can use the buttons on the puck to adjust volume, mute, or accept calls. Intelligent Call Transfer is a smart feature that allows you to seamlessly switch between your devices. This feature is perfect for anyone who has ever had to hold an important conversation at night.

This is great for when someone wants to send you a message, or if you just want to listen to some office gossip.
The active noise-cancellation function requires power. The battery comes with a built-in rechargeable and can be used for up to 24 hours. This is a great amount of time, and it’s enough to last for long flights. The USB controller can be used with your computer to power the headset and recharge the battery.

Sidetone is a term that describes when a little bit of your voice is being transmitted back to your headset so you don’t shout at your caller.

Many people work in large offices that are packed with people in tightly packed spaces. These are often affectionately called “Cube farms”.
I do not work in any of these places. I work from home. We share one thing in common: worker distraction. Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), can make it extremely difficult to be productive, especially for those who have it.
Much of my work, like many other “Knowledge Workers”, involves heavy email and intense voice communication. I am particularly fond of long conference calls using unified communication (UC) technologies such as Microsoft Lync which is part of Office 365.
Other popular UC technologies include Citrix GoToMeeting and Cisco’s UC/WebEx. There are also consumer-grade VOIP/video conferencing technologies like Skype, Apple’s Facetime, and Google Hangouts.
I can often be on these calls for many hours at a stretch. My work at home means there’s always some distraction. For example, my wife might walk in the room and ask me a question.
Low-frequency noises from fans and air conditioners, and occasionally a truck, can be heard as my office windows face the street. There is also the thrumming sound that jet engines make while I am on an airplane, when I travel.
I’ve tried many different methods over the years to try and isolate myself from distractions, but none have succeeded in creating an isolated work zone for every situation.
Some VOIP headsets can be used on desktops, but not for mobile phones. While some Bluetooth earpieces can be used for mobility, they are not ideal for busy office environments.
After I’m done with work, I might want music or to watch a movie on my Surface or iPad. For this, you will need a completely different headset. The speaker drivers designed for vocal use don’t always produce high-fidelity sound and have different connectors, such as USB or mini-jack.

The Evolve 80, which comes in two versions, optimized for Microsoft Lync and Cisco UC, looks like a pair of high-end entertainment noise cancellation over-the-ear cupping headphones. It is similar to the Sennheiser, Bose, and SONY models. Jabra Evolve 80 Black Friday Deals 2021
