Studies show that knowledge workers are interrupted every 10 minutes. And it takes 23 minutes to return back to a productive state. This is where the new Jabra Evolve headset comes in to boost focus and productivity by creating a complete personal concentration zone specifically in open, loud and distracting workspaces.
The business-skewed series comprises five headsets that offer an assortment of features and benefits – 20, 30, 40, 65 and 80.
All are purpose-built to shut out noise in the open office, and also includes a feature that signals when a user doesn’t want to be disturbed.
Renowned for its industrial design, Jabra has cleverly made the microphone boom arm stow-able into the headband.
The Jabra Evolve series carries industry-leading noise cancellation. The flagship Evolve 80 introduces large ear cushions with foam padding that adapts to you. The 80 features active noise cancellation which gives you a full concentration zone experience.
The new series also has a busy light integrated into the headphones that signals your availability to your colleagues.
When not used for work, the new headsets also provide high-end sound quality for entertainment.
The Evolve 65 has built-in Bluetooth capability which makes for easy pairing with your devices. It also includes plug-and-play options for PCs through USB and 3.5mm stereo jack. It boasts hands-free communication of up to 30 meters. Built-in NFC makes it ultra seasy to connect and interact with smart devices and interactive tags.
At the first time ever launch in the region, Ben Samman, Managing Director, ASEAN, GN Netcom (S) Pte Ltd said, “The Jabra Evolve headsets create a complete personal concentration zone that boosts focus and work satisfaction for employees in increasingly open, loud and distracting workspaces.”
Jabra currently occupies 50% of the unified communications (UC) market for headsets and are hardware partners for UC solution providers like Avaya, Microsoft, CISCO and IBM.
Jabra recently clinced two awards from Frost & Sullivan’s 2014 Best Practices Award – recognised as Asia Pacific Headset Vendor of the Year and Asia Pacific Unified Communications Headset Vendor of the Year.

I was impressed with the UC headsets, especially the top-of-the-line Evolve 80 which I thought was exquisitely built and had exceptional audio quality. The active noise cancellation gives you that personal space you need for uninterrupted work. The foam padding makes the headset comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
Look out for a review of the flagship Evolve 80 soon.
