Jabra Evolve 75 review – Jabra have finally launched the brand new Evolve 75 office headset with “superior” noise cancellation technology…
The Jabra Evolve 75 review is brought to you by honest professionals aiming to assist you with your shopping experience…
There’s been a fair amount of suspense in waiting for the release of the Jabra Evolve 75 office headset – and the wait is finally over. Described as “The best wireless headset for concentration in the open office” by the Jabra team, it’s not to dissimilar to the marketing around the previous Evolve headsets – however it is fair to say that they usually match up to the description. There’s a wide range available including UC (Unified Communications) and MS (Microsoft Skype).
Jabra Evolve 75 Office Headset has Superior Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) – but there’s more…
The 75 is physically quite similar to the Jabra Evolve 80. It does however carry with it a higher spec including a substantial active noise cancellation upgrade and larger, more padded cushions for what they describe themselves as “superior comfort.”
However unlike previous models, this prestige new design has four microphones with the said active noise cancellation (ANC) , making it possibly the best yet for such purposes. It has also been optimised for Skype for Business (MS versions only) making it a useful headset for a busy, modern workplace environment. To clarify, the 75 is a far superior and higher end headset with improved similarities to its older cousins.
Jabra Evolve 75 Review: “Outstanding sound for calls and music”
Words from the manufacturers themselves – and we completely agree. But again, much of the other Evolve headsets are designed with this in mind and generally even a Jabra Evolve 40 does a good job of switching between calls and music. The 75 is a larger, more comfortable and more upgraded model which has certainly taken the lead in noise cancellation technology.

The headset is the latest addition to the successful Jabra Evolve series, which has sold more than 2.5 million units worldwide. The range was developed to reflect the way people work and enable focused and distraction-free performance in open office settings.
As stated on their site, “The Jabra Evolve 75 takes this promise to the next level by combining the strongest parts of the Evolve range: wireless freedom, great sound, ANC and a busy light.”
The Jabra Evolve 75 comes equipped with world-class speakers for music and high-definition (HD) voice for crystal clear calls. Dual Bluetooth connectivity supports calls and music by allowing the user to simultaneously pair the headset with two connected devices, such as a computer and smartphone.
Recent research from Jabra found that knowledge workers lose 24 minutes each day due to noise and interruptions, while 78 percent believe their productivity is negatively impacted. The Jabra Evolve 75 is the ultimate business tool for sound and freedom, helping workers collaborate, concentrate and remain productive in busy, open place offices without the need for designated quiet rooms.
“The premise behind the open plan office is to foster collaboration and improve communication among employees. But despite their many benefits, they have become breeding grounds for unsatisfactory labour output”, commented Holger Reisinger, SVP, Jabra Business Solutions.
“Interruptions from colleagues and the noise generated in these environments are negatively impacting workers and contributing to lackluster performance. Increasingly, knowledge workers are being forced into isolation to do their jobs. The Jabra Evolve 75 provides businesses with an alternative solution to support an open office philosophy that’s conducive to better performance.”
