A busy light automatically illuminates when you are on a call and can also be manually operated when you don’t want to be disturbed. Together the ear cups and busy light will help you get more work done with fewer interruptions. And since computer connectivity is in a bit of a transitional period, Jabra has made versions of the headset available with your choice of USB-A or USB-C connectivity.

Of course, memory foam ear cups and a busy light don’t matter if a headset sounds terrible. Thankfully, this inexpensive comes from Jabra, open of the leading companies in headset technology. It has an advanced two-microphone audio system that analyzes and reduces sound even as it captures your voice with clarity. As a result of this technology, the headset meets Microsoft Open Office requirements.

Inside the headset are professional-grade 28mm speakers. These work in conjunction with an advanced digital chipset to deliver the excellent audio quality many of us have come to expect from Jabra. That means the Jabra Evolve2 30 are ready for your next work call or for listening to music while you take a break from our 24/7 pandemic work schedule.

If your UC platform of choice is Microsoft Teams, the Teams-certified variant is perfectly adapted and optimized to give you the best experience with the platform.
  • COMFORT: Heavy on comfort. Light on the ears. To get ahead, we measured heads — hundreds of them. Then we used that data to design the perfect shape using biometric measurements.
