Many people either don't want to wear traditional headsets, or they can't. Some feel it makes them look like they're taking orders at the local drive through, while others tend to get migraine headaches from wearing anything over the head.
Whatever the reason, many want an alternative wearing style, and that's where earbud style headsets come in.
Using earbuds for business calls isn't the greatest of all headset choices because they're typically lacking in several ways when it comes to using them in business.
First, the sound quality on some earbuds aren't good enough to use on important calls. They also lack a battery that lasts long enough to get many people through a demanding work day, and then there's the common problem of not removing background noise. Who wants their callers hearing dogs barking, babies crying or coworkers celebrating? Not me.
So how do these new Jabra Evolve2 Earbuds show up to save the day? Let's find out.
First, these earbuds sound very good. Good enough to use on business calls? In my opinion, they do. As good as a typical boom microphone headset? Well, I'm not going that far, but as earbuds go, these are top notch.
The Evolve2 earbuds give you get 8 hours of talk time, and with the portable charger, that talk time extends to 33 hours. You can use both earbuds, or just the right or left. And, when one earbud is idle, it can get recharged, and later swapped out with the one in use, which gives you unlimited talk time.
Then there's the question that haunts all earbuds; background noise reduction. So how do these earbuds do to remove noise? The simple answer is not that great. We tested them against the sounds of office noise, dogs barking, babies crying, and of course our signature blender test. Basicallly, it didn't reduce any of it. But to be fair, Jabra never designed these earbuds to be noise killers. So, if these earbuds capture your interest, keep in mind the environment they'll be used in.
Active Noise Cancellation (or ANC for short), and HearThrough are both standard features on these earbuds. These features aren't commonly found on earbuds, so it's nice they're included.
ANC allows the earbud wearer to not be distracted by room noise because there's a button to help surpress it. You stay focused, not distracted, and more productive.
HearThrough eliminates the need to remove the earbuds anytime you want to have a face-to-face conversation with someone. No more removing, and returning the headset every time you're interrupted. Less hassle, and less frustration.
