Looking for a headset for office or home use?
Despite employees returning to the office, many continue efficient habits they had picked up during the recent pandemic. Zoom and Microsoft Teams have
become the norm in today’s workplace. Instead of having meetings physically,
meetings are often conducted online.
The benefit of doing so would be efficiency and productivity. With hybrid work
arrangements, online meetings are the norm these days. Therefore, it is unsurprising that headsets are still in high demand.
Since headsets will be the primary driver of business engagement, getting a decent set for use makes sense. It is not uncommon to see people
wearing headsets while on commute. However, using these headsets for meetings
may mean compromising on quality and function as they are not suitable for
long hours of calls. On the flip set, getting 2 separate headsets would mean
Jabra Evolve2 65
|What’s in the box|
If your main objective is getting a headset for commuting and work, Jabra
Evolve2 65 fits the bill perfectly.
|Jabra Evolve2 65 Flex: It’s what’s inside that counts|
Our first impression is that this set is compact. The package is half
the size of most headsets in the market. We were happy to know
that it comes with a velvety pouch specially designed to fit this
Headset. This velvety pouch has a smooth inner lining to limit potential
damage, and the durable outer fabric offers excellent resistance against
|Unique Fold and Go Design|
The unique fold-and-go design makes the footprint of the Jabra Evolve2
65 more petite than usual. As a result, it effortlessly folds into a small package that you can
fit into a handbag, a feat that is probably unachievable with 99% of the
existing headsets. In addition, the blend of functionality and thoughtful design elevates
the audio experience to a different level.
The Evolve2 65 Flex boasts a sleek and streamlined design, setting it apart
from bulkier gamer headsets in size. In addition, its refined aesthetics make it
an excellent choice for individuals of all genders. Moreover, donning this
Headset in professional settings such as the office would exude a more
polished and sophisticated appearance, complementing your overall attire.
|Jabra Air Comfort|
Unlike conventional headsets, the Jabra Evolve2 65 feature ear pads that
gently press against the ears, providing a pleasant and secure fit. At a
measly 136 g, the lightweight construction guarantees they stay firmly in
place, even with regular use. In fact, it is so light that I hardly feel its
presence when I have the Headset on for the day.

Buttons to control the headset line up on both sides of the Headset. On the
left are the ANC button to cycle between ANC and Hear through. The ANC works
well to dampen noise around you, so you can fully concentrate if you are in a busy cafe listening to a
call. I tested it indoors, and the moment
it is turned on, the sound from the air-conditioning unit dissipates. However, the buttons can be hard to detect for those with big hands.
It also features a power-on button that doubles as a Bluetooth pairing
assistant. The left earcup has a wireless charging zone to
charge your Headset wirelessly.
|Made for Microsoft Teams|
On the right are buttons to control the volume, pause/play music and mute
the microphone. The button on the correct answer or end calls can be used for
Microsoft Teams control.
|Jabra Link 380 USB Adapter|
It also comes with a Jabra Link 380 USB Adapter for dual connectivity. This
means you can use this to connect to your laptop and your phone
via Bluetooth. This allows you to smoothly transit from the office to
commute freely. Of course, you could also link the Headset to the laptop without the
adapter, but it will limit connectivity and the plug-and-play functions for
|Perfect for meetings|
The Headset is also certified for leading virtual meeting platforms like
Google Meet, Zoom, and Microsoft Teams. With 20 hours of
battery life, this Headset can last a week’s meeting calls.
|Compact boom arm microphone|
What impressed us it the compact boom arm microphone that stealthfully hides
away when not in use. With the microphone tucked in, it would look exactly
like a standard headset. This makes it perfect for use in commute. The Headset
also comes with voice-isolating Jabra ClearVoice microphone technology, which
means your voice will be crystal clear when doing an online presentation.
|Great for Work|
Your colleagues will also know when you are on a call as it comes with an
integrated Busylight that can be viewed from all angles that come on in red
during the call.
|Red means on call|
The Jabra Evolve2 65 Flex is more than just a headset for work; it also
provides relaxing music and entertaining listening. With ANC, it
delivers a solid bass that blends well with vocals. Watching a movie with it
gave an immersive sound experience that could give movie theatres a run for
their money. Using Jabra for music playback can last up to 32 hours
with ANC off and 21 hours with ANC on!
|Jabra Evolve2 65 can be used for entertainment.|
The Jabra Evolve2, 65 flex straight out of the box, would suffice for
most. However, to uncover the full potential, the
Jabra Sound+ App must be use. With the App, the first thing it does will be setting the
Headset to your hearing experience.
You can also customise the Headset via the App, such as adjusting heart
through and ANC level, auto-answer calls and sleep mode settings. There is
also a find my Jabra that locates your Headset.
With its combination of style and versatility, the Evolve2 65 Flex
effortlessly bridges the gap between fashion and functionality, ensuring a
seamless transition from work to play. It would have been excellent, except
that it cost $518. At that price point, making it a mass-market product
would take a lot of work. It will be a worthwhile investment for those who can
take the plunge.
