If you use headsets, or if you're someone who's responsible for buying them, then you probably know the Jabra name. Jabra headsets are used around the world, and the brand has a loyal following.
So how do these three headsets compare? Let's take a quick look.
Wireless range. All three models are rated up to 100 feet. This is pretty standard among Bluetooth headsets.
Battery life. The Evolve2 65, and 85 models offer uup to 37 hours of battery life, whereas the Evolve 75 gives you up to 18. No doubt the newer models are benefiting from advances in battery technology.
Weight. The Evolve2 65 weighs 6.2 ounces as does the Evolve 75. But, the Evolve2 85 hasn't been dieting lately because it tips the scales at 10 ounces. That's considered heavy by headset standards. Though advances in headset design does allow heavier headsets to feel lighter.
Busy light. All three have busy lights, but the 65, and 85 models have lights that can be seen from any viewing angle. That gives them an advantage of the 75.
Ear speakers. All three use 40mm ear speakers. This could mean they all sound pretty much the same, and they might. But, sound quality is subjective so when listening to all three you could find that you have a preference for one over the others.
Active Noise Cancellation. This is a relatively new business headset feature, and it's designed to give the headset wearer the ability to reduce ambient room noise. The Evolve2 65 doesn't have this feature, though the Evolve 75, and Evolve2 85 do. The Evolve2 75 is the first model up the line that offers it.
Bluetooth version. The Evolve 75 uses Bluetooth version 4.2, whereas the Evolve2 65 and 85 use version 5.0. 5.0 is designed to provide faster data transmission speeds, longer wireless range, and lower power consumption.
Microphone. The Evolve2 65 uses a 3 MEMS mic array that's noise canceling. The Evolve 75 uses a noise canceling uni-directional mic, and the Evolve2 85 uses a whopping 10 MEMS digital noise canceling mic array. And while on that particular mic, it can be swung upwards, and out of site where it stores away in the body of the ear speaker housing. When you pull it down, it unmutes.
Connectivity. All three connect to computers and mobile devices, and they all come with USB adapters (dongles), and allow for connecting up to 8 devices.
Color choice. The Evolve2 65, and the Evolve2 85 allow you to choose between black, and beigs where the Evolve 75 comes in one color only, black. So, if you want to express your individuality or non comformist tendencies, then the 65 or 85 could be a great choice.
