New headset series delivers an unmatched solution for businesses of all sizes, enabling greater concentration and focus in the open office
Las Vegas – HR Technology Conference and Exposition – Oct. 7, 2014 – Jabra, a leading manufacturer of innovative audio solutions, today announced its newest product series, Jabra Evolve. Jabra Evolve is the industry’s first series of professional headsets that support the communication needs of knowledge workers, where 69 percent state that disturbances in the open office have a negative impact on their performance. Through advanced noise-cancellation technologies, Jabra Evolve aims to enhance productivity by offering a personal “concentration zone.”
The series consists of five headsets all purpose-built for shutting out the hustle and bustle of the open office, including features that signal when the user doesn’t want to be disturbed. Jabra Evolve is the headset series employees will love to use yet will still address employers’ concerns around user productivity and adoption. The Jabra Evolve furthers this effort with a microphone boom arm discreetly integrating into the headband. Each model in the Jabra Evolve series is designed to meet style demands of a mainstream audience while continuing to reinforce employers’ ability to promote workplace productivity through personal device connectivity and a music-grade audio experience.
“The Jabra Evolve headsets create a complete personal concentration zone that boosts focus and work satisfaction for employees in increasingly open, loud and distracting workspaces,” said Holger Reisinger, Jabra senior vice president of marketing, products and alliances. “We have designed the Jabra Evolve series with both the employer and user in mind, delivering a vital solution to improve return on investment through increased workplace productivity and accelerated user adoption.”
The Jabra Evolve series offer an assortment of features and benefits through its five models – 20, 30, 40, 65 and 80. This variety enables employers and workers alike to more effectively address a broad range of collaboration and concentration needs in the open office or virtual office – at home or ‘on the go’. Key features include:
- Industry leading Noise Cancellation: The series introduces large ear cushions with specially designed foam adapting the padding to the individual, blocking office noise. Furthermore, the flagship product Jabra Evolve 80 offers additional noise cancellation with an around the ear wearing style and is the industry’s first professional headset offering active noise cancellation to give a full concentration zone experience.
