Today, we are dedicating this space to the inspiring story of Søren Værnstrøm, who was thrown a curveball when he suffered a stroke from a blood clot. It left him paralyzed down his left side, with little chance of recovery.

Noise cancellation is very much the tech expression of today – at least in the audio world. Every headphone producer seems to be speaking about Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), which pleases us greatly at Jabra because we have a long history of engineering such sound solutions.
We started developing ANC two decades ago, and have today enhanced and improved this technology along with the digital signal processing (implemented via a two-microphone solution) now found in the Jabra Evolve 75.
