Rumors about the new Jabra Evolve2 (ANC) noise canceling business headphones have been around for a long time, but so far there have been no hints of release. Nevertheless, the latest news suggests that we do not have to wait long – probably three pairs of Jabra Evolve2 will appear immediately.
Jabra Evolve2 headphones: release date and price
According to rumors, the release of a new line of business headphones will take place at the end of May 2020 . Three models of Jabra Evolve2 are announced right away. One thing everyone wants to know about is the price, because upgrades to a pair of business-class headphones tend to raise the price a bit. Thus, while the first Elite 85hs are priced at a retail price of $ 499, the new Jabra Evolve2 85 will cost $ 730. The versions without noise reduction – Evolve2 65 and Evolve2 40 – for obvious reasons, are slightly cheaper, at a price of $ 437 and $ 203, respectively. You will find them in some stores and online markets in the coming weeks.

As announced by Jabra themselves, Evolve2 has the ability to connect three headphones, two of which are wireless, and the third is not.
The largest of the trios is the Evolve2 85, a business class compared to last year’s Jabra Elite 85h, offering a similar design combined with the unique Active Noise Canceling (ANC) approach that Jabra used in this model.
Jabra talks about improvements in battery life: up to 37 hours of battery life, which is an hour more than the Elite 85h, and more attention is paid to the microphone. While the microphones on the Elite 85h were built-in, Jabra offers on the Evolve2 85 a boom microphone with two microphones inside, as well as other 8 microphones in the headphone cases. The boom microphone can be pushed back whenever you want, which means that it can be used outside the office like a regular pair of headphones.
Evolve2 85 can connect to your phone via Bluetooth and communicate with your computer via USB. Unlike 65-inch ears, the Jabra supports USB Type C or larger USB Type A with a plug, depending on which version you want.
There are also two smaller versions in the Evolve2 40 and Evolve2 65, wired and wireless versions of the smaller Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones, but still with three microphones in design.
However, all three are designed to work with Unified Communications platforms, a term that enterprises can use for cloud-based voice services with support through Microsoft teams.
