Evolve2 85

Keep your eyes on the prize – this headset is designed to help you focus and stay on your game, whether you’re concentrating or collaborating. You’ve got this.

Hear yourself think.

We set out to create instant quiet, anywhere. The result is a world‐class professional headset with cutting‐edge digital hybrid Active Noise‐Cancellation (ANC), powered by our most advanced digital chipset ever and designed for incredible noise isolation; just put it on for instant immersion in your thoughts.

It’s time to change the game. Welcome to the new standard.

Don’t hide when you’re in your stride.

We’ve taken our busylight to a whole new level, making it visible from any direction. The red light is automatically activated when you’re on a call or in a meeting or you can activate it yourself at the touch of a button. So, even when you’re right in the middle of everything, your busylight will protect you from all angles, and all interruptions.

It’s like having a built‐in security guard for your concentration.

Bigger speakers. Better sound. Boom.

We’ve built this headset with powerful leak‐tolerant 40mm speakers. Factor in our advanced digital chipset and the latest AAC codec and your music will be sounding better than ever.

Good things come to those who wait. This is the audio experience you’ve been waiting for.

Our intelligent 10-microphone technology and new and improved digital signal processing algorithms deliver outstanding call performance in high-pressure and noisy office environments, allowing you to be heard and understood no matter where you are.

It’s your call…

We know that being heard and understood with absolute clarity keeps your calls seamless and professional. So, we took the incredible call performance of our world‐leading Evolve Series and we made it even better by building in 10 microphones (yes, 10), powered by that advanced digital chipset we keep talking about, for outstanding call quality, every time.

Because when you’re making an important call, clarity is everything.

UC-certified means UC-satisfied.

Satisfaction guaranteed isn't something you hear very often these days – but we're bringing it back.

Evolve2 85 is available in a Microsoft Teams-certified variant and a UC variant which is certified for Google Meet to ensure a seamless collaboration experience.

It’s also optimised for other leading UC platforms, so you can be confident that however you keep in touch with your team, this trusted device will keep the collaboration going all day.

Long week? We’ve got you covered.

When you finally find a headset that you just can’t do without, it’s good to know you don’t have to. We’ve used our advanced battery efficiency technology to squeeze every last minute of juice out of this powerful headset. The result is an industry‐leading 37‐hour battery life (powered by that mighty little chipset again).

And because we like to cover all bases, there’s always the handy charging stand – just in case.

Rest assured; Evolve2 85 will get you through the week.

  • Full charge - Get 37 hours battery life in 2.5 hours
  • Fast charge - Get 8 hours battery life in 15 minutes

Upgrade to business class.

We took biometric measurements of hundreds of heads to create a perfect design that adjusts to fit every size and shape. Then, we added soft memory foam ear cushions to make it supremely comfortable; so comfortable, you’ll forget it’s even there. Finally, we assembled it using durable, premium materials.

It’s comfort that’s in a class of its own.

Thinking outside the box.

As far as things in boxes go, this is kind of a big deal. Before you’ve even unboxed it, you’re holding a pioneering piece of tech that’s leagues ahead of any other headset. But because we have one eye on the future, firmware upgrades and value packs are already on the way to boost it even further.

If you think it’s great now, just wait…

Business. Casual.

Move seamlessly from the office to on‐the‐go, with a contemporary casual design and a discrete hidden boom‐arm that still guarantees exceptional professional sounding calls, even when tucked away.

So when you’re on the go, only you’ll know you’re working.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • How does Jabra Evolve2 differ from the Jabra Evolve Series?
    Jabra Evolve2 is a new range within the existing Evolve Series. We have re‐engineered the products in the new range in every single way. Evolve is the world's leading professional headset series — with Evolve2 we are setting the new standard.

  • Can I use Jabra Evolve2 85 with my smartphone and tablet?
    Yes. You can connect your headset to both your computer (with the supplied Jabra Link 380 Bluetooth adapter) and your smartphone or tablet at the same time.

  • Can I connect my headset using both USB‐A and USB‐C?
    Yes, depending on the model you choose. You can choose between a USB‐A or USB‐C Bluetooth adapter.

  • Can I stream music to this device?

    Yes. The first time you turn on your Jabra Evolve2 85, it is ready to pair with your mobile device.

  • Does it work with Mac and PC?
    Yes. It works with both systems.

  • Does it work with Microsoft Teams?
    Yes. Jabra Evolve2 85 comes in two variants – UC‐certified and Microsoft Teams‐certified. Recommendation is to pick the MS version, however, both variants would still work.

  • Does the headset come with the Bluetooth adapter?
    Yes. The headset is supplied with the Jabra Link 380 wireless adapter. Please choose either the USB-A or USB-C version.

  • What is the wireless range from my computer/mobile device?
    Whether you use the supplied Bluetooth adapter with your computer, or you are connected to a mobile device, you will get up to 30m wireless range whilst on a softphone call or listening to music.

  • How long does the battery last?
    With Evolve2 85 you will get up to 37 hours battery life.

  • How do I charge the headset?
    You can use the USB cable provided to connect to your computer power to recharge or use the optional add‐on charging stand.

  • Does the headset come with a charging stand?
    There is a handy optional charging stand, which is available as an add‐on accessory. Please select the model with charging stand.

  • Does it have a 3.5 mm jack?
    Yes. The 3.5 mm jack lets you connect to a personal device – like a smartphone or tablet – to work or listen to music.

  • What is the difference between UC models and models that are certified for Microsoft Teams?
    The Evolve2 models that are certified for Microsoft Teams support Microsoft Teams as a plug‐and‐play experience. The plug‐and‐play experience includes these benefits:

    Automatic selection as the default audio device.
    Call control through dedicated Teams button to:
    Invoke Teams app
    Open meetings’ "Join now" screen
    Answer and end incoming MS Teams calls
    Open missed calls and listen to MS Teams voicemails

    LED indication when connected to Teams/upcoming meeting/missed call etc or Voice Prompts when user is wearing the headset. When the Evolve2 85’s boom‐arm is pulled down, it also meets premium microphone for open office standards. This qualification is the strictest test requirement of how the headset microphone suppresses surrounding noise and office conversation. It is the ultimate reassurance that your headset will excel in an open office environment. If you use a model that is certified for Microsoft Teams with a different computer telephony (softphone) client, the product should work in a similar way to a UC model regarding audio and features (such as answer and end calls, adjust volume, mute). If you are not using Microsoft Teams as your UC client, we recommend choosing the standard UC variant, which is certified for all leading UC platforms like Cisco, Mitel, Avaya and more.
