    Well worth it!

    I work from home and bought this headset to use with my laptop and iPhone, and wanted something decent as I wear it for most of the day. I've found the Jabra Evolve really comfortable and the sound quality on calls is excellent - clients have remarked how much clearer I sound. Would highly recommend!

    Jabra evolve 65 ms stereo headset - review

    I've waited a few weeks since I received the headset before writing this review to get a feel for how it performed day in day out. I work from home and use the headset a few hours every day. I've never really been the biggest fan of Jabra - had one of their headsets years ago and it broke soon after it was purchased. But I've been using Plantronics for a while and felt like a change and this was recommended to me by ligo - I asked the girl in customer services what she was using and it turned it she was testing the Evolve 65. I have to say that the noise-cancelling on this is far better than my last headset - nobody can hear when my kids are screaming from the other room and I can keep the radio on whilst I'm on a call without it being intrusive. I also find the headset extremely comfortable to wear and the wireless range is good for Bluetooth. I've used it a few times with my Samsung and sound quality on calls is excellent, slightly less so when listening to music but I have another set of headphones for that and I suppose it would be fine if you have nothing else. Overall I've been really impressed with the headset and can recommend for anyone who needs something that will work in a noisy environment and uses a headset regularly. Top marks!

    Excellent

    This is a great quality headset and much better than others I've tried.
    The lightweight design and being able to fold away the microphone when I don't have any calls is handy. Great sound quality and the microphone doesn't pick up external noise

    Excellent sound quality and very comfortable to wear for long periods (I only use this as a work tool so sound quality is great for that). Far superior to the cheaper stereo headphones I was using before. Customer have also commented that I sound much clearer since I started using this headset!

    Comfortable, great sound & noise-cancelling

    I've been using this Jabra Evolve for a couple of months now and very impressed. It spends most of the day paired with my iPhone and a laptop (using the included dongle). The headset is extremely comfortable to wear, which was important for me as I wear it for most of the day. It has a nice weight and isn't too tight. The stereo earpiece provides the great noise isolation, which means I can block out a lot of the background office noise but still hear enough of my own voice when I'm talking. The included dongle is plug-and-play, which saves an awful lot of faffing about with bluetooth pairing (which can be hit-and-miss under Windows, in my experience). Just plug the dongle in and tell the SIP client to use the audio device that appears. I run a generic SIP client (Zoiper) on the PC. Using this headset, I can easily make/answer calls from either phone. The battery life is also very good. When it does run out, you can charge it with the (included) USB cable and still use the headset normally. For use just as Bluetooth headphones (e.g. just for listening to music), the microphone can be integrated into the headband magnetically. In truth, one of the few faults I can find is that the magnetic mechanism isn't strong enough so doesn't hold onto the microphone all that well. Its a fairly minor complaint.

    All in all, I'm very satisfied and would recommend.

    Pros:
    + Sound quality
    + Noise-cancelling
    + Can wear it all day comfortably

    Cons:
    - Magnet to attach mic to headband isn't always strong enough to hold it in place
    - A little on the expensive side

    Not great

    Having had a couple of cheaper wireless headsets that broke or gave up the ghost I thought I'd spend a bit more on a headset for my laptop. Mistake. It's nicely presented and looks like a superior product BUT:
    Software is terrible.
    It cuts out when you change volume
    You can's recharge it while the wireless dongle is in the usb slot - Either wireless or USB not smart enough for both (although there may be an arcane sequence of plugging and unplugging dongle and usb that works I've yet to figure it out)
    Microphone is terrible
    Headband doesn't expand enough to give a comfortable microphone position.
    Unclear whether you are muted or unmuted. A quiet voice says whether you are muting or unmuting when you do this - but this doesn't always work and is drowned out in a noisy conference call anyway)
    Documentation is poor.

    5 stars

    Set-up was a breeze - just a case of plugging in the Bluetooth dongle and turning on the headset. I bought for use at work and I've had no problems at all. Far superior to the wired one I it replaced with the added benefit of being able to get up and move around. As it's only Bluetooth the range isn't that far but I can comfortably move around the office without dropping a call and no longer have wires falling over my keyboard and getting tangled.
    The sound quality is excellent and I like that the mic can be kept out the way by clicking it into the headband. The magnetic dock isn't that strong so it sometimes clicks back out but this isn't an issue.
    Excellent headset - would recommend!

    Highly recommend

    I use these for work every day and they're in continuous use for about 8 hrs. Great sound quality, comfortable to wear, I highly recommend them.

    Great headset if a bit expensive

    Connection was very simple, just a case of plugging the USB adapter into my PC and switching the headset on. I use it for Skype and so far I haven't run into any problems. I much prefer it to my old wired headset since there's no cable to get in the way of the keyboard!

    I also like how the microphone can be flipped up out of the way if you're not using it. It holds in place using a little magnet inside the headband.

    My only issue has been that it completely blocks out any outside noise, so when I'm using it its hard to tell how loud I'm speaking.

    Sound is great and no complaints from anyone I've spoken to while using the headset. Would definitely recommend.

    Great for the office

    This headset is almost perfect- the only downside is that there's no active noise cancellation for the user, only for the person on the other end of the call- but I understand there's a more expensive Jabra headset which does this. Range and sound quality are both outstanding when using the dongle- i'm in an open plan office with dozens of other headset users all on the same frequency, and the Evolve still works perfectly. I also love how you can connect to a computer and mobile simultaneously and switch between them right away. Definitely worth the price tag here.
