Work from home has been the new normal. Taking work calls and meetings in the comfort of your home sounds like a very good idea, but one needs to make sure they have the right equipment and gadgets. There are multiple headphones out there, but not all of them are well suited for B2B purposes. Jabra has been known for its elaborate line-up B2B products. The Evolve2 85 is their top-of-the-line headphone made for people who do not want to miss out on any detail. However, is it the best B2B headphone available out there.?

Features of the Jabra Evolve2 85

The Jabra Evolve2 85 are premium headphones for a business person. The headphones come with multiple features that make them different from the other alternatives out there.

In the Box

Let’s start with what comes in the box. The headphones come with a lot of accessories. You get a solid travel case with the headphones in it. Along with the headphones, the case also comes with the 3.5 mm headphone jack cable, a USB dongle, an airline adapter and a USB-C cable. The box also comes with a wireless charging stand.

The Build

Premium headphones need to come with a good build. The Jabra Evolve2 85 folds face flat, which makes it less prone to breaking. It also comes with memory foam for comfort and adjustable earpieces. The mechanism is smooth and makes no sound. You have all the essential buttons on the headphone. The play-pause button, along with the volume rockers. The boom microphone is something to notice. When the boom mic comes on, the audio output becomes much better. The boom mic also comes with a mute button.

The earpieces are big and cover the whole of your ear. The cuffs are comfortable, and you will not experience any heating while working on them for longer hours. The headphones are also very comfortable and do not clamp to your head. They are also lightweight and do not feel heavy on extended usage. The thing to remember is that the headphones come with 37-hour battery life. So if you are on Zoom or Google Meets all day, it won’t feel heavy at the end of it.

Active Noise Cancellation

Active Noise Cancellation is a very important and underrated feature in headphones. The Jabra Evole2 85 comes with Active Noise Cancellation, making it easier for users to grasp all the details that are being shared over a call or in a meeting. On cranking up the volume to full volume, the sound does not hurt the ears and makes it possible to listen to even the slightest of sounds. The background noise is totally cut-off.

37-Hour Battery Backup

Battery life is very important when it comes to wireless headphones. The Jabra Evolve2 85 comes with a 37-hour battery backup, implying that you can attend endless calls and meetings without worrying about the battery running out. One of the best parts of the headphones is that they also come with wireless charging. It comes with a charging stand on which the headphones can be placed for charging. The headphones do not need to be connected to anything. It has magnetic pins that connect to the pins on the charging stand. It also supports fast charging via USB-C cable.


A microphone is one of the key aspects of a B2B headphone. The quality of the microphone, both build and sound, are important. The Jabra Evolve2 85 comes with 10 microphones with an addition of a boom microphone. The total of 11 microphones makes the audio output unmatched on many levels.

Connectivity Options

The headphones can be connected wirelessly to devices. However, that’s not it. Users can also connect the headphones with the help of a 3.5 mm jack cable. It comes in the box. This way, if you want up to no latency, you can experience that by changing the wireless headphones into wired ones. One thing to keep in mind is that if you want to game with these headphones, you might not have the best of experiences. If you are a casual gamer, then you can try it, but professional gamers should go for a gaming headset. It is, at the end of the day, a B2B headphone and not built for gaming.

Another good thing about these headphones is that you can connect multiple devices at once. You can have your phone and your laptop connected at the same time. You can pair up to 8 devices with the headphones. Also, if you are connected to multiple devices and get a call on your phone, it will automatically prioritize the call and disable all other devices for the duration of it. You also get a USB dongle to connect the headphones to your PC in the box.

The Jabra Evolve2 85 costs around INR 69K, this might sound like a lot for headphones, but keeping the features in mind. The price is not very high. It would have been more recommendable if it was priced lower, but that doesn’t mean that this does not justify the price.
