    Bought these headphones for work and am very pleased. They allow me to walk around while I talk to clients and have good reception distance within the office.

    Good quality headset for work

    I connected this headset to my work laptop initially via bluetooth, but found that sometimes it disconnects when not in use for sometime and hard to reconnect. It works seamlessly when connected via the included cable. Sound quality is good, the caller can hear me clearly and vice versa. While connected wirelessly, I walked away from my laptop but just a few feet away, the call quality got a little distorted. For this I deducted 1 star. However, overall I would recommend this headset specially for use at work using Skype. The quality is much better than the Plantronics headset I used to use.

    Top office headset

    I've been using a very good USB headset at the office as well as my own BT phones for listening from my phone, and then I had the opportunity of using the Jabra Evolve 65. This is one of the most versatile headsets for using with softphones as well as cell phones. The headset is light and comfortable to wear all day. Battery lasts all day. The design doesn't completely block ambient noise when there is no audio playing so I can hear is someone is coming by. The primary distinguishing feature for me is that it can simultaneously connect to a computer (Windows 7 to 10 or macOS) as well as a mobile phone, wirelessly. Keep in mind that it doesn't mix the audio from both the phone and the computer. It connects to both simultaneously but the sound is from whichever device is active last, not both simultaneously. After installing the optional 'Jabra Direct' software on Windows, connected the headset with the USB cable and it provided the option to upgrade the firmware on the headset. After it was all set, the software recognizes the softphone installed, (Cisco Jabber in this case), but it also supports Skype for Business and several web conferencing solutions. This is optional but provides controls from the headset like volume, hangup, call transfer, mute, etc. On MacOS, which I use elsewhere, the software is 'Jabra Suite' that works similar as in Windows, it installs a preference pane, a menu item icon and a firmware updater app. It also detects installed softphone software like Bria and Skype, also supports IBM SameTime, Avaya one-X and Equinox. The headset can connect via USB directly, keeping it charged and will also recognize it as an USB Audio device (No wireless required), or it can be connected with the Jabra 370 wireless USB adapter, that is Bluetooth but only for the headset, and the PC recognizes it as another USB audio device. At the same time it can be paired via Bluetooth with a mobile phone, Apple iOS in my case, and there is no app to install for these. The center button on one of the headsets can control calls on the mobile phone, and it also has volume controls, but it doesn't have music controls (prev/next). The headset can be worn with the mic on either right or left side and will recognize how it's worn. It will also go on mic mute if the mic is placed on the center of the headset, which also has a light magnet to keep it in place. Another nice feature is that one of the headsets will light up with a red circle if on a call, so co-workers know when not to interrupt. The light can also be turned on or off manually holding both volume controls. Audio for calls is excellent, and mic works well, as expected from business headsets. For music, audio is rich and clear, but without much bass. It doesn't provide the rich sound of enclosed headsets but then again this is not an enclosed headset. After a while got used to the different tone, and music sounds very nice. I can now keep the same headset for phone calls from PC or mobile, PC videos and music from the phone, without cables. The headset also comes with a pouch which also keeps the USB cable and a holder for the USB adapter.

    I do a lot of usability testing for work which requires to have a headset or microphone with a crisp quality of sound. This headset went above and beyond my expectations. Not only is it wireless and connected via Bluetooth, the setup is super easy and the headset has a high-quality fabric case that holds the dongle and the headset. The controls are all able to be adjusted via the headset itself and it requires no software or downloads of any kind! It completely plugs and plays which I find to be very hard to come by these days. Lastly, and most importantly, my clients and customers have even mentioned how crisp and high quality my voice is. I have had no issues with background noise as it is noise canceling. This is a definite buy if you are in need of a headset and want the personalization, quality and comfort that this provides.

    I got the Jabra Evolve 65 for office use (phone calls, online meetings, etc). The headset serves this purpose pretty well with the following features: Bluetooth connection - up to 100' pc or smartphone Busylight turns red when in use to avoid interruption Connect to pc & one other bluetooth device at the same time 10 hrs battery time, 2 hours charging time Noise cancelling microphone I used the headset thus far for phone calls, Facetime and on my pc with the Rosetta Stone program. I was very satisfied with all of these uses. Audio quality on my end and the feedback from the other caller was all very good. It is also convenient that the mic turns and tucks into the headset band when not in use for the times one is listening only. The headset is lightweight, portable and comes with a nice neoprene case. My one suggestion to Jabra would be to add some layer of padding to the headband arch. Perhaps it's just me getting used to the headset, but I felt it could have had a somewhat more comfortable feel as it rested on the top of my head.

    Superior quality for a reasonable price

    Whenever I see headphones with a mouthpiece, I always think of truckers or that odd guy at the grocery store that wants you to know he wearing a headset. We have all seen him. But the reality of this headset is that it has several applications and can work for the guy at the grocery store, the person at the office switching between devices and someone that just wants to do work on their home PC. It's a great device. First off, it's is much more durable than I thought it would be. They are small and sleek, but they are well made. I like how the microphone can be moved and magnetically connect to the head piece so it's out of the way when you just want to listen to something on the computer. The sound is awesome as well. The speakers really put out some clean crisp sound with no distortion to note. They connect well via Bluetooth and they include a USB adapter to put in your computer for those that don't have Bluetooth capabilities. You can actually switch between multiple devices when you are using it, not like standard headphones that can only be on one connection at a time. They also say that have a 100 foot range for the Bluetooth connect. I have not tested that, but I have walked upstairs in my house and the connection stayed while I was doing that. I neglected to mention the Evolve 65 has noose cancellation. And since they sit on the ear and don't cup it like some headphone do, you can still hear important things around you, just at a reduced level. It works really well by the way, just like some of the high end brands such as Bose or the like. Personally, I didn't expect it to work as well as it did. I was happily surprised. One complaint I read is that it doesn't have a 3.5 mm connection. Well, if you are buying a Bluetooth product, in this day and age you have to expect that don't you? If you want that sort of device, you should get the Jabra Evolve 40 vice the 65. It's comes with that connection and appears to be identical as far as features go. All and all, this is an outstanding product and it comes with everything you need including a case to carry it in. I'd say it's great for extended wear, as it doesn't cause a lot of pressure anywhere and the pads on the ears are soft and conforming. I'd recommend this to anyone that routinely wears such a device for work, or the person that just wants to talk to family and friends with greater ease. The price is reasonable for what you get. I'm very happy with it.

    The Jabra - Evolve Bluetooth headset is the perfect headset for me. I participate in meetings everyday for work and having this quality headset makes my job much easier. The bluetooth syncs up beautifully. Very easy to pair with my devices. The most amazing feature is, I can use two devices at one time and choose my connection preference on demand. Call clarity is perfect. I can hear people clearly even when I walk away from my laptop. The battery life is great too. I can use the headset all day on a single charge. I typically spends 3-5 hrs on calls. I like that I can move the speaker out of the way when I'm not using it. I would recommend this headset. It's awesome.

    Fantastic Headset for the Office

    I'm a picky person when it comes to headsets and audio. I've been trying to use a gaming headset at work, however I need to have the microphone on the right side, which my gaming headset can't support. Enter the Jabra Evolve 65, where the mic can rotate to be on either side! I've used this headset for over two weeks now and have only good things to say. From Skype for Business, to WebEx and Google Play Music, this headset does exactly what I need it to do. The form factor of "on the ear" isn't my cup of tea as I'd rather an "over the ear" configuration, however that doesn't detract from how good this headset it. A red light will show up when engaged on a call, whether or not YOUR coworkers will see that and leave you be, only you'll know -- however my coworkers ignore it every time. If they end up seeing the light and leaving you alone . you can also manually trigger the busy light, which could give you some serious concentration time. Quick volume adjustment and the ability to mute from the headset are a must and this headset has those features. I also started using this headset for streaming tunes and the audio is pretty good. I feel you lose music 'feel' with on-the-ear headphones, but the sound is good (given the intended purpose for these headphones). Not much for bass, but it'sn't tinny at all - so, I'm somewhat impressed. If you're looking for a solid headset for calls in the office, all while able to comfortably listen to music, get this one.

    Amazing headset for meetings

    Background - I use these headphones for my daily, work from home, videoconferencing meetings. Out of the box, the headset is quick and easy to pair. Insert USB dongle, flip power on, and hold button to pair. I didn't read the directions, so there may be a better process, but this one worked efficiently. So far, I have used and abused this headset for a week with zero issues. I find it comfortable to wear for a long time (4 - 6 hours straight) while attending meetings. The volume controls are intuitive and easy to select the desired action. I had approximately 6 hours of talk time out of the first charge and now I'm higher than that, but don't have an exact number because my meetings are every few hours and I leave the power on in between. Lastly, and the reason for 5 stars, is the background noise cancellation. I work in a screened in porch / sunroom, and recently found myself in a meeting during a heavy (loud) rainstorm. I asked the other party if he could hear me ok or if I needed to move. He advised he couldn't hear any background noise. I was impressed, also the mic doesn't pick up the Darth Vader, heavy breathing effect. Overall a great set of headphones for work. If you are looking at them due to status indicator, be aware that it doesn't work automatically with some video conferencing tools, however if it doesn't, you can hold down the button to manually change it to a red light. This is a huge help to keep down conversations while I'm in a meeting.

    Great For Home-Office Use & Entertainment

    Was anxious to receive this complimentary Jabra 65 Wireless Headset for my home/office setup because it was promoted and designed so I could comfortably use this headset all day long. And, after over two weeks of constant use I wholeheartedly agree. This headset only weighs 3.84 oz, and has comfortable ear pieces with ultra-soft foam centers. Of course, they are adjustable and come with a handy zippered, carrying pouch, which is great for me to take on the 'road'. The carrying pouch includes a Jabra USB Cable, Jabra Link 370 USB Dongler, and Quick Start Guide. I went on-line to Jabra's website and downloaded the support manual for even more detail. Features I Love About The Jabra Evolve 65: * Impressive Sound Quality - For music it is designed for the mid-ranges, and delivers crystal clear, crisp voice sound. However, it does not have any adjustable user, Equalizer, settings. @@@@@ Lightweight and Comfortable - For over two weeks I have worn these daily for 6 to 8 hours. They are on-ear headphones as compared to over-ear. They are not noise-canceling. @@@@@ Easy Operable Controls - Simple controls, very intuitive, and easy to learn. ON/OFF; Bluetooth Paining, Volume UP/DOWN ; Multi-Function button; Additionally, some information is voice enabled announcing the various status of your headphones. There are also LED lights to indicate, ON/OFF, Bluetooth Pairing, and Battery Charging. @@@@@ Versatile Drop-Down Mic - This mic delivers crisp, clear voice sound. When not in use you can flip it up to be held by a magnet in the headband. It also can be set-up for use on the Left ear by rotating the mic accordingly, which allows 270 degrees of rotation. The mic arm is flexible and can be shaped to your preferences. When using the mic you cannot hear your own voice through the headphones. @@@@@ Siri and/or Google Assistant Compatible - I love the ability to use Siri to make calls for me (you can use Google Assistant), completely hands-free. WooHoo! @@@@@ Provides Great Musical Entertainment - While working in my home/office I love to stream music from Pandora through Bluetooth. This stereo headphone set does just that, It is built for passive noise cancellation, which is good when you have a home/office or office environment,so, you can still be aware of anything that may need your attention. @@@@@ Dual-Connectivity - I can connect my desktop using the Jabra 370 USB Dongle, or direct connection to my desktop and/or laptop using the supplied USB cable. And, also my cell phone through Bluetooth, both at the same time. @@@@@ Wireless Range - Nearly a 100 Foot of hands-free connectivity to PC, smartphone and/or tablet. I can leave my home office and go for a snack or beverage at the other end of my house, in the kitchen. YooHoo! @@@@@ On-Line Phone Services - I use Skype, Google Hangouts, and Chromebox. The sound quality on all services is crystal clear and sharp - works great with all of them. @@@@@ Battery Charge - Although the specs state you can get 10 hours of battery life, I constantly stream music and make and receive numerous calls. I estimate around eight hours is what I get on a full charge. Charging the headphones takes approximately two hours. But, I use my I-Phone, 120V charger, and it is a lot quicker. @@@@@ Jabra Direct Software - Allows firmware updates, and additional software control features. @@@@@ Phone Calls - I enable Siri on my SE I-Phone for making calls. The quality of voice sound sending or receiving phone conversations is outstanding. The mic arm, which is flexible, can be adjusted to be very near your mouth. This feature makes a great difference to me over all other headsets, I have ever tried. Features I Wish It Had: * Auxiliary 3.5mm Jack - It would be nice to connect this Jabra 65 to my Surround Sound Receiver. I could then play my oldie-goldie record collection and take advantage of the equalizer settings to enhance the sound of these headphones. Just a wish. @@@@@ Washable Ear Cups - No mention of any kind of cleaning process and/or sanitation procedures by Jabra. I highly recommend these Jabra Evolve 65 headsets If you work in an office environment, or home/office setting like I do - these are the headphones for you. If you just want headphones for entertainment only, look elsewhere. Even if you don't work in an office kind of venue, but make and receive dozens of phone calls - this is the headphone set you need. I introduced my neighbor, who is in medical equipment sales and makes numerous calls a day, to these Jabra Evolve 65 Headphones, and she recently bought a set at Best Buy. They are inexpensive and you won't be disappointed.

    Good clarity headphones

    I recently received this unit and my initial impressions that this is a light but comfortable headset. The headband is made of plastic but a metal band also reinforces it. The headphones are not over-the-ear but rather on-ear meaning the cups press on to your ears rather than cover around your ears. For some there is a presence for the former but in this case, the cups press softly as the cushions are quite comfortable to the ear. Overall, the headphones seem well built but only time will tell if they will be able to handle day-to-day use. The headphones come with a neoprene case, which is a nice addition not found in most headphones. Also, there is a usb dongle included for use with computers without Bluetooth capabilities and also the charging cable can also be used to connect to the headphones and at the same time charge it while in use. Further, the cable included can be used with any usb plug to charge the headphones. Pairing the headphones is a breeze in devices with built-in usb. And if the dongle is used, it is automatically paired to the headphones. I cannot ascertain if the device's Bluetooth range is really 100 feet as there are numerous walls in my and connections get dropped from time-to-time. But direct range from the device seems to provide a solid connection. I have tested the headphone on iOS devices and on a Windows 10 machine both via Bluetooth and cable. I have done a Face Time call and call quality is impressive. Voice clarity is excellent both in outgoing and incoming parties. I also experimented with Skype on Windows to a Chromebook and I also got the same call quality. Furthermore, I tested this headphone for music and though the clarity is there, bass seems to be lacking. But then again this is not designed really for music. Still the sound is decent enough for use while working in the office. So far, my wish list includes that the headphones should have manual volume and mute controls, a 3.5mm jack and better documentation. These are what prevents me from giving this five stars. But still I would highly recommend this as the main function of this gadget is above expectations.
