Let's dive deeper into our initial worries about the hero headset. 


Why We Were Worried at Telrex

At Telrex, we approached the Jabra Evolve2 65 Flex with a mix of excitement and scepticism. We had encountered past issues with lightweight headsets that compromised quality and durability.

The idea of a portable professional headset with exceptional performance seemed almost too good to be true. However, we were willing to put our biases aside and give the Evolve 2 65 Flex a fair chance.

One of our primary concerns was the headset's lightweight construction. 

In the past, we had experienced flimsy headsets that felt cheap and fragile. We were worried that the Evolve 2 65 Flex might follow the same path. Additionally, we had reservations about its Bluetooth connectivity, battery life, comfort, and microphone quality. These were common pain points we had encountered with similar products before.

However, despite our reservations, we were determined to approach the testing process with an open mind. We knew that true assessment required thorough evaluation. We wanted to provide an unbiased review that would help our readers make informed decisions about their headset choices.

Initial Impressions: Overcoming Biases and Surprises

As we embarked on our testing journey with the Jabra Evolve2 65 Flex, we were fully aware of our biases and concerns. 

However, we were pleasantly surprised by our initial impressions. Check out this video to see just what we're talking about! Jabra Evolve 2 65 Flex Test

But before we delve into our experience, let's first outline how we conducted the testing process to ensure a comprehensive evaluation. Because it’s not only important on knowing how to choose a business headset, but how to test them! 

How to Test Headsets Properly

To provide an accurate and well-rounded review, we established a robust testing protocol for the Jabra Evolve2 65 Flex. Don't just use frequency tests like this, make sure to use them. Here's how we approached the evaluation:

  1. Extended Wear: We wore the headset for several days, allowing us to assess its comfort, weight distribution, and any potential discomfort during prolonged use.


  1. Cross-Device Compatibility: We tested the headset across different devices, including laptops, smartphones, and tablets. This helped us gauge its versatility and performance across various platforms.


  1. Diverse Environments: We evaluated the headset's performance in different spaces, both loud and quiet. This allowed us to assess its ability to block out background noise and provide a focused audio experience. Examples:


            Loud Environments: We tested the headset in bustling coffee shops, busy open offices, and other noisy settings to gauge its noise-cancellation capabilities.

           Quiet Environments: We also tested the headset in quiet spaces, such as home offices or libraries, to evaluate its audio quality in pristine conditions.


  1. Travel Testing: We took the headset on the road, using it during various modes of transportation like:
    • Airplanes
    • Trains
    • Buses
    • and even rideshares. 

This helped us assess its performance in transit and on-the-go scenarios.


  1. Video Conferencing and Phone Calls: We tested the Evolve 2 65 Flex on popular video conferencing platforms like Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and others, as well as regular phone calls. This allowed us to evaluate its microphone quality, audio clarity, and overall performance in communication scenarios.


With this comprehensive testing approach, we gathered feedback from different staff members representing various divisions within our organisation. 

Their insights and experiences helped shape our overall evaluation of the Jabra Evolve2 65 Flex.

One of our significant concerns was the quality of the microphone. 

However, the Jabra Evolve2 65 Flex surprised us with its exceptional microphone performance. Whether we were in a loud coffee shop or a bustling open office, the ClearVoice microphones effectively isolated our voice from the surrounding noise. The Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation proved to be far superior to what we had assumed, allowing us to communicate with clarity and precision in various environments.

How does the Jabra Evolve2 65 Flex does in airplan

By: on 3 November 2023
Hello, How does the Jabra Evolve 2 65 flex do on an airplane with its noise cancelling watching movie or listening to music?

Telrex Response
Hi Peisia, On an airplane the jabra evolve2 65 flex is quite a good option. While it doesn’t have ANC, the passive noise isolation can still help to some extent in reducing cabin noise. However, it might not be as effective as headphones specifically designed with ANC. Although they are a great option if you're tight on space in your bag or want a lightweight headset. If you want more of an effective option, I would suggest the Evolve2 85 or over-ear headphone style. These will be perfect for noise cancellation and watching movies or music; feel free to contact our experts for any other queries you may have.
