Working in a office with several employees can be a difficult task. The constant office chatter makes it difficult when you’re on the phone. Fortunately there are plenty of headphones that will help filter out majority of the background noise. I’m almost certain that majority of people have heard the phrase “noise canceling.” Generally speaking, that is referring to the microphones ability to filter out noise for the user on the other end of the phone. Below you will find a small list of headsets are great at filtering out that background noise. As a bonus I will include a couple of headphones that filter out noise through the microphone and the noise through the earphones! Some of the headsets will have passive/active noise canceling earphones.
Let us start with the noise canceling microphone only category. Note, all of these headsets come with a superb noise canceling microphone. All corded headsets require a bottom cable or an amplifier to work with your device.
Like I said above, this has an excellent noise canceling microphone. But in addition, you have high def audio, plush leatherette ear cushions, and very sturdy construction. This CORDED binaural (covers both ears) headphone has a little passive noise canceling (think of resting earphones over your ears without any sound playing). The microphone is a bit unique, it sits just below the base of the earphone to avoid any possible interference with your peripheral vision. You can also extend the microphone to the perfect distance to your mouth. With all of that said, if you’re in a very loud environment that has close quarters or no partitions, you’ll probably want to opt for something with active noise canceling. Great headphone for mild office chatter. Requires a bottom cable or amplifier, comes with a manufacturers 2 year warranty. Click here to buy now.
This is the newest wireless headphone on the market. Similar to the above, if you’re in a mild to moderately noisy environment, this dual eared wireless headset will be an awesome choice. This monster comes out of the box with a massive 490ft wireless range, 13 hours of talk time, and advanced noise canceling microphone. The awesome part of this headphone is, you can even plug it into your computer at the same time as your desk phone, allowing you to switch between calls on your landline and soft phone applications. This headphone is certified for Microsoft Skype for Business so chat away, or just enjoy some YouTube or stream some Spotify. It runs on DECT technology like many other wireless headphones, but this uses DECT Security Step C & using FIPS approved algorithms for key generation, payload encryption and authentication. It is the most secure headset on the market. Like I said this headphone is among the line of the newest and best technology by Jabra. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy.
The newest technology got even better. This binaural wireless headset boasts all the same features of the Engage 65 plus more. You will still have the incredible range, talk time, and advanced noise canceling microphone, etc. The key differences between this headset and the Engage 65 is the ability to connect to even more devices and a touch screen base. The Engage 75 can connect 5 devices at the same time. Yes you read that right. 5 devices. You can connect 2 USB, 2 Bluetooth, and 1 desk phone. Now, I don’t know why you would need to connect this many devices, but I guess it’s good to know that you can. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy.

So to sum this unit up, extremely powerful, comfortable, and unique. Comes with a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty. Click here to buy now.
This is a new edition to the Blackwire series. What makes this headset unique is that it has active noise canceling but it’s a corded USB headset. You don’t really find that anywhere else. The active noise canceling (ANC) is a great feature to have if you’re in a loud office. In addition to the noise canceling earphones, it has nice noise canceling boomless microphones.

The Engage 65 mono would be my goto headset. I say goto because I’m currently using a the Engage 65 Stereo. My office is not loud enough to warrant the dual earphones, but it is nice to listen to music in stereo. The Engage 65 mono is a monster. You have 13 hours talk time, 490ft wireless range, and a fantastic noise canceling microphone. This headset is the replacement for the Pro 9450. You can connect it to 2 devices, deskphone and computer. If you’re in a large office, you don’t have to worry about interference. You can have up to 120 of these headsets without fear of interference. This is the most secure wireless headset on the market. It uses Patented pairing. 256-bit AES encryption. 128-bit authentification. DECT Security Level C. The Engage 65 is also very comfortable and light 57g. Another useful feature is the built in busy light. Co-workers/customers no longer have to guess whether or not you’re on the phone. You wear it as a headband and it covers 1 ear. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy now.
This wireless headset is very similar to the Mono but has some slight differences. The good: You can purchase additional wearing styles for this headset. It comes with an earhook, (headband and neckband sold separately.) It is much lighter. The bad: talk time is decreased to 9 hours, the wireless range drops to around 330ft, and the battery is NOT replaceable. When your battery eventually dies, you will have to purchase a new headset. Still a great headset. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy now.
Virtually the same as the 65 Mono, weighs a little more 83g, stereo (2 earphones). With this you will get up to 490ft or roaming range, and 13 hours of talk time. The touch screen base is also a cool feature. You can control or adjust setting right on the base! The real benefit with this headset is the passive noise canceling that is provided by the dual ears. Like I said earlier, this is the headset that I use, and I love it. Sometimes it gets hot in the office, so I would prefer a single ear. At times when everyone is screaming on the phone, I’m glad I have stereo. The stereo headphones are superb for listening to music (listening to Jimi Hendrix right now). Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy now.
This headset is the absolute top of the line. Like the Engage 65, you have the exemplary 490ft range and 13 hours of talk time. This headset comes with head band, neck band, and you can connect it to 5 devices at one time. You read that correctly, connect this headset with 1 desk phone, 2 USB devices, and 2 Bluetooth devices. I can’t imagine many people needing to connect to that many devices simultaneously, but more is better than less. It also has a convenient touch screen base. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy now.
The headset has the same connectivity as the above 2 USB devices, 2 Bluetooth device and 1 desk phone. Unlike the Engage 65 convertible, this headset includes all three wearing styles (headband, ear hoods, neck band). Again the downside to this headset is the loss of wireless range, and decreased talk time. You still have 9 hours of talk time and 330ft of range, which is about the industry standard. Like the 65 Convertible this headset does not have an exchangeable battery. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy now.
Includes all of the same features as the Engage 75 Mono but comes with 2 earphones. Rock out with this bomb stereo headset up to 490ft. Are you worried about how long you talk straight with this headset? Don’t be. You have an incredible 13 hours of talk time. This headset is better if you’re in a slightly louder environment. More often than not, my coworkers are talking very loud. We are within close proximity to one another, having stereo helps drown out the noise. Don’t fret about the headset being uncomfortable or cumbersome. I wear the Engage 65 stereo for 8-9 hours straight no problem. Do yourself a solid and just buy this headset. It is far better than anything on the market. I prefer the Engage series way over Plantronics. Comes with a manufacturer’s 1 year warranty. Click here to buy now.
All of these headsets are truly remarkable. If you choose any of the above, I guarantee you will love them. All of the Engage series are remote answer capable. Remote answering will enable you to answer and end phone calls away from your desk. You can be down the hall or in another room and still be able to answer your calls.

From what I hear, truck cabins are pretty loud. This headset has IP54 rating for water and dust protection. It has NFC pairing which makes pairing super duper easy. It has class one Bluetooth, which we learned has 300 feet of wireless range. You must connect it to another device that is class 1.

As you have noticed , Jabra had been adding new UC headsets to the market, and it can become a little overwhelming trying to find a headset that can work with your smartphone and your computer. Personally, I do use and need something reliable and easy to sync thru all my devices and get the best sound quality with no performance sacrifice.
With so many options today you might ask the same… What’s the main difference between the Jabra Evolve 65 and the Jabra Evolve 75, besides the name? Both of these headsets are going to be Bluetooth, so you can easily use with any Bluetooth enable device such as Smartphones, iPhone, Tablets, Laptops and some desktops as well. I will analyze both of them and will explain you in deep the main differences, and will let you know my favorite choice.
The Jabra Evolve 65 is a nice quality wireless headset from Jabra, designed to be used with Smartphones , tablets , laptops and desktops via Bluetooth, all this thanks to the Jabra Link 360 adapter included with it. It is always recommended to use the Bluetooth dongle in order to get the best range when you want to use your Evolve headsets with your laptop or desktop.
Easy to use and set up , just as Plug-and-Play makes it so easy to be used by any one even with no tech skills. This headset gives you a range of up to 100ft, and gives you a nice 10 hour talk time when fully charged. You have a couple of options here available, the nice Evolve 65 Mono, that will be covering just one ear, the Evolve 65 Stereo that will be covering both ears and Evolve 65 Stereo with Stand , that allows you to leave the headset and charge it on its nice and well finished stand/docking station. My favorite in this family will be the 65 Stereo with Stand.
The Evolve 65 comes with a nice noise canceling microphone , with a boom arm that can be stored in the headset when used for just listening music or watching a video. Built-in busy-light let you know when you are in a call or when you are using your headset. As additional feature, you can turn on the Busy-light at will, so nobody disturb you.
For those that want something lighter or less bulkier, Jabra had recently launched the Jabra Evolve 65t, that is mainly a reduced size and proportions , on the form of earbuds. This headset offers a nice quality and talk time compared with competitors, 5 straight hours of talk time , close to 6 on just listening mode, while some competitors just offer about a little over 2 to 3 hours max, a nice feature is that the carrying case is the same charging station, using the charging case can give you up to 15 hours of talk time!
The Evolve 75 can be considered the Evolve 65 bigger brother. It is a more sophisticated headset with additional features that will amaze any tech and not tech people. One of the main features that would like to address will be the addition of Active Noise Canceling, this will be coming from the ear cups, specially designed for those really loud work environments, this feature can be used as well with the headset off! Check my previous blog if want to learn more about Active Noise Canceling.
Another feature of the Jabra Evolve 75 is the 15 hours of talk time when fully charged. with a range of 100ft thanks to the Jabra Link 370 Bluetooth Dongle. The Evolve 75 can be found in different flavors , including Evolve 75 UC , Evolve 75 MS (Which stands for Skype for business certified), Evolve 75 UC with charging stand , Evolve 75 MS with charging stand, Evolve 75e UC, which is the earbuds style for people that don’t want something as bulky or big covering both ears, and finally the Evolve 75e MS including the Certification for Skype for business.
Personally, I have the Evolve 75 UC and I totally love it! Use it for my cell phone and to watch movies and webinars in my tablet, the range and connection is one of the best ones that I had ever seen, bypassing a lot of the competitors.
The Evolve 75e gives you a nice talk time of impressive 14 hours , similar to the full bodies Evolve 75, which is an impressive power time for a small earbud headset.
As with the Evolve 65, the Jabra Evolve 75 has a noise canceling microphone with a boom arm that can easily be clipped to the headset when not in use, plus its Built-In busy light that allows you know when you are on a call or using your headset. As the younger sibling the Evolve 65, you can turn on the Busy-light at will , perfectly designed when you don’t want to be interrupted. The Busy-light its built in to both sides of the headset and the brightness is one of the best ones in the market.
