Jabra Evolve 40 MS Stereo: A Headset for Every NeedSyahiran Ismail
Jabra dominates the market as a manufacturer of headset products for communication needs, especially for the workplace with unquestionable quality. The Jabra Evolve 40 MS Stereo is no exception.
However, for this headset, Jabra comes with a communication headset design that is suitable for various devices and needs. So you can use this headset not only for work but also for play. Here’s a review of the Jabra Evolve 40 MS Stereo.
Jabra is known for producing high-quality headsets, and the Evolve 40 is no exception. With a combination of red and black, the design of the Jabra Evolve 40 is simple but looks modern. This wired headset model is similar in design to other Evolve variants, with soft leather earmuffs and foam padding on the headband for added comfort. The Evolve 40 weighs around 200 grams which makes it much more comfortable for long use than other USB headsets.
The headband on this headset is made of plastic, with a thin rubber-coated bottom. This headband supports the headset for an optimal position on the user’s head, not too tight so it remains comfortable to wear because it doesn’t put too much pressure on the ear. However, this makes it a little less sturdy when worn.
The microphone can rotate 300 degrees. Since the headset has a round and symmetrical case, users can push the microphone out of place when not in use. In addition, the bridge microphone can also be bent because the material is coated with rubber with elastic wire inside.
Evolve 40 supports the ‘Jabra Evolve Link’ terminal adapter (intuitive control unit), which is sold separately. Adapters are used to activate the microphone component of the device and to connect to a computer. When using this additional adapter, the sound is even more powerful, especially at high frequencies. Richer sound with an active adapter than with the Evolve 40 without an adapter.
The stereo version of the Jabra Evolve 40 offers Passive Noise Cancellation, to help you stay focused by blocking out the noise around you. While it doesn’t block out sound as well as Active Noise Cancellation, it still does a pretty solid job at drowning out low-level background noise. However, what really stands out about this headset is its microphone. The Evolve 40 uses DSP technology to cancel out echo and background noise, so the person on the other end of your call hears you loud and clear.
Overall, this headset is more optimal for PC devices, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be used with smartphones and other gadgets.
Jabra Evolve 40 MS Stereo is a pretty decent wired headset in terms of sound quality. What’s more, the ease of USB-A and 3.5mm connectivity makes it a very flexible choice suitable for both PC and mobile phone use.
Compared to other Jabra Evolve series, the design is lighter so the device is easier to carry around. However, the Jabra Evolve 40 MS Stereo may not yet meet the needs of audiophiles in terms of sound quality. Overall, this is a great headset for everyday communication use in terms of comfort, features, and sound clarity.
