Jabra Evolve2 30 Review; What Productivity Sounds Like

Staff ni Anjie

A home office setup isn't complete without a trusty pair of headphones, especially now that most people's 9-to-5 jobs are filled with seemingly endless Zoom calls. There are already a lot of true wireless earphones available in the market today. However, a percentage of consumers still prefer the familiarity of office-focused headsets or wired over-ear headphones with their microphones sticking out. Jabra, an audio brand known for its sports audio offerings, covers this department with the Jabra Evolve2 30 headphones. Here's what it brings to your (work) table.

The Jabra Evolve2 30 might not be the most beautiful pair of headphones you can lay your eyes on, but its ergonomics cover its lack of unique details on its design. The device comes with soft and comfortable memory foam earpads that promote comfortable use and bring passive noise isolation. Even the stainless metal headband of the Jabra Evolve2 30 is conveniently padded, so that's a sturdy over-ear bridge sans the stiffness and clamped feeling for you.

On the right earcup is where the boom mic and on-ear controls with three buttons for volume adjustment and track selection are located, alongside the mute button for the microphone, which is a very well-thought-out addition. You might've heard some unfortunate stories from friends who forgot to mute their microphones while on important meetings, so the one-click mute button of the Jabra Evolve2 30 is a feature most people didn't know they needed. There's also a button intended for answering and ending calls or opening Microsoft Teams notifications. Again, the controls are responsive enough to do the tasks they were made for.

The right side of the device is also where the microphone is attached, which we must say is the best part of the Jabra Evolve2 30. Like most headphones with this kind of design, the microphone can be rotated upwards so that it won't be a nuisance when you're not using it. Below the part where the microphone is attached to the headphones sits the hardwired cable. Other notable features of the Jabra Evolve2 30 are the Microsoft Teams status LED and the LED that lights up automatically when you're on a call, doubling up as a 'Do Not Disturb' sign.

In terms of packaging, the Jabra Evolve2 30 ships with neat inclusions -- there's only a gray felt storage pouch and the usual paperwork for the user manual.

Expounding on what we mentioned earlier about the microphone of the Jabra Evolve2 30 being its main selling point, we're pretty impressed by how it's able to bring crystal clear audio both when used in recording and actual calls, even in environments where there are background noises that can be a disturbance in Zoom calls. This means that Jabra perfected what it intended the Evolve2 30 to be -- a device for stutter-less and unclouded audio for video conferencing.

Another plus factor about the Jabra Evolve2 30 is it's good at playing music for casual listening. It did well in delivering tracks across various genres with a solid balance between the mids and highs and just the right amount of bass, all thanks to its 28mm drivers.

Since the Jabra Evolve2 30 is wired, one might think that the headphones lack over-the-air Bluetooth updates, but Jabra ensured that this wouldn't be a problem. In addition, the Evolve2 30 comes compatible with the Jabra Direct, Jabra's very own software where Windows and macOS users can get the latest firmware upgrades and personalize the Evolve2 30 by customizing its music settings, controls, and audio protection levels.

The Jabra Evolve2 30 is also all about no-fuss use and can be enjoyed via plug-and-play. No unnecessary steps are needed to install a driver or whatnot. Just plug its 1.5m-long USB-A or USB-C cable into your PC or laptop, and you're good to go. Again, this might be trivial for some. Still, given that the Evolve2 30 is made for working professionals who might not have the patience and the luxury of time to go through a complicated initial product setup, this is another factor that makes the Evolve2 30 worth the buy.


In the sea of TWS earphones, the traditionally designed Jabra Evolve2 30 unapologetically prides itself as a good choice. With its outstanding features combined with a two-year warranty tagged at a budget-friendly price, it deserves a spot in any WFH professional's list of home office must-haves.
