Design

1.has stereo speakers
Jabra Evolve2 85
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.sweat resistant
Jabra Evolve2 85
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
3.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Jabra Evolve2 85
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
4.weight

286g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
5.has a tangle free cable
Jabra Evolve2 85
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
6.cable length

1.2m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

1.has passive noise reduction
Jabra Evolve2 85
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
2.has active noise-canceling (noise control)
Jabra Evolve2 85
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
3.lowest frequency

20Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
4.highest frequency

20000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
5.has a neodymium magnet
Jabra Evolve2 85
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
6.driver unit size

40mm

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.

Microphone

1.has a noise-canceling microphone
Jabra Evolve2 85
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
2.number of microphones

10

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
3.Has a wind noise reduction microphone
Jabra Evolve2 85
A wind noise reduction microphone is designed to reduce wind interference, providing sharper audio in windy situations.
4.mic sensitivity

-35dBV/Pa

It's the 'loudness' of the sound that the microphone can pick up.
5.highest frequency mic

8000Hz

The highest frequencies that the mic can pick up well. Better for recording treble.
6.lowest frequency mic

100Hz

The lowest frequencies that the mic can pick up well. Better for recording bass. If a microphone is going to be used for speech, a voice microphone, it must have great gain for bass, since human voice is in the low frequencies.
