Designed for office use, the Jabra Evolve2 30 is a great pair of wired lightweight headphones that you can also use at home. The headphones sport soft memory foam on-ear cushions, and a microphone designed for noisy work environments. You’ll like how comfortable it is to wear for long periods, as well.

Weighing at around 125g, the Evolve2 30 is lighter compared with the Poly Voyager Focus UC we previously reviewed. However, the difference of 30g isn’t a lot, and is likely due to the fact that the Evolve2 30 isn’t wireless and thus, has no batteries on board. Still, the weight means you will barely feel it while wearing it. The on-ear cups also don’t press in too tightly on your head, making it really comfortable. They don’t provide that much sound isolation, but do adequately block out background noise.
Located on the right side is the microphone, which features a dual-mic array to reduce background noise while you’re talking. It works fine on calls — I was told I sounded crystal clear. A mute button is located on the right earcup. There are also volume controls and a play button. The main button on the outside of the right earcup activates Microsoft Teams notifications (but I don’t have Teams set up to test this).
The Evolve2 30 uses 28mm drivers, and the sound is pretty good. In fact, it’s good enough to use to listen to music with. The sound is very balanced. There’s distinct separation between the highs, mids, and lows. The bass could be slightly stronger, but you’ll like it if you aren’t a fan of overly bassy music. Overall, it’s a very clear sound.
There’s plenty to like about the Jabra Evolve2 30, especially its price. It retails for S$156 officially, but you can get it cheaper on Lazada. The USB-C version appears to be cheaper, too. The headset is about the same price on Amazon (SG or US), which you can consider getting there if you want faster shipping. It’s also sold on Shopee, but the price seems to be a hefty markup. Do note that there’s a non-Microsoft Teams certified version that’s cheaper as well. It’s mostly the same though, just without the dedicated Teams button and LED alerts.
