DIGIT Product Review: Jabra Evolve 75e Headphones
It’s time to gear up and DIGIT is here to guide you to the very best gadgets on the market. For our inaugural product, we look at the Jabra Evolve 75e, the world’s first professional UC-certified wireless earbuds.
There is no denying that wireless headphones are a truly liberating experience, no annoying cables to catch on door handles or to generally cause you a massive faff. Let’s face it, unless you are working at your desk or gaming who even uses wire headphones anymore?
If you forget that you are wired up to your music it becomes all too easy to inadvertently yank them from your ear – darn those sneaky door knobs – or worse you send your phone falling to the floor, we’ve all been there. So, this is the first thing we love about the Jabra e75 headphones, they are wireless and therefore risk-free of snagging on something.
Now, if you happen to have long locks you will know the pain of getting cables caught in your hair and then having to painfully unpick them taking a good chunk of hair with it if they have a rubbery texture. The Jabra headphones do not do this. They are smooth and easy to slide on and off no matter the hair length. For this one feature alone, I will be ditching my wireless Dre-Beats in favour of the Jabras.
Delightful Features and Ease of Use
The neckband and the magnetic earbuds makes for easy wearing. Even if you have to pop the earbuds out, the headphones won’t be going anywhere and won’t get in your way. This is a great feature for when you are working out, in the office or struggling through airport security where you are having to strip, redress and repack everything while being hurried along.
With five function buttons, you get quick easy control over your calls and music. Next, and maybe most important, is the fact they vibrate when you turn them on and off. Often, you think erroneously that your headphones are off only to discover hours later they were on the whole time and now you are left high and dry with no tunes, making for the world’s most boring airport wait or least pumped workout.
Other offerings on the market have a beep feature and flashing light to indicate if they are on or off, but that can be easily missed or misinterpreted. With this handy tactile feature, you won’t be running your battery down while they sit unused. These beauties feature lithium-ion battery technology, they charge within two hours and then give you 14 hours of battery life, which means music all day long. A bonus feature is that when not in use the magnetic earbuds conveniently snap together, the headphones then activate their power-nap mode – bless battery efficiency.
Furthermore, the smart controls make it a cinch to switch between music and calls, including a smart button for one-touch access to Siri and Google Now. It comes with a vibrating neckband to alert you with silent notifications, very handy when you don’t want to distract nearby co-workers.
No Trade Off on the Sound
Now, normally when you get wireless headphones you seem to sacrifice sound quality. Noise-cancelling over-ear headphones have raised the game and now anything else sounds poor in comparison. But the sound from these headphones is awesome and they almost entirely cancel out other noise, meaning you can focus or zone-out totally – your choice!
Not only are the earbuds amazing for listening to music, they are surprisingly comfortable to wear for long periods of time. This is down to their EarGels and EarWings, which provide you with a personalised and sealed fit, meaning no more aching ears.
Overall verdict? DIGIT fully endorses this product! At £254.00 they aren’t cheap but they are worth every penny if you value high-quality sound and a comfortable fit. They have totally changed my opinion on wireless headphones, the only regret I have is that I wasted so much money and time on other products.
