The mic picks up your breathing which is annoying. Good mic but there are better choices out there. My daily driver is the plantronics voyager legend. Noise cancelling on the mic is better on the voyager.
I do At-Home sales work primarily in an open air environment - a porch with open screened windows from top to nearly bottom - so the noise cancelling microphone was my primary concern. It's flawless. I constantly have cars, noisy golf carts, garbage trucks, etc., going past me 25 feet away and not once has any caller noticed.
Audio quality was less of a concern for me but is superb for phone calls. I use the USB connection for Skype calls almost exclusively and I couldn't be happier. The handful of times I have used the headset with my cell the audio quality was also fine and any issues I had were due to an older cell phone model and/or lousy wireless connection, not the headset.
Two very minor issues prevented me from giving 5 stars. (1) the wires are very stiff and inflexible. It sometimes makes it difficult to get the volume/mute button placement just right on a desk or table and the wires do not adjust well to relatively small head and body movements. It's annoying to reach for a paper and have the volume control fall to the floor. (2) The adjustable microphone is a little loose and could stay in place better. It's not bad, just an occasional minor nuisance.
Overall I am extremely pleased with the purchase.
1. The dongle is pretty heavy which causes it to pull on one ear. On my previous model it was much lighter.
2. Buttons are not tactile as my previous Jabra was. You physically have to look at the buttons every time or risk hitting the wrong one.
3. The microphone can only be positioned up and down, you can't bend it farther away from your face.
4. The mute light is very hard to see. The mute on/off beep is reverse of the light. I.e. mute on = light but a "off" beep. Takes a little getting used to when you can't see the light well. But then again since the buttons aren't tactile you'll be looking at it anyway.
On the positive side
1. The noise cancellation seems pretty good though it does pick up my computer noises still.
2. The comments about hearing breathing I find to be easily solved by just putting the mic lower by your chin. My previous Jabra had a foam cover to the mic which solved the breathing problem a little more foolproof but this one seems fine.
3. The wire is of a better quality than my previous Jabra as best I can tell after a full week of use. That is about the only improvement. The failure of the wire after 3 years of use is why I had to fine a new headset in the first place.
Anyway, that's exactly what I got with these Jabra Evolve 40 Headphones. I watched a YouTube video that showed how well they cancel out environment noise (does a really great job), and the voice quality is pretty dang good. Not Blue Yeti dynamic quality, but it picks up voice great and has a nice range.
Honestly, the headphones are better than I expected though. Think high quality earbuds, but they're over the ear ones. Like other reviews mention, they don't cancel noise at all. I don't mind that at all though. Just turn your volume up and don't worry about it is my take on that. They're also not that comfortable. Although, it's more important to me that the mic quality is good and helps cut down on environment noise. This is the perfect package to accomplish that, and still be mobile.
Any questions, please post a comment. Thanks!
Also considered a bluetooth version of this from Plantronics but figured it wasn't worth twice the price to me.
