Let’s check out the Engage 75

The Jabra Engage 75 is a headset that won’t leave you wishing for functionality. It’s got all kinds of special features and technologies that make for a great user experience. But when you’re considering investing in a headset like this one, you’ll want to consider some of the key features and stats to make sure it’s the right device for you. In this headset review, we’ll break down some of the most important things to know about the Engage 75.

 

Device Overview

Let’s start at the beginning. Here are some of the basic stats on the Jabra Engage 75 (as of 4/13/22):

  • Price: $518.95

  • Amazon rating: 4.4 out of 5

  • Warranty: 1 year

 

Configuration specs



Functionality specs

  • Range: Up to 490 feet

  • Security: DECT, 256-bit AES encryption, 128-bit authentification

  • Battery life: Up to 13 hours



Comfort

  • Ear cushion: The Engage 75 has a large ear cushion that will sit comfortably, even for long periods of wear. Total coverage, total comfort.

  • Headband: In addition to extra soft padding on the ears, this Jabra headset has padding on the headband, so you won’t be bothered by hard plastic pressing on your head. The band is also wider than most; this allows for wider distribution of the headset’s weight, so you won’t feel any concentrated pressure.



Compatibility

Compatible with:

  • Corded desk phones: Using the provided cords, your headset will work with the vast majority of corded desk phones. All major brands and models will be good to go.

  • Computers (USB) & softphones: All Mac and PC devices will be able to connect to the Jabra Engage 75. Jabra also promises compatibility with all softphone providers.

  • Bluetooth: Any Bluetooth-enabled device can be connected. Cell phones, tablets, you name it. And you can pair with up to two Bluetooth devices at once.

 

It’s important to note that any and all of the above connections can be established at once. Five different devices can be connected to your Jabra Engage 75 simultaneously, and 2 of them can be via Bluetooth.



Audio quality: mic & speakers

  • Mic: The mic on this Jabra headset is ultra noise-canceling, so you’ll sound crystal clear to anyone you’re on the phone with. A bustling office won’t get in the way of professional sounding audio.

  • Speakers: The sound quality of the speakers is top-notch, and users rave about it in reviews. The quality is compounded by the integration of SafeTone. This technology keeps volume levels consistent, so your ears won’t be damaged by sudden spikes in volume. To top it off, you can set your own ideal fixed volume. Once you do, the headset will take care of the rest to ensure that your listening experience is comfortable and consistent.



What makes it special

  • Built-in controls: If you’re looking to be able to navigate calls and access functionality from your headset itself, the Engage 75 fits the bill. A prominent answer/end call button on the ear piece makes remote answering easy. Mute and volume adjustment buttons are placed intuitively, so you’ll never have to struggle to control sound input and output. You’ll effortlessly control calls, and you won’t be overwhelmed by too many buttons.

  • Convertibility: Not many headsets can switch between corded and wireless setups. This one can. With the cord attached, you can enjoy the heightened sound quality and easy setup across different devices. Without the cord, you’ll be free to roam around the workplace and connect to all of your newer devices. It’s the best of both worlds, all wrapped up in one headset.

  • Accompanying apps: This is a huge selling point for Jabra headsets. The two apps are called Jabra SDK and Jabra Xpress. Between the two, you’ll be able to track data pertaining to everything from volume levels to product malfunctions. You can download these apps on a variety of devices and use them to improve your headset experience.



Buy this headset if...

… you tend to forget to charge your devices. Since the Engage 75 can transition from a wireless headset to a corded one, you don’t have to worry about forgetting to charge it. When it’s low on battery, and you don’t want to pause your calls to hook it up to the charging base, you can simply wire it up and enjoy unlimited power (unlimited power in a headset way, not in a supervillain way).

 

… you want to use your headset with all of your devices. Whether you want to connect to all of your devices individually or all at once, you’ll be able to do so easily with this Jabra headset. The wide range of connection types ensure that nearly any device you work with can be paired to the Engage 75. From a traditional corded desk phone to a brand new iPad, you’ll be connected to your headset and ready to tackle your calls.



Don’t buy this headset if...

… you’re in the market for an inexpensive headset. The Jabra Engage 75 is expensive. There’s no way around it. At $518.95, it’s not the kind of device you’d pay for in pocket change.

 

… you’re just looking for baseline headset functionality. This one goes hand in hand with the high price. When you invest over $518 in a headset, you’re going to get a lot more functionality than a more budget friendly device. The Engage 75 has everything from a touch screen base to a built-in busy light. However, some headset users just don’t need all the extra functionality. If you’re looking for a pared down headset, you’ll probably want to look at other models (and you’ll save some money by doing so).
