The Jabra Speak2 75 is a portable speakerphone device for conference calls and other audio meetings. It is designed to be easy to use and offers high-quality audio and a range of features that make it a valuable tool for remote workers and teams.
It is a compact and portable device that connects to computers, smartphones, and tablets via Bluetooth or USB. It has a built-in omnidirectional microphone that can capture sound from any direction and cancel out background noise. Additionally, the device features high-quality speakers that produce clear and crisp audio output.
It also supports integration with popular communication software, such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and Skype, making it a versatile option for remote workers and teams.
In this article I’ll walk through what you get when you buy the Jabra Speak2 75, the sound & microphone quality, and my daily use experience of the device.
What’s Included in the Box?
It’s quite a packed box full of goodies:
- The speakerphone.
- Link 380 Bluetooth adapter.
- USB-C cable for connection and charging. It also has a USB-A adapter in case you don’t have a USB-C connection.
- Carry pouch
Microphone & Sound Quality
One of the features of the Jabra Speak2 75 is the microphone quality indicator. A 360˚ LED ring is built into the device, giving you a visual guide on how well the microphones pick up voices. A ring LED glows means the voices are being picked up properly, but an orange ring or even a flashing light indicates the voice pick-up is poor.
This feature will avoid you from having to ask folk on the other end of the call, “Can you hear me? Do I need to move the microphone?”
The sound quality of the speaker is full of life. Voices from my colleagues and peers don’t sound dull, it’s a very rich sound.
The Jabra Speak2 75 provides advanced full duplex audio, with a supercharged chipset, which for the end user means you can have a naturally flowing conversation with people. This speakerphone allows people to speak and be heard at the same time, but with the Jabra Speak2 75 this is possible
Daily Usage Experiences
I’ve really enjoyed using the Jabra Speak2 75 as my daily driver. It’s sat connected to my laptop for several weeks now. The sound quality of the speaker is superb. Listening to music or listening to colleagues talk has been impressive.
Regular readers will know how much I enjoy Jabra’s products, but this one for speaker quality has blown me away. I was not expecting such a versatile top-notch speaker.
My home office isn’t large, but the speaker has been great at picking up my voice whether I’ve been sitting at my desk or maybe walking around.
Using the speaker in a meeting room was impressive as well. Whether the room was small or large it was able to provide a good level of volume for me to hear. And picking up my voice was still consistent and high quality.
The carry pouch is a must-have accessory for when you are travelling, slipping the speakerphone into the carry pouch protects it in your backpack. Weighing around 466g the speakerphone isn’t that heavy or noticeable.
The speakerphone has touch screen-style buttons on the hardware, ones to increase volume, decrease it, answer calls, decline calls, and most important, mute or unmute. I’ve loved having this feature, it’s enabled me to keep my hands off my keyboard and mouse during meetings and use the Jabra Speak2 75 instead for those controls. Making me more present within meetings and less likely to try and multitask.
The battery life has an impressive 32-hour battery, which I’ve found reliable, plus charging is easy with the built-in cable and fast. Another button on the speakerphone itself allows you to check how much battery is left, or not.
I also read that the Jabra Speak2 75 rated IP64 for dust and water resistance so I look forward to the summer and being able to have calls outside and not have to worry.
The Jabra Speak2 75 is on the expensive side, currently retailing at £378 in the UK direct from Jabra.
But it’s a versatile device. It can be used on your desk at home. It can be used in meeting rooms with multiple participants. It can be a speaker to listen to music with.
As with anything, if you are going to use it then it is worth the money.
I really like this speakerphone. My Jabra Evolve2 75 headphones are usually my go when working at home, but the Jabra Speak2 75 has now overtaken as my favourite device both at home and when in the office.
It’s very versatile, easy to set up and easy to use. I’d recommend this without hesitation.
Another quality device from Jabra!
