I certainly recommend these cans if you’re looking for a corded set for your PC and to use with your mobile device.
The headphones come in 2 parts, the cans themselves and a USB adapter.
The USB adapter plugs into the 3.5MM connection lead of the headphones thus turn the headphones into a USB Sound device.
The 3.5MM connection of the headphones is compatible with most Mobiles and laptops available today so the USB adapter may not be necessary.
The USB adapter has 5 controls, a mute button in the middle, volume up, down and next /previous track buttons on the left and right respectively.
The pads on the headphones are lightly padded and rest on the ear, lovely sound from the speaker drivers here.
The microphone is a boom type and offers plenty of adjustment, again the microphone sounds excellent for chatting.
The cans come in a nice zip-up round nylon padded case.
The Jabra Evolve 40 is an excellent replacement for the now old Plantronics Audio 478 headsets I’ve been using.
I don’t like the ear cushions as much on the Jabra - I prefer them absolutely flat as found on the Plantronics Audio 478 - but as you can’t seem to get the Audio 478 any longer then the Jabra Evolve 40 is a good compromise.
The Jabra Evolve 40 costs around $100 Australian.
