Jabra introduces a number of speakers that should make hybrid work and online meetings a lot more pleasant.
Jabra today introduces new speakers in a new range: the Speak2 series. The speakers are designed to enhance hybrid conversations, but can also be used for media streaming after hours.
Jabra research found that 42% of employees do not always understand what is being said in meetings. That problem should be solved with these speakers: the devices were designed in such a way that everyone can always be heard and you can also be heard. Hybrid conversations should also become more natural thanks to full duplex audio. That technology would make it seem like your interlocutors are in the same room. Beamforming microphones and voice level normalization technology also ensure that you always come across clearly and naturally, without background noise.
The speakers are designed to work smoothly with collaboration software such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom. In addition, the devices would be easy to set up and require only minimal configuration.
The series consists of 3 speakers: the Speak2 75, Speak2 55 and Speak2 40. Of the three speakers, the Speak2 75 is the most extensive, with unique functions such as a microphone sound quality indicator and Microsoft Swift Pair. The Speak2 75 would also deliver the best sound with its super-wideband audio and full-range 65mm speaker. The speaker can be used wirelessly for 32 hours. The Speak2 50 doesn’t have those unique features and has a maximum battery life of 12 hours. The Speak2 40 has no internal battery and is used with a USB cable.
The three Speak2 speakers.
The speakers will be available from the end of March 2023. The price for the Speak2 75 is €339. However, if you don’t need those unique features, you can pick up a Speak2 55 for €169. The Speak2 40 will cost €149.
