Conclusion:

The Jabra brand has been known for its audio quality but has a  sustainable focus with the box’s 100% Recyclable material. This is followed up by the hearing protection in Jabra SafeTone™ 2.0, PeakStop 105, EU Noise at Work, G616, OSHA. At Techbuzz we regularly get questions about which is better wireless or hard-wired.  Most gamer gamers will typically use hard work function but lack the convenience of answering the door, walking to make coffee or moving around the desk. From a technical perspective hard-wired generally work better with less latency, less interference, and distortion and required no battery charging.

The Jabra Engage 50 II  has professional call quality with its noise-cancelling 3-mic technology to ensure worthy call quality which is required for both users. The earphones are ultra-lightweight and do not require a battery to charge with the controls built into the Link controller, this experience is enhanced with Noise protection for your ears with Jabra Safetone to allow comfortable use for hours. The earphones are certified for Microsoft Teams allowing for the usually expected functionality, answering and muting calls, adjust the volume.

Overall another professional hard-wired product from Jabra allows a sustainable product, ear protection, 3-year warranty with professional call quality. See video review below for more.
