After Research and Testing
For starters, the Jabra Direct Software took a complete over haul on the previous version. The layout, color, and aesthetic is much more user friendly and pleasing to the eye (see image above). Navigation and features have greatly improved, and yes, it’s 100% free! You can download the software here depending on your operating system: Jabra Direct Windows: 5.0.17635 or Jabra Direct macOS: 5.0.17635.
As for the Jabra Evolve2 85, the biggest claim was the microphone improvement. In our test we found that the difference between the pre update and post update was virtually non-existent. Otherwise, all other patches ( improved performance of earcup microphones, handling of play/pause media, improved sidetone level and response, HearThrough level response, and stability improvements) was noticeably better.
