In March of 2020, the world suddenly stood still as the effects of Covid-19 spread across the globe. Schools, churches, offices, and public spaces went silent as the number of critically ill patients overwhelmed healthcare systems. Health authorities told anyone not considered to be part of an essential, frontline workforce to stay at home.
Restaurants with take-out, drive-throughs, and delivery services struggled to keep up with demand. At the same time, non-essential businesses scrambled to reimagine a workforce that could function in the new normal. Before the pandemic, only about 20% of Americans worked full time from home. According to Pew Research, that number jumped to over 70% by the end of 2020.
Now that infection rates continue a steady decline, many schools and businesses are reopening their doors for the first time in over a year. Workers adept at performing their jobs remotely are reluctant to return to systems that now feel somewhat outdated. In the early stages of lockdown, managers feared a drop in productivity that never came to fruition.
As it turns out, many remote workers felt they were happier and therefore more productive. Without everyday office distractions and restrictions, they created their own spaces to work uninterrupted. With technology already available, they could still meet face-to-face while keeping up with their job duties. Apps like Zoom, Slack, Google Teams, and others kept coworkers connected and collaborating.
It’s still too early to tell how teleworking will affect the way we conduct business moving forward. However, some big brands have already reduced office space or have shut them down completely, eliminating some serious overhead. Amazon, Facebook, Dropbox, Nationwide, and others have already created permanent work-from-home positions or hybrid business models to allow their employees the flexibility they’ve come to enjoy.
Who is Jabra?
Jabra is a global brand with a serious passion for sound and an impressive list of history-making innovations. As part of the GN group, they were the first company to lay telegraph cables connecting Europe and Asia. Sound experts for over a century, Jabra created the first ultra-noise-canceling microphones and were the first to put an in-ear heart monitor in a pair of sports earbuds.
Jabra is the only company developing consumer, professional, and medical-grade sound devices under one roof. In 1869, founder C.F. Tietgen envisioned a more connected world. Since then, an ambitious 150-year journey has taken us from telegraph cables to pioneering technology that keeps customers connected and hearing more of what matters.
With unrivaled knowledge of the human ear, Jabra is in the business of helping customers hear more of what they want to hear and less of what they don’t.

Jabra’s headsets have repeatedly been recognized as the gold standard in innovation and design. Some of the numerous product and design awards include the CES Innovation, the iF product design award, a Red Dot Mobile Choice Best Accessory, the T3 Gold award, and CNET Editor’s Choice. After testing hundreds of products, The New York Times “Wirecutter” recently chose the Jabra Elite 75t as the year’s best wireless Bluetooth earbuds!

Jabra Elite 85t
Our brand new Jabra Elite 85t offers noise cancellation and big, beautiful sound in a sleek, compact design.
Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) cancels the noise you don’t want to hear; HearThrough (our word for transparency mode) lets in the sounds you do. With 11 levels of sound – from full ANC to full HearThrough – your earbuds are synced with the way your ear perceives changes in volume and can be adjusted through an app.
The Elite 85t buds have been engineered with next-level noise cancellation technology to give you complete control over how you hear the world around you. Fully adjustable HearThrough lets you choose how much of the outside world you want to let in using a handy slider. Find the perfect setting and save it quickly with the touch of a button. Shut out the world, listen to music, or tap to pause so you won’t miss the barista calling your name.
All this incredible tech needs incredible processing power. Jabra built in a dedicated processing chip to power our intuitive sound modes.
Our latest buds feature a semi-open design with pressure relief vents that prevent pressure build-up inside the ear. Three sizes of smooth, silicone oval EarGels™ create a secure, noise-canceling seal, boosting your sound quality and keeping your ears feeling great all day.
Enjoy total wireless freedom when you opt for a single earbud, wireless over-ear headphones, or sports earbuds. They don’t just look great; they sound great. With wind noise reduction and superior sound quality, you can unplug entirely while staying connected.
Wireless headphones work by pairing with the device you want to use through a radio or infrared signal. Connect with your smartphone or tablet to listen to music, podcasts, or audiobooks. Pair with your sports watch to hear updates on pace, heart rate, and distance.
A product with Bluetooth technology has a tiny computer chip inside that contains the Bluetooth radio and software that makes connectivity between devices possible. When Bluetooth-enabled products, such as cell phones and headphones, are near each other, they connect or pair. The pairing enables you to talk on the phone or listen to music without being tethered to your devices.
