Here I am finally with the new Jawbone Era Wireless Bluetooth Headset for my Google Nexus S phone. I was searching for one quality headset after my Jabra died on me. Although I loved my Jabra, the headsets which the company manufactures are no where close to the features provided bu others. Quick research online provided me with two alternatives, Plantronics and Jawbone.
The Jawbone Era line has very similar features to the top end plantronics M-1000 headset. The Era was also cheaper than the Plantronics by $40. Few of my friends also have been using Jawbone headsets and swear by the effectiveness of the Noise-Assassin feature. Although Plantronics offers the same feature, the cheaper price was the deciding factor for me. I wasn't willing to pay $120+ on a headset which I use for 3 hours a day while commuting.
The Era has many features which I like. You can change the voice which tells you the time and the battery life remaining. The Jawbone Companion for Android also provides additional features on my phone such as battery life remaining, A2DP etc. Also the headset supports full HD sound for playing music, if you use it for that feature.
The sound quality is great, but at the maximum volume the caller voice does get little jittery. Having said that, I doubt anyone would hardly be using the headset at max volume, especially because the volume is pretty loud at medium levels. For people who take calls with a lot of ambient sound around you, the Noise Assassin feature can be turned on with one click. The feature works very well and the other party couldn't make out If I was outside or indoors.
Apart from the above, the Era also supports other Apps which allows Facebook and Twitter integration. You can now speak to tweet!
Overall, I am very satisfied with the product and would recommend to everyone specially because it retails at around $80 on ebay.
I was a skeptic about Bluetooth headsets seeing them as extension of the business crowd of mover's and shaker's hanging out at Starbuck’s…The ones that liked to be seen and not merely heard. After purchasing my first set, my opinion went largely unchanged.
Now, I have finally gotten used to sticking something in my ear except a Q-tip, so I will move on to the acknowledged standard of decency; the Jawbone Era. This Bluetooth does not impress me that much more than some others did quite frankly. I found the quality of the sound on the receiving end to be somewhat muffled and very difficult to distinguish more often than not. I also ruffled some papers while talking on the phone with a friend and he immediately though that I was wrestling with alligators somewhere. This occurred while the Noise Assassin 3.0 was shut off.
That said, the Jawbone ERA is definitely clearer than most sets, but the volume is also poor and if you wish to alter the volume from the default automatic setting, you must then opt out of the feature which has distinguished Jawbone, the Noise Assassin 3.0.
With the standard ear buds I am confounded how to find any comfortable position with any of them. I am going to experiment with other brands of buds. I have been told that the headset works much better with Jabra ear gels and that they seem to increase the listening volume, as well. Time will tell since I ordered some for replacement of the standard Jawbone ERA ear buds. However, the comfort of anything which is stuck into the human ear seems to be impossibility.
Beautiful headset with the best amount of ear pieces to to fit my ear. Honestly the first bluetooth headset to fit my ear perfectly and have great sound. I've got 1 other jawbone headset and 2 Plantronics headsets which consist of Plantronics 925 & 975 and this Jawbone exceeds them both in fit,size,features and sound qualiy. Pandora sounds great too. My only complaint is no apps support for Android like iPhone & Blackberry.
I really love this Jawbone Era. It syncs well with my work phone and personal cell phone and I am able to make and receive calls from both units through my Jawbone without any problems. I absolutely love the tap motion sensor too. It reconnects to my cell phones easily when I go out of range and return without having to do much of anything.
I can also hear very well in any type of setting that I am in. I went skating the other night and the person on the other end heard me very well while I was skating at the roller rink.
Just for those two reasons above, it was money well spent. The pouch could be a lot easier to use. So most times I don't even use it.
I wish the talk time would or could be much better and longer. Maybe it is just me, but I talk more than 5 hours. So, I do find that I have to keep it fully charge and it loses it before my day is done.
I've only had it for one day but I'm impressed. I did my research and found the Jawbone Era to be rated top of the line. The cost is a bit much but I did save on Ebay. The Assassin feature was the major selling point. What good is bluetooth if the person you're calling can't hear you?
