I don’t know about all of you but I need my hands be free to do a lot of other stuff rather than hold onto a cell phone all day long. I searched around different brands, different stores, different models and I still did not know what Bluetooth headset to get. I did remember however that there was a brand called Jawbone that a lot of middle-aged men in suits, ties, and shiny shoes that would blind you if you looked straight at them used. Times have chenged and so has Jawbone’s style. Nowadays, Jawbone has come out with a line that is sleek, elegant, and all-around architechual looking at times. The two that I’m going talk about are the Jawbone ERA and the Jawbone ICON HD+THE NERD. These headsets are absolutely amazing, smart, stylish and do exactly what I need them to do.
First off let’s start with the Jawbone ERA. This bad boy has motion control that means you can magically control your headset with a shake shake to enter pairing mode or tap tap the headset to answer phone calls. Built in motion sensors create new interactions and levels of intelligence. This thing is seriously smart. Also, you can listen to music listen in HD, caller ID by name and it has automatic volume control.
The ICON on the other hand, has many of the same functions as the ERA but with the little NERD adapter that you can plug in to any USB port like a computer. It will turn your computer that does not have Bluetooth into a Bluetooth capable device. Another thing with the NERD and the ICON HD is that my laptop currently is not Bluetooth capable. We were on an airplane a couple of weeks ago and all I had to do was plug the NERD adapter in to my laptop. Then I was able to listen to a movie in HD when I could not previously.
Both of these headsets come with Noise Assassin. The Noise Assassin is the original background noise killer and this is the only full noise canceling technology on the market developed for use by real commanders and helicopter pilots in our armed forces. I’m telling you…this technology is stunning. One thing that I love about these headsets is I can walk in the door after coming home from work with my ERA in my ear paired with my cell phone, walk over to the counter and have the ERA connect to my iPad. Then watch a video on YouTube through my iPad and then get a phone call on my cell phone and be able to answer on the same headset. Multitasking Maestro!
