Jawbone

I spend a lot of time on the phone at work. Some on a land line, but mostly on my cell phone. I know it’s major dorksville to have a bluetooth headset sticking out of your ear. To top it all off, they don’t always work that great–static, poor volume and terrible noise cancelation being some key issues.

I’ve tried some headsets in the past, ranging in price from $25 to $50 in the past, but was greatly disappointed in performance. I’ve been eyeing the Jawbone for a while as they were always getting good reviews. The only problem is that I had only every seen it in the $120 range. Hard to justify.

As luck would have, I was in London Drugs picking something up when I saw the Aliph Jawbone Gen 1 unit on sale for $69. There was only 1 left and it was the Red one. I snatched it up.

There is no doubt that I looked like an absolute dork with this red hair clip looking thing sticking out of my ear. To make me look like an even bigger tool, I ended up talking much louder than I needed to. This thing works so well, that even with background noise you can speak as though the person is right in front of you.

If you are looking for a BT headset, I totally recommend these headsets without hesitation. However, I would suggest taking a close look at the 2nd generation unit as it is much more elegant looking.
