Pros: Very light, sounds great, battery life is more than sufficient for a days use, when I ask people I call if they can tell I am on a headset they always answer no. I use this in clients homes where there is spotty cell coverage, most of the time I can leave my phone in a window and travel thru out ...
Summary: This is the first Bluetooth I've owned(don't laugh). I've never really liked them and the people who wore them seemed ridiculous to me. However, my needs have changed and I absolutely needed a BT headset. I read some reviews and Jawbone was highly regarded amongst the other brands. I now know why.
Pros: Classy, sleek, non geek design. Small in size. The led is on the inner part of the device while wearing it so you don't have to worry about looking like a pseudo-robot with lights flashing near your ears or cheek since it isn't openly visible to others. In other words, it's quite inconspicuous fo...
Cons: None so far, and as long as this bluetooth does not fail on me in the near future, there will BE none.
Summary: The support for the replacement Jawbone was VERY easy. I contacted them via e-mail and via phone and had my RMA sent and returned within 5 days. The new one works flawlessly and to be honest is very awesome to have.
Pros: Small, lightweight, great looks, amazing battery life, simple to connect, turn on, activate you name it. For the price and the features that this device has, they are all pluses.
Cons: When I received the device from Newegg, it would not charge or hold any bit of a charge. It would blink, NOT pulse, a red light. If the device BLINKS a red light, then the battery is dead and will not charge. Because of getting this device dead on arrival, I would have to subtract an egg
Summary: I ordered 2, one for me and one for my wife. We both love this Jawbone. We have had many different units over the years and this one is by far the best. I can see why people have paid $100 dollars or more for these units.
Pros: Light weight, easy to operate with great sound.
Summary: I am somewhat of a Bluetooth junkie. For forty bucks you can not go wrong with this earpiece!!!
Pros: This the second Jawbone owned. First was a Prime which I loved. With both they have great custom fit to your ear with the various accessories included. Really like the application for the Icon line. Very easy to pair. Newegg shipping is outstanding, only took three days to receive with free shipp...
Summary: i have checked the comments in neweggs for these jawbones! people say they get fake and used jawbone! i assure you that i didn't get a fake one! mine was brand new and unopened! i was reluctant to buy it because of the reviews that newegg is getting!
Pros: very satisfied with the shipment, recieved it in 4 working days! everything is in the box! unopened and new! applications are really cool! i got the valentines audio app and the bombshell girl is so sexy! fits well on my ear! i wear it and it feels like im not wearing it! noise cancelation is so ...
Cons: i know im expected to get a white jawbone icon! but i would like a green one coz i like green! it would be nice to have a volume button istead of a multi-function button! battery life is so short compared to what im use to!
Summary: Bought the same item elsewhere for less money and got the full retail box - brand new item. Again - Newegg made good on the returns but this should not have happened.
Pros: This is the best bluetooth made - I prefer to use it over using the cell alone. My rating is for the new product I received after returning two units to Newegg...
Cons: This is my first NewEgg bash. Item is not as shown. You dont get the fit kit. Sent back the first and got another - same deal. Both were also previously paired so in my book - used. Sent back to Newegg without hassle but the item should be taken down or relisted as used,
Cons: Tried it a couple of times and the party on the other side of the line heard echo.. then it broke it won't pair with my droid anymore.. when I wanted to create an RMA to return it I didn't realize that it's nonrefundable, but only exchangeable...
Pros: 1) Easy to pair. 2) Easy to operate, buttons and switch are easier and more intuitive than they were on my jawbone 2. 3) Mullipoint pairing works well. 4) the MyTalk site make changing the anounce voice easy to change.
