Aliph Jawbone Icon
16 September 2012
Summary: Its Noise Assassin 3.0 noise-cancellation technology is military-grade, and free apps available from Aliph's MyTalk website allow users to customize their headsets' functionality. However, the Jawbone Icon's main competitor may be the Jawbone Era (*Est. $60) , now available at a similar price.
Pros: Excellent sound quality, Highly customizable features, Stylish, with a variety of designs
Cons: No volume rocker switch, Ear-hook somewhat uncomfortable
Excerpt: The Holy Grail. The perfect cherry blossom. A four leaf clover. The perfect bluetooth headset. *BUZZ* “What are things that are searched for?” “That is correct!” Personally I’m interested in the headset, but I wouldn’t mind finding a four leaf clover. On my quest I’ve found headsets that were almost perfect, but failed for one reason or another. Will Aliph’s latest Jawbone offering end my searching? Read on to find out.
Pros: Excellent sound quality on both ends of the call., Comfortable and extremely secure in the ear., Noise cancellation works extremely well.
Excerpt: Now that Bluetooth headsets have become a mainstay in the market place – design is becoming as important as functionality. Many companies are kicking it...
Pros: Excellent sound quality and noise cancellation, great design aesthetics, very easy to pair with devices, extra earbuds and optional earloop are included for a perfect fit, app store extends the functionality of the headset
Cons: Fingerprints can be annoying, would have liked a carrying pouch for the price, pricier than most bluetooth headsets.
Excerpt: Bluetooth headsets. They’re still not the most stylistically approved gadget amongst our crew, but their convenience, safety, and features make them increasingly more difficult not to embrace. That is, so long as you don’t wear one to dinner (see rule #2). Jawbone recently sent over the Jawbone Icon ($99), which caught our second glance after seeing that it was CNET’s highest rated headset , ever.
Excerpt: (1 items) Aliph’s $100 Jawbone Icon is the latest in the company’s line of Bluetooth headsets, sporting a stylish new look—or more accurately, six different new looks, as Aliph offers the Icon in six dramatically named styles: Hero, Rogue, Thinker, Ace, Catch, and Bombshell. (I tested the Ace.) Each Icon is tiny at just 1.8 inches long, 0.9 inches tall, and 0.7 inches thick.
Summary: The Aliph Jawbone Icon is rather pricey and lacks volume keys, but, if luxury is your bag, then its noise-cancelling capability, downloadable extras and simple interface will probably satisfy you
Pros: Amusing downloadable voices, If used in conjunction with an iPhone, the Icon's battery life will be displayed on the phone's screen, Effective noise-cancellation feature
Cons: No volume control, Flimsy ear loop, Expensive
