Others can hear me

Summary: After using several different blue tooth devices this one is the best so far. My callers can hear me loud and clear and vice versa. The only down side is the battery life. Only 3 hours of talk time.
Summary: I've been eyeing a jawbone since they first came out but refused to spend more than $50 on a bluetooth, which I normally lose or break. When I saw a refurbished icon up for grabs for $35 (shipped!!!) it was a no brainer.
Reliable, satisfactory, and a great value at this price

Summary: 4.5 stars. After 3 unsatisfactory Plantronics Voyagers, I gave Jawbone a second look and found this ICON series had much higher ratings than previous models, so I took a chance. It is entirely satisfactory for telephone calls or listening to MP3 in mono.
Summary: Works fairly well. Not the greatest when outside in the wind, but all in all it's a great product. It appears to cut some noise, but not all. However, I have never had one that did it very efficiently. This is the best one I've had to date, but still not quite what I was hoping for.
Summary: Let me start off by saying I hate bluetooth headsets. I have owned two previously, and I always found they had poor sound, were uncomfortable, full of buttons I could never remember how to use, and never would stay in my ear. For the longest time I was much happier with a cheap wired version.
Summary: I've had this a few weeks now and used it with both a samsung impression and the Atrix 4g. It paired well with both and sounds excellent. My callers tell me they can hear me clearly and I can hear them in return. The software side, My Talk, is only ok.
Summary: Been using it for 2 weeks. Pro: Nice looking, small, easy to sync with my iPhone 3GS. Sound quality is good. Con: Have tried all the earbuds, still not that attach to the ear unless use the hook.
Summary: I replaced a Plantronics Voyager Pro+ with this headset. I think the Pro+ sounds slightly better to people I call but gets uncomfortable when I wear eyeglasses. The ICON is definitely more comfortable.
Pros: Small. Good noise canceling and very comfortable. The ability to choose different voices is fun. The battery indicator on an Android or iPhone is really nice.
Cons: Learning to place the headset in a secure position isn't easy.
Summary: A nice compact device, but sometimes the reception in the earpiece is fuzzy, like listening to someone speak and gargle. Is it because it's not pressed to my jaw? Maybe, so I am lenient on the stars. Comfortable to wear, but falls out of the ear easily, too, if the earpad rotates.
