Excerpt: At 1.83” long, 0.83” wide, and 0.51” tall, and weighing only 0.21 ounces, Era is tiny—one of the smallest Bluetooth headsets we’ve ever tested. The difference is especially noticeable when the older and newer units are side by side. It almost looks like the headset is too small, but it still manages to include the basic features we’d expect. Starting at the top, there’s the single earphone, which is covered by one of the silicone buds.
Conclusion: I really like the Jawbone ERA. It has a relatively diminutive form factor, small but not delicate, and is relatively lightweight. Easily paired with my iPhone 4S, it is also loaded with features (among which I like TapTap best), battery life is excellent, performs well with respect to sound and can be updated.
Pros: + Small, lightweight, + Good battery life, + Loaded with features

[Video Review] The Jawbone ERA Puts All Your Other Bluetooth Headsets To Shame
1 February 2011
Excerpt: I recently broke down and picked up a Bluetooth headset. I needed something to talk on while driving a stick-shift or working with both my hands. I wanted to get something awesome because, honestly, it's go big or go home when it comes to Bluetooth headsets, and you get what you pay for. I paid for a Jawbone ERA, and I got the best Bluetooth experience I've ever had (and I've had every iteration of the Jawbone at one time or another).
