Conclusion: The Era is a great device that not only looks great but also sounds great. It would have been nice to have volume controls on the device itself and a slightly better battery life, but given that this is the second version of the Era, no doubt these will be addressed if the company chooses to refresh the device again. Still, for a comfortable Bluetooth headset that does exactly what it’s supposed to, the Jawbone Era is hard to beat.
TechBargains Review - Jawbone Era Bluetooth Headset
19 January 2013
Summary: Our nitpicking above shouldn't be seen as anything other than just that: nitpicking. We were certainly impressed by the total package of the Jawbone ERA Bluetooth Headset. It fits easily and unobtrusively in the ear, making and ending calls is simple and intuitive, and the sound quality is great for such a tiny device. Jawbone has created a headset that will inspire the industry to match it; look for even greater innovations to come.
Pros: Form and Architecture, Sound Quality, Ease of Setup, Motion Controls
Excerpt: Let’s start with a disclaimer — we don’t know any folks who really wants to wear a Bluetooth headset while they’re talking on their phone. And if we did, we would probably tell them to get over themselves. When we’re walking down the street and see someone rocking the headset as they cruise around, not even on a call , well, we’re not that kind of nerd. That said, there are times where a headset is unavoidable — especially if you commute in a car.

Excerpt: By Charlie Brown I have long wanted an earpiece that lives up to its hype. Over the past few years I have had many PRs and companies come to me saying they have the ultimate earpiece for your mobile phone; “There’s no crackle”, “there’s no sound delay”, “there’s no echo”, and my personal favourite “the sound is as clear as a bell”. Well I have yet to find such a device. Until now.
Pros: Excellent sound, fits in ear nicely, unobtrusive
Cons: A bit pricey, can’t answer phone manually with call dropping out
