Summary: The headset works, but does not give clear reception much of the time. Those I have spoken with via the headset often complain about not being able to hear me well and that it sounds as though I am under water.
V quality fine, will the earbuds ever be comfortable?

Summary: Some years ago I owned a jawbone, but tired of it falling out of my ear and never being comfortable. In the interim, I've had a Plantronics Voyager Pro, which I've liked, but as it had reached the end of its life, thought I'd try the new Jawbone based on reviews I read.
Pros: Good voice quality, noise cancellation, appearance.
Summary: My second Jawbone(first was a HD ICON) and my second disappointment! Be it the iPhone, or my iPhone, these headsets provide rubbish clarity for both the caller and callee. I bought this as a backup to my Plantronics Legend, and they are just night and day. The legend just walks all over the ERA!
Summary: I have tried many bluetooth headsets over the years. Most are plagued with the same issues - difficult for the party on the other end of the line to hear, and excessive background noise. This unit despite claims to the contrary is no different.
Summary: Pretty low quality for the jawbone name. Can barely hear anyone. No one can hear me. Real cheapo Flimsy thin plastic over ear holder-Will not stay on my ear. Spent more time picking it up off the floor in public places than actually using it.
Summary: I own the Icon and the Era and I agree with many other people, the ear pieces are horrible! I have very small ear canals and even their smallest ear piece leaves my ear sore after less than 10 minutes! That's because the speaker on the headset is too big.
Pros: Looks pretty. Did sound good, at least in the beginning.
Cons: The Era speaker started sounding like a cracked speaker 6 months after I bought it. On both my Icon and Era, people, complained they couldn't understand me sometimes. Very uncomfortable earpieces that twisted around causing the headset to fall out!
Summary: The jawbone era is not a good bluetooth headset. I am an avid jawbone fan and have never had the problems I and many, many others have had with the ERA. The many problems are well documented in the jawbone forums on the jawbone website.
