Excerpt: I have had this device for a few weeks. In a quiet car no mater the position the caller on the other end says it sounds like I am using a device and the it comes in and out. Also the ear loop is flimsy and it has fallen of so many times the pice fell off and is lost. The comfort fits do not fit well I have tried all of them. Not really happy with the purchase. The good is the base is is sufficient. The volume is fair.
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. I foolishly assumed that in the time between versions, some serious attention would be placed on the earbuds. To me, they fit no better.
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! So my advice, don't waste your money. Just get a Plantronics Legend instead!
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. Unless you push the unit into your cheek when you talk the other party cant hear you, features are good, but if you want to be heard, consistently and be hands free try something else.
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. Also, the rubber piece would twist around causing the headset to come loose and fall out!
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!
