Good.....not great for the money.

alfar1973, Ebay
5 March 2014
  • Summary: The sound quality is good not great. The connectivity is easy but sometimes gives issues with the media (using with a note the). Battery life is terrible and it seems that it's just an old battery and refurbished Bluetooth but for 40.00 bucks not bad.

Excellent headset but good luck getting a secure fitting.

evspad816, Ebay
10 February 2014
  • Summary: The headset itself works very well, however, the ear buds and the single ear loop (hereafter called ear hook) leave much to be desired. Jawbone recently restyled their ear bud on the NEW ERA but I was advised that the new ear bud will not fit the older ERA. So, beware - you may have trouble getting an ear bud and/or the single furnished ear hook to fit properly or securely.

Great sound in, lousy sound out

npossas, CNET
11 June 2013
  • Summary: So I've stuck with this earpiece for over a year but I'm finally going to jump ship. I've complained about the audio-out quality to Jawbone, they've replaced the earpiece three times and the problem is the same so I guess it's the unit. It's a shame too b/c the unit is light, small and the audio-in is awesome. But if the people I call either can't hear or understand me because I sound like I'm under water, then I guess the unit just isn't all it's cracked up to be!
  • Pros: Great sound on my end. I can hear the caller clearly and although others have complained, I find it very comfortable. I
  • Cons: Almost all of my callers complain that I sound like I'm under water.

Not good as the editor review

specimen400, CNET
30 May 2013
  • Summary: I buy this product because of the very good review from the editor and the editor choice. I feel very disappoint when I use this product. My last 4 bluetooth headset Jabra extreme 2, Plantronics extreme 2, Plantronics Marque 2, Plantronics M1100 (the best one)
  • Pros: Double tap, good look
  • Cons: Battery life is not follow up the spec, Sometime the people from another end complain to noisy, Sometime volume too low in noisy place, None of 8 piece of ear plug fit to the ear, Some bristly noise in ear most of the time, Sometimes not send to bluetooth

Neat technology; defect prone

alapon77, CNET
23 February 2012
  • Summary: For the record, I only bought refurbished (x3). The first two I bought were defective and didn't work at all. With regard to the muffled outgoing audio, I understand this is a problem with other users, according to their posts on the manufacturer's web site and there doesn't seem to be a fix except to have it exchanged.
  • Pros: Like the iridescence; sweet design, comfort is good; excellent earbud selection; easy to pair; easy to update; accelerometer works pretty well; great packaging; clear sound.
  • Cons: This may not be with everyone's as it is with mine, but when people hear me talking on it, my voice sounds muffled to them like I'm talking into my cupped hand. Frequent sound delay and crackle from PC audio A2DP but it could be my Bluetooth dongle.

In general I'm unable to use my My Jawbone ERA.

jllantin, CNET
22 January 2012
  • Summary: Let me start by saying that I have and will always continue to be a huge Jawbone fan. This is my third unit. But I have an iPhone4S, and there are known yet unresolved issues with that headset and the iPhone4S. When I talk the other party can't hear me because the sound is jerky.
  • Pros: Noise assassin is great, I like the Mytalk concept and the ability to customize the voices and add names into the address book, it also has a great length of the battery life. Great internet features through Jawbone web page.
  • Cons: I have an iPhone4S, and there are known unresolved issues with that headset and the iPhone4S. When I talk, the other party can't hear me because the sound is jerky.

No extra ear gels and ear pods

A****H, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: It is hard to fit in your ear if you have only one size of ear gel., i just got one piece of ear gel with this product which don't fit in my ear. Voice quality is good. Battery life is very short like 3 hours for talk time because it is a used product.

Low battery life

spkh, Amazon
29 December 2013
  • Summary: Its got the looks and the clarity. Its easy to use as well but it lacks the chatter time. I can't chat on my earpiece for more than an hour. I gotta keep charging it. I dont know if its my piece or in general. Wish it had a longer battery life.

Jawbone Era vs Plantronics Voyager Pro HD

S. Kwan, Amazon
3 December 2011
  • Summary: In a nutshell, neither of them are perfect. To test the mic and noise cancelling ability, I tested both headsets by recording my voice into the same phone using the same program under 3 circumstances: at home, on the street corner of Yonge and Dundas, and in Eaton Center. Looks: Era wins Fanciness aside, the Era wins in compactness. I like to put the headset into a pocket in my jacket or bag.
