Review: Jawbone Era Bluetooth Headset

I seem to have horrible luck with Bluetooth headsets lately. My Jawbone Icon got lost on a recent trip to the US. I’m guessing that it was lost at airport security. That required me to buy another headset. I decided to stick with the Jawbone brand and decided on the Era model. This Jawbone has 25 percent more audio output than previous models, an updated version of NoiseAssassin noise cancelling technology, an onboard processor and flash storage. It also allows you answer the phone or pair it to your phone by shaking it. All of this is slick and I have to admit that the headset performs well. It sounds good (both listening and speaking). It’s easy to use and it looks good given that you have a number of color choices to choose from. One other feature I should mention is that it has 5 hours of talk time. One hour longer than my last Jawbone. That comes in handy as I’m often on the phone a lot. Other than that, it’s a lot like the Jawbone Icon that I lost. You can check out its review here and see the features it has and copy and past them to this one.

So, here’s the bottom line. If you’re looking for a Bluetooth headset, check out the Jawbone Era. It’s a step or two up from the Jawbone Icon, but it’s well worth the money.

    But it is not BT 4.0. Those are still hard to find.

  2. I just got my hands on the Jawbone Prime actually (my first dabble into bluetooth headsets!). There aren’t too many places that sell them in the UK anymore so I went through these guys. I have to say it’s a pretty nice piece of kit. The design is pretty classy and I love the noise cancellation.

    I might upgrade to the Era at some point though, as my daughter has her eye on this one lol… I’m wondering if it really is a step up from the Prime or if I should just stick to what I know…
