I have been buying Aliph Jawbone bluetooth headsets to use with my smartphones for years now. They are simply the best with regards to noise reduction. This is a couple of steps up from my last jawbone and I am VERY IMPRESSED! I love the design and the sound quality of incoming voice and outgoing is exceptional.

not that great

by A customer on 11/10/2010

while I hear others well, people who I call say that the sound quality is not great, especially compared to the Plantronics explorer pro that I used to have. The plantronics shape caused the speaker boom to snap, which is why I went with the jawbone. Oh well, can't have everything, at least not with these two items. Jawbone seems to need more charges too.

Product Overview

Jawbone PRIME uses an algorithm that digitally fuses together the best audio from its two electret microphone (the clean preserved high-end frequencies of speech) and its patented Voice Activity Sensor (the low-end frequencies of speech) to create a single, natural sounding speech signal.

JAWBONE PRIME HIGHLIGHTS: THE BEST AUDIO EVER

Jawbone PRIME uses an algorithm that digitally fuses together the best audio from its two electret microphones (the clean preserved high-end frequencies of speech) and its patented Voice Activity Sensor (the low-end frequencies of speech) to create a single, natural sounding speech signal.

The industry-standard microphone approach used by most headset companies fails as the microphones become saturated with wind noise distorting the low-end frequencies of speech (as noticed when you blow over a soda-bottle). By leveraging some innovative DSP techniques and Jawbone's proprietary Voice Activity Sensor (VAS) to reconstruct the missing speech they have managed to implement a wind solution that maintains their award-winning design without having to apply a visually disruptive wind-sock or baffle to physically block the wind.

Jawbone PRIME also has a subtle wind feedback mechanism built into the headset that gently alerts you when voice clarity is compromised due to wind gusts so the user can self-correct. While Jawbone PRIME does not completely remove the impact of wind, it does more than any other headset to remove wind and alert the user to the fact that wind may be affecting the conversation. This is the beginning of Jawbone's journey toward silencing wind.

The design

Great technology is not enough: the Jawbone brand is built upon technological innovation with a design that integrates seamlessly into the user's lifestyle by providing comfort, customized fit and personal preference, and great, iconic aesthetics.

The design effort at Jawbone is a constant refinement exercise, and PRIME is the latest iteration in a continuum of celebrated category defining products. The Jawbone products always call attention through minimalism, by removing the extraneous, rather than adding visual complexity and clutter.

For PRIME, we are introducing a unique undulating texture, crafted with high precision in 3-D to reflect the light, and give a sense of movement to the exterior surfaces. Like fashion brands that weave unique textiles, our craft is this high level of sculpting in high-grade plastic. It is the attention to the materiality, to the surface, to the way it reflects light and color that enhances the inherent value of the product-adding quality to quality, and building-in layers of detail and meaning.

Functionally, the design has also been enhanced by a slight indication in the shield's texture, a small tactile crease that indicates where the switch is located. The inside contours of the product follow your face in a perfectly comfortable manner, while new ergonomic earbuds have been refined to keep the Jawbone in place without an earloop for most wearers.

"EARCANDY is our summer color burst, to bring self-expression and a smile to our line-up. The 4 colors represent great skin-tone complements and contrast, as well as personal style one cannot resist, this reinforces the basic notion that anything that the consumer wears makes a statement, and it should be designed as such...this is what we call EARCANDY." Yves Behar, Chief Designer
