Depending where you are, the laws may dictate that you cannot use a handheld mobile phone, forcing drivers to use some sort of handsfree solution. There are several cars these days that come with built-in Bluetooth functionality, but not all of us have these kinds of cars and we may need to have our hands free at other times as well. For times like those, a Bluetooth headset is absolute must-have.
There are countless units available from big boys like Motorola and Sony Ericsson. Of course, Plantronics is also up there too as we've reviewed one of their headsets (Plantronics Discovery 655) and gave it an Editors Choice. However, a little company based out of San Francisco has a headset that just might have all of them beat. You may not recognize the Aliph name, but you've surely heard about their Jawbone Bluetooth headset. After using the headset for a couple of days, I'm inclined to say that the Jawbone is the best Bluetooth headset I have ever used. Yes, ever.
Look At All 'Dem Accessories!
Aliph wanted to ensure that you have the absolute most comfortable fit with their Jawbone headset, so the product comes packaged with no fewer than four ear loops and four ear buds. There's also a USB charging cable, an adapter to plug the charging cable into a regular wall outlet, an instruction manual, and a handy pouch.
Of the ear loops, there are two for each ear: one is slightly wider than the other. I found the bigger right ear loop to be the most comfortable. I should also note that each ear loop has a rubber band-like mechanism for a secure fit. Wearing the Jawbone, you'll find that it's not flimsy at all, no matter how much you shake your head.
The rubber ear buds also come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but I opted for a regular old circle for the best comfort. There are a couple that are designed to fit the inner contour of your ear canal, but I found these to be too "pokey", so to speak.
Jawbone Earwear Eliminates Noise
Having all these accessories does you no good if the headset doesn't work the way it's supposed to. If you ask anyone at Aliph about the single greatest feature that sets the Jawbone apart from the competition, they'll likely cite the noise elimination technology developed for DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency).
