A light and small headset, rather light only 0.2oz and about 2 inches long. It is a bluetooth accessory to your phone with 4 hour talk time. It comes with a charging case that extends the talk time to 20 hours. It is made to reduce background noise for best performance. Jawbone Era also includes a locator where with your app you can always locate it, it sens a signal for a sound which helps you find your unit. The app also has controls for music from your phone or other resources and also connects you to help and guide book for using the product. The sound is pretty clear and the unit is rather comfortable to wear unlike most earphones these days which claim they fit snugly in your ear this one actually does. Its wireless bluetooth range is within 33 feet of the phone which gives you a lot of freedom to move around.
It supports the following profiles:
HFP 1.6 A2DP 1.2 AVRCP 1.4 HSP 1.2 SPP
Other features include: Single multi-function button; answer, end, reject, swap, last number redial, voice dial, music play and pause
To my surprise it fits rather comfortably and set up is really easy it announces how much talk time you have when you turn it on and it connects. It comes with different ear fittings for best comfort and depending if you want to wear it in your right or left ear. It works with all mobile devices and its low profile and nice design makes it rather comfortable and good looking piece of hardware for everyday use.
It has a military grade noise reduction system called NoiseAssassin® makes all your conversation legible even in crowds and where there is a lot of ambient noise. And you can use it for more than just phone conversations, by different taps on the button you have different controls, you can communicate with Siri on iphone and listen to music or podcasts no matter how busy you are with your hands.
The four hour talk time is plenty and if you choose to get the charging case then you'll have 10 hours of time which is plenty. It has a nice high tech look and comes in selection of colors to match your taste: Black, Silver, Red, Bronze. Also you can choose the color of the charging case silver or black. The package also contains a micro usb cable.
I usually don't like earphones since they are uncomfortable and keep falling out but this one has worked beautifully highly recommend it.
None so far!
