A good Bluetooth headset is as important as a good quality cell phone. Pair them together and it’s a match made in heaven. If you spend $300 to $500 on a cell phone. And then go out and buy a cheapo $20 headset then your cheating yourself. As a headset needs to be good or else you hear a lot of static and complaints from the receivers of the calls that they can’t hear you clearly. Now we have a solution to pair with your favorite smartphone or iPhone, and that is the new Aliph Jawbone 2 Bluetooth Headset.
Style – When I think of headsets the first thing that comes to mind is the Jawbone. It has surpassed all others in terms of quality, function and design. First there are three colors available Black, Red or silver. I chose the black version. The Jawbone is made of high quality plastics that look metallic in appearance. It is lightweight and 50% smaller than the previous model. This definitely shows and I think the Jawbone is now the perfect size. Not too small or too big but just right size. With the optional ear hook I found the fit to be quite snug and stays in place. Also included is extra earpieces in different sizes and another different size ear hook. Well-known designer Yves Behar designed the Jawbone 2 and it shows amazing design and coolness factor.
Function – The Jawbone 2 has many exciting new features. Most notably the new noise cancellation technology Noise Assassin. Noise Assassin really works and cancels out background noise much better than the previous model. Also the headset overall sound much better than the previous original Jawbone model. Aliph basically took all the good parts of the original and improved on it even more.
Conclusion – Simply put the Aliph Jawbone Bluetooth Headset is the best headset on the market. There is no comparison if want all the glamour, style, sound, fit, and performance of a top notch headset. It’s all around better than any other headset I have tested. And for the money you’re getting a lot of tech. Pair them with your high-end cell phone and you won’t be disappointed. Not only would I would recommend the Aliph Jawbone Bluetooth Headset but I think it should be the first thing you buy after buying a phone.
