Aliph has introduced its new Jawbone Icon Bluetooth headset. Sporting a smaller and lighter design than prior Jawbone headsets, the Icon features NoiseAssassin 2.5 noise elimination technology, new signal processing for improved inbound audio clarity, a new volume management system that eliminates the need to adjust volume from one caller to the next, the ability to display a visual battery meter in the iPhone’s status bar, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR support, up to 4.5 hours of talk time, and support for the company’s new MyTalk software customization platform, which allows users to personalize the Icon’s speaking voice, customize an easy access button for direct access to services like directory assistance, and more. The Aliph Jawbone Icon Bluetooth headset comes in six different styles and is available now for $100.

Can someone confirm that the Thinker version Verizon has is a dark black color, and not the silver color shown on Jawbone’s website?

Can someone tell my why this thing is even considered “fashionable”?  This thing is butt ugly IMHO!

Until iLounge reviews this item, here’s my take: (1) Controls are easy; on-iPhone battery gauge and on-board volume leveling are awesome. (2) Audio is good, very clear, though it could use a little more bass. (3) Finally, a conventional charging port! Too bad the charging cable is all of 3” long. (4) The included eartips are WORTHLESS and kill the whole deal. They fail to hold the unit in your ear at all (never mind securely). Some Google sleuthing reveals this to be a common problem.

Due to #4, I exchanged my Jawbone for a Plantronics Discovery 975. MUCH better fit, better styling, and novel carrying case. The controls and audio need some work but they are acceptable.
