Aliph intros new Jawbone Bluetooth Headset

Aliph has introduced its new Jawbone Bluetooth Headset, the first substantial update to its award-winning original Jawbone. The new Jawbone is 50 percent smaller than the original, and like its predecessor it features military-grade noise elimination technology called NoiseAssassin. According to Aliph, the technology, originally developed for DARPA, provides the Jawbone with ten times the voice clarity of competing headsets. Other features of the new Jawbone include touch controls, a textured shield inspired by noise abatement surfaces, faster processing to help eliminate noise bursts, and a new fast-charge battery that charges up to 80 percent capacity in just over half an hour. The new headset weighs 10 grams, provides over four hours of talk time and over eight days of standby time, supports Bluetooth 1.1, 1.2, and 2.0, and includes three differently-sized earbuds, four earhoops (two leather, two slim), and a magnetic USB cable and wall charger. The new Aliph Jawbone Bluetooth Headset is available now in matte black and will soon be available in silver and rose gold, and sells for $130.

They should have kept the old Jawbone’s simpler, less garish looks. Aliph must be trying to add the “bling-bling” generation to its customer base.

I’m also disappointed that this still needs an earhook. In-ear, hookless headsets offer far superior volume (a problem on the previous Jawbone), comfort (especially if you wear glasses), and ease of fitment.

Pass. Too bad the Inivisio Q7 became vaporware.

the earhook is optional, and i think this one looks better than the previous.
