So what i've been trying to find out about these is do you have to use the dorky over the ear thing or will it sit in your ear like newer model earpieces do?

You need the dorky ear hook.

The noise cancelling is on by default.

Your local AT&T store will sell you a grey Jawbone.

I love my Jawbone headset, but I can't find a fit with any of the hook + ear bud combinations that is very secure. I'm now going to get a custom ear mold that will allow me to use Jawbone without the ear hook and fit nice and securely. The noise cancellation is very good, and I'd say it's the best headset I've ever owned.

I love my Jawbone as well! It's the best bluetooth headset I've ever owned and the noise-cancellation technology is superb. By far the best I've ever experienced. As far as the fit goes I do think there is room for improvement but the earhook + earbud combination does fairly well.

If you want an exceptional BT Headset with Adaptive Bi-directional Noise Cancellation that really performs and offers Stereo Streaming with attachable earbuds and all that military DSP try the evoQ from Qstik - you will not be dissapointed. You can wear this for long periods and it fits well, you can also Skype. Very impressive and much better value.

I bought the black jawbone directly from jawbone. I tried as I might to get the unit to fit comfortably, as the review says, it's a pain in the rear. I love the sound, and look, but it just isn't designed well to fit on your ear comfortably, or stay in position well. Would like to see them redesign and put the sensor for your jaw behind the ear so the only thing sticking out is the mic. Next version I guess.

Jawbone......eh. Let me say I have had this product for some time now. I drive 50% of my day and work in an enviorment that is realatively noisey the other 50% of the day. Noisey I guess meaning like noise in a department store noise with over head speakers, music, people talking. While like others I was very excited by the look and the prospect of what this item could do I was somewhat disappointed by the results. I think the saying "military grade" makes people think that it is top notch but when it comes to this headsets ability to actually do so I would not make such a lofty claim. All though it does have nice noise canceling features you will not be outside on a windy day, wind over 5 mph, or driving with your windows down and expeirence the kind of noise canceling features you may think that you would from a "military grade" unit. I found that in a the car with the radio up rather loud and the air on it does make a huge difference in what the other person hears on the other end. As soon as you crack the windows though, just like any other bluetooth wireless device I have owned, it fails. Also in the same manner when I was in the "store" kind of atmosphere it did make the call much more enjoyable for the person on the other end but if you step outside and start walking around and there is wind of any kind the caller can hear it plain as day. I do want to mention that the voice quality on this unit is very very good both on the receiving and projecting ends. My wife and I made hours and hours of calls and tests in all kinds of situations and I would have to say that overall it is a good wireless headset but just do not get overly excited about what you expect from it or you will be disappointed. It has a ways to go before I would make the claim of military grade noise canceling features.
