"Fantastic features and first one to ever fit!"5.0 starson by larry619
Pros: Amazing voice recognition; innovative new earpiece fitting system
Cons: None I can find.
Summary: I've owned a lot of bluetooth headsets over the years, and all of them are laying around the house gathering dust. They all suffered from the same problem, they wouldn't stay on my ear. When Cnet gave the new Jawbone 2 an editor's choice a few months back, I even ran out and bought that one. But like all the others, within 5 minutes of putting it on, it was flapping around on my head like a duck wing.
I used to think that my ears were just incredibly odd, but if you look at the user reviews for the Jawbone 2, a lot of people had the same problem, poor fit. What's the use of a headset that you have to hold against your ear all the time. It seemed a lot of manufacturers cared all about the circuitry, but not about the human ear.
UNTIL NOW! Even BlueAnt took a while to get it right, because I've got an old Z9 around here that didn't fit. But the V1 is AMAZING! I won't go into the fantastic voice recognition because everyone is talking about that. It is fantastic, but for me, I feel so good having an earpiece that stays in my ear that it could have come without incredible voice recognition and I'd still love this thing.
It's hard to describe, but if you are the type for whom a headset always fits, this one has the traditional gel pieces that should work fine for you, and you'll love the features of the headset. If you are one of those unlucky people that has always had fit problems like me, BlueAnt found the solution in a replacement piece that fits on the ear side of the headset and inserts slightly into the ear canal. Think of one of those soft memory foam earplugs that you squeeze down, insert into the ear and let expand. That's the kind of thing you can attach on the headset, so that when you put it in your ear, it will expand to the opening of your ear and hold there.
To be fair, it gets a little uncomfortable with the thing inserted in your ear all day, but just a little bit. And the benefit of having a headset that doesn't feel like it is ready to fly off is worth just a minor discomfort to me.
In short, there simply is not a more flexible fitting headset with so many voice activated features out there, but I'll bet everybody will be rushing to copy this style. Thank you, thank you, thank you BlueAnt.
