"Excellent style but fails at noise-reduction"2.5 starson by Road_Warrior
Pros: Excellent style and comfortable fit. Easy to use with main on/off and volume/mute buttons. The extended battery case is also much appreciated and easy to carry, offering a portable charging station for those constantly on the go.
Cons: The headset fails at noise reduction/processing. Under quiet conditions, the reception and sound quality of both receiver and speaker is fine. But those on the other end complain of ambient and wind (e.g., common outdoor conditions) noise.
Summary: I upgraded from a first-generation Jawbone thinking that the Plantronics brand and reputation for this new device would fulfill some of the Jawbone's shortcomings. Unfortunately, the first-gen still outperforms the 975 with superior noise-reduction features---an absolute must for those that travel a lot and must chat in busy airports. I was excited to receive this 975 headset today but I must also return it for a full-refund. I will likely choose Aliph's latest Jawbone product.
Thanks for your submission!
