"Good with a few tweaks"4.0 starson by TeaHee
Pros: Great sound quality and noise cancellation.
Far better design than previous models.
Custom voices and applications.
Micro USB charging (I can charge my Icon and my phone with the same adapter - yay!)
Cons: Fit - none of the standard attachments provide me with a secure fit.
Summary: With the correct fit, the noise cancelling is second to none. Getting a good fit can be a bit frustrating though. For me, none of the out of the box accessories worked well, and I tried them all. I concluded that I have odd ears, or at least ears that weren't designed for any of the attachments as I ended up either stuffing it into my ear canal and using the over ear hook (which didn't work as the hook now has a pivot so you can't lodge it into place as with the JB2) or using the ear bud with a little loop. Neither setup provided a secure fit and I was feeling a bit disheartened.
Luckily I had some Jabra gels lying about. I'd never managed to get them to work but gave them another try. Glad I did - the fit with these gels is amazing. Aliph should seriously consider packaging something like this as standard. Fits securely and comfortably.
Now the only problem I have is battery life. 4 hours is too short - I would like to see 8 hours as a minimum. That gives you a full day of talk (yes it happens) or the chance to make a few calls one day and to forget to charge it and not be in trouble the next.
Other features are great. Good to be able to hear an approximation of how much talk time remains. Good also to be able to load different apps and stream music, podcasts etc - but again if you are doing that a lot you'll quickly eat up your battery.
