"Designed for alien's ears"0.5 starson by asaffried
Pros: can't tell you
Cons: As every Jawbone I had before - seems like it was designed to fit to some alien life form...
Summary: So I got the Jawbone 2, prime and the Icon.
In each case I ended up either using the Jabra Ear gel Modification or the ear loop.
With the loop you constantly need to readjust the piece so the sensor will sit correctly.
You can't put it in your pocket - because the flimsy plastic will break
You can't keep it on your ear - because the cheap loop irritates your ear
With the looped (no hook) ear tips - I can't even get it to stay in my ear or if I use the huge one it will start to hurt after a while.
I am done paying $120 for an earpiece just to order more gels and more hooks and get annoyed.
In addition to the above it seems like every year, just around the time the new model is coming out - the old one starts failing and performance degrade.
It makes me so furious because it seems like the people at Aliph said you know what we made a good (electronically) unit so we don't really have to care about the ear tips and fitting.
The keep pushing the same junk ear tips since the original one (with minor ""improvements"") but never bothered to look in their own blog and listen to the many users that complain about the fit.
Are Bose, Sound ID, Blue Ant, Plantronics, Jabra and Motorola made on another planet?
