"Best Headset Ever"on by nine11c2
Pros Good volume, good noise cancellation, fits in my ear withtout loop, excellent fit and clarity, caller id, will voice dial with my Blackberry, good software support.
Cons Two piece ear loop is cheap - comes off device and apart between clip and loop, no mute, no separate volume. All minor issue.
Sound on some calls a bit tinny.
Summary The best headset ever. I thought I lost my Plantronics Voyager Pro so ordered one of these. I now have both, found the Voyager, but leave that home. This is smaller, the large ear gel fits in my ear without a loop (only one EVER to do this). Great volume - use my bberry on about half volume with it. Great mic - no one has ever complained that they can't hear me. Great fit - light. Love that it does caller ID. I'd like to have a dedicated volume button and a headset mute (sometimes I like to be able to walk away from phone and turn off mute as I walk out of a room so no one knows I've picked up a call).
Pros Fit out of the box. Very light and easy to wear.
Cons No volume rocker/switch
Summary I had a BlueAnt T1 for a few months that went intermittent. When I replaced it with another T1, that one kept dropping calls and reconnecting to the iPhone. Went back to Best Buy and talked to the cellular manager who got three of his staff together and they went over the pros and cons of several of the models with me. All agreed that the JB Icon and the BlueAnt T1 were probably the best for me, but all four felt that the Icon had better connection to the iPhone. It's been only two days but the Icon feels good and has not dropped a call or disconnected/reconnected to my iPhone except when I have powered down and back up.
I would like to have a volume switch and longer battery life, but I can live with comfort and quiet.
Pros Battery Life! (4 hour talk time on one charge, my phone dies first.)
Clarity and range. I get a true 10 meters from this headset.
Noise cancellation is second to none. I can drive with the windows down and still be heard.
Will support A2DP audio.
Cons None, there are several ear covers and a retention loop. I'm a bit in between the sizes but it works well!
Summary Great product! Well worth the money. I have owned 5 bluetooth headsets. I purchased and returned 3 before I found this one!
Coustom loadable voices from the icon website are cool too!
Pros Easy to use, great noise cancellation, comfortable, good volume for most situations, useful voice apps.
Cons No on-set volume control, max volume not as loud as could be.
Summary I got this as a Christmas present in 2010.
I really like the "Noise Assassin" for fighting wind noise. I've owned two other BT devices and this one just blows them out of the water for noise cancellation. I've driven a convertible at 70 mph and was able to be understood just fine. By comparison a Blue Ant V1 would get washed out during a brisk walk. The piece is comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Never did my ear get fatigued or sore from using it. Often times I found myself reaching just to make sure it was still there. I had completely forgotten about it. The volume is a fine level for most things you do. If I need it louder I can adjust it on my phone. But for all but the noisiest situations, it's serviceable. I admit that I haven't gone through the trouble to install any of the apps on it. However I think they are useful, especially for those without smart phones with GPS, also the voice-to-text app seems really nice. I'd like to try that as I really don't feel comfortable driving and texting so that leads to a long time before I get to some messages.
I do not like that there's no volume control on the piece itself. I can control volume from my phone's volume switch, but I feel that defeats some of the purpose of having a BT. The maximum volume level is a little low sometimes. The commercial with the girl in the dune-buggy shows her talking, not listening. We could hear her, but there would have been no way for her to hear someone talking to her. That said, it does very well in most situations. I just feel that when I drive with the top down, I should be able to hear the other party as well as they can hear me.
Pros LOVE the shape, size, ergonomics, loud/clear sound; improved micro USB charging cable; battery life indicator on cell phone is a fantastic idea!; on/off switch; this model blows away all previous Jawbones. They've fixed many flaws of the previous.
Cons Not much I can say...
Summary I have owned every Jawbone and several other brand Bluetooth headsets. This blows away anything I've used in the past.
