"NOT user friendly, Who came up with these buttons?"0.5 starson by HVAC_maniac
Pros: Sounds good. Looks Good.
Cons: Fashion was apparantly priority over function. Not user friendly at all due to this crazy button approach.
Summary: I'm all for fashion and style but not when it sacrifices function and user friendliness.
Whomever designed this crazy button schemed must have just wanted to look at the Jawbone Prime, and not actually use it all day. Hiding and minimizing the buttons may make it look more fashionable, but if that's my priority I will start wearing earrings. I need something that makes phone calls easier and more user friendly.
You have to feel around for the main button to push instead of just a quick click. I t does have a bit of a impression there to help but it is still not near as good as a nice easy to push button would be. Meanwhile the process pops it out from your ear and you have to reposition.
Also having one obscure volume button just cycle through all the levels is equally crazy. Just put an up and down button on there so you can raise the volume if its too low or lower it if its too high.
I don't think Calvin Klein or whoever designed this thing has to use headsets all day long.
Call Quality was good so I have to give them that. However I think that others are closing this gap so my advice to Jawbone is to start worrying about user friendliness now.
I'm returning this one and going to try either the BlueAnt Q1 and Plantronics Voyager Pro, or maybe the Sound ID as well and keep which ever does the best.
Will report if I find a winner.
