The Voice Activity Sensor (VAS) on the interior curve of the Jawbone PRIME.
The Science Behind Jawbone PRIMEOriginally developed for use in tanks and helicopters, Jawbone PRIME's NoiseAssassin is a proprietary technology that eliminates background noise from mobile phone conversations. Jawbone is the only Bluetooth headset with a Voice Activity Sensor (VAS) that actually feels your speech, which helps Jawbone distinguish your voice from background noise. The NoiseAssassin 2.0 technology embedded in the PRIME delivers an order of magnitude improvement in the noisiest environments (6 to 9dB) extracting even more noise while keeping the user's voice natural.
The Acoustic Voice Activity Detector (AVAD) provides a fail-safe mechanism when the Voice Activity Sensor (VAS) doesn't touch your face. When the VAS is not touching the face, Jawbone PRIME performs as good as or better than any other noise-cancelling headset. When the VAS touches the face, you get the turbo-boost to the NoiseAssassin performance.

JAWBONE-1 was the best sounding to everyone I talked to which is what I was concerned with. It was way too heavy and awkward to use. Frankly, it looked clunky. The ear fit caused more "fits" than anything else, utterly frustrating.
JAWBONE-2 was a big improvement in weight comfort but STILL would not fit right for most everyone. The earloops where prone to break because you would constantly be "adjusting" it. Many times it would just fall out and hang on your ear. This caused the "jawbone" sensor to not make contact with your skin rendering this device basically worse than any other bluetooth headset. The volume was NEVER quite enough and the touch controls were so "touchy" you would almost always cut off your own call.
JAWBONE-PRIME - Great example of a company listening to the users. NO Earhook Required, REALLY! They took the approach of the Plantronics Discovery ear gel, and it will fit ANYONE'S EAR!!. At first you almost can't believe it will stay in without a hook but it absolutely does.
YOU CAN ADD THE EAR LOOP AND IT'S STILL COMFORTABLE, but, in reality, not needed except maybe for a confidence factor. If you're in a really rough environment on a job site then maybe the hook would add this.
It is SO light I suppose it could fall out of your ear and you might not notice that it feel out. The hook may help in that scenario.
Looks SO MUCH BETTER when on. - At least people don't look at you like you have an big cockroach hanging out of your ear like so many other headphones.Read more ›
-Once you determine which earbud fits you best, then you will have no problem with the unit falling out of your ear. I can walk, jog, and even bend over and shake my head and the thing still stays in place, without an ear hook. It is super light and decently comfortable. I've worn it for 3 hours straight without discomfort. I haven't used it with the ear hook, so I can't comment on that...
-The volume is great. I've had a problem with bluetooth headsets not being loud enough, since I drive a diesel truck. You can literally turn the volume up until it hurts your ear. It by far has the capability of being louder than any unit I have ever used.
-The noise cancellation works good. When testing it, I actually revved my diesel with the window down and the unit on that side of my head. The person on the other end of the call could barely hear anything other than my voice.
-There was no noticeable wind noise when I tested it in a steady breeze.
-I have been told by everyone that I've spoken to that the clarity of my voice is better with this unit than when using the phone without it. (Motorola Q).
-It looks good =)
-It doesn't come with a car charger (although that's pretty standard now days)
-It has a special charger that only works with it.
-There is still a little distortion in how people sound on my end. They are plenty loud enough, and I can understand them, but it's still there. Now, to be fair to the Jawbone Prime, it could be my phone, since it's the same distortion that I've noticed with all earpieces that I've tried.
Even with those negatives, it's still by far the best earpiece that I've ever used.
I just got this today and I love it! The fit is perfect because of the variety of earpieces you have to choose from. I found the exact fit using the smallest earpiece with the little stabilizer loop. I don't have to use the earloop (thank goodness) - that was one thing that prevented me from trying the older version of the Jawbone. The Jawbone is so light that you can't really feel that you have it on. The NoiseAssassin works wonderfully. I made several calls today (to friends and to my voice mail) and the NoiseAssassin cancels out pretty much all of the ambient noise. And the people at the other end said that I sounded very clear.
Couple of little things that will take some getting used to: (1)utilizing the hidden button or dimple (on/off, pairing) on the side and the button on the top (last number redial, volume, NoiseAssassin cancellation, call reject). Since it's hidden for aesthetic reasons, it's a little hard to find at first. Once you get used to where it is, it's not a problem; (2)determining what mode the earpiece is in (on or off) since the little LED light is so small and kind of hidden when you press on the side button/dimple. This is minor and just something to learn.
Even with these two minor issues, I still give the Jawbone Prime 5 stars for call quality (especially the NoiseAssassin), style/workmanship, and ease of use. I will be returning my Plantronics 925. I wrote a review on this earpiece and will have to modify it after this.
