Top customer reviews
- Small, lightweight.
- Appealing styling.
- Physical buttons for power, volume, placing and answering calls.
- Uneventful pairing.
- Excellent volume and clarity for incoming audio.
- Good clarity on outgoing audio.
- A2DP support.
- Reversible ear gel.
- Can charge from USB port, mains wall wart, or car cigarette adapter (all included).
- You can hug someone while wearing it.
- Slight size mismatch on ear gel; my ear can start getting annoyed after about half an hour, depending.
- Outgoing sound is reported to occasionally break up (though still an improvement over its predecessor).
- "Battery Low" voice prompts a bit over-insistent.
- Takes rather a long while to charge.
My Plantronics Voyager PRO had finally caused me one headache too many, and I started looking around for a replacement. While the PRO's behavior was annoying, I still liked its physical characteristics, and sought something similar. I wanted something that would fit in a vest pocket, with good sound quality, that looked interesting, didn't attempt voice recognition (i.e. had physical push-button controls), wasn't terribly expensive, and was an over-the-ear type rather than a shove-it-in-your-ear-canal-and-hope-it-doesn't-fall-out type.
With some admitted uncertainty, I ordered the Jabra WAVE. At time of writing, I've owned the WAVE for about two weeks, and so far am quite pleased with it.
The un-boxing experience was uneventful. One memorable aspect was that the WAVE was secured via easily unhooked rubber bands, rather than twist-ties. All the accessories -- power, cabling, alternate ear gel, wind socks, instruction manuals -- are contained in the package's lower box.
The WAVE was recognized by and paired with my Samsung Galaxy Nexus without difficulty, and the UI noises from the Nexus were immediately audible through the WAVE. However, I never use A2DP (eats batteries), so I turned it off on the Nexus.
The WAVE does have a voice command feature to place and answer calls. Since I talk to myself all the time, this is something I wanted to avoid. Happily, the feature can be turned off.
After fumbling it into my ear for the first time (a process that will doubtless improve with practice), it was clear right away the WAVE is an impovement over the Voyager PRO, in that it has an actual power switch. Not a multifunction button; a dedicated toggle switch at the top of the main housing. This means you can, by simply reaching up to feel it, know whether the WAVE is turned on or not. Many has been the time I wished I could know that with the PRO without pushing a button to see if it beeped (and then cancel the action I just triggered).
I'm an infrequent user of Bluetooth earpieces (mostly when I'm driving), so it took almost two weeks before I received the "Battery low" voice warning. This warning is repeated roughly every ten minutes, which in practice seems a little too frequent. I don't yet know if the warning prompt talks over a phone call in progress. I recharged the WAVE using my laptop's USB port. This took approximately three hours, which seemed a bit long to me.
The WAVE is very light, and uses your entire ear to stay in place. So far, it's only unintentionally come off once, and that was under duress. I wear glasses all the time, so they and the earpiece compete for space. If you don't have a problem with the Voyager PRO, you won't with the WAVE, either. For me, its most noticeable drawback is that the ear gel doesn't quite line up on my ear canal, and presses a bit on one side of it. If I can't nudge it around to not do this, my ear starts to complain after about half an hour. When I do get it to line up, I forget it's there.
Because it's so unobtrusive, I discovered another unexpected win the other day when I went to hug my sweetie while I still had the WAVE in my ear. With the Voyager PRO, the multifunction button would often get pressed against her temple, and the earpiece jammed deeper into my ear. Unpleasant for both of us -- the exact opposite of the purpose of a hug. With the WAVE, both of us barely noticed it was still there.
Overall, I'd call it a winner, and am pleased to have it.
Now going back to Amazon and searching Jabra Wave+ I have noticed that none of the Jabra Wave units indicate if you are getting the Wave or the Wave+ unit so it will be just luck if you get the Wave+. I did a search on Ebay and found that the sellers are giving full information on the units, if it streams music then the description indicates it will, if not it does not say streams music. Amazon could help the customers by providing more information on the models being sold. I am keeping this unit as a backup only because the sound quality is very clear.
I would have returned it but the unit work's well just not as great as these reviews. As I said large ears and space between rejoice as it is a good product, for the rest of us good luck.
Well, I have used this device for 14 months and the connecting rubber piece that goes from the ear to the base is now tearing, Really? It works but the rubber has worn. Not only is it uncomfortable it is also poor quality. I would recommend purchasing a different device. I would have hoped for the price that it would have lasted longer than 14 months. I guess I now know what company products NOT to buy.
After 30 days. It could be my provider but I am getting callers say they are having problems hearing on this Bluetooth. I often leave myself voicemails just to check the quality and more often than not it sounds awful. I reduced the review to 2 stars as this unit is just not effective. It has moments where is sounds great and others it has the same quality as other Bluetooth devices. So for comfort I would give this unit 1 star, for quality I think it deserves a 3 star rating. I was really hoping for a stellar product by all the reviews, I was shockingly disappointed.
SOOOOO, I decided to buy one for myself, No problem right? WRONG, I have received the OLD version with a VERIZON box. This product in the Verizon box is for phone calls ONLY. NO MUSIC, NO GPS, NO SPEAK TO TEXT. Have returned it 2 times and decided to up my complaint to JABRA directly. Amazon has no interest in correcting the problem and the Customer Service Support staff are in India so what good is it to complain to them? They just apologize and offer me my money back. VERY DISAPPOINTED, and I have to say this is the first time I have ever been disappointed with Amazon.
