Jawbone Jbf02 Era Bluetooth Headset (Midnight)
From the Manufacturer
The Jawbone ERA is the only Bluetooth headset equipped with military-grade NoiseAssassin 3.0, the latest version of Jawbone's industry-first noise and wind canceling technology. Originally developed for use by tank commanders and helicopter pilots, NoiseAssassin 3.0 eliminates background noise better than any other headset. It also auto-adjusts inbound call volume and intelligibility to your environment. Whether you're at a noisy ball game or on the road, you'll always hear and be heard.
Listen in HD
Music, video and calls never sounded better. With its 10mm wideband speaker--our biggest, most powerful speaker yet (25 percent larger than previous models)--podcasts, Pandora tunes, YouTube videos, driving directions and more come vibrantly to life in full-spectrum, HD-quality sound. Jawbone ERA is also the most convenient way to enjoy all your mobile media and calls in one place. No more clunky headphones, no more tangled cords. You'll be totally hands-free and never miss a beat.
Magical Motion Controls
Jawbone ERA is the first headset with a built-in accelerometer and patented MotionX technology. Out of the box, you can ShakeShake Jawbone ERA into pairing mode or TapTap to answer phone calls. And because Jawbone ERA is completely integrated with the online MyTALK platform, it will continue to gain functionality as we develop new motion applications. ShakeShake and TapTap is just the beginning.
Get Apps and Updates at MyTALK
Like all Jawbone products, Jawbone ERA gets better with time when synced with Jawbone's industry-first MyTALK platform. Download apps, customize new features like Caller ID by Name (exclusive to Jawbone ERA), set different voices or language options, even program Jawbone ERA to send e-mails and text messages using your voice. Just sign into mytalk.jawbone.com, plug in your headset, and sync whatever apps and updates you want. Make it yours at MyTALK.
THOUGHTS: Free Voice Communication Service for Utility and Productivity for iPhone
Jawbone THOUGHTS is the first and only free iPhone app for your headset that lets you send voice messages to friends and groups without typing or calling. It is a new productivity and utility tool for headsets that combines the speed of texting, the group collaboration of e-mail, and the rich intonation of voice all into one. THOUGHTS can be found under "Jawbone" in the iPhone App Store.
Keep Tabs on Battery Life
You'll never run out of juice with Jawbone ERA. To check battery status, glance at the battery meter that automatically displays in the status bar of your iPhone (BlackBerry and others available at MyTALK). Or, if your phone is out of reach, just press the TALK button on Jawbone ERA to hear an update: "About 5 hours of talk time remaining."
Or just do nothing: when your battery is running low, you'll hear a reminder to charge up whispered in your ear. Jawbone ERA rechargeable lithium-ion now holds an additional hour of battery life--up to 5.5 hours of continuous use.
It's All in the Details
Every Jawbone ERA comes with eight earbuds and an optional binaural earloop, ensuring the perfect fit either ear, no matter what your size. It's so light and comfortable, you'll probably forget you're even wearing it. Jawbone ERA also includes Jawbone's innovative Spout earbud, a breakthrough design that channels audio directly into your ear, providing the clearest sound.
Jawbone ERA's beauty is more than skin-deep. With its layered, architectural surface exterior and faceted body, Jawbone ERA's sophisticated form reflects the advanced technology within. Available in four striking designs.

Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I know the phone touts all this tap tap shake shake stuff, which is neat, but I just use it the regular old fashioned way.
As for call quality, its outstanding. The phone is light and fits snug and comfortably with the jabra ear gel inserts I bought for the ICON but also fit perfect on the ERA. I do not like any of the custom earpieces it comes with.
The reason I wrote the review is because of the conditions I put this thing through. I drive the UPS truck, with an obnoxiously loud diesel engine roaring under my nose, and both doors are open so you can imagine the wind noise, and the ERA handles it like a champ. Its loud and clear on my end, and everyone I call says its sounds good on their end. Its a grand slam!!
Enter the Era, and at last, Jawbone has reached perfection (almost). Most on-line reviews will gush over Jawbone's ability to pack a larger, fuller-spectrum speaker into the same-size housing, and it's true: it is louder, and voices sound more natural, now that they have the "warmth" lacking from the Icon. What they don't tell you is that the eartips are much improved. First, there are four of them now, not just three; what was the Icon's largest one, is now the second-largest packed in the Era's box. Interestingly, the second-largest eartip for the Era is also slightly larger than the Icon's largest, leading to - at last! - a stable, secure fit. One that also remains fairly comfortable for extended periods of time.
One will also read much about the built-in accelerometer. While it seems a bit gimicky, I have to admit, the "tap-tap" to answer and end calls is actually pretty slick. I can't wait to see what other control-ability Jawbone will devise for the Era in time.
Which is one more point you don't find in on-line reviews: through Jawbone's MyTalk site, not only do the Voices and DialApps continue from the Icon, but you can now adjust nearly a dozen of the Era's settings there, too. For example, I disabled the "double shake-shake" pairing function (still accessible via the multifunction button), and changed the button-hold behavior from volume adjustment to Noise Assassin dis-/en-abling. Very cool.
There are just two issues, both minor and not nearly worth the loss of 1 star. An extremely minor nit is the eartip design. I don't understand why no one uses the excellent design of the Plantronics Discovery 640 or Jabra EarGels, which fit more easily, naturally, and comfortably, and guarantee the proper pointing of the headset at the user's mouth. The other issue is Jawbone's insistence on including only one stupidly short USB charging cable. Yes, you can use your own USB/micro-USB one, or buy Jawbone's $15 "cable kit" (which includes a 5' cable and an additional 3" one). But given the $130 price tag and the inclusion of an A/C wall charger (aren't most outlets on or near the floor?), why not include the 5' cable as well?
The best headset I ever had to this point was the Jabra JX10, but now it is second-best - by a long shot - to the Jawbone Era. The fun starts with the very cool and eco-friendly box, and goes from there.
PS: My phone is an iPhone 3GS, for those that may be wondering, and both mono and stereo sound work flawlessly
After I downloaded the iPhone app and the updater for my computer, I couldn't get it to recognize the headset. After a while I called Jawbone and after being on hold for a few minutes, I was told that as of May 1, Jawbone only supports the latest version of the ERA headset.
That totally stinks, but think about this. If they only support the newest version, what happens to all the people that have that version when a newer version comes out? They are left out in the cold because Jawbone only supports the newest version.
It's pretty much a marketing flub to cut support for previously purchased products. What kind of company does that? Do you want to do business with a company that only supports their latest releases? I don't.
I am returning this product to Amazon and will never buy any Jawbone headsets, speakers, or UP. How can a company not support products it recently sold?
