Product Description

The most convenient Jawbone yet comes with an easy-to-operate On/Off slide switch and one button that provides unparalleled convenience. It also has standard micro-USB charging technology, so you don't have to carry more cables. The Simultaneous Multipoint features lets your Jawbone ICON manage two calls from two different phones at the same time. ICON is the world's first intelligent headset with the MyTalk feature that allows you to dynamically update and personalize each individual Jawbone ICON with an array of convenient apps. Custom ICON audio tones whisper important information like remaining battery life and caller ID into your ear. Finally, ICON brings the best audio around with NoiseAssassin 2.5, innovative speaker design, and Set It and Forget It audio, making the ICON the smallest and most comfortable Jawbone ever created.

From the Manufacturer

Jawbone ICON is equipped with military-grade NoiseAssassin 2.5 with wind reduction, the best noise cancellation technology that money can buy. Originally developed for use by tank commanders and helicopter pilots, NoiseAssassin is a proprietary technology that eliminates unwanted background noise when you talk on the phone. It gives you the freedom to enjoy quiet phone conversations in places you previously couldn't. Jawbone headsets are the only Bluetooth headsets with a Voice Activity Sensor (VAS) that literally feels your speech vibrations. As a result, Jawbone ICON delivers unmatched speech quality and eliminates virtually all background noise.

See a comparison between the Jawbone ICON and its siblings, the Jawbone 2 and Jawbone Prime, and check out how to wear the Jawbone ICON for the best fit and to optimize use of the VAS.

It's the best, most convenient way to enjoy all your audio and calls in one place.

I've had over 20 headsets and am extremely fussy. This headset is by far the best is most ways.

Its difficult to explain how it fits different, yet its comfortable and secure. The headset slides into the ear instead of being compressed into the ear.

Quality of Voice in normal setting:
Perfect. It's the only headset where I NEVER got a complaint.

Noise Cancellation:
Almost perfect. Just make sure the headset touches your face.
I had Prince jamming on the radio where the windows in the house were rattling.
I could barely hear the other person or myself, yet they could only hear a clip of the music every few seconds. They could hear me fine.

Connection to Phone:
This is where the biggest problems occurred. It sometimes took up to a minute of trying to get the headset to connect on my Palm Treo.
My Blue Ant connects every time without a glitch.

The only other headset that comes close is the Blue Ant V1.
If I were to rate both, I would give the Icon a 9.0 and the Blue Ant V1 a 7.5.
I rate all other headsets below a 5.

The only feature I would like to see on these headsets is a way to find them when they get misplaced.
Perhaps a way for the phone to communicate with it when a button is pressed on the phone.

I'm really not very crazy about bluetooths (blueteeth?), but since I spend a lot of time driving, in California, with a manual transmission, it's kind of a necessary evil. That being said, iirc, the Jawbone Icon is the 5th bluetooth I've owned. It's also quite far and beyond the BEST bluetooth I've ever used!

In the past, I've had problems with comfort, volume, background noise, charging, and even straight up defective units (plus I'm embarrassed to say, I'm an idiot and I somehow lost the most expensive one, a Plantronics 975). But I don't have any complaints about the Jawbone Icon!

Comfort - comes with a bunch of different-size earpieces, and optional ear-hook. No prob!

Volume - callers sound very clear to me. Previous handsfree devices I've used never had enough volume for me to hear clearly when I'm driving in the car. I don't think the Icon can actually adjust volume, except through the phone volume.

Background noise - waaay waaay better than my Plantronics 975. From the first time I called my wife with it, she noticed a huge, huge difference. She said it was even better than my old Blueant Q1 (which was pretty darn good). No wind or road noise, turn signal clicks, or even radio really got through to her - just my voice!

Ease of use - This is where the Jawbone Icon is OUTSTANDING. The on/off switch makes all the difference. No holding the button for 5 seconds, or any garbage like that. Just flip the switch, and it's done! The button placement is good, too.

Anyway, I've already said it, but to sum up: it's the best bluetooth I've ever owned, hands down.

For me, a headset must have excellent noise cancellation. Also, the headset must be loud enough to drown out surrounding noise. These trump all other features. Why have a headset if no one can hear me or I can't hear them, right? In fact, I will gladly give up comfort and features for a better noise canceling and/or louder headset. This headset is good, but the Jawbone 2, my headset before this one, has noticeably better noise cancellation.

I wear my headset on the left side. I also find that the medium earbud, no loop, fits perfectly. It seems to seal out noise better than the small or larger earbuds. My 5'2" girlfriend needs the small one. All testing was done with a Sprint Palm Pre.

I purchased 'The Thinker' from a Verizon Wireless store. On the Aliph's website, the headset it white/silver with a texture of ellipses featuring an "intellectual man's voice" for the MyTalk app. My version of 'The Thinker' was black, same texture, and featuring the voice from 'The Catch.' The voice was a nice change from the beeps and dongs of most headsets. The voice will tell you when the battery is low or how much time you have left when pressing the multifunction button once when not on a call.

The Jawbone 2 doesn't seem to pick up anything outside of two-three feet. I could drive at 65 mph with the driver side window rolled down and people said the wind is about a 4 on a scale of 1-10. I could drive my 2005 Corolla with the radio blasting, windows rolled up, and people would say that the radio was at about a 3. I could have a conversation with someone about 4-5 feet from me and callers said they could only hear me speaking. When riding my bike 20 mph, yes I can ride that fast, people said it was between 4 and 6. They could hear me just fine.

Jawbone Rocks!

Good: Unparralleled noise cancelling technology, voice tells you how much talk time is left, great invisible style and I haven't yet tried the voice dial apps.
Better next time: I'll buy a different color, it is too easy to lose the black/white combo - this headset is beautiful and tiny, I need a different color so I can spot it better when I put it down.

I was skeptical about paying big bucks for a headset, but I was more tired of my spouse constantly griping that he could not hear me on my previous headsets (Jabra and Plantronics mid-price products). This headset is worth every penny! Noise cancelling technology is excellent. I had to take a business call in the middle of a P.F. Chang's lunch (P.F.'s is the most acoustically deafening place outside of a hammer testing factory). My callers thought I was in my office! Even hubby has stopped complaining (worth the dough just for that :) )

Comes with numerous options to attach to your ear and for me the 'in ear' one works fine and does not fall out. Love this headset - I'm Jawbone from now on!
