The new Jawbone in black.
Military-Grade NoiseAssassin Technology
Developed over years of research for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Jawbone's NoiseAssassin eliminates real world noise better than competing headset because it's the only hands free device that accurately separates human speech from ambient noise. Unmatched in its ability to remove noise from loud environments like busy streets, cars, crowded cafes, and airports, NoiseAssassin is comprised of two features unique to Jawbone: a patented Voice Activity Sensor (VAS) and proprietary Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms. Jawbone is the only Bluetooth headset with a VAS that feels the speech vibrations from your jaw. This enables Jawbone to capture the distinct frequencies of your voice. Proprietary DSP algorithms work in concert with two powerful microphones and the VAS to accurately model surrounding noise and aggressively eliminate it from the conversation.
Conventional "noise suppression" headsets do not have a Voice Activity Sensor and can only estimate when speech is occurring. This causes performance issues like voice distortion, especially in the presence background noise.
Not Just a Headset, It's Earwear
Made with premium materials like medical-grade plastic and fine leather, the new Jawbone with NoiseAssassin combines science and beauty in the most unassuming, yet richly detailed product. Every effort has been made to contain best in class noise suppression technology in a miniature form that is 50 percent smaller than the original, award-winning Jawbone.
The new Jawbone accomplishes a clean and sophisticated look thanks to invisible buttons. Touch-surface technology allows the user to operate switches by lightly pressing the outer shield. Curved and rectilinear to follow the face, the outer shield is lightly textured and inspired by three-dimensional noise abatement surfaces. The infer surface, the one touching your face and creating contact with the Voice Activity Sensor, is gently curved to be ergonomic and comfortable on your skin.

Top Customer Reviews
The Jawbone II with Noise Assassin is highly recommended. My ears are a bit small so earbuds are often painful and wearing glasses make my ears sore after a while. The Jawbone II is feather-light, fits perfectly in my ear (comes with three different sizes of earbuds), and the leather-covered earloop is extremely comfortable. I called my husband from indoors and outdoors, and he couldn't tell that I was using a bluetooth headset. He did ask if a car passed by couple times when none had, but I think it might be because I was smiling and my cheek probably rubbed up against the unit. The sound quality was very good (clear, not tinny, not piercing) and volume is easily adjustable.
I have not tried this headset in noisy nor windy places, but if you're looking for something to use in the car that is comfortable, discreet, and easy to use then this is a great product.
For a mere $20., the Samsung WEP200 is a far better and more adaptive device for day-to-day use.
To address the fit issues that the standard earpiece accessories fail to do, I first tried jabra minigels. I was able to use the jawbone without the earhook, and I raked leaves with it on, no problem. So it seemed pretty good, but I found that the minigel irritated my ear canal after a day, and it did not always feel real stable.
I then ordered some eargels for the Plantronics Discovery 925 headset. THEY ARE PERFECT! Totally comfortable, channel the sound into my ear correctly, fit the jawbone 2 like a glove, and I can't shake the headset off no matter how hard I try. It keeps the jawbone firmly connected to my cheek no matter what I am doing.
I can't believe Aliph did not come up with this kind of solution. This is what the jawbone2 should have included. If you want the best Bluetooth headset solution out there, get the JB2, get the Plantronics gels, and throw out the earpiece junk from Aliph - you will never need it again.
I am sending it back and replacing with the original style.
The ear hooks on the original style provide a far superior fit, they are very snug. The ones with this model are too loose and removing my glasses brings the jawbone with it. I tried using my original hooks with this one, but they don't fit in the hole (?), crazy.
The ear buds are not as comfortable either. It isn't a 'NoiseAssasin' to me. The lesson here is when you are satisfied, don't get distracted by the new shiny thing. Stick with what you know.
