Went through all this ka-ka a few months ago. Oregon's "no talking
while driving " law went into effect Jan 1, and for once I was ahead
of the curve.
I work in noisy places, and drive noisy trucks on occasion. My choices
boiled down to:
Plantronics Voyager. Noise canceling technology, great battery life,
a little large and didn't go really well with wearing glasses at the same
Aliph Jawbone Prime. Got one of these cut little puppies. Noise
canceling works GREAT--I can carry on a conversation standing next to
Battery life is OK---it goes a couple of days between charges. Has an
annoying delay before it hooks up on incoming calls, but I'm getting used
It comes with 6 different eargels and 2 different loops. Tried them all, even
tried some Plantronics eargels with it---None of them held it securely for
more than a couple of hours. It has this little button on the backside that
presses against my fat cheek, eventually it would cam it out of my ear.
Fixed that with a custom molded earpiece from Custom Molded Earpieces from AverySound.com
Now I LIKE my Jawbone---comfy to wear most of the day.
