Jawbone Results so Far
I’ve had the chance to use the Jawbone headset for a couple of days now…and here are my results so far. The sound shield technology absolutely works…it seems to basically cut all background noise. I haven’t put it through a few tests that I want to do, like a person talking next to me while I’m talking on the phone…but that will come. The downside is that your voice, when talking on the Jawbone, always sounds electronic…or heavily processed (because it is, I suppose). It’s not a natural sounding voice on the other end…but it is clear and audible, and it seems that the person on the other end is able to recognize your voice. Also, sound shield does NOT work in direct wind. I have a convertible, and if heavy wind is blowing right now the headset, it doesn’t work (it is loud). If I lean forward out of the wind…it works in blocking all of the road and wind noise…but only if it is sheltered. I’m going to contact the company who makes it, Aliph, and give them feedback on this (they probably already know…but I’ll chime in anyway).
Anyway, so far I’ll keep it, we’ll see how well it goes over the next week or so.
