Review of the Aliph Jawbone Icon bluetooth headset

The Aliph Jawbone Icon is one of the newest and most advanced headsets available. This small, elegant device comes in three colors (red, black and silver), is very light, fits easily around the ears, and is extremely comfortable to wear. Its small size conceals loads of advanced hardware, including a voice activity sensor and noise cancellation system. Despite its complex technology, the device has been designed for easy use. It is very comfortable to wear and provides excellent sound quality. The Icon's diminutive size has not diminished its quality as a headset. It provides excellent sound and easily beats the Motorola HS850 (recently reviewed here) in terms of sound quality.

Noise Assassin lets you hear what you want to hear

The majority of headsets available today have one major flaw: external noise often spoils the experience by drowning out the sound from the headset. The greatest innovation in the design of the Aliph Jawbone Icon is the external noise elimination technology. Using the Noise Assassin technology, Aliph researchers have built a product that is capable of excluding ten times more external noise than all its closest competitors. The ability to incorporate a patented Voice Activity Sensor allows the Icon to subtract all the other noise from the environment and lets only your sound through. This filtration of external noise allows you to hear and be heard clearly even when cruising around town with the windows down.

Simple, comfortable and stylish

The Aliph Jawbone Icon headset works by simply pressing one of the two buttons on the side. One button allows you to talk and the other alters the intensity of the volume. The workings of the Icon are elementary. Once connected to a play device with Bluetooth, the headset instantly receives the sound. Unlike many other headsets, the Icon has precise, clear audio that is easy to hear regardless of the surrounding noise.

The external features of the Icon are stylish and elegant. Unlike the old plastic headsets of yesteryear, the Icon comes with a glossy finish. When the device is worn over the ears, it surprisingly resembles a fancy piece of cosmetic jewellery.

This classy headset comes with a variety of accessories including four sets of large and small ear hooks and ear buds. A USB charge cable and a wall plug are also included. The headset charges via USB and comes with an AC-to-USB wall adapter.

The Icon ranks among the very best of modern Bluetooth headsets. It is ideal for people who spend a lot of time outdoors or are constantly traveling, but it is equally useful for those who don't. With a price tag of $130, the stylish Jawbone Icon with its military-based sound technology is worth every penny and more.
