When it comes to Bluetooth headsets, you will find that there is a gulf in class between all the players, and Aliph is one of them right at the very top. After all, who are we to argue with the folks behind the Jawbone Bluetooth headset as well as being the brains of NoiseAssassin, the world’s first and only military-grade noise-eliminating technology? Fast forward to today and Aliph is well and alive, unveiling their latest and most sophisticated device to date known as the Jawbone ICON. The Jawbone ICON supposedly offers unprecedented ease of use and audio quality with a balance of an industry-first software platform known as MyTALK, where it enables users to personalize and update their Jawbones through the Internet. Now that’s definitely something new, as previous Bluetooth headsets from everyone else was basically a device that could not be upgraded software-wise.
Thanks to the all-new MyTALK platform, the Jawbone ICON is able to boast built-in intelligence as well as the ability to personalize with the click of a mouse. Currently in a private beta mode, you can be sure that your Jawbone ICON will offer a richer in-ear experience, pointing to a future where people are able to breathe new life into their Jawbones over a period of time, hence extending the durability and usage of a device which might go some way in helping reduce the amount of gadgets heading to our landfills each year, which can be a pain to dispose of.
Features of the Jawbone ICON include NoiseAssassin 2.5 with wind reduction, an innovative speaker design and signal processing, set-it-and-forget-it audio which eliminates the need to adjust volume from one caller to the next, a talk time of up to 4.5 hours depending on the handset it is paired to, a 10 meter range at the minimum, and the ability to charge up to 80% in just 35 minutes. Each $99.99 purchase comes with 7 earbud sizes as well as one premium adjustable ear loop to get you started right out of the box.
