Era by Jawbone


Sharp, discreet design. Secure and comfortable fit. Solid call quality

Short battery life

The Era by Jawbone is a refined, discreet Bluetooth headset that offers solid call quality and dispenses with the stigma associated with more gaudy devices.

Ear Candy


Jawbone's marquee Bluetooth telephone earpiece has been redesigned. It's been greatly simplified, and the sound quality improved. And while the Jawbone is as ever unmistakably a Bluetooth earpiece — the mobile accessory that has come to signify...

Super tiny and light. Simpler design is a welcome change. Excellent audio quality from the speaker. Superior noise cancellation. Cool feature: If you lose it in your tuck-and-roll, use the Jawbone app to make the headset beep so you can find it. Works...

Four hours of battery life is weak — to get more, you have to stash it in the charging case ($30 extra) when not in use. Looser fit than an in-ear headphone, so while it stays put, volume suffers. Still too nerdy to pass the cool-kid test, but getting...

Jawbone Era (2014) review: A new leader for discreet Bluetooth dialing


Editors' Note: This review has been updated after experience reviewing the Plantronics Voyager Edge.

The Jawbone Era is astonishingly small, light, and comfortable to wear. The headset boasts excellent noise-cancellation and clean audio quality. The companion mobile app offers helpful and fun extras.

The Jawbone Era’s base model has short battery life and lacks a volume button. The Era's small size is tough on large hands.

Outside of short battery life, the small and comfortable Jawbone Era delivers the full package of an affordable price, excellent sound quality, and a powerful companion app.

Jawbone ERA Review (2014)


When you hear wearables, the expectation is usually some sort of Glass-style head mounted display. Yet there's still plenty to be done with audio-only: a clandestine whisper of information into your ear, funneling in directions, messages, and other...

Aliph Jawbone Era review: Aliph Jawbone Era


When the Aliph Jawbone first came along in 2007, we praised the Bluetooth headset for its unique design and impressive audio quality. Little did we know then that the company would continue to innovate, improving upon its product year after year. There...

The Aliph Jawbone Era has a unique and attractive design, with updated features that include caller ID by name, a built-in accelerometer, and HD-quality audio.

The Aliph Jawbone Era doesn't have a dedicated volume rocker, and the way it fits the ear is not as easy and comfortable as we would like.

The Aliph Jawbone Era knocks it out of the park with high-end features, amazing audio quality, and innovative design.

Review: Aliph Jawbone Era


The latest model from Bluetooth headset maker Aliph is called the Jawbone Era. It improves on previous Jawbone versions, and, yet again, stands as the...

Superior audio quality. Eight different fit options should handle about every type of ear. Using touch to control headset is surprisingly compelling, and updates could enable new gestures and interactions. Four different Yves Behar designs trump...

0 is not cheap for a headset. But if you’re on it a lot, it’s worth it. Slightly heavier than previous model

Jawbone ERA Review


Jawbone's newest Jawbone Bluetooth headset has arrived, the Jawbone ERA, evolving the discrete styling of the ICON and taking its place at the top of the company's range. There's more than just good looks promised, though; Jawbone has also slotted in a...

It's tough not to be impressed by the Jawbone ERA: the HD audio and effective noise-reduction technology take care of the core functionality, around which the solid build quality, innovative use of an accelerometer, and comfortable fit add up to an...

Aliph Jawbone Era


Transmission quality is impeccable. This is where Aliph excels, and the company is still the class leader. Calls sound pretty much perfect on the other end, and noise cancellation is very strong, with only one exception: A bit of wind noise came...

Good-looking. Excellent sound quality, especially for A2DP. Can run apps

Sound quality can be just a touch muddy

The Aliph Jawbone Era is more than a headset: it's a potential audio computing platform.

Aliph Jawbone Era (2011)


Its case is slightly larger than the Icon's and curves to better fit the face and to ensure the Voice Activity sensor touches the cheek.'s reviewer sums up the Jawbone Era as "the only [headset] that you can look at and believe that...

Excellent HD-quality audio, Innovative motion-sensing technology, Extremely stylish, Excellent wind and noise reduction

No dedicated volume rocker switch, Uncomfortable earpiece
