Aliph Jawbone 2

 

Riding on the shoulders of its predecessor, the original Aliph Jawbone; comes the second generation Jawbone 2. By adding Noise Assassin technology, a 40% smaller size, and an even cooler, more stylish look to it, the Aliph Jawbone 2 might be the...

Good design; impressive noise canceling; works with or w/out ear hook

Proprietary charger; spendy; Bluetooth 1.1

The Aliph Jawbone 2's smaller size and noise canceling features will certainly impress as will its stand-out-styling.

When Aliph released the original Jawbone nearly two years ago, I felt as if I was the only person in the world that didn't like the look, thought the design too

Aliph Jawbone 2 Review

 

When it comes to Bluetooth headsets, there is one that has become synonymous with comfort, clarity and wining design: Jawbone by Aliph ($79.95; see original review here). Released 2

Very light and slick looking, Most comfortable headset to date?, Very good noise cancellation, Simple charger and minimalist design

Not enough features, Buttons awkward to use, Force reconnect not adequate, Expensive

That's a huge drop in weight and indeed this device is about 50% smaller than the original. Not bad at all. The only downside so far is that talk time is cut down by 2 hours, which for some is significant

My only gripe at that time was with the size and "comfort" of the Jawbone. It was big (relative to the Z9 and other headsets) and tricky to find a comfortable fit while wearing glasses. Well, now the Jawbone2 comes along and the first thought that many...

The new Jawbone is available today for $129.99 at AT&T retail stores nationwide and online at www.jawbone.com and www.wireless.att.com. Available initially in matte black, it will be coming soon in silver and rose gold.

The Jawbone 2 is here, and Aliph has fixed the issues that plagued the original.

The first Aliph Jawbone Bluetooth headset impressed the critics at CNET so much that they gave it an Editors’ Choice award, and now that the sequel has dropped into our hot little hands, we’re going to have to place it right along with its older...

Jawbone Communication : Aliph Jawbone 2

 

Hands-free mobile communication is becoming a more popular judging by the number of people who appear to be talking to themselves as I walk past. Sometimes I feel tempted to join in the conversation.

While you may consider a jawbone to be part of your skull, Aliph, a market leader in noise cancelling Bluetooth headsets, prefers to regard the Jawbone (note the capital letter) as “earwear”. In other words the Jawbone is an ear-piece style headset...

I have used many bluetooth earpieces including Motorola, Plantronics and now Jawbone. I bought the jawbone2 for the noise assassin. People complained about background noise with the plantronics so I thought I would try the new Jawbone. At first people...

Lightweight, great sound, noise assassin works great at first

Product Specifications

The Jawbone 2 is the next step in the integration of best in class noise elimination technology with personal design that is both humanistic and minimal. In the tradition of bringing together beauty and science, the Jawbone 2 is a miracle of miniaturization. Every effort has been made to contain best in class noise elimination technology in the most unassuming, yet richly detailed product. The "invisible button" policy at Jawbone accomplishes a clutter-free look. Touch-surface technology allows the user to operate switches by lightly pressing the outside shield. Comprised of an outer shield and inner surface, the Jawbone 2 experience is two-fold. The outer shield, curved and rectilinear to follow the face, is lightly textured in a sound-reflective progressive relief, a three-dimensional texture visually representative of noise abatement surfaces. This unique surface becomes animated as light creates highlights and shadows when worn. The inner surface, the one touching the face and creating contact with the Voice Activity Sensor, is gently curved to be ergonomic and comfortable on the skin.
