Jawbone Icon HD + The Nerd (Denim) review: Jawbone Icon HD + The Nerd (Denim)

Jawbone Icon HD + the Nerd

 

The HD comes with seven different sets of ear tips, including three that sit in your ear, and four that use an ear hook. There's also an AC charger with a 4.5-inch micro-USB cable. The default ear tip fit me securely, and I wore the test unit...

Wire-free USB audio with the Nerd. Great sound quality, especially for A2DP. Can run apps. Attractive design

Sound quality isn't as good as on some similar headsets

The Jawbone Icon HD + the Nerd is a one-two punch for users looking for a Bluetooth headset they can use almost anywhere.

[Review] Jawbone Icon HD + The NERD: A Pretty Good Bluetooth Headset, As Long As You Ignore The Price

 

Should you buy it? No, sad to say. The Icon HD's real value comes from Jawbone's suite of extra software, the device management portion of which, myTALK, seems less than finished, and really isn't all that useful. Multipoint A2DP is a nice feature if...

Jawbone ICON Bluetooth Headset Review

 

The newest Bluetooth headset from Jawbone called the Icon is a big improvement over the past generations. The Icon is very easy to use with only 2 buttons to operate one that is only dedicated to powering on and off and the other for answering calls,...

Jawbone Icon HD

 

With high definition wideband audio and one of the best noise cancellation systems in the NoiseAssassin 2.5, you can't go wrong with the Jawbone Icon HD. With the MyTalk platform of apps, you can customize your hands-free experience. If you don't mind...

The Jawbone Icon HD combines great high-definition audio with military-grade noise cancellation. MyTalk app platform offers downloadable apps

There's no volume control on the device. There's also no caller ID

The Jawbone Icon HD offers HD-quality sound. The NoiseAssassin 3.0 is one of the best noise cancellation systems on the market.

Jawbone Icon Bluetooth headset review

 

Small, well designed, good features, sounds great

My Talk apps mostly only available in America

The Jawbone ticks so many boxes that it's hard not to recommend. It looks good, sounds great and more importantly other people could hear us too, regardless of the environment. Okay - so the MyTalk element is probably something you'll play with for...

"Best headset I have ever owned."

 

I have been using this product for almost two years. I broke the cover on it by trying to plug it in in the dark so I had to replace it. I tried the newer Jawbone and it was awful. I then tried a Motorala Sliver II and I hated the over the ear piece...

Small, lightweight, great clarity even outside on windy days.

There was really nothing I didn't like about this headset.

"Great little BT Headset!"

 

I've used a couple different Motorola headsets that were pretty cheap, and I decided it was time to spend a little money on a better one. I bought this headset and I love it! Normally I have issues with headsets that don't have around-the-ear designs...

Small, lightweight, GREAT sound, can listen to music and hear your phone's notifications, and decent battery life.

The ear loop is tiny and flimsy and I found it very difficult to put on, and when I got it on, it felt like it was going to fall right off my ear, so I just don't use it. The in-ear method is designed very and won't come out even if I shake my head.
