Yes the performance is great but there are downsides. Overpriced for what it is
Charging is easy and it uses the same mini-usb connector as my Nokia N900, so a bonus there.
The but is the fit to ear, it either falls out or fits tight and then after an hour makes your ear sore and then quickly very sore, which is a great shame, if Jawbone and Jabra got together we could have a real winner.
When I first got the box out of the bag, I was amazed at how small the thing was, much smaller than I thought it would be. It feels pretty robust and looks pretty nice.
Packaging is minimal and even in the UK, pretty much totality recyclable. You get a wall charger, a tiny but really ( really ) useful short USB cable that can be used with the charger block or a powered USB socket on your PC. A handful of different ear bungs to help you get the right fit and some very simple, but usable instructions. All very nicely thought out, and well designed. Think along the lines of Apple, but in black and your there.
Pairing was easy, press the only button and turn on, then find it on the phone. A small discrete light that is hidden when wearing shows you if its charging, linking to a phone or has been turned on.
The Thinker has a voice to tell you about the battery life etc, this can be changed to a variety of US sounding male and female voices by linking up to the Jawbone site.
I haven't an iPhone, but it also has the ability to show its battery status etc on them if you have the app. Could be useful, but tapping the only button once gives you a verbal estimate of battery life, so its not essential and nothing for us non Apple fans to worry over.
It can also be used ( after a software update again from the Jawbone site ) to be used as a headphone to listen to the phones media player / navigation system as well as a normal phone headset.
Use is easy, it fits to my ear without using any of the different size buds of ear clip. Instructions on how to best get it to fit are on the site and make it very easy, this ensures noise reduction systems work correctly.
It sounds pretty clear from my end, and I haven't had any complaints from the other end, no "are you in a tunnel / down a drain" comments yet. Volume is controlled by the phone which again is easy.
In many ways its all a bit dull and simple, but this makes for a very competent and usable tool.
Overall I am very impressed and would certainly recommend spending a few more pounds on this to other prospective blue tooth ear piece buyers.
