Curious to how it competes with the Jawbone 2..
I just picked one up yesterday. For me the audio on a call seems better - slightly - than the New Jawbone. Perhaps not worth the expense if you have a New Jawbone already ...

What "sealed the deal" for me is the new style earbuds (which are available separately and fit the New as well as the Prime). I was constantly bending the ear loops on the New and bought replacements in bulk as once bent I could never get them to fit right again. The new style earbuds allow me to wear the Prime without any ear loop, and they hold the sensor snugly against my cheek so it works better (the way it's supposed to work) - YMMV of course because we all have different ears.

I've spent more $$ than I care to think about searching for the Holy Grail of a BT headset that I really like. None have been perfect but the Prime comes closer than anything I have ever tried to date. My advice would be if you have the New Jawbone, get the new earbuds for it; if you don't, get the Prime.
