Default Jawbone Experience

Please Login to Remove!

After about two months of reading reviews and researching prices, I finally broke down and bought a Jawbone Bluetooth at my local Verizon store, as they gave me a price I couldn't refuse ($69.99 and a 30-day money back guarantee).

I returned the product within two weeks (thank goodness for the guarantee that you get with Verizon vs. buying it off ebay or craigslist). The earpiece would not stay on all the time. Sometimes if I turned my head suddenly or looked down, it would fall off. They give you four different ear attachments and the two smallest ones still fell off. The clincher was when I was walking in a noisy mall and received a call. The caller could hear me clearly however I could not hear them unless I stepped into a store where there wasn't much talking going on. So, yes their product does have noise cancellation, but it seems that it's noise cancellation for the party on the other end of the phone and not me. Just my two cents (or 6,999 cents).

Sorry to hear it. I have had one for a while and love it. It's the best headset I have had and I have over 13 of them.

yeah sorry to hear that. one thing you should have tried was the jabra ear gel mod. this has made a huge improvement for my jawbone in loud places. i used to have to use it with the volume all the way up. now with the ear gels i use it at a medium level. only time i have had to turn it all the way up is when i am driving in my jeep with the top off.
At least you were able to return it and get your money back

I had the exact same issues with the Jawbone, Try either the Blueant Z9 or the Jabra BT8040. I would have kept the Z9 but it wasn't working with both my BB and my Samsung, the Jabra switches between both seamlessly. Both have very good volume and are very comfortable.

I use my glasses to keep my Jawbone snug, but I agree the fit around the ear could be better. Sound quality has been magnificent, IMO.

Default Motorola H700

I tried a few different ones , the Motorola H700 is the best and sound is clear, even when driving ( no road sounds) I love it . Give it a try.

I've been trying hard to like the Jawbone but just can't get the hang of it. Got the jabra gels and everything but don't find it comfortable. 50% of the people I call say it sounds like crap.

So now I'm trying the Moto H700. A little static but great volume and comfort.
