Jawbone Era Bluetooth Headset Packs An Accelerometer, Most Certainly Isn’t Useful…Yet (update)
Update: Checkout our Jawbone Era review.
In recent, Aliph seemed to be following in the footsteps of Lacie, committing to only minor product iterations with little real value added to what they’re minting as a new product and a hefty price tag to boot. And while their latest, the Jawbone Era, seems to be in the same vein, there are some cool and notable features that might be worth a look, heck even a try.
So what sets the Era apart from their other Bluetooth headsets? First and foremost the accelerometer, which has become a staple in all smartphones since the advent of the iPhone. While it’s functionality is limited to just two functions – pairing the headsets by shaking, and tapping it (we’re not sure how this utilizes the accelerometer, though) to begin and end calls – Aliph promises to enhance its usability through future software and app updates.
While we’re not one to listen to tunes out of just one ear piece, they’ve bumped the driver size to 10mm which should improve the fidelity of the headset as well as the volume. This is further complimented by Noise Assassin 3.0, the latest and what they’re claiming to be the most advanced noise and wind cancelling technology.
The Jawbone Era is on sale now for $129.99 and is available in 4 different shades of black.
