Yes, Jawbone is still an awesome bluetooth brand. However because of this they are often more expensive that most other brands. But you get what you pay for!

It's still among the best. Blueant and Plantronics I'd say are about equal now though. Motorola also makes some excellent headsets in their higher end line.

i know jawbones are usually crazy expensive but i got my prime for $15 refurbed with free shipping and my new Icon Hero was $20 with free shipping (refurbed). i figure you cant beat that.

I've also seen blueant and they look good but i didn't know anything about them. good to know they are a good brand

I had the jawbone 2 and the jawbone prime and really wasn't too happy with either as they kept falling out of my ear. for my last bluetooth, I went with teh plantronics voyager pro and I find it to be far and away superior for hearing and speaking. it looks a little clunky, but it is balanced so well, that I literally forget I have it on during long trips.

I'm using a jawbone Era. The app has support for Iphone which is apparently decent, the android version only works for a few phones officially. I've got an epic and it was fine if not a bit slow (then again as I said, its not officially supported so that's better than breaking it I suppose). Call quality I've had a few headsets and I do have to say at least on my end its rather nice. Also I like the fact that if I am in a boring meeting I can turn on music and stream it directly to my ear while still looking like I'm being productive. Being able to modify the pre-loaded voice and use different things other than just the date and time was an interesting feature, but didn't really blow me away. All in all, I'm happy with it, but the price makes it an iffy buy.

Oh and like the person above mentioned, yeah comfort is a big thing. Usually I'm not a huge fan of headsets without the around the ear loop. But yeah works well and is comfy.

@erodahs: the streaming audio was one of the features that enticed me. i like to watch netflix on my phone at work (use to watch it on my pc until they blocked it) and this way i can keep my bluetooth in for "important business phone calls" while actually streaming the netflix audio. I dont care the least bit about any kind of software or battery meter or anything like that since i never have and probably never will use stuff like that.

what do you mean when you say "slow"? you mean voice lag?

Adding another vote for the Plantronics Voyager Pro. I have owned and used the Voyager, Voyager Pro and the Pro +UC. I've loved them all.

Only my first voyager broke and that was due to always sticking it in and out of my pants pocket. Now they come with a little case so I doubt it will be an issue.

I love streaming from my PC to my Voyager and the range is surprisingly good for bluetooth.

I also love the design and the fact that it simply doesn't come off, no matter what. I've used it biking, hiking and even boating with no problems.
