Aliph’s updated Jawbone Bluetooth headset reviewed (Verdict: Smaller but just as quirky)

jawbone_two_js_01_2.jpg

The first time I saw the original Aliph Jawbone Bluetooth headset in person I was shocked at its size. That perforated metal casing that looked so lovely on the outside concealed a mound of plastic the size of a circus peanut. Mark McClusky has taken the updated Jawbone for a ride on his auricle and found it to match the already excellent call quality of its predecessor, all in a package that’s 50% lighter than before and visibly less broad.

But at $120, you’ll be paying mostly for the looks. (Perfectly functional Bluetooth headsets can be found for under $20 without much trouble.) I like the lizard skin pattern on the new model — designed by Yves Behar, dontchakno — but I could see how some would find it a bit tawdry. It definitely rides the line.

    Yummm Circus Peanuts

    My father loves his Jawbone. I refused to let him give me one, I have enough trouble not looking crazy as I walk down the street, I don’t need to be talking to no one.
