Aliph has announced its latest Bluetooth headset in its lauded Jawbone line — the Jawbone Icon. The design is shorter and fatter than previous models, while the excellent noise cancellation is allegedly improved. The most notable addition is MyTalk, which lets users update and customize features via downloadable apps. Here’s a snippet from the press release:
Aliph — maker of the market-leading Jawbone Bluetooth headset and inventor of NoiseAssassin, the world’s first and only military-grade noise-eliminating technology — today unveiled its most sophisticated product yet, Jawbone ICON. Jawbone ICON offers unprecedented ease of use and audio quality as well as an industry-first software platform called MyTALK that lets users personalize and update their Jawbones via the web. Jawbone ICON will be available for $99.99 beginning January 18 in six unique design personas.
I’m a big fan of Aliph’s products and currently use a Jawbone Prime with my PlayStation 3 and mobile phones. Provided you can achieve a good fit, there isn’t a Bluetooth headset I’d recommend more. The Icon seems like an incremental upgrade on the hardware side, with some interesting potential through MyTalk.
Out of curiousity, what Bluetooth headsets do you ladies and gents use?
