Looking Hip In The Jawbone Era

The Jawbone Era, evolving from the discrete styling of the Icon and taking its place at the top of the company’s product line up. There’s more than just good looks promised, too; Jawbone has also slotted in a bigger speaker for HD Audio, together with an accelerometer for more intuitive control.

Jawbone ERA is the fifth model in the highly successful line of Jawbone headsets made by Aliph, who continues to improve on the technologies developed and used in previous models. Unlike its predecessor, the Jawbone Icon which featured a flashier jewelled look, the design of the Era is more classy and sleek in my opinion. Aliph came up with four great designs for the Jawbone Era : Midnight, Silver Lining, Smokescreen and Shadowbox. And today we have the Silver Lining model with us for review thanks to the good folks at Brightstar Singapore.

Unboxing & Tech Specs
The Jawbone Era’s box looks fantastic, with the device prominently displayed inside a clear plastic display. Once opened, it reveals the sets of ear buds (4 spout ear buds, 4 round ear buds plus one universal binaural ear loop) to assist with keeping the ERA in your ear, which I find a necessity as I can’t seem to keep the headset in my ear with any of the ear buds. The box also contains an A/C adapter, a car charger, a Micro-USB cable for charging via computer and even a protective carry case. The carrying case looks great in black with the simple Jawbone logo printed, and snaps open and shut easily by two metal strips located at the top of the case. It’s not a particularly big case, and fits the device well. The Era’s packaging is high-end, as it should be, considering the quality of the device’s design.

Specification wise the Jawbone Era supports Bluetooth v2.1 with EDR, A2DP 1.2, a range of up to 10 metres (33 ft) and two live audio connections. It has a 10mm wideband speaker for HD audio, NoiseAssassin 3.0 technology with wind reduction, a built-it accelerometer with MotionX technology, dual micro-processors and automatic volume control. It can store up to 8 paired devices and handle two simultaneous connections. Power wise, it is stated to have around 5.5 hours talk time and 10 days standby time with the built-in Li-ion battery.

Sold my car withing a few days. Fast process. However, be ready for dealers to slash price saying need to change tyre, need to repaint, etc during viewing.
