Get Your Icon On: Jawbone Icon (Bluetooth) Review and Giveaway

***Please Note–This Giveaway Has ENDED. ***

Please see Winners page for winning entrant information.

I was recently presented with an opportunity to review the newest gadget from Aliph, the Jawbone ICON®, The World’s First Truly Intelligent Bluetooth® Headset.  I’ve wanted a Bluetooth®  headset for quite some time, so I was excited to do this review.  I am not tech savvy (I married an engineer so I wouldn’t have to be).  When it comes to the latest in gadgets, I generally look to my husband for his input.  When I mentioned to him that I would be reviewing the Jawbone ICON®, he was impressed.  He said, “That’s a top-of-the-line Bluetooth® , honey!”

I received the the Jawbone ICON® Bombshell for review.

And here I am sporting it…


What I love…

I love the fact that I can actually use it comfortably.  I have tiny ears.  I have NEVER been able to find a Bluetooth (or headset earphones) that was comfortable. The Jawbone ICON came with the “Fit Kit” and I was able to use the smallest round ear bud.  I also love the noise cancellation.  Since I have a hearing deficit, often times talking on the cell phone can be a strain.  The ICON reduces all of that extra noise and makes normal conversation possible. I also love that the ICON speaks to me.  It tells me the phone number of the person that is calling when a call comes in.  It tells me how much battery time I have left.  The fact that I can turn it on/off with the touch of one finger, while carrying a squirming child, is also significant.

What I would change…

Um… nothing.  I haven’t figured out how to answer my phone without having to use the earpiece now that I have it set up.  I am certain, however, that it is purely USER related, hence the need for a tech savvy husband.

I give the Jawbone ICON a hearty 5 out of 5 hearts!
