The new Jawbone design is 50% smaller than the original Jawbone. It features military-grade NoiseAssassin technology, with ten times better voice clarity than competing headsets – meaning it transmits 90% less noise. The Jawbone is a unique fusion of technology and design, created to look and feel like an accessory along the lines of jewelry and eyewear. The headset literally feels your speech using the Voice Activity Sensor to distinguish the user’s voice from ambient noise with incredible accuracy. The Digital Signal Processing algorithms subtract the noise so only the sound of your voice comes through. Two buttons that control all functions are located under the shield, which is extremely lightweight at just 10 grams. The streamlined and subtly textured rectangle curves ergonomically to the face. It’s designed to be worn on either ear. The headset provides a more comfortable and customized fit with three sizes of earbuds and four earloops that can be worn on either ear.
