Blackberry Torch 9850 (Sprint)
Dell Latitude 6400
-Solid sound quality, great noise reduction. Pretty lightweight. Battery life is good (after reset)
-Tested in the car with the windows down and radio on (volume @ 40%) - the other call could still hear me clearly.
-Tested walking/jogging in the park. No wind noise but could hear my laboured talking and footsteps.
-Had to reset to and update to the latest firmware to solve battery drain problem.
-Multipoint is flaky. It works but when you walk away from the notebook and come back it will not reconnect until I turn off/on the ERA.
Registered here just to say NEVER AGAIN!
This is my first and, I swear, the last jawbone. How come so that all reviews one can find over internet are about the wonderful and shining and admirable jawbone era never say anything about this **bleep**y call sound, while 95% of actual users just scream about that?
It sounds terrible, it hangs on connection/disconnection, the case is squeaking, and this is a premium class? I have a Plantronics M20 a 20$ headset, which doesn't support a2dp, can't talk to me with sexy bombshell voice, but I can connect it to ANY device and TALK and even HEAR.
I do understand that this might be some codec incompatibility, like this headset doesn't have a common codec with my HTC Amaze, with my Alcatel OT-990 and my Acer laptop, but HELL! maybe you should spend some of it's storage on additional codecs, instead of the Hero or a sexy bombshell?
Dieing companies always trying to suck the last juices from it's known name and loyal customers, but we all know how it ends.
rest in peace on the bottom of my trash
I don't think I have ever seen reviews this bad for any company, amazing no CS reps say jack? I guess they know they have a crappy product and don't care? Or maybe they are proud of it?

Experiencing sound quality issues as well. Able to hear incoming communication well. Others cannot hear outgoing communication - many drops. Tried upgrading, etc. as specified in the forums. Still does not work properly.
I got an Era recently and I must say I am very disappointed in it. Even lowering my initial high expextations, it still fails to live upto the hype.

I got the Era from Amazon US, 4000km from my country where it is not officially sold. I went through extensive reviews of many products before finalising on this one and importing it. I ditched the Planctronics Voyager Pro HD which was the last standing contender and I am regretting that decision. Sure this is feature loaded and on paper sounds like it is a league above other BT headsets in the market. But it fails to deliver.
I have a $20 Swissvoice HF23 and a $60 Nokia BH-609 headset from which I was looking to upgrade to a better one. Now when it comes to features, it is impressive, especially myTalk and the accelometer etc.
The sound quality is not great or even acceptable as stated in reviews. I am not sure how this headset managed to get such rave reviews.
The voice is bloated and muffled. The words are not clear. The voice sounds robotic and not natural at all. I have tried switching on Wifi etc to reduce interference but nothing seems to help it. I am truly disappointed with this product.
The SQ falls between the BH-609 and HF23 that I own. It was meant to surpass them both by a huge margin considering they cost $120, twice the BH-609 but still doesn't manage to beat it.
I was going to post a user review in most the forums I frequent and title it "Review of One of the best BT headsets in the world". I told myself this was the best headset but being humble and calling it "one of the best" sounds better. But now I can hardly justify my initial thoughts. I have a flurry of useless pics since I am dropping the user review too.
Despite the rants and cons, on the plus side, surprisingly the music quality is truly impressive and I think it is as good as a BT headset can be. I do not undestand this difference between the SQ for A2DP i.e while listening to music and while making calls.
This was one of my biggest purchases this year and I was truly looking forward to it. I think I will give it away now since I cannot return it.
I am truly disappointed in the product that promised so much but delivered so little.
While my new and shiny ERA laying down on the shelf usless, I've switched to Plantronics Discovery 975 and I can say - Hell! It works! It doesn't talk to you at all, only beeping with 10-15 different beeps. It does about 12 different functions with it's 2 buttons and, you'll never beleive it, they all work. Earpeace sound quality is good, microphones (yes there are 3 of them) are just great. Everything works like a swiss clock, so I recommend it to anyone dissapointed with fancy toys.

Interesting voice interface
I do not see much improvement over my previous Sony Ericsson bluetooth earphones costing 1/4 of ERA's cost.
Extremely loud microphonic effect, anything touching your ERA the wrong way will have a good chance of defening you.
Lousy Android support, it basically crash upon starting.
Earpad's size are ALL wrong, it's either too large that it hurts or too small it falls out...
