How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

With the new Era, Jawbone continues to produce quality Bluetooth headsets that you'll want to take calls on. The sound quality is top notch, with Computerworld saying they're "most impressed" with the Era, and that "for such a compact device, the audio was clear and quite audible." The microphone is good as well, with Re/code noting that the people they called had "had no trouble" hearing them and incoming callers sounded "clear." In addition to sounding good the Era also feels good, with Slashgear being able to wear it all day "without any discomfort." Even though the battery life comes in at about only four hours, the updated Jawbone Era should be at the top of your list if you're in the market for a new Bluetooth headset.
