hat’s not to like about Jawbone’s finest Bluetooth? Although it costs a bit more than the cheapies you can pick up at the local big box store, we’re confident you get more in sound quality, ease of use and yes, style, to justify it. quote

Aliph's hit the spot with six pretty rad designs for the Jawbone Icon, while offering a fresh platform to customize each headset and making it easier to use at the same time. More importantly, the Icon has a noise elimination trick that actually produces results.

Not only is the Aliph Jawbone Icon attractive and affordable with great call quality, but it is also highly customizable with advanced features that makes it the most innovative Bluetooth headset we've seen to date.

The $99.99 MSRP is $30 less than all the previous Jawbone headsets and IMHO it is worth the price for a stylish, comfortable, and good performing headset.

Overall, there’s not much to quibble with about the Jawbone Icon. If you’re going to wear a Bluetooth headset (and you should in your car, at the very least), the Icon deserves a spot at the top of your roster.

Look, we can hate on Bluetooth headsets all we want, but the fact is, they're both practical and popular among a certain set—and Aliph's new Jawbone Icon is a solid choice, though barely changed from previous versions.

Aliph has shown a lot of savvy in designing its headsets; in the Jawbone Icon it offers consumers a reasonably priced, well-designed and very snazzy-looking device.

Aliph does it again with the Jawbone Icon, a svelte, refined Bluetooth headset that looks great, sounds great, and is uniquely extensible.

I have owned Motorola, Samsung and Plantronic Bluetooth headsets in the past. My favorite up until now was the Plantronics. The jawbone icon is small, simple and just plain works. I don't think I need to speak to the performance anymore. This is all I look for in a headset and this one...

Sound Quality: Audio pick up is quite clear and noise canceling is unmatched. You get very very minor distortion due to noise canceling when there's background noise that it's filtering out. Otherwise, really it's quite clear or when you disable noise canceling. The audio from...

I was lucky enough to win the Jawbone Icon in a contest, and I was sent the Bombshell model, which is bright gold. I probably would have picked the more subtle colors if I had a choice, but the gold Icon looks a kinda neat, especially with the textured surface. As a headset, the audio is nice...

having owned several bluetooth headsets I was very pleased to put this on and have it be so comfortable right from the beginning. Voice quality is about average with some static occasionally but people on the other side of the line always said I sounded crystal clear.

This is the best Jawbone yet. Great noise cancellation, size, wind performance (finally), and comfort. Apps are an added bonus!

Although the ICON has the great feature of using words to let you know its status (if its on, battery, connection, etc) it's voice quality isn't as good as my Voyager Pro. I compared the two using the same phone (Treo 755p) as well as using it while on a WebEx conference call....

When I set out to buy the ICON, I wasn't looking for much. Just a headset to wear while driving home from work so I didn't have to juggle my phone, steering and shifting all at once. I figured that anything above and beyond that was cake and the price was right, so why not pull the...
