Jawbone Prime Bluetooth Headset
New Jawbone Prime Bluetooth Headset Now Available In Our Stores Priced At Only $119.95
As I highlighted a couple of weeks ago when the Jawbone PRIME was first announced, I’m delighted to say that the new Jawbone Prime Bluetooth Headset is now available to buy across all of our stores priced at only $119.95.
The other cool thing is that if you’re an eager early adopter you won’t find a better place to get one since neither Amazon, Newegg or even Best Buy have the PRIME in stock yet (find your headset for Treo, Palm Pre, Centro, iPhone, BlackBerry and G1).
Currently the only available colors are Black and Platinum (above and below left) but we will have all remaining (slightly more funky) colors also available soon.
Since establishing itself as the bestselling high-end Bluetooth headset with its previous New Jawbone model, Aliph has now added three main new technology features to the Jawbone PRIME that the company boasts make it “the best ever created”. The features include:
Superior NoiseAssasin 2.0
The Jawbone Prime claims to offer even better noise elimination than the previous generations. Version 2.0 of its patented military-grade technology apparently delivers “an order of magnitude” improvement in the noisiest environments – extracting even more ambient noise while keeping the user’s voice output as natural as possible.
Acoustic Voice Activity Detector (AVAD)
The new AVAD technology provides a provides a fail-safe mechanism when the Voice Activity Sensor (VAS) [the little clear button at the tip of the headset pictured above] doesn't touch your face. When the VAS is not touching the face, Jawbone PRIME performs as good as or better than any other noise cancelling headset. When the VAS touches the face, you get the turbo-boost to the NoiseAssassin performance.
Better Wind Performance
Considering how much the previous New Jawbone suffered in windy conditions Aliph focused its engineers on the task of completely eliminating the impact wind has on speech. By leveraging some innovative DSP techniques and Jawbone's proprietary Voice Activity Sensor (VAS) Aliph has implemented a wind solution that maintains award-winning design without having to apply a visually disruptive wind-sock or baffle to physically block the wind.
I’ll naturally write a full in-depth review when I get my own new Jawbone Prime Bluetooth Headset early next week. At the same time, if you’re already one of the lucky few to own a PRIME please take a moment to share your thoughts and experience via the comments link below.
