Jawbone - Now Available In Gold

New Jawbone - Best Treo & Centro Bluetooth HeadsetFollowing my New Jawbone review (for the Black model) last month, I am delighted to say that the Gold version (pictured below) is now also available in our stores for your Treo or Centro.

New Jawbone Bluetooth Headset

As many Treonauts and Centronauts have already been able to experience, the New Jawbone is a superb Bluetooth headset from Aliph that delivers best-in-class military-grade audio processing technology aptly named “NoiseAssasin” – which eliminates virtually all background noise and provides outstanding voice clarity (hear my New Jawbone or Original Jawbone call quality performance comparison). 

New Jawbone Gold - Side

The New Jawbone is by far my favourite Bluetooth Headset and although it’s not perfect (no BT headset can claim to be) I wouldn’t give it up for any other one.  Additionally, although the New Jawbone is perhaps the most expensive BT headset around there’s no doubt that it nonetheless offers the very best overall price/value and call quality.

The Gold version of the New Jawbone is naturally identical to the Black with the exception that the front of the headset is a light beige/gold color, the leather covered earloop is cream and the body as well as earbud are both brown.

New Jawbone Gold - On Ear

I have to admit that before receiving the headset I thought that the Gold color would appeal primarily to women but after wearing it on my own ear I find it more discreet than the Black model as it more closely approaches natural skin tones.

New Jawbone Gold - Kit

As before, the New Jawbone Gold also offers an excellent and very complete accessory kit (pictured above) which includes a USB charging cable, a USB wall charger, a set of three earbuds (sized S, M, L) and four earloops (two leather and two plastic with steel tips).

Overall, it’s no wonder that over 80% of Treo and Centro owners of the New Jawbone have rated it as Excellent or Very Good – it’s a very light, small, robust and very comfortable headset that offers best-in-class noise cancellation technology.  It’s not cheap but I personally feel that you won’t find a better option.

Having said this, if your budget does not allow for such a purchase I would instead recommend either a refurbished Motorola H700 or the BlueAnt Z9i (the Z9i also offers good noise cancellation technology but at a lower price).

Separately, if you’re looking for essential accessories for your smartphone here are my recommendations below.

6 Essential Centro Accessories

  1. Centro screen protectors: easy protection for your delicate touchscreen.
  2. Centro stereo adapter: essential if you want to listen to music on the go using a standard 3.5mm headset of your choice.
  3. Retractable Sync & Charge Cable: simple, extremely practical with the retractable system that avoids the mess of cable and terrific value.
  4. Microfiber Cleaning Cloth: keep it in your pocket every day and use it to quickly wipe those smudges and face oils from your touchscreen.
  5. SanDisk MobileMate SD+ Reader: if like me you cannot live without a high-capacity memory card then I can’t more highly recommend this small and light pocket card reader.
  6. Centro Stylus

Andrew... I see that you have a bit of stubble.
Any idea how the new Jawbone would work with sideburns and a full beard? Would the hair keep the jaw sensor away from the face too much? From what I've heard, the new Jawbone is a great BT headset, but my hairy face is under orders from the wife to NOT be shaven! What can I say, she likes the fur!

I got the new Jawbone and while it's much more comfortable, my listeners have a lot of trouble hearing me in the car. The noise cancelation is SO aggressive that it also apparently cuts out speech frequencies, at least if you have a baritone voice range. Also, the invisible buttons that either change the volume or cut off your call are confusing and not easily manipulable when you're driving. So. . I want to like this thing, but so far, I'm finding the plantronics earpieces easier and clearer.

Duane - yes, the Jawbone must be in contact with the skin on your face. A little stubble like mine is fine but a full beard will unfortunately interfere with the Jawbone's performance.

Dave - you should consider resetting your new Jawbone. First delete the Jawbone Bluetooth profile from your Treo/Centro and soft reset your smartphone. Then just press and hold the Jawbone power button while inserting the unit into its USB charging cable and then release button.

This will reset your Jawbone to factory settings and after pairing it again with your smartphone it should work fine. If you continue to have problems please contact Jawbone's customer services on 1-877-254-7426 as they are extremely helpful.

I hope this helps.

Cheers, A.
