  • Fashionable design wear, with buttonless and comfortable fit on my ear with/without earloop*
  • Light weight mean I can wear longer on my ear. lesser pain on ear,
  • 4.5 hour(s) talk time compesate with the shortest charge time. (Charged 30 mins, off you go!)
  • No more crawling on floor for wall charger - I can charge my Jawbone headset via USB on my computer or notebook. (or via the wall charger)
  • Multipoint Technology, allow me easily to switch from my computer (communication software like skpe) and mobile phone
Note: *Plantronics Voyager Pro has a bulky rubber arch which could rub the glasses wearers
