Introducing Jawbone PRIME Bluetooth Headset

It has been one year since Aliph announced what was referred to simply as the “new” Jawbone or "Jawbone2" and now they have announced the followup, which has been named the Jawbone PRIME™.  If you remember back, the “Jawbone2" took a much nicer appearance as compared to the slightly bulky original Jawbone, however the PRIME™ has retained much of the same look and size focusing more on the technology.

As far as any external changes, while the overall size is just about the same the external pattern has changed just slightly. Aside from that, another noticeable difference (aside from the newly brightened colors) is the lack of earpiece.  Aliph has gone in favor of new ergonomic earbuds, which are noted as being able to “keep the Jawbone in place without an earloop for most wearers.” Of course, they have still included an earpiece in the package just in case.

The Best Just Got Better

NoiseAssassin 2.0 Sets New Audio Standard
Aliph, with Jawbone PRIME™, has once again obsoleted itself with the latest in NoiseAssassin technology which delivers better noise elimination performance, an integrated digital approach to wind reduction, and a fail-safe solution if the Voice Activity Sensor (VAS) does not touch the user’s face.

Jawbone PRIME Works Beautifully in Wind
Aliph’s world-class engineers are heavily focused on solving wind for users in every day usage scenarios by leveraging the physical advantages of the proprietary sensor coupled with new Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms. Jawbone PRIME™ handles wind up to 10 mph so users can have intelligible conversations while maintaining the natural sound of the user’s voice. This innovation represents a critical step towards solving wind interference which has historically been a physical problem that has plagued the industry.

New Fit Options Customized for Every Ear
Every ear is unique, like a fingerprint. Jawbone PRIME™ introduces a wide array of customization options, enabling the user to find the most comfortable fit. With three round Earbuds, three New Fit Earbuds and an optional earloop, the user can identify what works best for the individual ear. For the majority of users, the New Fit Earbuds render the earloop completely unnecessary. 
Alongside PRIME™, Jawbone bring you EARCANDY, a vibrant set of colors that reflect the Spring 2009 fashion trends in which bright colors are made approachable and wearable.
Additionally, the Jawbone Prime also offers support for Bluetooth 2.1+EDR as well as 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0. Support multipoint where you pairs with up to 8 devices, 2 simultaneous connections. The Jawbone Prime also has up to 4.5 hours of talk time, up to 8 days on standby and weighs just 10 grams.
