Everyone’s Jawing about the New Aliph Jawbone



aliphjawbone3 My preferred BlueTooth headseat is the Aliph Jawbone 2. The folks at Aliph have just released the latest version called the Jawbone Prime. In addition to some cosmetic enhancements they’ve done some work under the hood as well.




The cosmetic stuff features some new colors in a limited edition that they are calling Ear Candy but the juice is in how they’ve improved the already excellent technology. They’ve tweaked up the NoiseAssassin technology that allows you to talk in noisy environments. For those who find that the little nub that rests on your cheekbone that activates the technology (called the Voice Activity Sensor) might not make consistent contact, they are rolling out the Acoustic Voice Activity Detector. If the device detects that you don’t have the nub resting on your cheekbone, this noise cancelling technology supposedly kicks in. They’ve also improved the technology that cuts down on wind noise.

The Jawbone Prime will set you back $129, has 4.5 hours of Talk Time, standby time of 8+ days and now includes MultiPoint which will allow you to switch between as many as 8 BlueTooth devices without repairing.

    Of course they released a new series, with awesome new features. I just bought a 2nd generation jawbone a couple weeks ago. Still, cynicism aside it does seem pretty cool. Not sure I personally like the vibrant colors. I like mine to just blend in, I try to remember to disable the led whenever I use it. I would like to get my hands on one of the new earbuds that allow you to use it without an earloop. I wonder if they are backwards compatible.

    You can purchase the new earbuds from the Aliph site for 5 dollars. I ordered them and they are much better than the stock earbuds. I believe they even ship them for free to current users.

    I also have the Jawbone 2 which I got about 2 months ago and I really like how well you can hear the other person and how well the other person can hear you.
