The $130 Aliph Jawbone is sleek--to the touch, and in the wearing. To initiate or end a call, or to dial by voice, for example, you press designated areas on the headset, going by touch alone--no buttons are visible on the Jawbone. The audio quality impressed in my hands-on tests: My contacts reported that my voice sounded crisp and clear. And the Jawbone's ability to eliminate background noise was even more impressive.
One person who saw me wearing the black Jawbone deemed it too manly. But looks aren't everything, and the Jawbone does its job so well that I couldn't care less about this apparent manliness!
