All new for 2014, Jawbone is announcing a revamp of their popular ERA Bluetooth headset. Doing probably what Jawbone does best, they’ve managed to make the ERA smaller, more comfortable, and crammed inside better audio and microphone technology. Using what Jawbone calls “Noise Assassin” noise-cancellation technology, callers on the other line should hear you clearer than ever before, even in noisy environments. Audio quality of the headset itself has also been improved, letting the users listen to music or podcasts in stunning clarity (and only one ear, of course).
Jawbone has also released a companion app for the ERA, allowing users to program commands to use with with Google Search/Now (or Siri). It even features a built in locator, should you ever misplace your headset. Pretty handy.
The ERA is available in 4 colors for $100 at the usual electronics retailers, or for $130 for the special charging case bundle that is said to “double” the headsets 4 hours of talk time using a built-in battery.
