Last month, we saw it passing the FCC hurdle, and now it’s here! It’s the Jawbone 2, not a headset but an earwear. Those are the words Aliph, the maker of the stylish headset uses, and they’re right on target. The new Jawbone headset rocks! It is 50% smaller than the original award-winning Jawbone, and features noise elimination technology (NoiseAssassin) that provides even better voice quality than the original in a smaller and more ergonomic package!
Jawbone’s NoiseAssassin technology literally feels your speech with its patented Voice Activity Sensor (VAS). The Jawbone headset uses the VAS to distinguish the sound of your voice from ambient noise with incredible accuracy and then uses proprietary Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms to subtract the noise so only the sound of your voice comes through.
Don’t know about you, but I’m sold. The Jawbone 2 is available for $129.99 at AT&T retail stores and at www.jawbone.com or www.wireless.att.com. Few more images, including size comparison of Jawbone 2 and the original Jawbone (from Gizmodo), follow after the jump.
