_

Design:
"Something is obviously very wrong with the design or manufacturing of the New Era--and Jawbone doesn't seem to be terribly interested in addressing it based on the number of complaints that I've seen here, on Amazon, etc."

Fit

Fit:
"Also the fit is not as good as the Jabra Stealth."

_
"I have small ears, so it has been hard to find one that fits."

"The worst part was the way it fit(or didn't ) in my ear."

Hook

Hook:

_
"The painful part is the tip that hooks into the upper ear cartilage (everyone's built a bit differently!"
_
"My previous headset Etymotic Research er89-2 etyBLU2 Wireless Bluetooth Headset was okay, but the earpieces didn't last, and the ear hook broke within the first month."
_
"I don't like wearing ear hooks, and the Q3 is very awkward and uncomfortable without it."

"They hook up easily to your phone."
_
"But this little beauty hooks easily into my ear, fits comfortably and snugly, and feels secure enough to do cartwheels or jumping jacks...Seriously, I tried!"
_
"If it had come with an ear hook that wouldn't have been a problem."
_
"(It's not like the sports earphone hooks that go outside around your ears - these gels hooks inside your ear) Comfort is not bad especially since it's light and it definitely won't fall off with the hook."
_
"This one hooks securely INSIDE your ear; it just looks nicer and makes it easy to carry along with your keys, whether you don't need to always be using this."

Light

Light:
"It didn't really matter because I noticed that the light ring would fail to alternate in the red and white colors signaling it was ready for pairing."
_
"It keeps disconnecting and connecting the red light doesn't come on when it's charging Very disappointed in this product"
_
"Because the ERA (2014 version) is so light and tiny- making this happen is a bit more challenging."
_
"The new Era is very small (prone to get lost) and extremely light weight (not durable or ruggedly constructed) and there is an obvious issue with the plastic casing as mine easily cracked open and upon closing it up, the top portion left a crease in the plastic."
_
"Very comfortable and light when wearing."
_
"They're both super light earpieces with good noise correction and great sound, but overall, I give the edge to the ERA."
_
"The charging case makes it last the day though, it's super small and light weight, and the ear gel is comfortable."
_
"Finally afew more bells a whistles would be nice like voice answer and maybe a dedicated mute buttom, but otherwise I would definitely recommend the jawbone ERA, especially those who want a light weight, easy to use, stylish bluetooth, for a couple of hours between charges."

"The headset is very light and comfortable."

Listening

Listening:
"(Its a problem when you using all time this gadget listening music or have many talks, but if not it is not a big complexity."
_
"My office colleague has complained the same and has stopped using it except for listening on Conference calls."
_
"one of the posts here customer support told him her to put the BT the same side as where your phone is, that is unacceptable in itself but still I tried that and still having issues, I'm listening to Pandora radio and they all stutter!"
_
"I do not recommend this for listening to music podcasts...but it is possible and bearable."
_
"On the upside, the size, fit and speaker are outstanding, however, if the recipients of your call complains of poor quality and missed words the headset becomes a headphone for listening to music or podcasts and there are many better options available for that."
_
"I use the headset extensively for listening to books on my phone, and to make them play it is great to be able to just push the button three times... but if I don't push it just right three times it thinks I pushed it twice and redials my last number instead, which can be embarrassing in the middle of the night!"
_
"I love that it allows listening to streaming content."
_
"Sound is comparable my best headphones that I use for listening to music. The ear insert stays on securely."
_
"Another phenominal part of this bluetooth is that if ou enjoy listening to music or books adjusting the volume to mach your surroundings can be dificult and tedious."
_
"I primarily use my bluetooth for descretely listening to audio books, so being able to play and pause with very little effort is a must the ERA provides this with a single click for the pause and you simply tripple click for the resume."

Microphone

Microphone:
"Microphone: I wasn't able to tell a difference."

Noise

Noise:

Packaging

Packaging:
"Unfortunately I threw away the packaging, so I'm stuck with it until I can find a better one."
_
"The headset arrived with the packaging ripped open and re-taped, it was missing the Charger, which was half the order (go figure) and the headset had no battery life on it at all, and even after charging it for hours would not take a full charge."
_
"I'm disappointed that they didn't include a wall plug in the package and I ended up using the old one."
_
"The device arrived quickly with all accessories and was packaged well."
_
"The entire package is quite small and fits comfortably in a pocket."

"It works as expected, it's comfortable, after I bought the extra ear piece package, because I like to use my left ear and I needed the small ear piece; the ERA is great, I love it."

Performance:
"Unfortunately does not perform that well."
_
"Disappointed with its performance."
_
"After more than three months, the device is still a failure and does not perform as well as much less expensive headsets."
_
"This may help fix performance issues that a Soft Reset is unable to fix."
_
"I will admit that Jawbone was very accommodating by giving me a replacement unit, so 5 stars for replacement policy, but 1 (weak) star for personal usability, and 2 stars for performance."
_
"Performance was fine, but not exceptional."
_
"So, I wanted another Jawbone device because I was really happy with the noise assassin 2.5 performance with background noise and wind."

Plug:
"The ERA is a great looking ear plug but a terrible bluetooth headset."
_
"I regularly have to charge this at least twice a day, which can be annoying if I don't have the time to plug it in."
_
"I'm disappointed that they didn't include a wall plug in the package and I ended up using the old one."
_
"Not sure of problem sound is great caller pound and clear even voice call is easy as well as connecting to phone and all you have to is press the back to find minutes best part is how they made the ear plug no more latching around your ear shaped like a ear so fits in perfect with no discomft which others had had barely at time noticed was there and in my car with sunroof open and windows down didn't effect my sound of hearing or others gearing me take it as you will but I think is a great one and I had 3 others wishing all the time I had this one easy to charge to make you mind and you gave a question write but I really recommend it"

Price

Price:

_
"Did not work well at all and when I called up Jawbone and told them the price of the unit they told me it must have been a refurbished unit I bought from 3rd party dealer through Amazon."
_
"And at this it fails miserably especially at this price."
_
"I usually wind up using my cheap MP3 earbuds due to the complaints."
_
"Luckily I already have one from my other jawbone headsets, but I think it's ridiculous that a headset at this price only comes with the USB charger, which is why I gave it 4 stars."
_
"Plainly, they created a problem and a solution with the battery addition for extra money."
_
"Great price"
_
"The price was great too."
_
"GREAT Price, Love this item."
_
"Advantage: ERAPrice: Price can vary over time, so double check, but the Eclipse currently sells for more than twice the price of the ERA."

Speaker:

_
"Terrible sound quality (both speaker and mic), uncomfortable, low battery life, etc."

Support

Support:
"After eliminating all possible things I was doing wrong, I contacted Support."
_
"I talked with Jawbone customer support on the phone months ago, as I was very displeased that my cool new headset was not playing nice with my cool new smartphone, and Jawbone customer support was well aware of the problem (despite not officially mentioning or confirming it anywhere on their official forums)."
_
"If you're using a Note 4, I would expect this to be a complete dealbreaker for you, just due to the incompatibility, but for those who use other smartphones, is this a company you want to trust for compatibility with your device, and also support, if something goes wrong over the next several years of your purchase? "
_
"My issue with this item is actually with the company Jawbone itself, specifically their terrible support and customer service."
_
"Each time I experienced a problem I contacted customer support and got the same surprised response: Wow, really, that's unusual....etc."
_
"Great Support"
_
"Since I paid for Sunday delivery I was pleasantly surprised that Jawbone support has extended hours."
_
"Jawbone's technical support has always been pretty bad but now its just nonexistent - which might actually be an improvement."

"Batter life is a little short and sometimes if you don't fit the device in your ear properly called parties complain that they can't hear you, or your voice is very faint."
_
"The voice through the headset is very clear."
_
"Ability to accesss phone's voice commands with a touch of a button is very nice."

"Pros:NoiseAssassin does a great job isolating your voice from background soundsSmall and light weightCons:Battery life (glad I got the model that comes with the charge case)Notes:If youre wondering if the charge case is needed to charge the device, it is not."

Weight

Weight:
"The new Era is very small (prone to get lost) and extremely light weight (not durable or ruggedly constructed) and there is an obvious issue with the plastic casing as mine easily cracked open and upon closing it up, the top portion left a crease in the plastic."
_
"Lightweight and comfortable."
_
"The size and weight are great, you can't even feel it once it's in place."
_
"The charging case makes it last the day though, it's super small and light weight, and the ear gel is comfortable."
_
"Good: Small, lightweight, good volume, stream music, sync effortlessly, the customization software is great."
_
"Finally afew more bells a whistles would be nice like voice answer and maybe a dedicated mute buttom, but otherwise I would definitely recommend the jawbone ERA, especially those who want a light weight, easy to use, stylish bluetooth, for a couple of hours between charges."
