For a long time, I’ve been looking for a new bluetooth headset. And, I
haven’t been able to part with my Motorola HT820′s. I love the HT820′s
comfort and range but they aren’t your everyday walk-and-talk headset.
This super sleek, clean headset is probably the most simple device I’ve ever
used. There’s only one button. After having used it for a while now, I do
wish they would’ve included a volume rockers. However, I’m not sure how that
would compromise the current experience. Which leads into best part of this
The comfort of this device is second to none. The small size and simplicity
of it makes it very lite to carry in your ear. Often when I’m wearing my
Icon, I forget that I have it on! Each Icon package comes with multiple ear
piece attachments allowing the ‘wearer’ to really get the most out of the
The Icon comes with Jawbone’s ‘military-grade NoiseAssassin’. While the
name sounds like something out of a comic book, you and whomever you’re
talking with will enjoy agreat conversation. The noise reduction technology
works perfect in all situations. Even with a bit of wind, the sound quality
in and out is amazing.
Jawbone has built into their website a hub of sorts allowing you to
customize your Icon. With different personalities and apps, you can make it
sound like Superman is right there in your headset helping you dial your
favorite friend with a quick touch of the button. Along with a few other
paid services, you’re able to tailor your Icon to what makes it ‘yours’.
While the Icon has great comfort and sound quality, I really felt like it
was lacking in all the little areas. For example, while using the device at
home, I noticed I was unable to walk around without encountering some sort
of interference. Just being one floor directly beneath the device I noticed
problems with the connection. Also, the built-in functionality isn’t really
comparable to other devices. From my experience with the Icon, I was unable
to do voice dialing or tell it what song I wanted to listen to. And, to be
honest, the custom voice applications you can install on the device get
This device is perfect for those that are just looking for a headset that
answer calls, make calls and play a little bit of music with your device at
your side. It’s more for those concerned with comfort rather than
functionality. Being in same price range as other devices like the Blueant
Q2, the limited ranged and built in functionality really limits what you can
do with your Icon and puts it a step behind other devices on the market.
