Jawbone ICON Review and Giveaway *CLOSED*



Jawbone sent me a Jawbone ICON to review.  I choose the Rogue.  When I received this handsfree headset it was like pitch black in color!  Well it looks that way except when you look at it in the light at an angle, and then you see the deep dark red in it!  It is so beautiful it is mesmerizing!


So I put the Jawbone ICON to the test.  For my job I end up doing a lot of meetings on the phone since I work remote.  This means it is extremely important for me to be able to hear all that is said.  So for the first meeting of the week I setup the ICON to see how well it would work.  Well, it worked great!  The thing I like best is when I use the ICON I could hear the meeting very well and I didn't even have the volume topped out like I had been dealing with before.  What also like is that the voice they have tells you when the battery is low, well it tells you how much battery life you have left which is even better.  It also tells you the number that is calling so you don't have to look at your phone, and the distance you can get with the ICON is ridiculous.  I have been on a call and walked away from my phone to the other side of our house, well not just the other side, but to the basement and the other side and it was just barely starting to get fuzzy!

Jawbone ICON is sleek and stylish.  But the looks aren't going to be what sells the ICON.  The ICON has some great features like its easy on switch, it talks to you, and NoiseAssassin®.

The ICON also has features that you can customize using MyTALK which is really sweet!  You can choose from 6 unique voices in addition to the original one to add to your ICON.  You can also add in some apps to save you some time, like 411 apps.  The best one is the A2DP app that you can add in.  Why is it my favorite?  Well it basically gives you the ability to listen to more things on your phone through the ICON like music, podcasts, turn-by-turn directions, and other audio.  I was so disappointed with my last handsfree that it couldn't do that because I wanted to be able to use it at the gym and other places to listen to my music without it blasting everyone else, or having to deal with the stupid headphone wires that get in the way.

Timbo said...

I'd honestly be using my extra hand to probably make me life a tiny bit more complicated than it surely needs to be :D I find myself multi-tasking enough already while I talk on the phone, so with this, I'd actually be cooking a lot more efficiently without having to have my head cocked the whole time, to hold up the phone :D

Chris said...

My bluetooth died and we don't have the money to buy a new one. I drive almost an hour to work one way, and I use my phone when I drive. So blue tooth is the only way to go. Great contest! Thank You!! :)

I can answer my iPhone and continue inking the comic book job I am on. And while driving, but of course.

Mommy 2 Bears said...

An extra hand would make fixing my hair in the morning easier. I can never seem to roll and dry right. But I would most likely use it for no good like drinking more coffee while typing or signaling to other drivers.

I could definitely use free hands to take care of 4 children's needs. But, Hubby drives 6-8 hours a day and could use this while working. His broke awhile ago and he is using his earpiece and wire gets in the way of driving.

i would keep both hands on the wheel! in cali it is illegal to drive and talk on the phone, and pulling over on an LA fwy to take a call is more dangerous than talking and driving!

If I had an extra hand, I would use it to high five myself. Then, I would have it rub my shoulders and go to the store and pick me up some beer. Actually, a BT Headset would be handy in allowing me to type and use the mouse easier while on the phone. Thanks for the giveaway!

shiloh said...

My daughter injured her neck, and driving has become a real pain, trying to do anything additional is currently out of the question, but this would give her hands free access to her phone.
