When the JawBone first arrived, the first thing I noticed after I got it out of the box... was, well... the box!
It is beautifully packaged. The actual device itself propped up on a pedestal. The rest of the accessories and instructions stored down below.
The colors and design of the package, and indeed the whole product is quite nice. It's a great design to look at, and I give that 2 thumbs up.
The Jawbone comes with 4 extra earpieces, AND 4 extra ear inserts. This is critical in ensuring a proper fit.
I must admit it took me a good 5 to 10 minutes to get a proper fit. You'll need to try out many combinations of earpieces and earbuds before you get one that fits just right. At least I did. But once it fit nicely it was quite comfortable.
The sound quality is quite clear. Maybe because I'm one of those blackberry users that is not used to wearing an earpiece (I'm a big fan of speakerphone), having a speaker right inside my ear was quite different, but nice. No problems with sound quality, or with the person on the other end hearing me properly. The device works as well as it looks.
Note: We will be giving the Jawbone a thorough user test in the coming weeks. We want to put it through its paces to see how well it performs over time. We'll also show you how to set up and use the Jawbone in case you want to pick one up for yourself. So stay tuned for part 2 of this review!

Some of the great accessories that help make the Jawbone so good. 4 different earpieces and 4 extra ear buds for that custom fit... the USB cable and AC Adapter.
