Swap between your internet and mobile calls with ease with the Jabra UC Supreme

Commuting to and from work every day I can't help but notice the plethora of Bluetooth headsets and how much time we spend on talking on the phone. Over the years, I've used quite a few that range in size, shape, and features. For those looking to simplify their accessories and easily switch back and forth from their mobile and Internet calls there is the Jabra Supreme UC.

The Jabra UC Supreme was designed to be portable and lightweight. It easily folds up to fit in your backpack or purse thanks to the convenience carrying case included in the package.

Features

  • Wireless freedom for mobile and internet calls
  • Nano Bluetooth USB adapter included - Jabra LINK 360 Bluetooth®
  • MultiuseTM - Manage PC and mobile calls simultaneously
  • Active Noise Cancelation technology - removes ambient noise for the headset user
  • Noise Blackout 3.0 dual microphone technology - reduces background noise significantly
  • HD Voice Technology
  • Voice Control and Voice Guidance for hands-free operation - spoken Caller ID, battery, and connection status
  • Flip-Boom arm - makes it easy to activate and carry
  • A2DP technology for streaming music, multimedia, gps announcements, etc.
  • Comfort ear cushions for an all-day perfect fit
  • Car charger included
  • Up to 6 hours of talk time and 15 days of standby time
  • Weighs: 0.64 ounces
  • Dimensions: 3.53 x 1.18 x 0.86 inches (W x L x H)

Design and Comfort

As a person with not only long hair but someone who wears glasses on a daily basis, owning a headset that is comfortable and able to stay put with repetitive motion is important. I admit the Jabra Supreme is rather flimsy in this area. While it does rest on my ears well without falling off, it is extremely loose and prone to moving around with each movement made.

The adjustable ear hook, however, only moves in a vertical direction and doesn't offer a secure fit when placed around your ear. Don't get me wrong, the headset is extremely comfortable to wear and doesn't weigh down on your ear. The material is soft and won't give you an earache as with comparable in-the-ear models.

If you are looking for a small headset to go unnoticed by passersby then this is not for you. On this model they've included a collapsible boom mic, which not only serves as the On/Off switch but contributes to its bulky size when extended.

Sound and Performance

The Jabra Supreme features Noise Blackout and Active Call Cancelation technology. Calls were clear without me sounding like a robot on the other end. In some areas the noise-cancellation was absolutely perfect, blocking out the distractions of my busy environment even along the bustling streets of Manhattan. Noise level does play a factor when trying to distinguish your words with voice commands. In extremely noisy areas, I found placing the microphone closer to my cheek increased its ability to understand me correctly.

Jabra Link 

Finally there is the ability to work with your computer. The Supreme comes with their Jabra Link which connects via USB and then automatically pairs. It not only allows you to stream your music through your headset (or listen to live CB broadcasts), but also converse via Skype or other internet programs with the same clarity as on calls. As it connects to 2 devices simultaneously, the Jabra Supreme it instantly goes back and forth from calls on my BlackBerry to my PC.

Overall, the Jabra UC Supreme is a durable and solid headset. Some may not like the larger boom microphone but it is a pleasure to wear all day without discomfort and offers excellent Bluetooth range. While listening to the CB Big Brother live feeds, I was able to walk around my apartment without disconnecting.

I have this headset as well. I agree with you that it doesn't fit as snuggly as I'd like. Other than that, I think it's a great product.
