The new Era headset is also designed to work with Siri and Google Now voice assistant technologies. The headset is available with a small charging carry case that gives the headset up to ten hours of use. The headset also has a new earbud and unique audio port designed to improve the audio quality.
"With ERA, we've taken what we've learned from more than a decade of research and development in design, engineering and audio, and used it to completely reinvent the earpiece for the wearable era, based on how people are living today," said Travis Bogard, vice president of product management and strategy at Jawbone. "We're missing out on the emotional connection of voice because phone calls on today's large smartphones aren't convenient. Many of us are also looking for a better way to use our phones for background music, podcasts and other content consumption without awkward solutions like one dangling earbud or bulky utility headsets. We designed ERA to blend seamlessly into your life and make interacting with people and our smartphones even easier, all while making the technology nearly disappear."
