Jawbone Era Bluetooth headset gets refreshed

Jawbone is one of the more well know name sin the Bluetooth headset market for smarten users. The company has announced a new version of its Era headset is now available to purchase. The new version of the headset is 42% smaller than previous versions.

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."

The headset is available in several colors and has NoiseAssassin 4.0 tech to remove background noise from conversation, the headset comes in red, blue, bronze, and black colors. The Era headset and the charge case sells for $129.99. The Era headset can be purchased without the case for $99.

At first glance, the Qwerkywriter looks every bit like a typewriter, right down to the holder for your paper. Except look a little bit closer and it’s ...
