Moms are some of the busiest people I know & I’m sure you’d agree. Whether it’s driving kids to school or picking them up from practice, grocery shopping, making dinner… we are always on the go. I don’t know about you, but I rarely have a moment to myself – let alone enough time to have an entire phone conversation. That being said, if you are going to call me, don’t be surprised to hear the chaos of three young children in the background – or at least that used to be the case.
As a self-confessed cell phone junkie (I’ll admit it, I’m addicted to my iPhone, but who isn’t?), I’m always on the lookout for the latest & greatest in cell phone accessories – everything & anything that will make my life just a wee bit easier. General speaking, I’ve never been a huge fan of wireless headsets… the sound quality is never very good, they usually fall out of my ears & the battery always seems to die mid-conversation. Lucky for me, I was recently introduced to the Jawbone ICON.
First of all, the Jawbone ICON is beautiful. I know, I know… it sounds totally silly, it is after all, just a wireless headset, but really & truly they are “oh so pretty.” But don’t worry, the Jawbone ICON isn’t just a beauty, this baby has brains too! The Jawbone ICON can actually talk to you… it’ll whisper “sweet nothing’s” in your ear - such as remaining battery life & caller ID. & If talking alone isn’t enough, you can actually change the very voice that conveys that important information (mine is programmed with this sexy, 007 secret agent type of voice). The Jawbone ICON also comes with an wide array of earbuds (3 fit earbuds, 4 round earbuds & an optional earloop) to ensure a perfect fit – this is one headset that won’t fall out. & I haven’t even mentioned the apps yet… I can listen to music, get turn-by-turn directions or even listen to &/or post to Facebook & Twitter. But the best part about the Jawbone ICON is their NoiseAssassin. “Originally developed for use in tanks & helicopters, Jawbone ICON‘s NoiseAssassin is a proprietary technology that eliminates background noise from mobile phone conversations.” Basically, that’s just a lot of fancy talk that means that the Jawbone ICON literally eliminates background noise, which means, no one (other than you) will hear the screaming kids in the background. How fabulous is that? Don’t believe me? Just give me a call, & you can experience the “peace & quiet” for yourself (at least on your end). Or, you could just watch this video…
So enough of my sales pitch… I really don’t mean to sound so pushy. But when I find something I love, I want to shout it from the rooftops, tell my friends, or share the news with random strangers. Seriously though, I’m dang impressed with the Jawbone ICON & I love, no, make that LOVE that my new wireless headset blocks out all the noise – at least people talking to me on the phone won’t realize the chaos that surrounds me daily.
