Entry Description

The Aliph Jawbone Bluetooth headset solves a ubiquitous problem: giving users the ability to talk on any mobile phone in a loud environment while hearing ? and being heard ? clearly. Aliph Jawbone uses ?Noise Shield technology? which virtually eliminates background noise so calls are clearer. Using a proprietary military-grade noise canceling system, Jawbone continuously adapts to the users? changing environments while also separating the speaker?s voice from other ambient noise, optimizing both incoming and outgoing sound.

While the product solves a problem with cutting edge technology, the challenge was to create the equivalent of a modern accessory for the face, rather than a techno appendage. Comfort, adjustability and aesthetics were primary concerns in the development of the design in order to create a product that functioned beautifully.

Jawbone is the only Bluetooth headset with a voice activity sensor touching the skin of the wearer. Its perforated shield curves to match the outline of the face: the elegant and simple external surfaces transforming a technological object into a personal accessory. The side that touches the wearer, is soft and smooth, made from medical grade plastic, and provides a comfortable feel on the skin.

Jawbone?s functions are ?hidden? under the front and back shield surfaces, yet accessible by lightly pushing on the shield?s surface, minimizing visual clutter. These sealed buttons ensure pure visual and functional simplicity. Jawbone can be worn on either ear. Four different sized and shaped earloops and earbuds are provided to customize fit and feel. Jawbone is the fusing of technology with design, integrating ergonomics with integrity of materials (metal, rubber and medical grade plastic), and minimal intuitive controls.
