I obtained a couple Jabra products to test out and have been using them on projects – both of the technical, professional variety and around the house – for the past 3 years and they are perfect for the hands-free user. For this review, I'm going to discus my favorite of the two – the Jabra Eclipse one ear wireless headset.
This one is my favorite because it's just one ear with no chord. The instructions say “for the right ear” but I can tell you this product works fine and comfortably in either ear. I prefer to do calls in my left ear and listen to music in my right ear so I've used extensively in both and it's just as comfortable and listenable in either ear. I've conducted hundreds of conference calls with this bluetooth ear piece and every time I tell the individual or individuals on the other end of the call that I'm using a wireless headset and I ask if they can ear me ok. Every time they say I'm coming through crystal clear like I'm in the room with them.
I also use this device daily to listen to music from my phone and iPods wirelessly to listen to music while I do household tasks and maintenance. I even used it extensively when I was building my kids outdoor play set / swing set and our large chicken run, hen house and raised garden area. Holds a good charge – even after 3 years of usage – and always connects easily and stays connected.
If you manage project and teams remotely, you need this item. If you like doing household projects and listening to music or podcasts at the same time, you need this item. Either way, you need this item.
