Fast forward to now. Recently I've been testing Jabra's Talk 55 which is almost identical in appearance... I have yet to find a difference. And while the Eclipse had excellent performance, the Talk 55 is even better. Highlights include:
- Crystal Clear calls (w/ HD voice)… and 2 microphones
- Noise Cancelling (adv. Tech for clear/noise free calls)
- Up to 3 hours of battery life (10 hours w/ charging case)
- Stream from your phone… (music, podcasts, and GPS direction)
- Voice Control… (1 tap access to Siri and Google Assist.)
- Lightweight design… (Stylish, supreme comfort, weighs 5.5g)
Is it worth the upgrade. I think so. As clear and rich the sound quality was on the Jabra Eclipse, I would estimate the Jabra Talk 55 to be even 50% better - and better both ways. Plus, the ability to recharge the headset off the base without plugging back into the wall is my favorite new feature, and I've found the 1 tap Siri recall to be extremely helpful.
