Aliph shrinks, polishes bone-conduction Bluetooth headset

The Register: Women love men with chiselled jawbones, so we’re told, but will the ladies still go for you if they know you’ve made it 50 per cent smaller? Well, if you’re talking about Bluetooth headsets, then the answer is probably yes.

In 2006, manufacturer Aliph introduced the original Jawbone – a Bluetooth headset that uses patented technology to “feel your speech” and distinguish between background noise and your conversation.

The latest model, unimaginatively called the New Jawbone, is 50 per cent smaller than the original, meaning it now weighs just 10g. So-called “faster processing” is also present to help eliminate “unexpected noise bursts,” such as, “Oi! The light’s green!”

Like many other Bluetooth headsets, the new Jawbone has just two buttons, which are positioned on the device’s outer surface and allow users to control all of the headset’s functions.
