For these folks there are are some fashionable headsets out there such as the offerings from Jawbone that put a lot of focus on looks and functionality.


Jawbone has unveiled a new product called the Jambox that is a Bluetooth speaker and hands free system that will work with any Bluetooth device including music phones, computers, and more. The speaker has a pair of drivers and an ultra small dome that claims to make a spectrum of sound almost as wide as the human ear can hear.

The Jambox also has a passive bass radiator and features an airtight enclosure. Jawbone claims that the bass is strong enough to be felt form several feet away. The speaker can be updated with new features via firmware and apps. The speaker has a stainless steel and rubber construction. It will be offered in four designs including Blue Wave, Black Diamond, Grey Hex and Red Dot. Pre-orders are being accepted now at $199 and it will ship on November 16.
