These used to be great but now they suck. Since they require a computer program to configure and they disabled it you are out of luck. Old and buggy firmware always disconnects and unpairs midway. They really took a great product and threw it in the trash. Have several of these and the icon ones as well. All are the same in terms issues

I'd second this. I have had several ERA headsets, and loved them for their sound quality, long-wearing comfort, and noise cancellation (I used to wear mine while riding my bike in the city, and people usually couldn't tell I wasn't in an office or at my house). They released a new model, and immediately made it impossible to update the firmware on the old ones. I also bought the replacement ERA (ERA slim?), which was on par with a $3 special, including poor audio quality, reduced battery life, removal of some nice features, cheaper build and switch quality, and a new, uncomfortable earpiece. It felt like it was engineered by the business department to increase margins at the expense of everything else.
Customer support was poor, and is now nonexistent. If dailysteals will replace it for 90 days, you have a good shot of getting a good one, but know that things like text-to-speech (for annoucing callers by name) won't work because Jawbone chose designed obsolescence. If they still worked, and Jawbone still supported them, I'd pay $100+ to replace mine. FWIW, I still use my ~8 year old ERA almost every day, but the new one went in the trash long ago.

Some of the best BT headsets ever made, too bad the company got greedy/lazy/etc...

So as only an occasional user, what are some reasonably good replacement options?

People report good results with the Blue Parrot ones, and I've had reasonable success with the current Jabra models. As for bargains, this one is ~90% off retail, and if the batteries are decent, probably still a good buy. I didn't mean to indicate that they were to be avoided, just that there was some functionality that was being intentionally kept from users due to the software/firmware incompatibilities. This one is also super comfortable, and gets 4+ hours of use on a battery, which is competitive even by modern standards.

Why would you want to hold the phone in the car or at home? Plus using a headset means less radiation next to your head while talking.

Hello. The link you provided does not state anything about a "90-day warranty." Instead, it shows, "Warranty: One Year Warranty."

jawbone does not support battery replacement programs for their earpieces ... even at $15 it will be in the junk bin soon enough when it no longer holds a charge... especially since refurbs likely have a used battery. just my 2 cents.
I would loose mine before the battery goes out. So not a biggie...lol

already own a jabra motion and a plantronic 5200, should i buy this?
I have the Plantronics M70 and like it a lot. MANY years ago I had the Voyager (older than 5200) that I liked, but I use the M70 several times a week for the past year without issues. It could be worth it to spend a little more for a company that is still around.

Jabra products are nice when they work. Which is very rarely.

They came up with a good idea and f'd it up big time.

I remember when Jawbones were the best bluetooth headsets competing very well with Plantronics.

You're right, I see more people walking around with their phone in their hand a foot from their head on speakerphone yelling instead.

I use one of these, but do need a new one.

Any comments on how this is?
Daily Steals: crooks, misrepresent product and condition of merch they sell and won't correct it.

Jawbone: out of business, but used to make decent hardware IMO

Damn I'm old... Had no idea jawbone went out of business. Had tried a few headphones recently that claimed noise cancelation but people could still hear road noise...

What are some good alternatives. Willing to pay since I've more than accumulated enough crappy Bluetooth headsets to pay for a good one.

Edit :just got the Jabra freeway. Not a headset but if it works well in the car it's what I need, as a law was recently passed restricting touching your phone while driving.

because bluetooth is integrated with the car now.
and because people would rather text.
