Amazingly elegant and designed to be awesome.
I’m obsessed with Bluetooth headsets. I find myself always looking for the next greatest thing. This might be due to how much I enjoy seeing the new technology or because of how hard I am on headsets. I find myself breaking them quite often and over the years the cabinets in my office have become a makeshift graveyard for Bluetooth. Thanks to the awesome team at Jabra I’ve been introduced to what I think is the best Bluetooth headset to date – the Jabra Eclipse.
The Jabra Eclipse is designed to be stylish and discreet at the same time. The headset combines comfort and power in this tiny, sleek earpiece. Its sound is unrivaled and the headset features a premium music-grade speaker. Plus, it has HD voice technology, which enables the user to enjoy conversations over the phone as if the other person were in the same room. Something that is a little foreign to me is the fact that this headset has no buttons on it. When you want to use the headset, you simply double tap it and it connects.
The Eclipse comes equipped with a portable charging/storage case that resembles a smooth rock. It’s oval and is very easy to slip in and out of your pocket. This charging case is unique in both design and function. The headset snaps securely into the cradle and is held in place by a magnet. When you take the headset out of the case, it connects to your phone within a few seconds. This is a very welcome feature as you don’t have to worry about repairing every time you charge. And, to turn the headset off, you simply place the it back in the cradle. It’s a wonderful accessory and I’m really glad to see this becoming a trend with Jabra headsets.
My favorite feature of the Eclipse is how lightweight it is. Weighing in at only 5.5 grams, it’s Jabra’s lightest Bluetooth headset ever. With the way it’s been designed I don’t have to have anything wrapped around my ear; it fits inside one ear and blocks ambient noise extremely well. With as good as the call quality is I believe the music-grade speaker is even better. I’ve been using my Eclipse to listen to podcasts, stream music, and take calls. Because of its weight and form, I can wear it for hours without it causing me any discomfort.
I keep the charging case with me for extra battery life. Jabra reports that it will provide between 7-10 hours of use by charging it in the cradle. I have found this to be true, but it does depend on what you’re doing and how much you’re using the device. According to Jabra’s marketing materials, the headset should have 3 days of standby time. Unfortunately, I can’t really speak about the battery’s standby time because I’ve been actively using the headset virtually nonstop since I received it.
The Jabra Eclipse is a really slick Bluetooth headset. If you have problems using other Bluetooth headsets because of their bulk or fit on your ear, I would urge you to try the Eclipse. With it’s superior sound quality and lightweight design, you won’t be sorry.
