3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and pairs easily but sound is too muffled 25 Nov. 2011

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I recorded part of the video using the headset itself, so you can hear what it sounds like. The sound is okay, but all things considered I just find it too muffled for my tastes. Considering the comparatively hefty price, I cannot recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars Actually 8 Oct. 2011
By Brad M. Cassagne - Published on Amazon.com
A little background first:
I've used a Plantronics Voyager Pro for a while now and forgot it at home so decided to try one of these. First let me say my wife is VERY picky about background noise or wind noise when I'm talking to her. I tried a few headsets before the Plantronics. The other day I got the Motorola S10 thinking it might work for music and voice. After being fussed at for 10 min about all the noise in a QUIET grocery store, I knew I would have to return the Motorola.

The Jabra Extreme2:
The sound quality on the Extreme2 is very good. I tried jogging with it while talking and the wife did complain some about wind noise and traffic noise from the busy road I was on, but said it was much better than the Motorola S10 had beein in the quiet grocery store. I can hear loud and clear on my end also. The Extreme2 is very light and comfortable. I have heard some other people complain about the comfort but I have no issues other than after an hour or 2 there is some slight discomfort but just barely.

Music and GPS voice, etc will play through the Extreme2. This is a bonus. Everything is mono of course but I use some apps that I like to be able to hear feedback from. A jogging app for one.

I will say I've never been too impressed by the noise cancelling of bluetooth devices in general, though this seems to be one of the better ones. I think the Voyager Pro still has it beat by a little, which IMO is because of the boom mic being closer to your mouth.

Cons:
I have noticed while listening to music the sound will cut out for about 1 second every minute or so. This is not a big deal but is a little annoying. So far I haven't noticed the problem during calls but I suspect that I will. Also, It's probably not an issue for most but you can't talk on this device while it is charging. Some people have complained about problems maintaining connection. I did have trouble with it one time after charging. The headset and my phone both kept saying no device found, but eventually it worked. Hopefully this does not become a major problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great overall, but I wish Siri liked it, too 20 Jan. 2012
By famousdavis - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
QUICK SUMMARY: Great overall performance, features, and comfort make this a great buy; I just wish Siri (iPhone 4S) would get along with this headset, too.

***** WHAT I LIKE:

- COMFORT. I don't wear any Bluetooth headset for more than an hour or two. For that period of time, this Jabra Extreme 2 headset was plenty comfortable for me.

- BATTERY LEVEL. The built-in talking menu is a useful feature. I like that I can find out how much battery life is left by pressing a button and listening to voice-menu give a battery level (high-med-low, not a percentage). The battery life was on par with most any other Bluetooth headset I've used, including the earlier version of this Extreme.

- WIND NOISE REDUCTION. The ability of this device to screen out wind is much improved over older Bluetooth headsets I've used. I like riding a bike or walking briskly. I've used some headsets where *any* wind noise caused a muffle or crackle on the other end of of a phone call. With this Extreme 2, if I can hear wind in my ear, then the other caller will hear crackle/muffling, too, but if I have no discernible wind blowing in my ear, the other caller won't have a problem, either. When riding my bike, if I ride at a leisurely pace, no troubles. Brisk walking causes no wind noise trouble, either (provided it's not a windy day!).

- EASY PARING. It was very easy to pair this device with my iPhone 4S.

- STREAMING PANDORA or AUDIBLE. I used it to stream Pandora on my iPhone when I wasn't talking on the phone. The sound, obviously, isn't great and it's only coming through one of my ears, but it passes time. Using it with Audible audio books would be a great choice, too.

***** WHAT I DID NOT LIKE:

- On my iPhone 4S, I couldn't get iPhone 4S's Siri to work properly with this headset. Pressing the call button on the Extreme would launch Siri, but Siri wasn't hearing my voice commands through the headset. Maybe it's a setup issue I could overcome, or maybe it just doesn't work that way. Either way, I didn't like that I can't use voice commands given to Siri to execute through this device.

CONCLUSION: Great headset choice if you don't need to use Siri with it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very poor on transmitting voice quality 29 Dec. 2012
By Charles W. Rolllins - Published on Amazon.com
When you receive a call, the voice on the other end is crystal clear and no noise or anything: that could not be better. Where it falls extremely short is when you are the one doing the talking. Everyone said my voice was too muffled like I had a mouthful of bubble gum coupled with a very annoying echo: like I was in a barrel. I installed the firmware update directly from Jabra and that made the problem worse. Now besides being muffled and a loud echo around my voice, I now sound like a robot.

When I called Jabra technical support the technician had the same robotic sound and voice was very muffled so he must have been using their own product.

I do not recommend this product at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impresive Bluetooth headset with better than average noise cancelling. 23 Nov. 2011
By Method2Madness - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
DISCLAIMER: Although this was given to me through Vine to review, unlike other questionable "reviewers", I actually take the time to USE the product or READ the book. So whatever score/review the product gets, it's absolutely earned. At no time is a product given a particular review or rating simply because I fear loosing Vine status. That's not how the Vine program operates.

Anyhoo, onto the review:

I recently shopped for a bluetooth headset for my Samsung Nexus S 4G after my previous headset, a Plantronics Voyager PRO HD was stolen out of my car. I looked at local Brick and Morter stores and was initially torn between the Plantronics Savor M1100 and this Jabra Extreme 2. I did not see many reviews for the Jabra, and eventually I decided to buy the Plantronics model. It fit fine, and the volume was loud enough, however, I found it to sound a bit muffled or tinny. I was told that I sounded clear on the other end. I noticed that with the Plantronics, I could not hear if a text message came in, or was sent. The only audible sounds through the headsets were calls or streaming music. I liked the fact that I could answer calls simply by saying Answer. However, I found the placement of buttons kind of fumbly, and I frequently pressed the voice call button while trying to adjust the headset. Also the volume button did not allow for quick volume up or down, but rather you'd have to go through the whole cycle of low to loud, which I found cumbersome. Lo and behold, I had the opportunity to test the very headset I was looking at in stores, the Jabra Extreme 2!

I liked the fact that the Jabra Extreme 2 comes with a car charger, mini usb adapter, and a wall charger. The cord to the wall charger is short, but it's not a deal breaker for me. The headset easily paired to my Samsung Nexus S 4G Android phone. I noticed a difference in the quality of sound. I made a few calls, alternating between the two headsets. The Jabra Extreme 2 sounded more like the sound through the actual phone, rather than the slightly muffled tinny sound I experienced with the Plantronics. Also, the sound did not irritate my ear, as it did with the Plantronics, and volume adjustment was very easy, with designated buttons for up or down. I've made calls from moving cars, and I was able to hear the other party well, as was my voice on the other line. The earpiece was comfortable, and you have the option of using the ear hook or just the inserts. Start up of the device with the on/off switch was quick and painless
.
I really like the Caller ID announce feature! It tells you who is calling you in plain English so you don't have to take your eyes off the road to look at your phone. Voice dial calls are made by holding the call button until the Voice Control option on Android prompts you. The Jabra will also tell you the battery life via voice. This unit is stated to have approximately 5.5 hours of call time. The battery life for this headset impressed me more than the Plantronics, which was 4.5, and I found it draining quickly, even though I did not use the phone extensively. Another reason, why I'm sticking with the Jabra Extreme 2 instead of the Plantronics as my main headset.

The music streaming feature, although mono only, of course, was pretty clear. Also, I was able to hear text message notifications, and games, as if through a normal headset, a feature the Plantronics Savor did not provide me. The noise cancellation is quite good as well. Which is great considering it's the EXTREME2's primary selling feature. To me, it's even better than the Jawbone headsets, but without the dropouts caused by the unit (The Jawbone) not touching your cheek.

Overall, I feel this Jabra Extreme 2 provides great bang for the buck. It supplies the user with all the features he/she needs and none that they don't. I am very happy with this headset, and I would recommend it as a higher quality headset than the current run-of-the-mill Bluetooth headsets out today. It is a bit pricy, however. I feel as if the price could be lowered $20 or so and it would be an absolute steal. Thus my only giving it 4 stars. I still very much like the headset, however and have no problems recommending it.
