  1. Jawbone

    The Jawbone is a line of Bluetooth mobile phone headsets produced by Aliph Inc, a privately held San Francisco-based consumer technology company founded by Alexander Asseily and Hosain Rahman in 1999. Since the introduction of the line in December 2006, it has been widely regarded as one of the best Bluetooth headsets available. The current model in the line is the Jawbone Era, which, like other models, sports a skin contact microphone that comes in contact with the wearer's face and gives the line its name. A defining feature of the Jawbone line is the integration of Aliph's NoiseAssassin adaptive signal processing technology, which was originally developed for DARPA to reduce communication background noise in military environments.
