First Look: Jabra Extreme1:41 /
Despite our fit issues, the Jabra Extreme's advanced features, excellent noise-cancellation, and affordable price tag makes it a great Bluetooth headset.
[ Background music ] >> Nicole Lee: I'm Nicole Lee Associate Editor for CNET.com and this is a first look at the Jabra Extreme Bluetooth headset. It is as you can see a very typical looking Bluetooth headset here. On the front is the Jabra branding. It's also the home of the multifunction top button. On the front here you get a perforated grill look, it actually hides the dual microphones underneath that. On either side of the top button are the volume controls. On the top here is the charger jack. On the side is a dedicated power switch so it's really easy to turn the headset on and off. On the back here is the ear piece as well as an optional ear hook. The Extreme comes in 3 different style of ear gel covers one requires the ear hook as you can see here. There are 2 other ultimate fit ear gel covers that don't require the ear hook. It also comes with a few accessories like a USB charger as well as a car charger. The Jabra Extreme boasts excellent dual microphone noise cancellation thanks to Jabra's noise blackout extreme technology. It also has multipoint connection which means it can connect up to 2 devices at the same time. It also has A2DP compatibility which means you can stream music to the headset wirelessly. One of the biggest disappointments of the Extreme however was the fit of the ear gel. It just didn't fit in our ears very comfortably.
