The Good The Jabra Supreme offers powerful active noise canceling, plenty of volume, and advanced voice controls.
The Bad The Supreme's ear loop is large and has a loose fit. You may have to perform a software upgrade.
The Bottom Line It's hard to beat the Jabra Supreme's strong noise canceling and voice command features. If you're willing to pay a premium and don't mind the design or lack of stereo audio, the Supreme may have your name on it.
Jabra SUPREME Bluetooth Headset
Despite the rise of data-centric smartphones, quite a few people still use their handsets for simple voice calls. And for some of those people, a quality Bluetooth headset is a great solution when talking in the car or chatting for long periods in noisy places. For $99.99 the Jabra Supreme brings decent features and quality performance, though its design wasn't what I hoped. Read on to see if this advanced wireless Bluetooth accessory is right for you.
Jabra's Supreme certainly bucks the design trend for Bluetooth headsets. At 0.63 ounces, it's very light and seemingly compact at first glance. But after unfurling the device's long boom arm it quickly becomes clear that the Supreme is a much bulkier contraption than your typical mono headset. Not only does the microphone arm protrude a good distance forward, but also the main headset body itself juts a full 1.2 inches from the ear. That girth makes the Supreme veritably plump next to sleek models like the Jawbone Era (0.72 inch).
