>> And this is the Aliph Jawbone 2, the successor to the very popular Aliph Jawbone from two years ago. This was our highest rated [inaudible] set, and we'll see if the Jawbone 2 matches up to that claim. It is, as you can see a very stylish, very beautiful headset, much like the first Jawbone. And they're actually two buttons, you can't really them. That's that noise-accessing button on top here, and there's the multifunction button right in the middle here. You can't really see it; you have to sort of press it to find out. And when you press it, there'll be a glowing white silver of light, which is the LED indicator. On the back you do get the typical in-ear style ear bud. You also get an optical ear hook. This is the voice activation sensor. This is the trademark of all the Jawbone headsets. What you do is when you wear it, you have to place a sensor on your cheek, and that will sense the vibration of your voice and amplify [assumed spelling] it for your callers. Another interesting thing about the Jawbone 2 is that the sound quality on this device has been military tested. It's actually been approved by DARPA. So overall the Jawbone 2 is a very well designed, well-performing headset that fits well. It sounds great, and we definitely recommended it. The Jawbone 2 is available right now for [inaudible] one hundred and dollar dollars. It's pretty pricey. But it does come with an array [assumed spelling] of accessories, like an extra ear bud, extra ear hooks. And it also have and magnetic charging base, so it's very well worth the price for what it does. My name is Nicole Lee. This has been the Aliph Jawbone 2.
