I've been using Motorola bluetooth headsets only and kind of believes only Motorola can produce the best until... I came across Plantronics and Jawbone while surfing the net. I was using the Motorola H710, H375, H12 and then H790. The H790's performance met about 70% of my personal expectations on a good all-round performance bluetooth unit. H790 did outperformed the H12 on speaker volume and Crystaltalk (noise "reduction" technology). I was happy with it and kind of wanted to look for a better unit. Did quite a bit of reading on Plantronics and Jawbone, based on my research, decided to buy the Plantronics 975. It was an ultimate sounding bluetooth unit, really, and I mean really clear sounding bluetooth unit, the best so far that I've tried. Returned the Plantronics 975 due to clear background noise (no background noise cancellation) eventhough it was the clearest sounding bluetooth I've ever owned... todate. Got the 2nd unit, the same thing persisted, talked to the local Plantronics distributor and they are willing to refund me since I'm not happy with it. Purchased this Jawbone Prime, this time I tested it while I was at the store, the 1st brand new unit I tested sounded badly. Opened up another brand new unit, this time it was good, did my testing by calling several of my friends.





My conclusion, the Plantronics 975 has the best audio quality for both outgoing and incoming, it was unfortunate that the background noise cancellation is poor. At noisy environment, I did call my friends to test out on its quality, they all said the same, they heard me really clear and I sounded like I was calling from landline but they all heard the background too. Now Jawbone Prime did not sound as great as Plantronics 975 in terms of audio quality but J.Prime edge P.975 on Noise cancelling by a big margin. So it boils down to individual's preference and my priority is on background noise cancelling quality. J.Prime's audio quality is not great and I would say it's OK but I need my clients or friends to hear me comfortably without background disturbances so I opted for Jawbone Prime. So which one you choose is depending on what you are looking for. Clarity, go for Plantronics, noise cancelling, go for Jawbone. Comfort level, both are about the same for me. Plantronics 975 might have the charging case, all I need is additional Jawbone cable in my car when I need it so it's not a big deal for me too. Had the Jawbone Prime possesses the clarity of Plantronics 975, I would rate it as a perfect bluetooth headset.
