Aliph bone-conduction Bluetooth headset reviewed

Looks like we're going bone conduction crazy – next up is Julie Strietelmeier's review of the Aliph Jawbone Bluetooth Headset.  You might remember the Jawbone from the tail-end of last year; while it looks like a normal headset, albeit a particularly stylish one, it actually picks up sound conducted through your jaw rather than relying solely on a traditional microphone.  The promise is far better sound quality, which is exactly what Julie set out to test...

 So does it work?  Hell yeah – Julie found that it gave the best performance of any headset she's tried, bar none.  Even with the volume of her car stereo cranked right up, callers could hear her with no problems at all.  Only wind noise was an issue, though if you're wearing your headset out in public and not in a car then you deserve to be punished anyway.

The headset is available now for around $119.99
