Strapping on a Bluetooth headset doesn’t have to mean casting off dignity. We put 4 to the test to find which skew more cool than tool (you know, relatively speaking).
1. Aliph Jawbone Icon
Headsets don’t have to be hideous. Just ask Yves Béhar, whose handsome design for the original Jawbone has been further refined in the Icon. It sounds great, too: Noise filters eliminate virtually all external racket—wind, gunfire, loquacious hobos. The folks at Aliph are also apparently BFFs with Apple; a separate battery indicator for the headset appears onscreen when you pair an Icon with an iPhone.
