Jawbone Directions FAQ

   Posted August 17, 2008 by David Kirk in Technology reviews

The jawbone is one of the best bluetooth cellular headsets available. Here are the basic directions for controlling this wonderful device.


Two buttons exist on the headset. Neither of the buttons are visible externally. Pressing at the very end of the headset near the earbud activates the NoiseAssassin (NA) button. This button is on the area of the headset that is almost at a 90 degree angle from the rest of the device and would be parallel to the back of the ear. Here is a photo demostrating the location of this button:

The TALK button is activated by pressing anywhere else along the length of the device.

Turn headset on/off – Press TALK for 2 seconds

(When the light turns red, the device is powering down. When the light turns white, the device is powering on.)
