How to connect a Jabr wireless helmet with your smartphone, tablet or other mobile device?
Read More , but it’s a pain to put it on, as the helmet only comes with a few buttons and it’s not compatible with Bluetooth headphones.
That’s one reason why I’ve opted for the Jawbone UP3.
If you’re not a fan of buttons, but you’re looking for a good alternative to the Bluetooth earbuds, the Jabra UP3 will fit the bill.
It’s a bit heavier than the Jawbones, at 1.25kg, but it does have a nice weight distribution.
It does however come with a slight price bump, as Jawbone now offers the Jawpad UP, which is a cheaper alternative to Jawbone’s UP1, UP3 and UP4.
The new ones have a wider base, more flexible ear pads, and a USB port.
The UP3 also comes with Bluetooth 4.0 technology, which means it can be paired with all Bluetooth headphones (including the $39 Jabra Wireless headset) and will work with both the JawPro and the new Jabr headphones.
Jawbone is aiming for $100-150 in the US, and I think they’re aiming for around £100-120 for the UK, with prices dropping over time.
The JawPro will go on sale in Europe in January, with the UP3 launching in the UK and US in March.
The Jawbone Wireless Headset is available for $29.99, with a free two-year Jabra membership.

It’s not clear if the Jabr is compatible with the Jabras UP2, but I’ve not used it so I can’t comment on that.
The UP3 costs around $40.
The Jawpro is available from Amazon, and the UP4 is available through Best Buy and Amazon.com.
