Jabra versus Plantronics

Voice Quality

The voice pick-up/transmission qualities of the microphones are worlds apart. The Jabra is very clear. It always get's my voice commands immediately - even though I had set them up directly through the phone. The Plantronics rarely gets a voice command - ever. It's been very frustrating. People that I call, tell me that my calls have never been clearer using the Jabra - they're amazed I'm on a cell phone, let alone using an headset, especially an headset without wires. When I've phoned people using the Plantronics (usually resorting to pulling out the phone to dial), I'm told that I can barely be understood; I've been asked to call back later from a different phone; I was told it sounds like there is a broken wire. In both cases (Jabra/Plantronics), this is when I call from the car [windows closed, a/c on, road noise from tires]. From a still, quiet room, the Plantronics works all-right, both for voice commands and people perception, though not as high on the later as the Jabra. It appears that the noise canceling microphone on the Plantronics cuts out too often making one's voice seem full of static. The Plantronics user's guide has a warning that the mike will cut-out in high-wind areas, suggesting that you use it inside. Whoah!!!

The Battery Life of the Jabra seems to be about the same as the phone, the Plantronics about half of that.

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
