Aliph Jawbone headset – broken by design

Today my new Aliph Jawbone bluetooth headset – the “highest rated bluetooth headset ever” arrived in the mail. When I had read people complain about the charging port I thought it might just be fiddly.

Little did I know- this is what it looked like, right out of the box:

Aliph Jawbone: Broken by design

Why do I not see an open outcry on the web about this, how can this headset be as highly rated as it is?


  1. Exactly the same thing happened to me this morning.

    I pulled the charger off the end, and that curved end-cap came off with it.
    I’ve secured mine with a little blob of glue at either side of the cap.

    If only Aliph had put a little less effort into designing the packaging, and more into build quality.
