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.

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