Hooking up the Jabra SUPREME was probably the easiest thing I’ve ever had to do (Bluetooth headset wise).

All you do is turn on the SUPREME by flipping the boom to the open position, you’ll then be greeted by a female voice, which was extremely clear might I add, and then connect to the headet in your Bluetooth settings. No codes to type in or anything, just pair them up and you’re ready to go.

If you so wish, you can also pair a second device whilst still being connected to the first, a very unique feature I don’t think I’ve seen on a Bluetooth headset before.

To pair the second device, you have to press the Voice Command button on the mic boom and say “Pair new device”. Instructions will follow; which are identical to when I originally paired my iPhone apart from it will inform you that two devices are paired.

The SUPREME was relatively comfortable on my ear and I didn’t experience any problems regarding the design.

An interesting feature I also noticed was that you could play music through you’re Bluetooth enabled laptop (audio quality here was surprisingly good, nothing on dedicated headphones for music, but still good), however, when you receive a call and finish with that call, the music does not continue to play through the headset. Not that this matters, but I was fiddling around with quite a few settings and various things to see what the SUPREME could do.

Also tested were two different phones that I connected to the SUPREME, both worked great so no problems there.

Audio Quality

I tested the audio quality in a few ways during the testing phases we go through. First was just with the Jabra SUPREME connected to one phone and having a chat with a work colleage. The quality here was second to none, most likely helped by the noise cancellation technology and the HD Voice feature.

The next test was connecting the SUPREME up to my MacBook Air and playing some music, whilst still connected to my iPhone.

Even though this headset definitely isn’t marketed as being able to be used with music, it does a surprisingly good job at it. Although not the same high quality audio we saw in the Sennheiser RS 170s we reviewed recently, everything was clear and understandable.

Verdict

Overall, I’m very impressed with the Jabra SUPREMEs performance, and I expected nothing less that amazing for a Jabra product.

Even though the build quality could probably be slightly better, the ability to connect two devices at the same time, have amazing noise cancelled, HD audio for easy to understand calls is just brilliant.

I’d say that with the build quality not as high quality as previous Jabra products, I would have liked to have seen a price tag of no more than £75.

One feature that I really enjoyed, without sounding too childish, is the flipping boom mic to turn on/off the headset. It’s a feature I haven’t seen on a recent Bluetooth headset and it definitely sets the SUPREME apart from other headsets.

Pros

  • Extremely high quality audio thanks to the HD Audio feature
  • Noise cancellation
  • Flip-boom arm

Cons

  • Price
  • Build quality could be better

8/10
