OK, OK – it's growing on us. And no, we're not referring to a portion of our nether regions after seeing The Bachelor Jake Pavelka shirtless again this week.

We first believed those sporting the earpieces more than twenty paces away from their steering wheels were crazy.

But lately the reputation suffered by Bluetooth earpieces has enjoyed a change for the better, largely because of fashionable tech company Jawbone. (Coincidentally, it's our jawbone that keeps our reputations in the gutter.)
To take the earpieces to the next level – the level of us joining the ranks of dudes donning them in everyday life – the brand has released its latest swanky tech line: Jawbone Icon.
