What's good  

  • Impressive speech command and call handling features
  • Two-in-one device for mobile phones, tablets, and PCs
  • Powerful noise cancellation feature

What's bad  

  • Expensive price
  • Bulky design and non-adjustable ear hooks
  • Terrible performance when listening to music

Convergence is a big deal in the world of consumer electronics, and for that reason the Jabra Supreme UC shines as one of the finest examples of a Bluetooth headset ever made. In his review of the accessory, Chris Burns from Slashgear points out that it easily "replaces your in-office headset as well as your mobile headset in one swoop." And it's capable of offering excellent sound quality, to boot.

The top-level sound quality only seems to apply to phone calls, though. As MegaTechNews reviewer Dylan Duarte explains, "the audio quality just isn’t good enough for music." But since most people don't tend to rely on Bluetooth headsets for music listening, this doesn't really count as a major flaw for the Supreme UC.

Show more

A lot of expert reviews found online point out one thing rather consistently: that whatever the Supreme UC does, it does really well. Both Techradar and C|net are in agreement when calling this Bluetooth headset "impressive," "versatile," and "tough to beat."

When it comes to drawbacks, purchasing the Jabra Supreme UC presents at least two. One, it seems rather bulky and this greatly affects wearability. According to Aoife M. McEvoy from PC Advisor, an entirely stable fit couldn't be achieved while wearing it, owing to the included non-adjustable ear hooks. Another issue is with the price since it goes for well north of $100.

But if you can reconcile this with the fact that it essentially functions as two devices rolled into one, this headset looks to be a winner.

Lightweight yet sturdy in construction

Let’s get one thing out of the way immediately. One of the features of the Supreme UC is the ability to stream music. This is also the device’s biggest letdown. Ignoring the fact that listening to music in one ear pales in comparison to listening in both (you could say it’s half the experience), the audio quality just isn’t good enough for music. While communication is of the utmost importance, music demands a higher audio quality than a phone call. If you don’t have any earbuds then yes, the headset is an option for listening to music, but it won’t be a pleasant experience.

With the exception of playing music, which you shouldn’t be using a Bluetooth headset for anyway, the Supreme UC does its job extremely well. The $150 price tag might be a bit much for some (you can find it for as low as $95 online), especially since a lot of people could probably get away with using a lesser headset, but the Supreme UC is more or less without any major flaws.

It's difficult to consider spending $150 on a headset when you could just pull your phone out of your pocket instead in most situations, but here's the killer feature: the USB dongle that comes with the device will allow you to completely skip buying a second unit. The Jabra Supreme UC replaces your in-office headset as well as your mobile headset in one swoop. With excellent sound quality for you (the best if you're on Android) as well as great sound quality and noise cancellation for the person you're speaking with, the Jabra Supreme UC might just be the buy for you.

Sort of a hit and miss when it comes to delivering the goods

Let's tackle the wearability aspect first, which is a “no.” Jabra only includes two identical large (and non-adjustable) ear hooks, along with two ear gel covers. One cover sits flat against your ear, while the other sports two small hooks, resembling miniature shark fins which help anchor the headset inside your ear. The hooked cover helped secure the Supreme UC to my (small) ear somewhat, but no matter how much I futzed with the thing, I couldn’t achieve an entirely stable fit.

The Jabra Supreme UC's appeal centers on its handling of mobile calls and Internet calls. Too bad that this hook-oriented headset delivers a fit that's less secure than we would like. Joggers, for example, need not apply.

The sound quality on both ends is really, really good. While using the device, I asked numerous people how I sounded. Even with that prompting, none of them guessed that I was on a headset.

The Jabra Supreme UC Bluetooth headset is very effective and intuitively designed. (When I checked the instructions after forgetting how to do something, I kicked myself for forgetting such a simple task.) Though it’s not exactly cheap, Jabra certainly gives you a lot of bang for your buck.

The Jabra Supreme UC includes a complete charging system. That means it includes not only the wall charger but also an automobile power adapter and cable so that you are able to charge the headset at home and on the go.

If you want your Bluetooth headset to be as small and as unobtrusive as possible, then this isn’t the device for you. If, however, you couldn’t care less about its size, this is a great headset to consider. It is convenient, sounds excellent, and offers a degree of functionality that I have rarely seen in a Bluetooth headset. And all of that comes in a package that is under $150.

With the ability to pair with up to two devices simultaneously, the Jabra Supreme UC is designed to work with mobile devices like mobile phones and tablets as well as PCs. At first glance this may sound strange, but the Jabra Supreme UC is designed for a world where folks typically communicate via mobile phone as well as PC-based apps like Google+ Hangouts and Skype. In fact, the Jabra Supreme UC works with most Unified Communications (UC) applications including those by Microsoft and Cisco.

Simply put, if you're looking for a versatile communication solution that doubles as a Bluetooth headset for your mobile device as well as a subtle headset for PC-based communications you'll be extremely pleased with the Jabra Supreme UC.

Not only does it offer an easy way to merge PC and cellular voice communications, but also its impressive speech commands and noise cancellation abilities are tough to beat.

The Jabra Supreme UC is essentially the same device as the Jabra Supreme, the major difference being a tiny USB Bluetooth adapter included in the box. Called the Jabra Link 360, the adapter plugs into PCs to enable hands-free calls over Skype or IP office phone systems.

The Jabra Supreme UC comes with an extremely confident name and it delivers a lot of useful capabilities, including powerful noise cancellation and advanced voice-control features. It even slickly unifies office and mobile phone calls if your employer uses a modern IP-based software telephone system. If you seek all the original Jabra Supreme's capabilities plus a PC connection, the Supreme UC is worth checking out.

Ultimately I found the Supreme UC to be an incredibly comfortable, great-sounding piece of equipment.

Granted, the device will set you back $150. It’s a question of whether or not the capabilities of a headset like this are worth that price to you. For me, I can wholeheartedly recommend it, even at the premium cost. In the market? You owe it to yourself to have this one on your radar.

Simply, we’re not too ecstatic over the design of the Jabra Supreme UC, mainly because of its larger overall size when compared to other streamlined and more inconspicuous looking headsets. Sure, it’s lightweight enough to allow comfort for even prolonged usage, but above all, we detest its extremely loose fit.

All in all, the Jabra Supreme UC gets the job done in the calling quality department, but it’s still rather tough to swallow with its wallet busting price tag of $149.99. Also, it’s nice that the Jabra Connect app unlocks some additional functionality, but it’s only available for Android users – meaning, everyone else will be missing out. Still, we have to remind ourselves that it packages along a nano Bluetooth adapter for your computer, which eliminating the need to purchase a separate headset.

Performs well above what you might expect out of it

The Jabra SUPREME is without doubt the best Bluetooth headset I have ever used. It performs like a dream, has some great features and if you ask me it looks good too. If you are looking for a new in car Bluetooth solution then this has to be the one to go for.
