From the overall size to the curves and blends to the textures of the materials, it has a nicely contoured shape, though I realize that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This version of the product, the Midnight, has a black grill with a layer of deep red under it, so deep that it is difficult to determine that it is red except upon close inspection and in the correct lighting conditions. Yep, blue. Not green? More on this later. In the pic below, it is lit in white, which indicates that the headset is on.

From the overall size to the curves and blends to the textures of the materials, it has a nicely contoured shape, though I realize that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This version of the product, the Midnight, has a black grill with a layer of deep red under it, so deep that it is difficult to determine that it is red except upon close inspection and in the correct lighting conditions.
Yep, blue. Not green? More on this later. In the pic below, it is lit in white, which indicates that the headset is on. The LED Ring alternates between flashing white and red when in pairing mode and flashed red when the battery life is low.
Below another pic of the underside of the headset, with the Voice Activity Sensor nub on the left and the On-Off slider switch near the center.

The VAS is a small rubberish nub that must be in contact with your cheek and pointing toward your mouth, presumably to detect vibrations for feature activation.
The ERA includes two styles of earbuds, each in four different sizes, to aid in providing the best fit for the user. On the left is the more round style, a slight variation on the type that is included with most other earbuds and headsets.

While on a call, press it once to switch to a new call; press twice to end one call and switch to another. NoiseAssassin 3. More on this below. First, pairing. Second, ShakeShake is also used to answer an incoming call when the ERA is on, but you are not wearing it.
Just pick it up, shake it twice, and it answers the call. I found this to be an intriguing feature. However, others may find this feature useful. TapTap — The TapTap function worked as advertised also. While the ERA is on and you are wearing it, just tap the outside of it the patterned surface twice and it answers an incoming call. Tap twice again and it ends the call.
Or, tap twice while on a call to switch to a different call. The sensitivity of this feature seems fairly well adjusted for the most part: it was not often that I would do a double-tap and not have it register and perform the intended function.
MyTalk — MyTalk allows you to download customizations to and edit settings on your headset from the jawbone. You start by creating an account, then installing an Updater to your computer.
The Updater software is the conduit between your headset and the site. For those curious, a Farmer Jones Test is basically a quick, no-nonsense but reasonable evaluation of something before a more in-depth investigation is conducted.
