Jawbone ICON owners are now enabled to listen to music, podcasts, & driving directions
Aliph's Jawbone ICON Bluetooth headset is getting some nice needed additional functionality that'll enable users to accomplish a myriad of things without getting too distracted. Owners can simply visit the “Innovations” section of MyTALK at mytalk.jawbone.com and add this neat new feature at no additional cost. Basically it allows Jawbone ICON owners to use their Bluetooth headset to listen to podcasts, music, turn-by-turn driving directions, or listen to a live play-by-play of a sports broadcasting. When you look at it closely, the MyTALK feature allows the headset to stream any audio via Bluetooth from your cell phone.  Hosain Rahman, Aliph's CEO said, “Customers said they wished their Jawbone ICON could both be used for phone calls and for listening to music, eliminating the need for wires.  We responded, and now with the MyTALK platform, we are able to satisfy their desire immediately.  This is just one example of how Jawbone MyTALK breathes life into Jawbone ICON and lets our users get access to the latest functionality in seconds and with just a few mouse clicks.” Although the MyTALK service is free to add on for any Jawbone ICON owner, the headset itself will set you back $99.

I just bought the ICON, and man am I pleased!!! I just did the update for AD2P, which is for music, 2 thumbs up to JAWBONE. I still would like softer gel earbuds, but hey no one is perfect. If you were on the fence about a new earpiece, give this one a serious look.

But even if it does play music, it is still "mono" since it only has 1 earpiece right?

Jawbone 2 and prime sucked, I had both, but the icon is the best headset I've ever had.

This new Jawbone is awsome, i did hate the older ones. They would fall off my ear and they weren't loud enough. The music with this update is nice but the music needs to be a bit louder.
