Ways I work. I like to have a Bluetooth earpiece, paired with phone, iPad and laptop. It lets me listen to podcasts (I subscribe to a lot), take phone calls and do (voice-only) Skype without manually switching or being pinned to the chair, while keeping one ear open, as I prefer. I had a Jawbone Era Shadowbox, but it’s been degrading for a while, and may actually have fallen out of my pocket recently, so I just replaced it with a Bose. Which should hopefully stay in my ear better than the Jawbone ever did.
