As much as I love my Jawbone (first gen model) I've never found it loud
enough to work well in most datacenters.  The person on the other end of the
phone can hear you clearly due to it's excellent noise cancellation, but
even at top volume on the both the phone and the Jawbone it's normally
difficult to hear them.  (And that's presuming you can actually work out how
to use it's volume control to turn it up)

It may just be mine, or the first gen models - not sure.
