A Bluetooth headset is as much a critical communication device as it is a fashion accessory. And no wonder the focus on making these devices look good. The STONE2 from Jabra walks that same path. However, does it have the necessary functionality and performance? Lets find out. There is no doubt about it- the JabraSTONE2 is one of the best-looking Bluetooth headsets out there. The U shaped design wraps comfortably around the ear, and the Eargels (there are four more of those in the package in different sizes) are comfortable to wear even for long durations. The matte finish on the inner panel complements the leather finish on the front side (also available with a glossy finish on the outer panel). Speaking of which, the call notification and pairing status LEDs are on the inner panel. The accompanying battery charging dock is a very cute round design to it, and the STONE2 sits nicely in it, giving it a complete pebble look. Maybe this should've been called Jabra Pebble! The new JabraSTONE2 comes with voice guidance feature built-in. what this does is basically give you an audio notification about the battery status, number/name of the incoming call and connectivity status. This, we felt, really helped most of the time. Particularly about the battery status!
The claims to be a member of the high-end Bluetooth headset kind - an example of a unique design fused together with a bouquet of useful features. Picking up right where its predecessor, the original Jabra STONE, left off, the STONE2 feels well built, weighs next to nothing, and it is definitely something that you wouldn’t mind being seen wearing in public. The most noticeable improvement that we find in the new model is the inclusion of voice commands that make using the headset a true hands-free experience. Besides that, you can use it to listen to your music and videos thanks to its A2DP support, and the active noise reduction feature should make your conversations sound as clear as they can be. So far, everything about the Jabra STONE2 sounds great, but does the headset really perform well enough to justify its $129 price tag? Let’s check it out and find out for ourselves.Folks who are familiar with the original Jabra STONE will notice that the newer Jabra STONE2 model looks pretty much identical to its well-crafted predecessor. You get the same earpiece and charging dock tandem – snap the two together and you get a “pebble” that can be carried around in a pocket or clipped to a belt for convenience. What’s the idea behind that?
The original Jabra Stone ($129.99, 2 stars) had some serious problems, including dismal battery life and a bizarre two-piece design. The company went back to the drawing board and came up with the Stone2, a modestly improved Bluetooth headset with longer, but still too-short battery life, and the same clunky design. Unfortunately, it's still far from acceptable, and the Stone2 doesn't even sound that great. The Jabra Stone2 is made entirely of black plastic; glossy on the front, matte on the back. This model is available exclusively at AT&T. A leather-covered model is available from Verizon Wireless. Both versions measure 2.3 by 2.0 by 1.0 inches (HWD) and weigh 0.3 ounces. The Stone2's rubber gel tip sits a bit inside the ear, but it's not as intrusive as some other Bluetooth headsets with similar ear tip designs. Jabra packs three other gel tips in various sizes in the box along with a plastic belt clip. A single multi-function button - essentially, the entire edge of the device - lets you answer and reject calls, as well as check battery life when you're not on a call. To adjust the volume, you swipe your finger over the main body of the headset up or down; this was a little fiddly in practice, but it generally worked well.
The Jabra Stone Bluetooth headset, which was introduced almost a year ago, was one of a few Bluetooth headsets we thought was stylish enough to not trigger too much embarrassment when worn. That is due to its unique and discreet design that stays close to the ear, looking more like modern jewelry than a telemarketer headpiece. The second iteration, the Jabra Stone 2, has thankfully kept the same design, but now has many more features to keep up with the competition. The Jabra Stone 2 is available for $129.99 retail. As we mentioned, the Jabra Stone 2 has the same design as the original. It's in the shape of a comma, or a curved hook, housed inside a smooth and round portable charger. The headset comes with four ergonomic ear gels that feel super comfortable in the ear. In fact, we found it completely effortless to slip the headset on and off. The only difference between the Stone 2 and the Stone's design is that the Stone 2 comes in glossy and leather finishes, in contrast to the original Stone's smooth pebble feel. The glossy finish is available from AT&T stores, while the leather version is from Verizon.
