Jabra Stone 2

 

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...

The Jabra Stone 2 has a stylish and unique design that encapsulates the headset inside a charger. The fit is effortless, comfortable, and discreet. Updated features include voice guidance alerts and voice controls.

The Jabra Stone 2's audio quality is average at best, with quite a bit of digital noise in outgoing calls. We're not fans of the touch-sensitive volume rocker, and the Stone 2 only fits in the right ear.

The Jabra Stone 2 is undoubtedly elegant with several advanced features to boot, but it does have a downside in performance.

Not many Bluetooth headsets combine style and performance, and when they do, they stand out. Examples include the Aliph Jawbone Prime , the BlueAnt Q1 , and the Plantronics Discovery 975 . Jabra, a company that has been in the Bluetooth business a long...

The Jabra Stone has a one-of-a-kind design that combines a headset with a portable charger. The headset fits easily over the ear and is small enough not to be noticed. Features include multipoint technology and A2DP streaming.

The Jabra Stone's controls are difficult to use; we wish it had a snugger fit; and the call quality could be improved. It also fits around only the right ear.

While we love the style, portability, and feature set of the Jabra Stone, it does suffer from a few design and performance issues.

Up until now, choosing a Bluetooth headset has demanded you pick between outright style and audio performance. Devices like the Plantronics Discovery 975 and the Jawbone PRIME have gone some way in disguising their boom microphones and preserving sound...

Together, that adds up to a very successful Bluetooth headset, one that manages to deliver sound quality we’d associate with a full-boom rival and the comfort of a much smaller device. The lack of a non-proprietary port on the headset itself – meaning...

Forget going all day; the new Jabra Stone won't even last through one conference call. This appealingly tiny new Bluetooth headset has some good features, but ultimately it can't keep you connected for much more than an hour at a time. That's...

Plays music through a mono headset. Tiny. Good voice quality

Absolutely abysmal battery life. Poor performance in very noisy areas. No on-off switch

The Jabra Stone is an innovative little headset that even plays music—it just doesn't play it for very long.

The cradle acts as a charger that also stores additional juice. You can fast-charge the Stone2 three times using the cradle alone, with no AC power; each fast charge takes about 20 minutes. There's no power switch; pop the Stone2 out of the cradle, and...

Headset is attractively styled. Secure, comfortable fit. Earpiece sounds good. A2DP support

Expensive. Terrible battery life. Two-piece design is clumsy. Middling voice quality through the microphone. Ineffective noise cancellation

The Jabra Stone2 is a slight improvement over its predecessor, but a clunky two-piece design and poor battery life are major problems.

The Jabra STONE2 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...

Jabra Stone 2 Bluetooth Headset Review

 

Jabra has been in the Bluetooth headset market for a long time, but when Jabra first released the Stone Bluetooth headset, it didn't quite get the likes of everyone due to its performance. Jabra has since released the Stone 2 with an even sleeker...

Having been in the Bluetooth headset market for such a long time, I would have expected much more coming from Jabra. The Jabra Stone 2 is best for its extremely comfortable design. The terrible battery life, bad noise-cancellation performance and...

About a week ago, I finally got my hands on the second-generation Jabra Stone2. Like the original, the new model features a futuristic design that sets it apart from traditional Bluetooth headsets. Only a few other headsets including the Jawbone Icon...
