Jabra Stone Bluetooth headset

by

jabra-stoneI remember back in the day where Bluetooth just kicked off, and having a cellphone with Bluetooth connectivity, much less a Bluetooth headset, was considered to be high end. Fast forward a few years and we have Bluetooth technology embedded in just about most entry-level handsets and above. This is a good thing as well since more and more countries have outlawed drivers from talking on the phone while on the road unless they have a hands-free kit of sorts, which is where Bluetooth headsets come in handy. Jabra is a name that is associated with quality Bluetooth headsets, and their latest release would be the Jabra Stone that will usher in a new era in style after breaking the mold of the traditional Bluetooth headset.

For starters, the Jabra Stone will look very different from other Bluetooth headsets in the market, where it will elegantly wrap itself behind the ear to do away with the typical on-face microphone design that is extremely popular, merging both style and functionality into a single device. Apart from that, it comes with a wireless portable charger that also functions as a compact carrying case which is tiny enough to fit into the palm of your hand. All you need to do is plug your headset into the charger and power up whenever and wherever you want in order to stay in touch over your phone at all times. The Jabra Stone will also feature Noise Blackout Extreme whenever you remove the microphone arm off your face.

Apparently, the Jabra Stone will come with up to 8 hors of talk time and 12 days of standby time with the Jabra Stone Charger, while the Jabra StatusDisplay makes it a snap to check current battery levels and Bluetooth connectivity with but a glance. You can connect up to two Bluetooth-enabled devices to the Jabra Stone simultaneously. It will hit the market from November 8th onwards at AT&T retail stores for $129.99 a pop.

I purchased one and it was horrible. The earpiece actually hurt my ear to the point of not being able to wear it after about 5 hours or so. I need to keep it on for work, while I work with my hands, and it is sometimes on for 8+ hours. I couldn’t possibly do that with the Stone. It is bulky and unforgiving in the ear canal. The sound was horrible, I had to yell in order for people to hear me over the background noise while in a normal store setting or in my 4WD car. I returned it after 2 days. I wouldn’t pay $25 for this thing, let alone $129…
