Summary: The Jabra STONE2 is undoubtedly a gorgeous looking Bluetooth headset, with a leather finish. And add an equally good-looking charging dock to the package, and you would assume that we have a winner on our hands. However, the very limited battery backup offered by the headset means you will rely on the charger more often than not. Most handsets beat that comfortably on their own, without the separate charging dock. At a price of close to Rs.
Pros: Attractive design, Comfortable to wear, Voice guidance for battery level & call status, Charging dock with built-in battery is a value add
Cons: Audio quality deteriorates on noisy environments, Voice commands need precise pronunciation, Limited battery backup of the headset, Pricey
Excerpt: 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 finish and added features in hopes that it will improve on its predecessor. While the Stone 2 has kept the streamline unique design as its predecessor, it still doesn't look like your typical Bluetooth headset.
Conclusion: Easily one of the classiest headsets available. Much like the original Stone, the Stone 2 consists of headset which is set in a circular stone-shaped dock. In terms of a design update, the Stone 2 comes in both glossy and leather finish. We received the leather version for review and prefer it to the glossy one. The problem with glossy surfaces is that it tends to get smudged with fingerprints very quickly. Plus, the leather surface makes the Stone 2 looks nicer.
