Jabra STONE2 Bluetooth Headset
Article Publish Date:
Up until a few years ago i can't really say i was very much into Bluetooth headsets nor was i the most knowledgeable person regarding that technology and how could i since only a handful of models were released by companies like Nokia, Motorola, and Sony Ericsson which didn't offer that much to begin with. However during the past years that has changed and now there are Bluetooth headsets by several manufacturers with features (and designs) never before seen. Jabra is without doubt on the top of those manufacturers and today with us we have their latest STONE2 Bluetooth Headset which is amongst the few similar products to ever receive the Best of Innovations award at CES.
GN Netcom, led by the Jabra brand, continues to build on its standing as one of the world’s leading and fastest growing suppliers of hands-free communications solutions. With approximately 875 employees and sales offices around the world, GN Netcom develops manufactures and markets a broad range of wireless headsets for mobile users and both wireless and corded headsets for contact centre and office-based users. GN Netcom’s business activities also include its original equipment manufacturing (OEM) business to a wide range of global customers including mobile phone, PC and PDA manufacturers.
As clearly stated by the product name the STONE2 is the successor to the very good STONE Bluetooth Headset released by Jabra in late 2009 which took the market by storm thanks to its design and extremely convenient mobile charger. In the beginning of 2011 Jabra released the new and updated STONE2 Bluetooth Headset with improved technical specifications including a wider range of modes and profiles, extended charger battery, longer standby time and a recharge rate cut in half. The basic design of course remained the same (since most people liked it) but unlike the original STONE unit which featured a polished surface the STONE2 comes with a leather coating that makes the unit look and feel a lot more elegant than its predecessor (there's also a glossy/polished version available now). But just how well does it perform? Read on to find out.
