A Closer Look at the Jabra Stone Bluetooth
The all new Jabra Stone, Bluetooth Headset, is a beast! This is by far my favorite BlueTooth of all time. In my opinion, you could compare the Stone to a Jawbone Prime on Steroids. The headset just launched on November 8th and it is already selling like crazy. The Stone uses a new and innovative form factor, it fits over the ear like no other bluetooth I have ever seen before. To top it off, it is VERY comfortable.
To compliment the sleek design, the Jabra Stone also comes with a portable charger. The charging dock for this bluetooth not only chargers while plugged in, but also holds a charge when the plug is removed. After removing your charging dock from the wall, it holds enough juice to charge your Stone two additional times. I personally charge my Stone in the base, and when it is done I unplug and go. This is very practical feature and one of a kind!
Docking your Stone also brings another interesting feature to the table. When you dock your Stone, it automatically turns off and disconnects from your phone. As you may have thought, when you un-dock the Stone it will automatically turn on and reconnect to your phone.
Along with all these new and fancy features, the Jabra Stone is also top of the charts for sound and reception. The Stone uses a noice cancelation software and has crystal clear sound while using the phone or listening to voicemails. This Bluetooth is also Stereo compatible. Yes, that is right! With the Jabra Stone you can listen to any on board media files, such as music and movies. ** Will work with Slacker, Pandora and other music apps.
A Bluetooth is hard to review via a text summary on a webpage, but I assure you this a top notch product. This headset is not yet in the BBOS Store so when you have a moment, head to your nearest technology related store and check it out. It will be worth your time!
Below are some images of the Sleek, Stylish and Unique design of the Jabra Stone:

It definitely looks nice and sleek, but I don't know if the bluetooth headsets ever really caught on. I think people always want their phone up to their ear, that way, it doesn't look like they are talking to themselves haha.
Fine piece of work to me. Blue tooth headsets caught on (in high school) alright - I'm a senior in high school and everyone wears them and talks on the phone in class because most teachers are so naive.. Lol
Bluetooth headset have deffinatly caught on. I am not sure where you live if they have, but in most places for sure. Most states like New York, Texas and Colorado (I name thoughs because I know for sure) have driving laws against putting your phone up to your head. Also in most buissness areas, biz peeps are always wearing them. They are always on the go go go and can not always hold the phone. This is me. Always doing things, so its easier to use a BT.
I personally only use the headset for use with the Playstation 3; the old original Motorola BT headset I have is good enough for that.
Hands-free in the car, I have bluetooth in my stereo system, but if I didn't have that I would totally check this out! Great review!

Unless somehow my settings are preventing the use of BT with Pandora...? Any ideas?
To get Slacker or Pandora to play through your headset... or any other BT speaker:
Connect the headset, then open the app. Once the app is open, you have to press menu and enable BT... ether that or menu/settings - enable BT... something like that.

Reason: OP updated...
Never bought bluetooth before because of the model.... but this one looks nice.... very nice... hope the price is not too high to afford...
I stand corrected.
I found the options to enable bluetooth and it works fine!!!
Thanks for the headset up. I will adjust the top post...
This looks incredible. (Nice review.) I've never been much of a fan of hands-free devices because of bulk, but this may change my mind.
True story: I was outside a restaurant, waiting to be seated, and I watched a guy talk on his bluetooth for 10 minutes with a finger up to his ear. How is that any different than holding the phone?
