Jabra is famous for its headsets and the Stone is the firm's latest device. Does it deserve a place on your ear?

On unpacking the Stone we were immediately taken with its design. The earpiece sits in a charging dock and when they're both together, it resembles a smooth black stone (pictured). Separating the earpiece the Jabra impresses again in the looks department but some users might find the fact that it's designed for right ear use only a limiting factor.

To aid usability the headset boasts battery life and Bluetooth connection indicators that light up when the headset is used. Users with multiple phones will find the Stone flexible because it can be connected to two phones simultaneously.

The headset is usable with only one hand and provides exceptional sound quality. And, thanks to its ‘Noise Blackout' technology the headset was able to mask most of the background noise which made conversing in noisy environments a little easier for both parties.

One issue we had with the Stone is that the USB charger it ships with has a very short connector cable; it measures less than 30cm in length. This isn't a major problem if your power socket sits on your desktop but if the socket is located at the base of your desk, you'll have to leave the Stone on the floor where it might be trampled.
 

Verdict: While this headset is somewhat pricey the Stone is easy-to-use, quite stylish and very functional.
