Pros Not a single one.
Cons Made for a child's ear. Sounds like taking to someone through a wall. The battery lasts 40 mins IF it charges at all. The speaker points the opposite direction from the ear canal. No functions work right.
Summary You will be completely disappointed.
Pros The battery life is exactly as advertised 2 hours MAX! And a good 8 more on the charger.
The pairing is super quick
Design is the best, small and barely unnoticeable
Comes with a bunch of accessories
No annoying blue light on the outside line the other he
Cons It is rather annoying having to charge the headset multiple times when you're listening to music all day.
The quality of calls wasn't bad but the music quality was awful, but I didn't expect it to be.
The cord on both adapters are really short, it's a lit
Summary It's the best headset I've ever had mainly because I lost all those cheap samsung headsets. The stone design really is stylish and the touch volume is much better than pressing buttons. It's simple to use and quick to power on and pair before you put it your ear. And it works with android so it's a major plus.I got plenty of typos there. Well for the cord being short, I was saying that luckily the outlet plug is big enough for the stone to sit on top of the plug, but still the cord on both chargers are way too short.
If you're going to use it for media streaming, it's really not ideal. Stick to calls for the most part.

Pros incoming and outgoing quality is great; device is very light; great design and form factor.
Cons Very uncomfortable fit; won't stay in my ear canal, keeps poping out. Very frustrating to have to keep adjusting it back in the ear canal
Summary I have been using this for four months. The only negative for me is the fact that it does not fit my ear canal. I love the design and features, but now I avoid using it because it keeps falling out of my ear canal.
easy to use with mutiple audio players
Cons Battery life!
Could use an isolating eargel for the noisiest environments.
Really, really crappy belt clip
Summary Despite it's flaws, this is a solid upgrade from the original Stone. Forget the "claimed" battery life, you'll be lucky to get an hour before the warning comes on. That is the only thing that is truly bad on this headset. The good news is it charges quickly, and the cradle base holds more charges than the original. It has progressed to the point of being a good travel headset, as you can take a few days without charging and still get decent mileage.
The base also has a better battery level indicator, and I have had very few problems getting the headset to stick into the base and charge correctly (this was TERRIBLE on the original stone, having to reinsert the headset muliple times for the headset to stay off and charge properly). The better build quality results in a better fit for everything.
Mic quality won't match the best boom-mic headsets, but then again, you don't have to look like a tool while wearing it either. Audio quality on my side is good, and most the complaints I have had were related to bluetooth interference - re-pairing the headset, fortunately fast and easy on this headset, will resolve this.
The ear fit will come lose while wearing, this is only a problem if you bend over to where the headset can fall off the ear.
The belt clip is a plastic joke, and probably won't last 3 weeks, hopefully you won't lose the entire headset. Jabra will want to charge you $10 for a new clip and another $10 to ship. I ended up jerryrigging one from metal wire that works great.
I can't agree with other reviews on the volume controls; they are fast and reliable for me, every time. Some fat fingers might have trouble with fine-tuning.
It connects well with the iPhone; you can activate voice control from the headset to call or play music, and the Jabra app adds a battery level indicator to the iPhone;s
All in all, as much as I'd like to have better battery life, the convenience, comfort and style are hard to give up. When the phone rings, pop the headset out of the charger, and it will be connected before you even get it up to your ear. Volume is good in all but the noisiest environments, a solid improvement over the original. Don't expect too much out of it for music because of the battery, but the actual performance is totally decent for a mono headset. Since I usually listen while out and about, I will pop the headset into the charger while dealing with a cashier, driving in the car or during a commercial break on the radio, this will keep the headset topped off so I can use it through the entire day in most cases.
Pros Fit is the best I've ever had from an earbud. It's discouraging how poor the functionality is.
Cons Short battery life, never gets even the 2 hours talk time advertised.
Media playback is choppy, cuts out often.
Low battery notification is annoying.
Summary I'm actually quite upset that this headset isn't better. Especially with the $110+ price tag.
The fit is amazing, most headsets drive me nuts. But the operation makes me hate this headset.
My biggest gripe is the annoying "Low battery" notifications. Other headsets have a discrete beep notification, Stone 2 has an annoying voice every 5 minutes that interrupts both incoming audio and cuts off outgoing as well. This goes on for at around 20-30 minutes before the headset actually dies. Wish I could turn the notification off.
Battery life in general is poor. The box advertises 2 hours of talk time from a charge, which is already poor, but I've only ever gotten 1.5 hours out of it (best case), usually it's around 45 min to an hour. What makes this worse is that "standby" time isn't much better. Even when not in use the headset dies after 3-4 hours. I've noticed there's constantly static coming out of the earpiece also.
Voice commands are so-so. Sometimes I have to repeat myself several times to answer or ignore a call. Activating the voice command feature on the phone works fine with a BlackBerry, but I can't get it to work on Android 2.2
Even when paired with a phone that doesn't have A2DP I have the same experience.
I don't have an issue with the volume rocker like others. Maybe it's just a matter of touching it the right way.
Overall very disappointing from a headset that had so much hype
