"Excellent product"on by samarx
Pros Just received today. Have used all day. Every function works as stated & I mean all. Sound quality on calls is great both ways. This by far the best bluetooth I have owned period! My wife has the Jawbone Prime. To us the Jabra Stone is better by far.
Cons Short charging cable is it. Wish it were longer.
Summary I have used all day & my wife used it part of the day to compare to her Jawbone Prime. Athe end of the day she wants to return her Jawbone & get the Stone. All functions work great, fit for both of us is fine, felt good in thear & did not feel like it was going to fall out at anytime. The external noise canceling works as well as the jawbone Prime also has ability to listen to music on your phone. I have to say that cnets review was not doing this unit justice but that is only my opinion. Believe me, if you buy this unit you will be be very happy. Also you can hardly tell it is in your ear. I had this one in my ear for over 6 hours without a problem. I could go on & on but I think you got the idea how I feel about this product.
Pros I have an iPhone and it is constantly losing pairing. Fiddling around with the phone and headset to get the pairing to work can cause accidents. Once paired, it can be good for a minute and then drops off.
Cons Bad pairing; short battery life; poor angle towards the ear.
Summary While the JX 10 and JX 20 were good for 5-6 hours of talk, the stone needs to be recharged every two hours. Granted, the charger is portable, but still, if the JX's had room for a larger battery, so does the Stone. Also, I find it necessary to continually push it into my ear to hear. It comes with an alternate o-ring, but you may as well shove straws up your nose for all the comfort that one supplies. The Stone needs the pairing fixed (especially for the price) and the angle to the ear needs a better ear-gonomic design.
Pros Design is cool. Storage in the "stone" is neat.
Cons Inflexible fitting. Tapping controls are stupid.
Summary w/o a good snug fit this device will make you crazy. The sound will be poor because the bud is not IN your ear. When you naturally try to push the ear bud in your ear to hear better you will unwittingly hit a control button usually hanging up on your party. If you are just trying to get the device snug or handling it in any way it is much too easy to double tap and call your last party by accident w/o knowing it. For me to execute the tapping once I had the device set in my ear (loosely) I had to push the device hard enough to incur pain in my ear drum. I am taking this thing back tomorrow. Yikes!
Pros the design very clean and very cool, i love apple and when i see it has unibody, i picked it.
Cons But when i received and start using it, there are two many problems.
Summary But when i received and start using it, there are two many problems. first, it just fit only in right ear, and believe me, not good when you hear your cell phone or bluetooth by right ear. second, idk if my ear somehow is the different one but the Stone doesnt fit on mine, it's loose and easy to fall down. third, the signal just works well on a short distance, cannot further than 5 or 7 feet. forth, the weakest problem at the portable charger, i tried to hang it in my belt, my pants, either ways from left or right side, it always easy to jump out with some of your activities. and i broke it 1 time when i bowled and i dont even realize that after my friend point me where it was on the floor. totally it need to be locked somehow. i cannot count how many time the Stone with the portable charger felt down on the floor when i study, work, etc. and i step on that also. and please note that comes with the portable charger so you cannot keep them in the pocket or wherever. and the last thing is the Bluetooth hold charger is very short, around 1-1.5hr, it should be more than that, i expect 4hrs. i love the idea with the portable charger (now too many brand name using that), and the design of Stone bluetooth with adjust volume by touch your finger. but anyway it need to be fixed all the problem i list above to become the great one. i know the Stone 2 was release and with the higher price but i still see the same problem with the no.1 version. hope it will be changed soon.
Pros I liked the overall physical design; and the idea of have a secondary charger for when it went dead.
Cons Length of run time per charge was not very good; a few hours (typically two or so for me). Would not stay put in my ear no matter what ear gel I used which caused me to always have to mess with it and constantly try to push it in while talking.
Summary I have used Jabra two other times and loved the design and used for a couple of years each...was excited and then soooo disappointed.
