Jabra Stone Gets Style Points, Out November 8
In a large sea of bluetooth headsets, it’s hard to get noticed nowadays; Jabra, however, knows how to get its product to stand out above the rest. Just the name, the Jabra Stone, is enough to turn anyone’s head.
Add to that a PR campaign in which media members were sent a package containing nothing but an actual stone — a real stone — with Jabra Stone’s website inscribed on it. Clever, right?
It certainly was enough to build up intrigue; nobody even knew for sure what the Stone would look like, other than a couple fuzzy leaked pics. But now the anticipated date of announcement has come, October 20, and we have some official pics of the headset to show, as well as some nice specs.
When the Stone is docked, it really does look like an actual stone or pebble of some kind. It has a very sleek look and feel to it.
Here are some specs:
- 2 modes: one for voice calls and one for music
- touch-sensitive shell instead of buttons
- noise cancel
- 2 hours talk time, 12 hours standby
- three earbud sizes
The Jabra Stone will be available at AT&T stores beginning November 8 at a $130 price tag, which puts it in direct competition with the Jawbone Prime, Plantronics Voyager 975, and BlueAnt Q1. Will it stand up to the competition? Only time will tell.
Tell us — what do you think of the Stone from first impressions? I love the look of it and am eager to try one on.
