back to article Jabra Stone 2 Bluetooth headset

I've never been a fan of Bluetooth headsets, but Jabra's Stone 2 is one of the first I've tried that I'd consider using regularly. Jabra Stone 2 Jabra's Stone 2: the design is 'boomless'... For one thing, it's more discreet than many of its ilk. There's no big black block poking out of your ear, blue light flashing for all …

    Wear it without looking like a complete tool

    That's quite a USP

    Not quite a plantronics though

    For 50 knicker you can get a Plantronics Voyager Pro+ which destroys this in comfort and clarity

      You're totally correct!

      However the Voyager Pro looks like every other ridiculously obvious Bluetooth headset!

      I think you're missing the point of this product.

        When is that applicable though

        How often would you be wearing a headset in a situation where your appearance is an issue? I use mine in the office and in the car, neither of which are fashion shows. If I'm about town I just use my phone like everybody else. No-one's going to see you looking like a comfortable goon.

        I'd rather people though I was wearing a headset...

        .. than think I'm trying to look like I'm on Star Trek.

          indeed

          i'd rather my headset work and be comfortable. Surely that is the point of them?

          The main issue for me is being comfortable with glasses on.

    Still waiting

    Bluetooth headsets compatible with "HD voice" (a.k.a. wideband audio) are due out very soon. This one looks nice, but given that headsets generally last many years longer than phones, I think I'll wait for an HD set.

    El reg's scoring make no sense...

      WTF?

      same title

    Self conscious

    Who will be the first manufacturer to produce a Bluetooth headset that is a direct copy of the NHS hearing aid design?

    Nobody will think you a tool for wearing one and you can selectively ignore awkward questions !

    I think...

    ...I could lose this under my flowing locks...

    Without in-ear ?

    I can't wear in-ear types (long story), but I would like something unobtrusive like this.

    Any suggestions please ? (Sensible ones only :) )

    This review leaves me with . . .

    . . . many questions. Since every other review I have ever seen on this piece says they suck in many ways. Pretty, but sucks. How much did you get paid to write this?

    Bluetooth headsets

    One thing I hate about Bluetooth headsets is that while you are walking, you will see people suddenly saying "Hello", then you turn round and see they are talking into space. I used to think there were people talking to themselves, until I heard about Bluetooth headsets,
