Jabra's Stone headset debuts

updated 12:50 am EDT, Tue October 20, 2009

Jabra intros ultra-minimal Stone headset

Jabra early today launched the Stone as its signature Bluetooth headset. The earpiece is just a slim curve that escapes the bulky look of most headsets and even eliminates buttons, opting instead for touch-sensitive controls. It earns its name from a distinctive charging dock that exactly matches the earpiece's shape and creates the effect of a smooth stone when the two are together.

Although simple in looks, the Stone has noise cancellation as well as the option of working in A2DP mode for music in addition to the usual hands-free mode. The small size dictates a low battery life of just two hours per charge, but the charger itself can work without a power cord for as many as three charges.

Jabra's new headset works with any Bluetooth phone, but it will lure iPhone customers first as it should reach AT&T retail shops first on November 8th, when it will sell for $130.
