I was never a fan of big clunky ugly bluetooth headsets since the days I started using mobile phones. To me, they all looked ugly. Until recently, I felt there was a need to get a headset as I was on the phone much more for work and it was really uncomfortable holding onto to a mobile for long periods of time. Until I saw the Jabra Stone3, I was quite tempted by the Jawbone Era sold by Amazon as it was available with free global shipping. Now it’s probably a toss-up. Dang, choices and choices.
Wow. That was the first impression that struck me (sidebar: I had a really tough time getting out of the pretty display case). This was a really slick and good-looking device. The build is a little flimsy and I have at times worried about breaking the set.
It was really easy to pair and use, and it looked good on the ears. The controls probably take a while to get used to, I’m still trying to figure it out. The audio quality has been great so far for conversations, but I have not used it to listen to songs. I prefer to use proper earphones for my music.
At first I was worried about the possible short talk time of the device, but having a charging stone that can act as a portable charger for a total of up to 10-hours of talk seemed like a wise decision. But that also means another device to bring along. Considering that I already carry a ton of gadgets around, it is a slight hassle but a trade-off for much more talk time.
I will be using this headset over the next week or so, and expect a more complete write-up of the Jabra Stone3!
