Jabra (http://www.jabra.com) has announced the US$129.99 Jabra Stone2, a new Bluetooth headset that “talks” to users thanks to its Voice System. It will go on sale Nov. 21.
With Voice Control, you can make calls using the sound of your voice (such as “Call Dad”), answer an incoming call by saying “Answer,” and reject a call by saying “Ignore.” The Jabra Stone2’s Voice Guidance feature lets you hear the name of an incoming caller through the headset (for example, “Mom Cell” or “David’s Work”), exactly how you have the caller programmed into your phone. If the caller’s number isn’t saved to your phone, the headset will read out the phone number.
A “Connected” audio alert means the Stone2 is paired with your mobile device. The headset signals a “Low Battery” audio alert when it needs to be charged. Battery levels also appear on the iPhone. What’s more, the Stone2 talks users through an easy set-up process of pairing the headset to a mobile or smart phone.
