NASHUA, N.H., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ — GN Netcom, a world leader in innovative headset solutions, today announced the Jabra STONE, a revolutionary wireless headset that signals a new era in style and breaks the mold of the traditional Bluetooth® headset. The Jabra STONE will be available for $129.99 exclusively at AT&T retail stores nationwide beginning November 8, 2009.
With a shape like no other headset on the market, the Jabra STONE elegantly wraps behind the ear eliminating the standard on-face microphone and combining both style and functionality. The wireless portable charger functions as a compact carrying case that fits into the palm of your hand – simply plug your headset into the charger and power-up whenever and wherever you want. Combining the visual appeal with advanced technology, the Jabra STONE features Noise Blackout(TM) Extreme while taking the microphone arm off your face.

With a nearly invisible touch-controlled volume pad on the outside of the headset, users can simply slide their finger up or down to control the volume while on a call. The headset’s flexible frame is lined with soft rubber padding for optimal comfort. An ultra-soft ear gel around the speaker ensures a natural feel and the headset is flexible for a perfect fit.
The Jabra STONE is equipped with Noise Blackout(TM) Extreme technology, an innovative new generation of noise cancelling technology that reduces ambient sound without compromising voice quality.
