What customers say about "Key Specs"
Jabra Stealth Bluetooth Headset - Black
  • Good sound - certainly good enough for calls and podcasts. Not ideal for music, of course, but it works.
  • Good mic - callers never complain about noise.
  • Call quality is flawless, which per me should the main feature of a good headset (clear music and other controls are kind of a standard in almost every headset in the market).
  • Good external noise reduction. Consistent top quality sound on both ends.
  • The audio on my end get distorted some time, but fairly rarely. Maybe once or twice a week.
  • Don't expect it to block out lots of loud background noise, but it may block moderate to low background noise.
Jabra Steel Ruggedized Bluetooth Headset
  • Sound quality is great. Noise cancellation is great too.
  • The wind and background noise reduction on this earpiece is incredible. I work in an incredibly loud environment and other than the absolute worse situations people can hear me and respond. In fact, they can hear me when I can't hear myself.
  • Great earbud, especially for noise cancellation which is what I was looking for. Everyone can hear me even in the most harsh background noises.
  • Noise cancellation is aggressive. The fit is troublesome. I have trouble keeping the device in postion.
  • Hard to hear on freeway if the caller is quiet or on speakerphone.
  • It is quieter than most, but still works well enough for me.

What customers say about "Features"
Jabra Stealth Bluetooth Headset - Black
  • Simple on/off -- an instant switch (not: hold some multi-function button for 5 seconds or whatever).
  • Voice commands are quite useful.
  • The MultiUse feature allows you to pair up to 8 devices individually or 2 at the same time. I paired mine to my laptop using an USB bluetooth adapter and it never skips a beat between the two connections.
  • When I play a video on the laptop the phone goes silent and vice-versa. It's a great feature that now I can't live without.
  • I can not wear this device with the plastic ear hook attachments as it caused great pain and aches in my ear after wearing it for approximately 1-2+ hours.
  • No volume or pause controls; use the phone for this (not a big deal for me).
  • I don't like the little flap that covers the micro USB port. It will probably break off eventually but that shouldn't be a big deal sisnce most units don't start with a cover anyway.
Jabra Steel Ruggedized Bluetooth Headset
  • Supposedly water and dust resistant. (have not even tried to quickly rinse it under a faucet.)Works in normal relatively quiet environments.
  • It has a rugged design, but is light weight and extremely comfortable to wear.
  • In the box you receive the headset, 2 wind socks, 2 spare rubber ear pieces, a spare ear clip, and a charging cord.
  • The voice quality is great, features and functionalities are great including voice commands to call, redial, answer, reject, texting etc.
  • I would give 2 Stars for volume and noise cancellation, but gave it 3 stars because it works for if it's quiet and may be water-resistant.
  • NO volume control, too quiet even with phone turned up to max.

What customers say about "Power"
Jabra Stealth Bluetooth Headset - Black
  • Battery life seems to be about what the 6 hour life claim is.
  • Another plus is battery life. I have only been using it for a couple of weeks, but I went 3 days with several calls and it on most of the time and it showed a battery life of 85%.
  • Decent battery life of 5-6 hours.
  • The battery life is good enough but I find that I wish it had another hour or so.
  • When the battery gets below two hours left, callers will sometimes complain that I am breaking up.
  • Only minor downside is the battery life could be a little longer.
Jabra Steel Ruggedized Bluetooth Headset
  • Charging time - It says 2 hours but its usally an hour and a half to an hour forty.
  • Battery life varies based on talk, media use, or standby. I have no complaints from it.
  • Battery life is awesome and charges fast. Quality is good overall, buttons are very easy to use.
  • The battery life is short. If used moderately heavy, it will not last an 8 hour work day.
  • The battery life is short. If used moderately heavy, it will not last an 8 hour work day. The charging cord is very short.
