The Jabra Stealth is definitely an impressive and comfortable Bluetooth headset that features superior audio quality together with long battery life in a tiny form factor.

What's good

  • Premium design and build quality
  • Slim and lightweight
  • Good voice recognition for Siri/Google Now

What's bad

  • Low volume for calls and music
  • No dedicated volume rocker on device

There's a reason Jabra chose the word stealth for the Jabra Stealth headset. It measures 0.6 inches wide and 2.6 inches long and weighs a mere 7.9 grams. For most reviewers, it was light and small enough to wear for hours on end without issue with some forgetting they were wearing it at all. Design-wise, the Stealth doesn't stray too far from the traditional candy bar shape. While not revolutionary in appearance, experts appreciated Jabra's effort to give the headset a more premium appearance from its matte rubber finish to the silver trim. Despite its lightweight and small size, reviewers were impressed with its sturdy build quality. There are only two buttons on the device: answer/end calls that also pairs with your phone when pressed for three seconds and the Google Now/Siri voice command button.

Audio quality is one of the biggest pitfalls of headsets, but this is where the Stealth shines. Experts praise the "crystal clear" quality of incoming and outgoing calls and add that background noises were generally blocked out due to Jabra's Noise Blackout noise cancellation technology. Their only major complaint was the overall volume of calls and music. In general, they found it to be relatively quiet though things like notifications and prompt sounds tended to be much louder. Unfortunately, there is no dedicated volume rocker. Instead, volume can only be controlled through the phone.

Jabra rates the Stealth at 6 hours of talk time, which was consistent with reviewer tests. Pocket Insider was able to average 10 calls a day each lasting around 15 minutes with the device powered on the entire time. Once the battery has drained, it took experts around 2 hours to recharge completely.

Overall, reviewers recommend the Jabra Stealth. Technology Tell says, "If powerful, comfortable and discrete are what you're looking for, you probably won't find anything better than the Stealth."
