Introduction to Jabra Stealth and Step Wireless
As a techy family, we have a love for our gadgets, especially when we get to try out new ones! A few months ago, I shared the Jabra Style with you, a gadget that I still love. However, this time around, I got to try out the Jabra Stealth Bluetooth Headset and the Step Wireless Bluetooth Headphones. These gadgets were so impressive, I decided to write a comprehensive review on them.
Jabra Stealth Bluetooth Headset
The Jabra Stealth takes Bluetooth headsets to the next level by being the first to incorporate the breakthrough microPOWER battery technology. This technology allows for a significantly smaller design, longer talk time, and a better comfort experience. The headset is so discreet and comfortable, you’ll hardly realize you’re wearing it. The Jabra Stealth is one of the slimmest Bluetooth headsets I’ve tried, measuring 2.57 x 0.61 x 0.95 inches and weighing just 0.28 ounces.
Key Features of Jabra Stealth
- Smartphone voice control button for remote activation of Siri/Google Now
- Noise blackout dual microphone reduces background noise
- HD Voice* for high-definition sound quality

Comfort and Ease of Use
The Jabra Stealth fits comfortably in a normal-sized ear. If the default eargel doesn’t fit well in your ear, you can try out the included eargels of different sizes. The headset is comfortable to wear for most of the day and I often forgot I was wearing it thanks to its light and balanced weight.
Step Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
The Step Wireless allows you to give up the cords and listen to music, play games, and take calls on-the-go in high-quality stereo sound. These noise-isolating earbuds may be small but they pack an impressive sound. What’s more, they’re so light and comfortable, you might even forget they’re there. The Step Wireless earbuds are also dust and water-resistant, making them ideal for workouts or taking calls on-the-go.
Design and Functionality
Jabra’s Step Wireless is lightweight and stylish, weighing in at under 17 grams. The right earbud houses the micro-USB connector and charging/streaming LED. The LED flashes two colors – red and blue – to highlight the earbud’s state of operation. The earbuds rest comfortably in the ear, no matter how you use them.
Sound Quality and Noise Isolation
Listening to music is a breeze with the Step Wireless, offering crisp and clear sound. The voice clarity during phone calls is pretty good too. The noise bleeding is next to zero when listening to music even at the max level.
The Jabra Stealth and Step Wireless are high-quality, comfortable, and feature-packed gadgets. They offer excellent sound quality, extended battery life, and a range of features that make them a great choice for anyone in need of a reliable and efficient Bluetooth headset and headphones.
