There have been quite a few Bluetooth headsets available in the market that gave you the cordless experience. But none has been as attractive and classy as the Jabra Halo 2.
Unlike other traditional over-the-ear headphones, this one doesn’t have big ear cups. Instead, this sleek and slim unit, resembles a broad hair band with the rectangular extensions, which are actually the ear cups. Well padded from inside, the Halo 2 is very comfortable to wear.
The Halo 2 is also a great design, for not many controls have been placed on the headband except for the physical circular key and touch sensitive volume controls on the right. The key has multiple-functionality as it answers and disconnects the call and while playing music it can be used as a play/pause button. A double tap on the volume controls changes the tracks.
And to turn off the headset, all yu have to do is to fold the head band. This also makes it easy to carry. Snapping it back into position restarts the unit.
The Halo 2 is easy to pair with other devices and has a sound quality that is rich and clear. Although Jabra claims to have added noise cancellation, the sound output wasn’t very clear in noisy surroundings. The battery backup was close to 7 hours with a mixture of music and calls. For a wireless device, the Halo 2 comes with a wall charger, USB cable and a 3.5 mm connecting cable.
