MU­SICBAND

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - MOBILES -

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.
