The "Halo 2" is the second edition of Jabra's "Halo" line of wireless stereo headsets. This is both a wireless headset and a standard headset with a 1/8" jack.
The set comes with:
Micro USB-AC plug
Micro USB-1/8 jack
Micro USB-USB port
I've had wireless Bluetooth headsets in the past and every time I've gone back to the store to return them for a refund because the sound-reproduction was horrible. I also have several Bluetooth earpieces and I use them mainly for conversations when I'm on the road. I never use those single earpieces for music anyway since I have my regular earbuds handy when I'm on the bus or train.
BTW, most of the Bluetooth headsets you'll find up until recently had a base station that you had to connect to your Bluetooth device in order for you to hear out of the headset. That didn't impress me, so to see companies like Jabra who also make their "Sport" line of truly wireless headsets as well as Bose, these devices have come a long way.
After I made my Evo 3D discoverable, I watched some videos--comedy, music and interviews--and was wonderfully impressed with the sound. (I can now listen to Lisa Lampinelli roast whomever without having to turn down the volume in order not to insult anyone delicate taste.)
I also watched a two-hour documentary, Turtle: The Incredible Journey (2D & 3D) [DVD] on Netflix after I made my laptop discoverable. It was just like I was in my own private theatre with Dolby Surround Sound.
I also turned off the Bluetooth receiver and plugged the headset into my Sony stereo and played selections from The Barry White Boxed Set: Just For You (4 CD Boxed Set). To hear The Maestro and his deep baritone is to hear music at its best. You can't go cheap with a techie device like this and spending upwards of a $100. And, you're not shortchanged here for audio fidelity. Construction's another issue, but we'll get to that in a moment.
The headset, when fully charged by my testing is roughly 5 hours. About 4 hours, 45 minutes to be more exact. But, the farther away you have the headset from the discoverable-device, the shorter the battery life.
Calls, both listening and speaking was excellent. People on the other line couldn't distinguished when I went outside from when I was inside. This is as good or better than the mid-ranged price earpieces on the market today, including Jabra's own.
This is the Elephant-in-the-room sort of speak. This is a headset that can (or may) replace several different kinds of headphones you may own. The versatility of a wireless headphone means that you walk, run and sit reclined while your device is safely stored away. This device also brings high-fidelity. The sound reproduction is above par and better than many mid-priced sets. But...
You have a headset that is BOTH constructed for the smaller-sized head and a headset that is very delicately made. This is not an oversight that I can neglect to mention.
Since this is a one-size-fit-all deal, it will present a problem because it is not a one-size-fit-all piece. The headband is roughly 3/8" thick with about half of that wrapped in a thin felt material. IF I have an average sized head (although the lady tells me that I have a bigger-than average mouth), the headset fits VERY snugly. The earpads only dropdown in length, not width.
If that were not enough, the headset is VERY delicate. The headset can fold inside, but I was so scared pushing in the arms the first time that I though it necessary to just keep them open and not risk that joints breaking.
The question remains not if they'll break, but when. So, you'll have to bear this in mind.
+ Great audio reproduction, exceptional for stereo wireless headset.
+ Very good vocal-call reception.
+ Plug-in capacity for times when Bluetooth is not needed or inaccessible.
+ 4.5 hours of battery life. 2 hours for recharging.
+ Reasonably priced.
- Poor construction. VERY delicate.
So, 5 minus 1 = 4 stars.
I have been high and low looking for wireless headphones (for my iphone) - I can't believe we are still using wires for something which sits less than a metre away in your pocket OR that the only decent headphones in this category are over £200 - how long have we had bluetooth now?!
Anyway. A friend of mine recommended the Jabras to me on the bus one day, I tried them for 5 mins on my own iphone and thought wow, these are superb. Stylish, clever folding mechanism, touch sensitive controls, sound quality was brilliant and for under £80! I gotta get me some of those... but that was exactly my problem, I only listened to them for 5 mins sitting on a bus, about 2 days later the same friend warned me off them however because the bluetooth connection kept breaking. I thought, nah.. it must be just you. Ill try them anyway. But low and behold it happened to me too.
IF you want to use these sitting still at your desk or in your house these are the best I have tried at this price, buy them! BUT for me a pair of headphones designed to be wireless means they are meant to be portable.. As soon as I stepped outside my house and started walking round, in and out of shops.. the connection is terrible, like a broken record. It must be outside electronic interference or something, Im no scientist, but they literally could not cope with the streets of London. I did not get a continued period of music for more that 5 mins in the 48 hours I had them.
I actually also found them slightly uncomfortable after longer periods of listening. They don't sit securely on my head and because of the lack of a snug fit on my ears I didn't actually get to hear the great sound quality - drowned out by the noise of the underground trains. The design is quite rigid so, unless you have flat ears (I do not) you aren't going to get them to sit on your head without them falling off when you walk up and down stairs. Ridiculous.
Im currently in the process of getting a refund, my search goes on for a good all round pair of wireless headphones for the iphone. WHERE ARE YOU!?
