Jabra Halo 2 Stereo Bluetooth Headset, headphones

I had the original jabra halo when they came out and loved them so had no hesitation in upgrading to these, the jabra halo2. For those worried about the fragility of this type of headphone, i can only say that i had my first ones for 3 years and wore them daily on my way to work and only decided to replace them because i like the look of the jabra2 and yes there are some slight improvements, again no problems, they’re extremely comfortable, the sound quality is fantastic and the volume control is a great improvement over the original which was admittedly a little hit & miss, this one however is as precise as you could wish. I would definately recommend.

They ok if in a quiet environment, if busy environment loose contact very often.

What a sound, simple handling, good batterylife and nice design. Works good with my galaxy note oneand my laptop.

Dad loves this so i’ve ordered 5 more . Clear conversations good volume and wireless so what more can u ask for. And connects to any smart phone via bluetooth.

I got this for my husband who refuses to have a hands free kit in the car.

So far so good, all as advertised, pleased :-).

I think the headphones are a blast. Unfortunately they arrived with a european and not a british electrical plug.

Really happy with the halo2 headset. Out of the box, pairing with the nexus 7 was instantaneous and effortless. Sound quality is crisp and rich both for music and conversation. Controls mostly work, volume is good, pause/play no problems, ff/rev not so consistent, but i think that has more to do with the music player you are using. I’ve been trying a few to see which works best with the headset. I’m also using with skype on the nexus 7 and it’s been fine. It’s worth noting the micro usb wall plug that comes with this headset is european style, not uk. However i don’t find this a problem as i use the micro usb to /usb charger that also come with it. In addition, really like the ability to use this as a wired headset if needed – however also good to note that the headset doesn’t work wired if it is completely out of charge. Charge time was relatively quick about 2 hours.

Nice fit, but sent back as kept cutting out on my iphone.

Item looks very sleek and are very comfortable to wear. Very easy to connect with bluetooth to your phone, the sound is also good. You can use them to speak through your phone and the sound quality is quite good,here are the downfall of these headphones. They have no on/ off button you have to fold them to turn them off which is a pain as you think your going to break them. The battery life is not great you get approx 4 hours and even when you turn them off the battery goes down. Whilst wearing the headphones you can’t move to far away from your phone or you loose the sound and the headphones become very distorted. My hubby was going to have a pair but decided against them he went for another brand and i have got to say they are amazing. Not so good on the eye as the jabra but what quality. He gets 10 hours battery life and whilst paired with his phone he just says the name of the person he wants to phone and they dial. Also has great controls on the headpiece.

I bought these headphones mainly because i was tired of sitting at my desk with a 2 metre cable running from my headphones to a laptop only half a metre away so i can’t say much about how they perform while out and about. What i can say is, if you plan on using these with a mac, don’t bother. I have two macs: a 2008 mbp and a 2011 air, both of them have a really annoying habit of stuttering exactly every 15 minutes. I cannot figure out why, and have trawled the web looking for answers to no avail. Initially when connected to an iphone i was also getting the stuttering but that seems to have gone away, and lately while connected to the phone the headphones work reasonably well. Jabra support have not been helpful at all. Typical canned responses telling me to take the battery out of my phone, and remove the pairing etc. My query was actually about connecting to a computer, not a phone. When i got irate about that they appeared to actually read the question but were still no help. In the end though, i don’t really blame jabra for the issues i’ve had.

  1. 2.0 out of 5 stars They work! says:
    So this is my first review, and this is because i want to warn as i buy many tech and usually so impressed that i feel i don’t need to comment but for this product i found that yes i can listen to videos and music and yes if the phone rings i can talk to someone but at the end of the day i live in chelsea london england and as soon as i step out of the door i cant hear any thing. Music and videos has to be in a quite place and phone conversations people say i sound like i’m in the bathroom. Now i main purchased them to talk to people as i have a samsung tab2 for my phone and as long as i can talk to people i’m not worried but as i cant listen to anything in public with videos and music this is where this head set fails. But on a good note i’m still considering jabra for my next purchase as i use jabra at work and will be buying the jabra revo wireless as this is more for me i hope. If you want this product for indoors then this is for you if you live in a quite home but if you want it indoors mainly for the phone i would try one of the other cheaper ear pieces.
