The Jabra Halo Smart is great for music and calls

Because of limitations, wireless headphones will either deliver great music or a great call experience, but Jabra is looking to break that mold with the launch of the Jabra Halo Smart, which delivers a full spectrum sound for music, full controls for navigating media, and has built-in high-quality microphones with integrated wind-noise reduction.

According to recent Jabra insights, a combination of Jabra commissioned survey and studies, 79 percent of users would like to have one set of headphones for both calls and music. It is based on this study that Jabra developed the Neck-band style Jabra Halo Smart.

The wireless headphones offer 17 hours of talk time, or 15 hours of music with its 230mAh battery. On Android, the Jabra Halo Smart interfaces with the Jabra Assist app which allows users to track their exact battery usage and receive alerts when the battery is getting low.

Jabra Halo Smart also features a smart tactile interface. While having the wireless headphones resting around their neck, users can answer calls simply by removing one of their earbuds. It also lets users access Siri or Google Now at a touch. A subtle vibration in the neckband alerts of incoming calls, whilst Android users can expect readouts of calendar notifications, emails, text messages, and social media messages as well.

“We are all doing more with our smartphones than ever before, whether it’s making and taking calls, listening to music on-the-move or watching a movie clip during a break. So we wanted to develop a set of wireless headphones that delivers amazing sound whatever you’re doing whether taking calls or listening to music,” said Calum MacDougall, SVP at Jabra.

Jabra Halo Smart is available in three colors: Impact Red, Electric Blue, and Classic Black, with the recommended retail price of RM399.
