Minor usability quibbles aside, the Jabra HALO is a decent choice for anybody wanting both wireless media use and hands-free conversations. Dual connectivity is very handy, while the wired option provides a fall-back option for when you’re occasionally using a non-Bluetooth device. quote

Even if you could deal with the connection issues, the flimsy hinge makes me question how long the headset will last. Maybe if there was a dedicated power/sync button and you didn’t have to unfold the headset to power it on, I could somewhat recommend these.

If you’re looking for nonearbud headphones to handle music and calls—but primarily music—the Halo is a good choice. You’ll just have to tolerate the unfriendly volume and track-skipping controls.

The Jabra Halo is an attractive stereo Bluetooth headset, but that's about all we can say for it.

Audio performance is pretty good, providing a nice bassy, rich audio experience; the Jabra Halo perform better than many of the bundled in-ear headphones that you get with mobile phones. But the performance doesn't match that which you'll get from some of the more substantial cans out there.

To cap it off, we’d say that the Jabra Halo left mixed impressions with us. ... It is rife with cool ideas, like the folding design and touch-sensitive volume slider, but poor execution. The design is novel, slim and minimalistic, but maybe precisely because of that the headset rarely offers a...

There are plenty of things to like about the Halo. The folding design makes it easy to carry around, the call quality is first class and battery life isn't bad either. However, the problems with stuttering audio ..., plus the lackluster bass response stop us from giving it wholehearted praise.

We just can't recommend it for music, and that's a problem when it's what's supposed to separate your offering from others. Call quality is good and may still make it worth consideration, but if that's your main interest, you should be considering a less expensive single-piece headset instead.

The slider for audio is bad to use, double tapping it to switch songs does not work on my Android phone, only iPhone. The button does not pause the song on Android, but calls the last used phone number.

Device works well with two of mine Android devices, but there's a big problem with iOS devices (iPod Touch 4th gen and iPad 1st gen) - sound stops playing every couple of seconds and the controls on side don't work either. Funny thing is, when you first connect Jabra Halo to an Android phone and...
