How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The Jabra Halo2 may not be as lightweight as a pair of earbuds or tiny one-ear Bluetooth headset. But it provides some of the best sound quality available in a wireless model, and also includes good noise-reduction technology and dual mics to improve call quality. It also comes with a wire that can connect to any device with a 3.5mm headphone jack, so you can use it with your non-Bluetooth devices as well. And for those who think an over-the-ear model is too bulky, the Halo 2 folds, making it highly portable.
