The wireless headset’s most distinguishing design element is the contoured neckband that has wires sticking out on one of the ends for the earbuds. The right side of the neckband houses volume and playback controls, while the middle multifunction button powers the headset on and off, answers and end calls and plays and pauses audio. The volume buttons can also be used to skip or go back a track by holding them for one second. On the left side of the band, there is a microphone button that triggers an active voice assistant, such as Cortana, Google Now or Siri. Under the black plastic tab, there is Micro USB slot that is covered by a rubber flap.
To make the neckband more adjustable when putting it on or taking it off, inner sides are rippled and called “Flex Zones.” Connecting the two earbuds using the magnets has different functions; for instance, detaching them can answer a phone call, while attaching them will automatically end the call. A fairly large battery is placed inside the band to give the earphones an extended operation of up to fifteen hours for music and seventeen hours of call time.
Pros and Cons
The Jabra Halo Smart wireless headset is sturdily built in a neckband style that works great for making cell phone calls. It offers a decent sound for music along with an excellent battery life. Another positive thing is that whenever there is an incoming call, the neckband vibrates. On the other hand, the included ear tips do not offer a secure fit that leads to a reduction in sound quality.
From the moment you begin your day, Jabra Halo Smart Wireless Bluetooth Headset will be there to receive your calls, keep you on track with your schedule, organize your workload and play your music with an incredible sound quality. The customers who have purchased the earpiece love it because it is very comfortable to wear and has a long-lasting battery life. You can get a good amount of volume and adjust it according to your needs. However, some of the users commented that the controls of the headset are not very convenient as well as the fit is not very secure.
