We have long been impressed with what Jabra has to offer, from those amazing rugged portable Bluetooth speakers like the Jabra Solemate to those wireless headphones like the Jabra Sports Pulse. Now, we have to welcome another awesome headphone from the giant audio tech company and guess what? It is Jabra’s “first neckband-style headphone”. The neckband-style headphone, Jabra Halo Smart, retails at $80 which is already a good price for such with very considerable features.
What is special with Jabra’s first neckband-style headphone? First, it is a nicely designed wireless headphone which is surely adaptable to your audio experience requirements, certified to be water-resistant, works well as a headphone for making calls (with multiple microphones and noise reduction technology), and has great battery life for longer music enjoyment.
Aside from that, it also has some unique features that stand out among other neckband-style headphones out there. The Halo Smart is designed with ear buds that magnetically attaches to each other in order to keep them from being entangled and flopped around when they are not in use. Aside from that, the wireless headphone also has a vibrate feature which is useful whenever a call comes in. And for you to answer the call, you just have to pull the ear buds apart and place one or both the buds in your ears which are a few, simple process at all.
To provide variations, as well as a comfortable and secure fit for your ears, the Jabra Halo Smart comes with three sizes of ear tips. They are all in-ear tips which help in reducing ambient noises while in use.
For what we expected with the Jabra Halo Smart, the sound quality proves to be impressive and pretty decent. It is a decent-sounding Bluetooth headphone with clear and detailed sound and an ample bass. While streaming Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic” via Bluetooth, we really enjoyed the music because of its smooth sound balanced with a strong bass. Add to the impressive sound quality is its noise-reduction feature which works with a secure fit of the earbuds, thus delivering the enjoyable and satisfying sound quality.
If you are fond of listening to some motivating tracks while having your exercise in the gym or a run in the tracks, then this wireless headphone is a smart choice. As mentioned, the Jabra Halo Smart is water-resistant so you don’t have any worries of getting it damaged while you sweat.
Overall, the Jabra Halo Smart is a nice choice of wireless Bluetooth headphone with great value for $80. It has pretty impressive features that do not hurt you for spending or buying one for yourself. Even for “a first” in Jabra’s line of neckband-style headphone, the Halo Smart proved to be worthy because of its key features:
- Excellent sound quality due to its 10mm speakers
- Neckband-style for a comfortable, all-day use
- Integrated high-quality microphones and wind-noise protection for enhanced call quality
- Vibration alert for incoming calls
- Impressive battery life of up to 17 hours of music playback
