Designed for those who want a great calling experience, music on-the-go and the ability to switch easily between the two, the new Jabra Halo Smart wireless headphones have been developed with voice and call-quality top of mind.
Jabra Halo Smart delivers a superior call experience thanks to high-quality microphones with integrated wind-noise protection, enhanced voice capabilities via a dedicated Google Now/Siri button and immersive, full-spectrum sound through its 10mm speakers. With the addition of up to 17 hours talk time or 15 hours of music listening with just one charge, Jabra Halo Smart is intended to be used all-day, every day.
The intelligence of Jabra Halo Smart lies in its ability to let the user manage calls, music and media with just one device. According to recent Jabra insights*, 79 per cent of users would like to have one set of headphones for both calls and music, but believe the call experience on most music devices is poor. Jabra Halo Smart allows you to accept a call by separating the two earbuds as they rest around your neck, and use one earbud for phone calls or both for listening to music. It also lets you access Siri™ or Google Now™ at the touch of a button and keeps you connected and informed in a number of ways. A subtle vibration in the neckband alerts you to incoming calls, whilst Android users can expect readouts of calendar notifications, emails, text messages and social media messages.
“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 t deliver amazing sound whatever you’re doing whether taking calls or listening to music”, explains Calum MacDougall, SVP at Jabra.
When it comes to basics like battery life, Jabra Halo Smart removes the hassle of constantly charging your headphones. Unlike other solutions, it discretely incorporates a 230mAh battery into the back of the neckband using bendable “flex zones” to provide up to 17 hours talk time (or 15 hours of music listening) with just one charge. Moreover, by using the Jabra Assist app provided, you can track exact battery usage, receive alerts when the battery is getting low and get notifications about when you next need to recharge (based on historical usage).
Jabra Halo Smart is the latest addition to the Jabra Halo family of wireless headphones, designed for busy people who are looking for versatile headphones for multi-purpose use. The first headphones in the series are Jabra Halo Fusion.
