Jabra Halo Bluetooth Headset Review

Introduction & Overview

The Jabra Halo, designed essentially for the iPhone and iPod touch, utilises Bluetooth audio streaming in order to deliver a portable, wireless headset. The unit, at first glance, appears pretty simple, with a single plastic band forming the outer structure.

However, the Halo is anything but a simple, run-of-the-mill headset. Two foldable arms allow the lightweight headset to fold-up and fit easily into a pocket or bag and what’s even neater is that, when the arms are locked out, the Halo automatically turns on ready to use.


A quick note on the accessories: Jabra bundles a series of manuals alongside a carry-case, charger and cable for using the Halo as a wired device.

As just mentioned, the headphones are extremely lightweight – the total weight measures in at 80g. Yet, this takes nothing away from the comfort: the fabric padding and adjustable size ensuring it fits well.

The earpieces are essentially just an extension of the headband; the insides formed of the same black material. Whilst, in appearance they are almost identical, one side has a single, round button for turning the device on and a volume slider. Note also, that double-tapping the ends of the volume control act as track skipping buttons.


Pairing the Jabra Halo is an easy task; simply enable Bluetooth on the iPhone and search devices to find the Halo. Once connected, tap into the default 0000 passcode and you’re ready to roll.
