With the launch of the iPhone 7 appeared on the market handset AirPods that hardly met with a warm reception from the industry – many people have had big problems with the design, but also simply feared it is that simply gets lost its steam. The solution to both problems may be new headset from Jabra. Halo Smart is also a wireless headset using Bluetooth, but designed so that we can have confidence that not getting lost them at the first opportunity. And they work with any smartphone and the device equipped with Bluetooth.
Appearance, design, flexible headband
We owe this fact known structures with several handsets for active people – the headphones are connected because of the very light headband assumed neck. In the event of a fall out of the ear headphones so we are sure that they will not fall to us on the ground, and just hang on kabelku attached to a headband. The whole structure is very light and definitely not tired neck – it looks a little different, but the situation with adherence to our body. Perhaps it is just my personal problem, but in spite of regulation sides headband sensed clearances between the whole structure, and my neck. If the sides of the headband is adjustable and can be bent so himself back no longer and inaccurate adhesion manifested also not quite comfortable to wear, because it is pure plastic. Could use some rubber lining inside the headband, which would slightly reduce the effect.The set included are obviously three sets of ear rubber bands of various sizes – this allows them to fit the ear and the selection of appropriate overlays must admit that the headphones are holding ears really pretty good. It seems, however, that the package should find even a little bigger eraser – so comfort (at least in my case) will be increased even more.

Battery, charging, working time, use
Loading headphones is via the supplied USB cable – power socket has been placed in the back of the headband and hidden using a special plug. As a result, it does not stand out from the whole structure. We will not, however, use it too often – even at a few hours of use handsets per day (both to talk and to listen to music) loading of LIVE headset will be necessary only every 3-4 days. It confirmed the information so the manufacturer, according to which the energy in the headphones is enough for us for about 17 hours of use. This is a very good result for wireless headphones.The use of headphones does not pose any problems – buttons to adjust the volume and launch voice assistant are placed on the headband. In the case of Siri or Google Now with just one click. Ciekawey patent involves the use of magnets in the headphones. Merge the headphones disconnects the call, turn the other way the effect is quite the opposite. However, it is rather little practical solution, because wearing headphones hanging is not very convenient. It is also worth mentioning the vibrations that appear on the headband when someone is trying to reach you – a cool Bajer, although the strength of the vibration is not too great.
The quality of calls and music
Sam connectivity smartphone or other device with Bluetooth is very simple and does not pose virtually no problems. The connection is not in any disturbed and interrupted and headphones allow the use of very convenient to use features that support is Siri or Google Now, voice or assistants in the operating systems Android and iOS, and you have to admit that this cooperation is carried out almost perfectly. In the case of Google Now with a single button you can gain access to many basic functions of the phone, and even will read text messages or notifications from social networking sites. In this respect, the Jabra Halo Smart can not have any objections.Tested headphones were doing very well when it comes to voice calls – a headset, which for this purpose will work really well. This refers especially built-in microphone, which is wither gusty winds and less than perfect weather conditions, such as even the rain. Given the fact that the autumn season is approaching with great strides, purity transmitted voice is very important as the Jabra Halo Smart will offer. The conversation itself is also really quite comfortable and although suppression of sounds from the outside is not perhaps at the highest level, the volume and purity of sound is at the appropriate level. Jabra Halo Smart pretty well suited also when it comes to listening to music with one exception – if you need a strong, expressive bass, certainly in this model, it will not find. Strong and low impact in many cases are a bit too flat, which of course works in favor of a much calmer rhythms or rock music. To distinct pieces of hip-hop or dance'owych this set may not be suitable.

And better yet, when we have the freedom offered by wireless headphones. That is the way the headset to answer the call. Not until the end of the handset they prove themselves in all sorts of dynamic physical activities. Running in them is not very comfortable, and the risk of falling earphones is pretty big. If that's what sport is the main reason why you decided to wireless headphones, probably better to wait for our test model Jabra Elite Sport, which should be available on the market since November.
