Excerpt: Jabra may be known for their small, somewhat stylish Bluetooth headsets, but they don’t limit themselves to those. The company’s Halo is a multi-use stereo headset that works for calls but is also designed to handle media applications, like listening to music, watching videos, and that sort of thing. It has a foldable, over-the-head design that is far removed from the typical Bluetooth headset.
Summary: If you're looking for non-earbud headphones to handle music and calls, but primarily music, the Halo package is a good choice. You'll just have to tolerate the nonfriendly volume and track-skipping controls.

Cons: Bad music quality; occasional interference., Expensive for what you get., Twitchy touch controls., Wired listening still needs a battery charge.
Conclusion: In terms of music quality, the Jabra certainly performed far higher than we were expecting what with its compact design. The mid-to-high end frequencies are well catered for with clarity and although the bass response is somewhat disappointing, it has to be said that a unit of this size is never going to offer exceptional bass performance. Still, we must concede that if drum and bass is your thing, an over-ear headset might be a better option.
