The Jabra Halo looks very similar to the Jaybird Sportsband, although we have not been able to find direct comparisons in terms of sound, and especially when it comes to features for sports usage. They do however come out strong in reviews when it comes to sound quality, with a crisp and clear sound, including when taking or making calls with is dual microphones.
The design of the Jabra Halo is sleek and stylish with its lightly padded earpieces that sits comfortably on the ears. Some reports that the earpieces does not fit as tightly on the ears as they would like, which perhaps makes them less friendly for active sports use where one needs them to fit more snuggly.
They stand out a bit from many of the other bluetooth headphones when it comes to control usability with their touch control on one of the earpieces. One quick press will answer the call, with a second press ending the call. Volume control is done by sliding your finger up or down on the touch surface.
Battery life on the Jabra Halo is not bad, offering up to 8 hours talk time and 13 hours stand by time, and they come with a charger.
The Jaybird 200 stereo bluetooth headset is available from amongst other the following UK retailers:
