Jabra ships HALO headset

Jabra on Monday began shipping its latest Bluetooth A2DP compatible headset, the dual-microphone HALO, which was first introduced in April. The headset is compatible with BlackBerry handsets as well as Apple's iPhone and second-generation iPod touch, and can sync with two devices simultaneously. The headset can be folded for ease of carrying and has a 3.5mm headset jack and cable to connect to source devices when Bluetooth cannot be used or isn't an option. The HALO's display shows battery and connection status, while a touch-based volume control lets users adjust the loudness of the headset.

There is noise-cancelling built-in, as well as a bass-enhancing feature. Talk time and music listening is rated at eight hours on a single charge, with standby at 13 days. Support on Apple's touchscreen devices requires running iPhone 3.0 firmware on either an iPhone, a second-generation iPod touch or future supporting devices.

The Jabra HALO is now at Best Buy stores and the retailer's online store, priced at $130, before it ships to other locations. It will be available at Canadian Best Buy stores in October.
