Jabra's New Wireless Headset Makes it Easier to Connect Two Bluetooth Devices

By Marisa Torrieri, TMCnet Editor

If you love your BlackBerry or iPhone (News - Alert), but you still fumble around your over-stuffed messenger bag to turn down the ringer when you’re out to lunch, Jabra’s got a new device that might make your life a little easier.

On Monday, GN Netcom unveiled Jabra’s (News - Alert) HALO Bluetooth stereo headset, which lets users connect to two Bluetooth-enabled devices, including mobile phones, MP3 players, video-game consoles and laptops. The compact, foldable, three-ounce device offers wireless connectivity within a 30-foot operating range. Plus, it’s compatible with BlackBerry devices, Apple’s iPhone and the iPod Touch.
“The Jabra HALO provides the ultimate audio experience, while maximizing portability and versatility,” said Jonas Forsberg, general manager of GN Netcom’s (News - Alert) North American mobile division.
Jabra officials were not immediately available for comment.
HALO’s features include intuitive on/off functionality, a discreet display to reveal battery and connectivity status, a touch-volume control (so users can control the phone via a headset). Also, the HALO fades out music for incoming calls. Should a device not support Bluetooth stereo (A2DP) technology, the headset has the versatility to switch between wireless and wired connectivity.
The device is available exclusively at U.S. Best Buy stores and BestBuy.com for $129.99.
