Designed for those who want a great calling experience, music on-
the-go and the ability to switch easily between the two, the new Jabra Halo Smart wireless headphones have been developed with voice and call quality top-of-mind.

According to recent Jabra insights*, 79% of users would like to have one set of headphones for both calls and music, but believe the call experience on most headphones designed for music devices is poor. Jabra Halo Smart delivers a superior call experience thanks to high-quality microphones with integrated wind-noise protection, enhanced voice capabilities via a dedicated Google Now/Siri
button and immersive, full-spectrum sound through its 10mm speakers.

A 230mAh battery and optimised battery performance removes the hassle of having to constantly charge the 38g headset, and enables the Jabra Halo Smart to offer 17 hours of talk time, or 15 hours of music time. Android users can track battery usage on the Jabra Assist app, receive alerts when the battery is getting low and get notifications about when the next recharge is likely required, based on historical usage.

A subtle vibration in the neckband alerts you to incoming calls, whilst Android users can expect readouts of calendar notifications, emails, text messages and social media messages.

“We are all doing more with our smartphones than ever before, whether it’s making and taking calls, listening to music on-the-move or watching a movie clip during a break. So we wanted to develop a set of wireless headphones that delivers amazing sound whatever you’re doing whether taking calls or listening to music”, explains Calum MacDougall, SVP at Jabra.


Jabra Halo Smart is available in three colours: Impact Red, Electric Blue and Classic Black. It is available both online and retail via gowireless.com.sg, Challenger, DigitalStyle, Harvey
Norman, Newstead Technologies, Stereo Electronics, and Apple Authorized Resellers from mid-July
onwards. The headphones have a recommended retail price of S$138.
