LG Tone - loved them, especially the magnetic ear bud holders. Sound was pretty good, but weighted on the ends more than I would have preferred. Used them for several years before the wire on one side shorted out.
Sony SBH70 - Sound is great! However, I ended up spending more money on ways to keep the darn ear pods in my ear. Also, hated the way they would dangle when not in my ears.
Sony SBH80 - Sound was not as good as the SBH70, which surprised and disappointed me. Plus, the ear buds also dangled when not in my ear.
MOTO Surround - Nice concept with the magnetic holders for the ear buds, but the sound simply was not up to par.
SoundPeats Q12 and Q29 - Loved the prices, but the sound was not adequate.
Sony MDRZX770BT - Over the ear headset with by far the best sound. These sound amazing, but not mobile and versatile as ear bud types.
Ok, so call me obsessive. It's ok, my wife does too. :-P I recently, and again Googled "Best Bluetooth headphones", narrowed down the search when possible on whatever site I landed on to review only ear bud style as well as around the neck style. When I saw that the Jabra Halo's had the magnetic holder capability for the ear buds, which keep one, or both out of the way when not using, I was intrigued. I was already aware of Jabra's quality with their mono Bluetooth ear pieces for years with call quality and all the reviews for the Jabra Halo mentioned their superior call quality and the Google Now/Siri integration. But, the music sound is what I am more concerned with as I use the headphones primarily for listening to music. I like to "plug in" when at work, but need the option to leave one ear free.
Well, I realize I have spent a lot of time jabbering, so now I will tell you all.... DO NOT listen to any reviewer who claims the sound quality when using for music playback is not good, very good, or even great. The Jabra Halo sounds AMAZING. The lows are smooth and deep without distortion. The highs and mids are perfectly tuned where neither the voices or the instruments are drowned out by each other and/or the bass. I am almost frustrated every time I look at all my other headphones laying around, or in a drawer... I wanted initially to leave the Jabra Halos at my work so they are always there and available, but now my dilemma is that I want these with me wherever I go! And with all this said, I never even mentioned the battery life! 2 to 3 times longer than ANY other Bluetooth headphone!
Do not even consider any other Bluetooth headphone if you are looking for an ear bud style, able to connect to multiple devices at the same time (laptop and phone), great phone call quality and absolutely awesome music playback sound quality. For less than $80!!! The Jabra Halo is a steal!
I find that the battery life on this really is as stated, or at least close enough I don't notice. I've gone on day trips out taking public transit and listening to music the entire time and got home with the iPhone battery indicator for it still showing half full, which was around 12 hours of battery use.
My one gripe with it would be the multipoint functionality could really use a way to switch devices. It's nice being hooked up to two devices at the same time, but I find myself having to turn off my BT on my phone sometimes to make sure that audio starts coming from my laptop, or vice versa, turning the BT off on my laptop to make sure audio comes from my phone. My work laptop has the bad habit of always transmitting a signal even when there is no audio being played, thus hogging the audio line. An extra button somewhere, or even part of the companion app, would make this much more useful.
Sometimes when a second device connects while on a call, or listening to music, there can be some scrambling of the audio, and a few times we've had to restart the call to fix it. A minor inconvenience when it's friends and family, but would frustrating if it was a business call.
I wear these while cycling on my daily commute, and when I'm doing a solo ride. It's nice that i can pull one bud out and have it stick to the magnetic strip on the side of the necklace to hear traffic if I want, but also find that even with both in and volume not too loud traffic doesn't seem to be an issue. They work great, too, when on my indoor trainer, even with all the sweat I haven't had any issues with crackling which I have gotten from other headphones.
The mute button works great, with the only annoyance being that the headset announcements override any audio. When you first press the button you'll stop hearing the conversation for a second when the headset informs you that you are now muted, and again when you unmute yourself. The same goes for when connecting to a second device, such as when I open my laptop while on a call with my wife, and the headset announces a second device is connected. This also apparently cuts out the microphone as my wife will begin asking if I'm still there as what I was saying is suddenly cut off.
Play and Volume Buttons
This is a great piece of functionality, it's generally easy to find the play button being the middle button, and located on the ride side of your neck. When connected to a Windows 8.1 laptop it starts Media player. I have not searched how to change that to a more preferable program, like iTunes perhaps, and generally I would like it to instead go to my phone, but that is such a personalized choice it would be hard to make a default that everyone would be happy with. There does seem to be a slight delay between pressing and music starting, and sometimes it seems that the music has trouble buffering to begin with as I'll get some broken up bits first before it starts streaming. Once I have a good connection and stream going the audio has not failed me or gone back to breaking up.
One Last Thing
A big gripe with BT and BT headphone makers is their poor excuse for bad BT connections being the customers fault for storing the phone in their back pocket or somewhere else where the signal must travel through our bodies. As a cyclist my back pocket on my jersey is a very common place to keep the phone. I'm very glad to report that I have never had an issue with audio chopping out due to cell phone placement. I'll place my phone in my jeans back pocket, or front pocket, in my cycling jersey, and even in my backpack, and have never encountered any trouble. Music still streams crystal clear. It's actually a great relief to no longer require a wired headset where I have to think about cable routing. Very good job on the part of Jabra for getting great battery life and a strong signal.
I also commonly walk around my house while talking on the phone with the phone staying in the bedroom. I probably get around 20ft away and still have good audio, though sometimes depending on the numbers of walls it has to go through I might start to get a little bit of chopped audio, but that is to be expected.
Overall I find this headset to be fantastic and highly recommend it to everyone looking for a new set. The docked star is due to my complaint over multipoint device selection. I don't know if this is a limitation of multipoint, or due to Jabra's implementation. It would be nice if a firmware update could add that functionality in, perhaps through a simultaneous pressing of the volume up and down button, or a long press on the mute button. But after figuring out some work arounds I'm still highly recommending this device.
