With a touch-sensitive control panel neatly tucked away on the side of the headset, you can even pump up the volume remotely. And there's no need to worry about missing a call when you're streaming music from a mobile because the Jabra HALO simply fades out your sounds to allow you to answer.

Developed by innovative headset solutions provider GN Netcom, the Jabra HALO features the classic over-the-head design that exudes coolness and is the ultimate in sophisticated music accessories. With intuitive on/off functionality, a discreet display to reveal battery and connectivity status, a touch volume control and a foldable headband, it is small enough (weighing just 80grams) to go where you go yet big enough to make a powerful fashion statement.

The HALO is compatible with any Bluetooth(R) wireless technology (A2DP) music-playing device and all 3.5 mm. music playing devices. It has the versatility to switch between wireless and wired connectivity, so you just need one headset to hear the sweet sounds from your mobile phone, laptop, MP3 player or even TV.

Crystal-clear sound quality also demands crystal-clear call quality and the HALO won't let you down. With Noise Blackout(TM), an exciting noise- cancellation technology that eradicates ambient sound, the person you are calling will feel like you are actually talking to them in person! Exclusively developed by GN Netcom, Noise Blackout(TM) uses dual microphones to capture sound while intelligently filtering background noise to offer premium audio quality. Used together with advanced DSP technology and Audio Shock Protection that monitors incoming audio volume, sound is innovatively balanced to block out background sound, leaving both sides of the call with a natural-sounding voice quality that's second to none.

The Jabra HALO will be available from May 14 priced at approximately EUR99.99.
