I bought these due to our open plan offices at work and the fact that my computer makes some noise contantly with twitter and emails etc coming in. While no one complained I felt it was best to mute the sound to the world except me! I can’t stand in ear headphones so looked for a decent set of over the ears that were a bit different. Wireless is always good for me so I happened upon the Jabra Halos. I found them much much cheaper than the £60 they want for them in the UK by importing them form the states via eBay for £19! They really are very well made and simply look stunning. Folded up they are compact and tucked nicely out of the way.
After charging them up my problems started, after a while it dawned on me that my laptop (although its a brand new near top of the line Sony) does not have an AD2P profile and so the only sound I could get thrrough them was horrible tinny hiss. I checked this by pairing them with my HTC Desire phone and they played amazingly well, the phone call quality and microphone were also excellent.
Anyway they’re going to have to go back on eBay as while they are great I dont really use my phone for a lot of music!
