Jabra have announced two new Bluetooth devices, the HALO Stereo Headset and the SP200 Speakerphone.  The former uses A2DP Bluetooth together with Zirene Power Bass for audio enhancement, and has a folding headband for portability.  Meanwhile the SP200 has a single control button, volume wheel and a dedicated on/off switch for straightforward use.

The Jabra HALO Stereo Headset supports hands-free calls as well as music, and has touch-sensors for play/pause and volume control.  Jabra have purposefully avoided using flashing lights; the Bluetooth pairing and battery indicators are on the inside of the headband.  It's also possible to plug in a standard headphone cable and use the HALO as a wired set.

As for the Jabra SP200, that has a 10hr talktime/23 day standby battery, and DSP for cutting out background noise.  There's also auto pairing, voice dialing and eco-cancellation, and the SP200 supports full duplex audio and both the headset and hands-free Bluetooth profiles.

The Jabra HALO Stereo Headset will be available in May 2009, priced at $129.99.  The Jabra SP200 Speakerphone will be available this month, April 2009, priced at $59.99.
