Jabra HALO Stereo Headset & SP200 Speakerphone

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.
