Jabra introduced two new devices today at CTIA 2009, and neither of them are traditional mono-Bluetooth headsets. They are the Jabra HALO stereo headset and the Jabra SP200 speakerphone.
The Jabra HALO stereo headset uses stereo Bluetooth or A2DP to stream music wirelessly from a stereo Bluetooth-compatible handset or MP3 player. It also has a wired option if your device only has a 3.5-mm headset jack and no Bluetooth. Like other stereo headsets, you can also use the HALO to make and receive calls; the music will fade out whenever there are incoming calls, for example. It boasts Zirene Power Bass for better audio quality and Noise Blackout for background-noise reduction. The Jabra HALO claims to be the first and only stereo headset with dual microphone noise cancellation.
As for the speakerphone, the Jabra SP200 is a simpler version of theof last year. This speakerphone is designed to be used in the car for hands-free calls. It boasts excellent audio quality, background-noise reduction, and can also be used as a standalone speakerphone in the home or office.
The Jabra HALO stereo headset will be available for $129.99 in May, while the Jabra SP200 speakerphone will be available for $59.99 in April.
