GN Netcom has announced the retail launch of the Jabra HALO, a Bluetooth stereo headset compatible with Blackberry Smartphones and Apple's iPhone and iPod touch. Featuring Multiuse capabilities, the Jabra HALO gives users the ability to seamlessly connect to two Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones, smartphones, MP3 player, television, video game console, or laptop, and enjoy wireless audio content and answer phone calls in crystal clear stereo sound. Best Buy North America retail stores will be first to market the Jabra HALO beginning today.

Weighing only 3 ounces, the Jabra HALO features an over-the-head, foldable design that fits neatly into a compact carrying case, making the headset ideal for travel and small enough to take it wherever you go. Whether you're rocking out to tunes on a crowded subway, kicking back late at night with video games, or passing the time watching Hulu or YouTube, the HALO offers wireless connectivity in-style - and with a 30 foot operating range. The Jabra HALO is compatible with Blackberry devices and both Apple's iPhone and iPod touch (2nd generation). Ideal for use on airplanes, the Jabra HALO also connects to all 3.5 mm multimedia playing devices including cell phones and laptops.

"As a Best Buy partner, we are committed to delivering wireless Bluetooth solutions that compliment their wide selection of mobile and entertainment products," said Jonas Forsberg, General Manager North America, Mobile Division, GN Netcom. "The Jabra HALO provides the ultimate audio experience, while maximizing portability and versatility."

The Jabra HALO includes an intuitive on/off functionality, a discreet display to reveal battery and connectivity status, and a touch volume control, allowing you to leave your phone in a pocket or bag and control your music directly from the headset. In addition, ensuring that users won't miss phone calls while listening to music, the HALO fades out music to allow for incoming calls. The headset also has the versatility to switch between wireless and wired connectivity if a device doesn't support Bluetooth stereo (A2DP) technology.
