A few weeks ago, Meizu launched three new smartphones in face of the Meizu 15, 15 Plus, and 15 Lite. The Meizu 15 Plus is an awesome smartphone with outstanding features. And we have to say it embodies the company’s resurrection. But along with those smartphones, there was another piece of art. The company uncovered light-up earbuds named the Meizu HALO at 999 yuan ($157).
Summer is coming. So younger people will ‘keep dark’ daytime, and ‘break cover’ in the nights. Moreover, most of them will run or exercise when the sun goes down. For all those cases, when you want to do what you like, listen to music, and look outstanding, Meizu is offering its new earbuds. Laser Bluetooth headsets are rear nowadays. So with the Meizu HALO, you will stand out.
Meizu HALO Appearance
First of all, the Meizu HALO laser Bluetooth headset actually has two colors, red and blue. But when the light is not turned on, it will not differ from other ordinary Bluetooth headsets at all.
The most eye-catching is the round and metallic magnetic wire design. The HALO, the Bluetooth 4.1 with aptX buds feature a 1.5-meter cable (+ 0.3m headphone cord around your ears).
In the front part of the magnetic wire, we can find the Meizu logo, while the control buttons are placed on the right side of the wire. The toggle key is on the opposite side. As you guess, it’s made for turning the laser on or off.
The magnetic line control of the headset itself is also the battery part. According to the official data, when the Meizu HALO laser Bluetooth headset is in the blinking light mode it will last up to 5 hours at a 50% brightness. But when the lighting is off, it will last for 15 hours. The rechargeable battery takes about 1.5 hours to charge.
The MEIZU HALO uses a light-diffusing fiber from Corning called Fibrance got from the US and the German Osram laser light source, which differs from the more common LED lightning principles in the market. This material is thin and flexible that can bring 360 ° high-definition uniform light effect. It is made from flexible glass that can be bent and curved. However, this not the first earphones with an illuminating cable built around Fibrance. Glow has a headset like that priced at $139.
The Halo comes with a carrying case, several different sizes of earbud tips to try, and a charging cable.
At last, the Meizu HALO laser Bluetooth headset comes with three light effect modes including the music mode, constant light mode, and flashing mode. You have to use the APP to customize them.
