Today Meizu introduced its new smartphone called Meizu 15. Also the Chinese company released a very interesting accessory for fans of listening to music outside the home walls – Meizu HALO headphones.
Meizu HALO: Design
You can notice the headphones from a distance, because they have a glowing wire. The backlight works in different modes. It can change the color (to music or manually). There are three colors available: red, blue and green. Each color corresponds to its type of music, but also it can be customized individually using a special Halo App. There you can fine tune and other features of this model.
Meizu is especially proud of the spread of light. It flies in all directions – 360 degrees. There is no glowing strip on the back or outside. And it looks really cool!
In addition, Meizu HALO headphones are designed for sports. That’s why the design has behind-the-ear arches. In my opinionm it is far from the most convenient shape, but from the point of reliability it is the best solution for today.
Meizu HALO: Sound
As for the sound, you should not worry. The support for Qualcomm aptX codec says about high-quality. However, You should not that the smartphone have to support this codec. Not all devices, especially on processors not from Qualcomm (Snapdragon), can boast of this feature.
Also there is a special application Halo App for fine tuning of headphones.
