The Halo Sport app controls the Halo Sport headset, which is a wearable neurostimulator that accelerates improvements in skill, power, and endurance when paired with training. Halo Sport works by stimulating the motor cortex of the brain during training, resulting in stronger, more optimized signaling between the brain and muscles. Every day, thousands of athletes, musicians, gamers, military professionals, and others train with Halo Sport to more rapidly develop muscle memory.

WHAT IS NEUROPRIMING
With the Halo Sport app, users can choose from three different Neuropriming sessions: (1) Legs, Core, & Arms, (2) Hand & Fingers - Right Emphasis, and (3) Hand & Fingers - Left Emphasis. According to the selected session, Halo Sport’s foam Primers electrically stimulate specific areas of the motor cortex to induce a temporary state of hyperplasticity. Pairing the resulting hyperplastic brain state with training reps leads to more more precise, coordinated, and explosive movement — whichever is the focus of the user’s training.

WHO IS USING HALO SPORT
In professional sports, teams and athletes from the NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB and Olympics are all using Halo Sport to improve athleticism. For example, a double-blind, placebo-controlled study with the U.S. Olympic Ski Team found that ski jumpers who trained with Halo Sport increased propulsive force by an additional 13% and jump smoothness by an additional 11% over the control group after ten consecutive training days.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND HALO SPORT
The underlying science behind Halo Sport is called transcranial direct current stimulation (“tDCS”). tDCS is backed by more than a decade of neuroscience research—3,000 peer-reviewed articles covering over 105,000 sessions speak to the technology’s safety and efficacy. In addition, Halo Neuroscience’s team of doctors, scientists, and engineers built Halo Sport according to medical-grade specifications, and successfully tested the device on more than 1,400 volunteers.

HOW TO USE HALO SPORT
For best results, use Halo Sport during a 20-minute warm-up prior to focused, movement-based training. Simply saturate the Primers with water, put on Halo Sport like any other pair of headphones, and use the Halo Sport app to initiate a 20-minute Neuropriming session. After the 20-minute session ends, take off the headset (or leave it on to listen to music) and continue training. Your brain remains in a hyperplastic state for 60 minutes—use this time to perform high-quality, high-intensity reps.

Ratings and Reviews
Great, when it works
Very difficult to maintain contact through a complete session. Needs improvement.
(Response to developers comment follows)
When you contact support you get the same set of instructions, over and over. ( as repeated here) Do you think I’m a moron? I preordered this product and have had it since first wave of shipments.
I’ve read the instructions and followed them carefully, still cuts out 3-7 times per neuropriming session. Your product is awesome. However, it is flawed, now the nibs are breaking up. Fix it
Developer Response ,
Hi Fogbert, Thanks for the update and we apologize for the inconvenience. We're so sorry to hear that some of your Primer band's nibs are damaged - that's not good! This kind of damage is covered under our product warranty, so we will be happy to replace your Primer band for you. Please dispose of (and do not use) your damaged Primer band. To get you back up and running with your headset as quickly as possible, we will go ahead and send out a new Primer band for you within one week. First, can you please provide us with your order number and the full name on your order? Thank you. Apologies again for the trouble here. We're looking forward to getting you back up and running with Halo Sport 2! As soon as your replacement Primer band is shipped, you will receive an email with tracking information. We look forward to your reply. Kind regards, Jason
This is a terribly inconsistent device. It’ll have a hard time getting good contact for no reason. I can literally have water running down my face it’s so soaking and have both hands pressing the band to my skull and it’ll have moments of ‘having a hard time getting a good connection’ get stuck at 99% and then finally restart - all while I have not moved or changed anything at all whatsoever. I literally am as physically still as I could ever be as a living breathing being.
I would never recommend this device to anyone nor would I ever risk moving let alone working out while using it. However, assuming the claims of hyper plasticity are true it’s still worth me suffering through it even if it’s rather terrible in every other aspect.
Also, the sound quality is not good on the headphones.
Not really impressed.
I’ve had the Halo2 for about a year. It has always been difficult to get “good contact”. And I virtually no hair to speak of top of my head. I tried for many weeks to get something out of this product and gave up. I attempted using the product again over the past two weeks. The neuroprimimg process is till as frustrating as it ever was. 4-6 attempts soaking the electrode nibs, wetting my scalp, etc... This Halo 2 starts and stops dozens of times during each neuropriming session. If I take a bandana and strap it over the headset and below my chin, I can get reasonable contact, but it becomes painful after 10-15 minutes. So far, not impressed.
