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
50 going on 40
Turned 50 last November, since I got the Halo Sport 2, I feel like I’m getting younger. I’m able to push the pace more and more, have lost body fat in the lower back that I thought would never go away at 50 years old. Just keep getting after it and feeling better than a 40 year old.
Great when they work
I LOVE them....when they work. Constantly pausing during the priming session. I even tried wetting my head before soaking the prongs and putting them in my head. Still lose contact. And it can easily take up to 5 minutes to get good contact again. I have yet to have a solid 20-minute priming session without it “pausing” at some point. And it doesn’t happen in the beginning of the session, usually around minute 9 or 13. Irritating! And for goodness sakes, invest some money into that app. Simplicity is nice, but really!?!?
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!
