Have used lower end Plantronics and the original Jawbone and Jawbone 2 and smaller nokia bluetooths and the stereo Motorola SD's. This is the single best bluetooth handset I've used. The fit is secure with OR WITHOUT the earloop! I've NEVER had that happen before, and it's because of the part that extends into the ear canal to press against the temporal bone. The sound, the clarity AND the easy pairing and vocal commands in conjunction with my Samsung Gleam phone . . . unbelievable. ALSO, with this earpiece I can listen to music/audiobooks from my cellphone, something I've yet to see in any other earpiece. Now the bad news: The place I got 'bulk packaging' from included one ear hook and one earloop. Original packaging has 2 earhooks, 3 different size earloops AND two of what they call earhooks for another fitting option. I don't know what this Amazon seller does, but the other seller of bulk packaged HZ800's online does not mention this. Caveat emptor.

I have purchased several different bluetooths in the past 6 weeks or so. Plantronics m50, plantronics marque, blueant rugged t1, motorola hx550, jabra extreme 2. This one is the best as far as noise cancellation by far. The m50 and the finiti are by far the most comfortable and easy to wear for long periods of time. The jabra extreme 2 just seemed poorly built and the on/off button broke within a day of owning it. The hx550 motorola had outstanding sound but was not comfortable or secure on my ear at all. After demoing them all i chose the finiti but it was also $75 bucks. If you want a great unit but dont need extreme noise cancellation i would go with the Plantronics M50 for $30. It is a great unit and super comfy with excellent sound... I drive truck so i need something that can kill the engine noise of a freightliner. Finiti is it

I never write reviews, but I've never had such a negative reaction to a product on Amazon. Note that I have primarily used blueAnt and Jawbone devices in the past. This is my first foray into Motorola. I also want to address some of the iPhone connectivity problems noted in other reviews:

Pros:
* Fit is excellent - the takes a little getting used to the thing being jammed in your ear and the sensing mechanism up against your inner ear bone (?) but if you can get by that, it's quite an excellent fit
* Size, weight, and look are also quite nice
* Retail packaging - got the full retail packaging, with all loops, buds, etc.

Cons:
* Super static-y
* Don't get this if you have an iPhone

Addressing the iPhone connectivity issue specifically, which seems to be covered quite a bit in the other reviews. I've done some research and used the device, and here's what I've found:
> If you power down the device with the iPhone in PHONE mode (i.e., as long as the phone 'app' is up on your screen), you will hear a descending tone, and everything will be fine for next time.
> If you power down the device WITHOUT the iPhone in phone mode, it 'dies' - you can't get it to turn on again, you can't pair it, you can't do anything.
> If the device 'dies', all you have to do is (with the device off)plug it into your charger for 2 seconds - just enough for the charging light to come on, then unplug it, and turn it on, and it will automatically pair and you're good to go.

That's it.

Is that incredibly annoying and a reason not to buy the device? Absolutely. I'm incredibly anal about my devices, and I still have run into issues with this on/off thing - you just don't think about it. You park your car, you get out, you just turn your device off and put it in your pocket... you don't think to go to the phone, click to the phone function and THEN turn the device off.

Note - I think all of the issues with battery life indicators, bluetooth indicators, caller ID, etc., are all linked to this quirk between this device and the iPhone...and candidly, why it's now selling for $40 instead of its list price of 3X that amount.

While in use, this bluetooth headset worked very well. Callers who had complained to me about background interference in the past with other headsets said the call quality on their end was crystal clear. Volume and clarity on my end was also very good.

I did, however, have to send it back (waiting on a refund and will purchase another). The one I received would only turn on once per charge cycle. So basically, if you turned the headset off for any reason, it would not turn back on until you charged it again. So, I'm pretty sure it was a lemon. We'll see, I'll update when I get the new one. (gave it 2 stars based the malfunctioning)

-----------

Update (3/13/12):

Got a refund on the first one, second one did not have the same issue. Looks like it was just a lemon. New one works perfectly, call quality is excellent on both ends. Can't go above 4 stars though as QC at Motorola should have caught the defective unit.

SO FAR SO GOOD. I haven't had many calls or been outside to test the stealth mode however the calls I have gotten haven't had any problem understanding or hearing me clearly. As for volume I actually had to turn mine DOWN!!! As it was too loud this is a plus! Another winner for me is the fact I can pair with 2 phones and answer one while one the line on the other. I can listen to my Samsung infuse mp3 (Bluetooth has a2dp for listening to music) this alone would give 5 stars however I need more time to determine an increase in stars (I will update at a later date). Being able to listen to music through the Bluetooth is great, I workout and don't like the cords getting in the way with the earpiece that came with the my infuse. Also I can listen while out walking, shopping, or riding while my kids watch their movies and listen to their movies through the Jeep speakers (which keeps me from being able to listen to my music/radio). So in all thus far it's a great Bluetooth. Added I only paid $37 for it and regular price on many other sites were $80-$130. By the way I didn't shop Amazon for it but felt the need to leave a GREAT review for those who may want to shop Amazon for this Bluetooth.

I have tried several different bluetooth devices over the years and overall I have never been more happy than I am with the Motorola Finiti. (I've had the Finity for 3 weeks)

FIT:
The Finiti is small and stylish AND it fits nicely in your ear. I cant wear BT headsets that just lay on top of your ear. Most of the ones with over the ear hooks just dangle like earrings (Jawbone Icon). The headsets that do go over the ear nicely are just a little too big for me (Plantronics Voyager Pro Plus). The fact that the Finiti actually goes in your ear and hooks around will fit most anyone's ear even weird shaped ones...like mine.

SOUND:
The finiti is plenty lound enough. I can hear everyone perfectly. This is common on all BT headsets. The real test is can others hear you. I've tried several different tests (e.g. leaving voicemails for myself and asked people if they can hear me and the answer is always yes. I will say that the Voyager Pro Plus has the best sound of any BT headset (I've tried them all), but from a look perspective, this is the best sounding device...yes even better than the Jawbone Icon.

LOOK:
The Finiti is a stylish device and does not look like a fast food drive through headset (Voyager Pro Plus). The shiny finish and streamlined design make you feel great wearing it.

FEATURES:
The Finiti is fully loaded with all the latest features. Reads battery level to you, A2DP for all PDA audio, mp3, Pandora, etc. It syncs with your contact list and reads out who's calling you and asks if you want to answer it or ignore, it reaads texts messages to you and if you have the right device (Andriod...sorry BB users (like me)), MotoSpeak software will enable you to write text messages via voice! People claim the buttons are small. They are not too small. There a multifuncion button and volume rocker as well as a stealth mode button (which I havent played with now).

Also, like other BT devices, you can sync multiple phones and your computer as well. I have voice over IP on my PC and can use it to take call.

PRICE:
The Finiti is on the higher end of the spectrum, but will worth is. You can get it on Amazon for ~$79. It retails at the AT&T store for $129.

Go for it.

The sound was great for me, however, I experienced two major problems. First, the little stealth bump killed my ear, after just a couple minutes of wearing it, each time. And second, I also had the powering-on issue. I had to plug it in and unplug it every day just to get it to work, which was extremely annoying. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this headset and I sent it back.

I've gone through at least a half-dozen bluetooth headsets including the highly rated Jawbone and junked them all after a few weeks. This unit is perfect in every way. A nice assuring female voice tells you the headset is connected and then reads its battery level. And, my iPhone displays battery level. You voice command to answer the phone, no fuss or muss! At last people tell me they can hear me clearly. I've never had a dropped signal. Great headset, kudos to Motorola!

I have had this bluetooth headset for about 1 month. OEM Shop claims that this is a retail package but somehow I doubt that. The manual was a bad photocopy. On the plus side this is one of the best fitting headsets I have ever had. On the negative side I have been unable to turn it off using the on/off switch. Only way to turn it off has been to charge the battery.
I guess my biggest complaint is about the vendor OEM Shop. They quickly issued a RMA but they insist that I must include the packing slip which I no longer have after 1 month. Ultimately I believe they are misrepresenting this product as new when it is not. It is most definitely not an original retail package.
