Size: Only Bluetooth 2.0Package Type: Standard PackagingColor: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
**Update 11/16/2011**

I didn't put this in my first review because I thought it was my phone and not the headset... but sometimes when I play music the sound cuts in and out. Almost like a very hard static. With my iPhone 3Gs I thought it was because my phone was old and I had dropped it a few times. But when I paired this headset with my iPhone 4s I (at times) heard the same thing. The good thing is that it doesn't completely shut the app like it did with the 3Gs. It's just a few seconds of hard static and then it goes back to the music. It HAS NOT done this with phone calls. I don't know if this is an iPhone pairing thing or what but I find it hard to believe that two phone could be experiencing the exact same problem

************************

Ahhhhh... the wonder of technology. When I first opened the package I was thinking, "how in the world can this device pick up my freaking voice"? One part goes in my ear and the other part wraps BEHIND my ear. How in the... ? Well, once I got over trying to figure it out and started using it I was very, very, very happy. Just for reference I use an iPhone 3Gs and an iPad 2. I think I read somewhere this is best used for Android phones. I only found one instance where having an Android phone with this device is "better", but I'll get to that in a minute:

Charging: charging items are usually a boring and little thought of aspect to electronic devices. Not so with this one (at least with me). Not only does this wireless headset hold a good charge, but even if you were to run it down all you would have to do is put it in its case. The CASE is the charger! How cool is that? The case itself is very small and can easily fit in a purse or even your front pocket.

Size: Only Bluetooth 2.0Package Type: Standard PackagingColor: Black
Bose Bluetooth Series 2 vs. Plantronics Voyager PRO HD vs. Motorola ELITE Silver vs. Motorola FLIP

Cost:
1. FLIP: $60-$75
2. Elite Silver: $80-$100
3. Plantronics HD: $75-$100
4. Bose: Hard to find for less than $130-$150 (check fleabay or your cell provider)
Conclusion: Elite Silver has been dropping in price rapidly. Bose is hard to find discounted.

Ease of use:
1. FLIP: Open it up, it's on, close the flap, it's off. Great for saving battery power.
2. Elite Silver: Turn the ear piece, it's on, turn back, it's off. A little tricky, as sometimes not sure which direction to turn it.
3. Bose: Switch to turn on and off. Answers quickly. Hard to put it on ear quickly. Buttons a little non-intuitive.
4. Plantronics: Hold button down to turn on and off. Has 4 seconds ever felt so long?
Conclusion: Why o why don't more companies adopt the Motorola flip design. I love having a headset that I can sit down next to me, and then when someone calls, pick it up, put it on easily. AND save battery power. Who wants to charge a headset every day?

Features:
1. Flip: Super easy to turn on and off. Best design ever.
2. Elite Silver comes with cool storage case that doubles as a recharger for up to 3 charges. Tells you battery life left over when you put on.
3. Bose: Easy on and off switch (why don't more companies go back to switches)?
4. Plantronics automatically answers the phone when you put it on your ear. However, it doesn't turn it on and off when you do this, so no battery savings. Also tells you how much battery left when you put on.
Conclusion: Love the storage case on the Elite Silver that doubles as a charging station. Love the switch on the BOSE for on/off.

Size: Only Bluetooth 2.0Package Type: Standard PackagingColor: Black Verified Purchase
I very rarely (READ: maybe three times in my lifetime) write a product review. However, I took a chance and ordered from a fulfilled-by-Amazon retailer (generally only purchase from Amazon) because of price savings. I've had other bluetooth devices in the past (several Jawbone series as well as Blackberry/Plantronics) and all seemed to hurt my ear after a few minutes of wearing. I have a small ear and I just can't seem to keep the earpiece in comfortably. Initially, I was very hesitant because of the mixed reviews and this "bulk packaging." But I have to say, I researched this item via online forums, reviews, and motorola.com and became aware of issues (and how to solve them) before I received the item so that I wouldn't immediately throw the item back in the box and return as "junk". (Eg., I was surprised by a reviewer who said s/he couldn't use because they wear glasses. This is pretty obvious by the design of the headset. The reviewer shouldn't have purchased as this was an obvious conflict and does not have any bearing on the performance of the headset.)

What follows is a 1st day, first impression of this device:

- Yes, the packaging is generic (plastic baggies for all components) but the items seem to be new OEM. The headset was uncharged. The headset can be charged by electrical outlet or via USB connection, both while in the plastic carrying case.
- Charging was quick. In about 20 minutes, the bluetooth acquired 3+ hours of talk time (when you turn on the headset, it automatically tells you how much talk time you have). Bonus: the iPhone will tell you with an icon approximately how much battery the headset has. This feature didn't work with my last Plantronics device, so I was pleased.
- The headset turns on when you adjust the ear piece outwards.
