The location is bad.
The old model is much better.
I bought 3 Bluetooth Motorola, 2 old model and 1 new model.
I will not recommend this new model.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
I've tried and given up on several Bluetooth earpieces over the years, more than a dozen. The Motorola Elite Flip headset is now not only my favorite, but the best one I've ever owned.
Things I like best:
* Easy to use
* Long talk time
* Noise canceling is amazing
* It's very small. Fits in a shirt pocket
The headset excels at ease of use, comfort, mute functionality and volume control, battery life, and roaming distance from the phone. It also provides one button access to phone features such as voice dialing. Battery life is remarkable and also provides a nice display on the iPhone screen graphically telling you using a bar how much battery is available. Another nice touch is that everytime you turn the headset on by flipping the boom open, a voice comes over the speaker telling you have at least X number of hours of talk-time remaining. I found this quite helpful and reassuring for my commute to/from work and usage through the day for some conference calls depending on my mobility in the office.
Muting work well due to a dedicated mute button and is instantaneous. I like that feature since it's very helpful for conference calls while in the car and lets you either mute out quickly after speaking or come back off mute very quickly if you're needed to speak. This beats fumbling with your phone by a long shot.
My complaints center around the button on the headset, noise reduction, and call quality. I'll talk about the button first since that is universal no matter the mobile phone platform. The headset is quite attractive and has a small form factor - especially when the boom is closed. It fits easily in a pocket and feels sturdy enough to not receive damage from keeping it in your pocket all day (I'm a guy). However, the back of the headset where the button is at is curved. I found this a bit challenging each time I accessed it since my finger would tend to slide off the button or it would just make it difficult to press. I think if the headset were flat on the back this wouldn't be an issue but it was for me. You can press this button to accept a phone call or hang up and also speak to pick up or hang up a call.
The noise reduction and call quality were lacking for me and are two of the priority features I was looking for in use with my commute to/from work for headsets at this price point. Road noise came through more than was expected given the product description and people I called said a I sounded a bit far away. I'm now aware the MotoSpeak application on Android lets you adjust the background cancellation based on a number of scenarios but I was not able to achieve this with the iPhone.
I thought I would hang on to this headset because there were many things I liked about it but the continued feedback from folks on the other end of the phone finally prompted me to return it. If the headset were at the $50 mark, it wouldn't be an issue. I also researched to see if the MotoSpeak app would be ported to iPhone but could find no mention of it. So, with the noise cancellation and call quality not being up to par, I returned it. Android users may have a different experience. It's a good headset with a lot of promise though.
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?
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. But nothing beats the Motorola flip boom mikes for ease/battery savings.
1. Elite Silver: Is lightweight, fit comfortably on ear. Once you figure it out, goes on quick and secure.
2. Bose: Has unique inside earpiece that seems like it won't work, but does.
3. Plantronics: I like the heaviness of this item and love the boom mike (surprisingly, the boom mike didn't help sound quality).
4. Elite Flip: I'm not a big fan of the small string earpieces. It felt lightweight and fragile and non-secure.
Conclusion: I like the secure feel of the Plantronics. It's heavy, locks in on the ear, quick to put on and off, but the boom mike adds little to the sound quality.
Sound Quality: This is a tough category as always. I use mine in the car (road noise) and have a larger head (harder for mike to pick up sounds around my cheeks). Your experience may differ depending on your signal, location, face shape, and usage.
1. Bose: By far the most clear. Loud volume. People could hear me. I could hear them.
2. Plantronics: People could make out my voice (when driving) if I spoke very slowly and carefully. Boom mike did not seem to help.
3. ELITE Silver: I loved the sound of this, but people could not hear me when I spoke. My cheeks too big? The mike too far from my mouth?
4. Elite Flip: Didn't test this one as much, but people struggled to hear me.
Conclusion (ALL). I wish the Elite Silver had better sound quality when driving, because I liked most of the features. If I could design a perfect headset, it would have the flip boom mike of the FLIP. Have the comfort and charging features of the ELITE SLIVER. Have the sound quality of the BOSE. And the easy/on and off of the Plantronics.
Bose: Best sound quality. Great fit. Expensive.
Plantronics: Rugged design, nice boom mike. Not good enough vocal quality. Annoying on/off.
Motorola Elite Silver: Great innovations, great comfort. Need to work on their sound quality.
Motorola Flip: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the flip mike. Very lightweight (pro or con?), unsecure, not good enough sound quality.
+ Extremely light weight - as light as an earring
+ Great sound quality
+ 6 hours of battery life
+ Re-charges with a standard micro-USB
Could be better:
- The Ear hook seems a little flimsy.
- Device would not pair with my phone
Mostly this is an awesome device. However, I have an old-style T-Mobile Samsumg phone. It has bluetooth but could not see this device. Unsure why. My son's Exhibit (smart phone) paired with it immediately, so I used his phone to evalute the device.
The sound was very clear, and is always clear if the device is within a few feet of the phone. When you pair the device with the phone, the device tells you how much battery life is left. We found it to be fairly accurate. The voice management can be turned off if you don't like it.
It's very easy to use, just unfold it to turn on and fold off. The ear hook will swivel to fit the left or right ear. It's very small and attractive and I can hide it under my hair.
When my son is outside and calls me using this device, I have a hard time hearing him if the wind is blowing. Otherwise, I can't tell if he's using it or not when he calls.
This is a great device, very lightweight, attractive and easy to use.
