Motorola Bluetooth headset H780

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

Motorola had been the first company to compete in the intense Bluetooth headset industry. The company had a line of folding models during 2003 while there were also a few bulky predecessors before these models. However, the latest model called the H780 is designed with CrystalTalk noise cancellation technology of Motorola along with audio enhancement technology. It also features a 9mm drivers which is designed to perfectly fit above 90 percent of buyers and also includes dual mics to help in noise suppression. The Motorola H780 package also includes an AC charger adapter along with 3 different sizes cushions and a foldout instructional manual. The device measures around 1.9 x 0.7 by 0.5 inches and weights just about 0.4 ounces. It is perfectly designed to fit large handsets like the Plantronics Voyager 520 and even small models such as Samsung WEP700.

The double tone gray plastic body of the H780 is designed with a few more buttons which you might not find in a typical headset. There is a dedicated power switch son the top along with 2 other volume buttons. The unit’s front section features chrome call button with a small noise cancellation button and there is also a small visible rectangular microphone between these buttons. You will find the main light indicator and the second mic fixed on the other side. There is nothing at the unit’s back which is a hard rubber earbud.

The H780 is designed with a flexible ear hook which makes it easy to wear the small device. Motorola has also incorporated their EasyPair technology to simplify pairing the device with other mobile phones. The device also includes a multipoint mode which lets the device easily pairs with 2 mobile phones simultaneously. These two new features actually mirror what the recent competing headsets actually offer. When you first on this headset it would immediately turn into Easypair mode and the light would also stay dark blue rather than displaying the standard red and blue alternative pattern.

However, when tested with a range of voice calls the Motorola H780 proved to offer overall clear, sufficient volume and great quality. However, the user’s voice sounded a bit tiny and harsh on the other end but it was acceptably clear. The other person however did not find any problem in hearing but could surely tell a headset was used. On the positive side the Motorola H780 is clearly unaltered by any outdoor wind noise. When you enable the noise canceling circuit you can actually drive smoothly without any background noise.

The downside of the headset is its range. This means that you can just move around 5 feet away from your phone. It is a downside because there are other Bluetooth devices that let you move at least 10 feet way from the phone. You can easily check the batter status by just holding the volume buttons pressed down which will flash the red, yellow or green lights to indicate the charge level remaining. Overall, this headset makes a good and affordable choice but you can as well consider other devices.
