Motorola Endeavor HX1 Bluetooth headset
Motorola is one cellphone manufacturer that we would hate to see bite the dust considering how they have changed the industry landscape over the years, and the way their iconic RAZR handset (which ultimately proved to turn the company into a victim of its own success as it failed to release new models that could surpass the initial success of the RAZR) made cellphones as a sexy must-have business communications tool. Well, nice to know that they’re still hanging in there despite being rather lacklustre in terms of handset releases compared to other players in the market, but their latest device, the Motorola Endeavor HX1 Bluetooth headset won’t do much in helping turn the company’s fortunes around it seems. Read on after the jump to find out why.
Firstly, the Endeavor HX1 Bluetooth headset, while is a pretty decent looking model, will not be able to evoke your emotions in a positive manner compared to the first time you laid your eyes on the RAZR. Granted, a Bluetooth headset and a cellphone are worlds apart in terms of functionality, but surely there must be an idea somewhere which has yet to be tapped which will get folks excited about purchasing this hands-free cellphone accessory? The Endeavor HX1 will be the first headset from the company that brings together Motorola’s CrystalTalk noise cancellation technology with a stealth mode, enabling you to hear and be heard regardless of how noisy your surroundings are (OK so there are limits, including using this at the starting grid of an F1 race where 20-odd cars or so start revving their monstrous engines).
The use of true bone conduction technology is not new as Aliph has been doing it for years, but it is nice to see Motorola take some steps to keep up with the times. This technology will help relay only your voice while knocking out the most extreme noise and wind for a revolutionary premium headset experience. The stealth mode can be activated at the touch of a button to trigger bone conduction technology, where an ear sensor will help seal off outside noise instead of using an exposed exterior microphone. Each word you speak will see the sensor tap your vocal vibrations, converting them to speech seamlessly so that the listener hears nothing but your voice. Expect to pick up the Motorola Endeavor HX1 later this July for a yet unannounced price.
