Summary: Though the call quality isn't perfect, the combination of bone conduction, CrystalTalk, and other features make the Motorola Endeavor HX1 a fantastic headset.
Pros: The Motorola Endeavor HX1's bone conduction completely eliminates background noise when needed, while the CrystalTalk noise-cancellation technology works well in most everyday situations. It also has voice prompts and multipoint support. We like the feel of the controls and the snug fit in the ear.
Cons: The Motorola Endeavor HX1's bone-conduction mode can result in poor voice quality, and the HX1 might fit too deep in the ear for some.
Excerpt: Motorola recently introduced the Endeavor HX1 Headset. This hands free device is bluetooth enabled, and features Motorola's CrystalTalk technology along with the new Stealth Technology. The Stealth Technology uses bone conduction (not a microphone) to relay only your voice. This eliminates any background noise, no matter how loud. Pretty remarkable technology. I put it to the test on a few outdoor adventures.
Gadling gear review - Motorola Endeavor HX1 Bluetooth headset
2 October 2009
Summary: The power button is worth some extra attention - it is a "real" power button. By this, I mean it is a sliding switch that will turn the headset on or off. No silly "hold down for 10 seconds" on the HX1. The HX1 charges using MicroUSB, the same kind of cable used on many modern mobile phones. What this means to travelers is one less charger, and no investments in dedicated charging cords.

Pros: Comfortable to wear, Fits different sized ears, Stealth mode extremely effective, Buttons not hidden under a shield, Dedicated volume buttons
