Motorola H17txt

 

Unfortunately, I found the app to be too buggy. Acronym translation, one of the headset's star features, was hit-or-miss in testing. Sometimes it read "laugh out loud" for LOL, but it missed others, even though it comes with a list of 150 supported...

Reads caller ID and full text messages out loud, and even translates acronyms. Supports A2DP streaming over mono. Comfortable fit

Texting features only work with Android smartphones. App may have to be updated for your specific smartphone

The Motorola H17txt reads your text messages to you, but only if you have an Android phone or newer BlackBerry. While this is still a good headset, other headsets are better buys overall.

For the most part, Bluetooth headsets all seem to offer a similar set of features.  However, Motorola's newest headset, the H17txt brings something new to the table; the ability to read text messages to the user as soon as they are received.  With more...

The Motorola H17txt by itself is a pretty impressive headset.  While it really doesn't boast any specific noise cancellation features like the Jawbone or Motorola HX1, it did a respectable job when it came to background noise cancellation.  It was also...

Review: Motorola H17 Flip Bluetooth Headset

 

As announced earlier, the new Motorola H17 Flip Bluetooth Headset arrived here at JAMM, and I have had the opportunity to test it out for the last two weeks.

However, this one made me reconsider that choice.  Today, after I returned the unit Motorola loaned me, I found I was missed using it. I am seriuosly thinking I may give Motorola my $79.99 to keep the H17 with me at all times.

Laundry proof

 

This headset went through the washing machine and dryer cycle, yet continued to work flawlessly - can't really fault a product for that. Wouldn't recommend doing this on a daily basis

So small you can easily forget you left it in your shirt pocket

Nice headset, with caveat

 

I agree with a previous reviewer who said the small size is great for storage but makes them easy to lose. I've lost a few because I HAVE to take them off even when I don't want to, otherwise they'll fall off.

The folding boom mic is the best feature of that Motorola has on some of its bluetooth headsets. I've owned 4 different Motorola models with this feature. It saves my battery and keeps me from having to wear it on my ear all the time. The multipoint...

The over-the-ear piece is VERY uncomfortable. They are made of a hard plastic that does not fit neatly over my ear. I found the earpieces on the Motorola H700 series (H700, H710, H715/721, and H720) much more comfortable and secure. The H17 & H15...

Fragile

 

Great sound clarity for both user and recipient

Fragile, earpiece loop broke off after about 6 months of use. It would seem that Motorola engineers are not designing for durability...second Moto device that has prematurely broken down on me
