Motorola Endeavor HX1 Bone Conducting Bluetooth Headset review


The Bluetooth headset market has split in recent years, with the budget end of the market being served by low-cost, simple devices for $50 or under, and the high-end packing complex noise-reduction and DSP for $100 upward. Into that fray steps...

Many thanks to everyone for helping me test out the Motorola Endeavor Bluetooth headset!

Motorola Endeavor HX1


Though the Aliph Jawbone is so named for the voice activity sensor that touches the side of the face, it is not actually a bone-conduction headset. The sensor on the Jawbone is just there to detect your voice and help separate it from the surrounding...

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...

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

Though the call quality isn't perfect, the combination of bone conduction, CrystalTalk, and other features make the Motorola Endeavor HX1 a fantastic headset.

Motorola Endeavor HX1


In a series of tests, voice quality was generally very good, with plenty of gain in the earpiece and a smooth tone. Parties on the other end could tell I was on a headset, though no one had trouble understanding me. Voice mail tests confirmed that the...

Very good audio quality. Excellent noise canceling. Stellar battery life. Easy-to-understand control scheme

Voice quality is ever-so-slightly behind the top of the class. Stealth mode degrades sound quality to other callers

Motorola aims for the top of the headset class with the Endeavor HX1, a quality unit with a unique take on noise cancellation technology.

Review: Motorola Endeavor HX1 Bluetooth headset


Let's talk Bluetooth headsets for a second, shall we? They're not exactly everybody's favorite thing to use, but they're a must-have in the car if you want to stay safe and legal. After the break, we...

but you're getting a lot of noise-cancellation bang for your buck.

Motorola Endeavor HX1: A Different Kind of Headset (Part 1)


When you spend $130 on a headset, expectations are going to be high. But given the reviews I've read about the effectiveness of the technology in this headset, I'd say I'm going to be even more skeptical than normal. First off, a few things to note....

Read Motorola Endeavor HX1 Bluetooth Headset


For a long time now, Aliph's Jawbone has been the front runner in background noise cancellation. Many have tried to beat the Jawbone only to fall short. Today we will be looking at Motorola's newest headset, the Endeavor HX1, which takes a unique...

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

Noise cancellation abilities affected by positioning in ear

At first I must admit I was a little skeptical on how well Motorola’s use of bone conduction technology would work. I knew bone conduction worked but I did not know how well they would work in a Bluetooth headset were high sound quality was also...

Motorola makes a valiant effort with another of its high-end Bluetooth headsets, the Motorola Endeavor HX1.

Consumer review by:

best one yet


I am very active, and have had a horrible, I repeat, HORRIBLE time finding a headset that stays put. I've been through every Jawbone, and one BlueAnt. The Plantronics Pro was great, but didn't go well with sunglasses and riding helmets. I don't want a...

Good for the very active user, good sound quality, all callers said the sound on their end was great

wish it had some of the options that BlueAnt has with called id and answer, ignore. And, well, don't send it through the washer and dryer

Consumer review by:

Good solid Bluetooth headset


Overall this is a great headset and I'm very happy with it. The sound quality is great, battery life is good, and most importantly the main functions such as volume +/-, power, answer & hang-up have their own dedicated, easily accessible, button. As...

Big buttons compared to other headsets, very easy to use

Might not fit certain users with narrow or shallow ear canal

Consumer review by:

Busted in two weeks


Overall for me this headet was a waste of 40 bucks. While it worked for it's two week period it was great... but it was only two weeks and now it is useless as its intended use. Very dissappointed. Not sure if it is from where I bought it or if I was...

Like everyone else who gave this headset a thumbs up it does what is says it does and does it very well. Was really getting into the device and was a bit skeptical when I first got it ( bluetooth#9) but it worked great. Until it broke. See cons

The head set hook arm broke off after the second day of use and after two weeks it stop working totally. All you can do with it is use it as a speaker. Also the ear bud thrusts deep into ear canal

Product Specifications

Motorola Endeavor HX1 is the first headset to combine Motorola's CrystalTalk noise cancellation technology with a stealth mode so you can hear and be heard in the fiercest environments. When the stealth mode is activated, true bone conduction technology relays only your voice while knocking out the most extreme noise and wind for a revolutionary premium headset experience. This experience makes Motorola Endeavor the only Bluetooth headset to use true bone conduction technology, all without compromising comfort.
