The Good The Motorola CommandOne has multipoint, A2DP streaming, and voice prompts. It's compatible with an Android app that will read out incoming text messages, which you can reply to via voice. It has a headset battery meter on the iPhone. Call quality is quite good.

The Bad The Motorola CommandOne's multipurpose call button is tiny. The MotoSpeak app is currently available only for Android, and it doesn't always work depending on your phone or the length of the message.

The Bottom Line The Motorola CommandOne is overall a great Bluetooth headset with plenty of features, but the MotoSpeak app could be improved.

Motorola may be better known for its Android smartphones these days, but the company also makes accessories like Bluetooth headsets. One of its most recent headsets is the Motorola CommandOne, which features Motorola's own CrystalTalk noise cancellation technology along with A2DP streaming, multipoint, and voice prompts. It's also compatible with a mobile app that will let you send and receive text messages without ever touching the phone. The Motorola CommandOne is available for $99.99 retail.

There's not much to say about the CommandOne's design; it looks like a standard Bluetooth headset at 2.13 inches long by 0.73 inch wide by 0.43 inch thick. The rectangular headset is clad in a shiny gray plastic on the front, and the sides are covered in a soft rubber material. The headset is also curved slightly outward so that it better suits the curvature of the face.

On the front of the CommandOne is a slim diamond grid opening that houses one of the headset's microphones. A little farther down on the front is a tiny status light that lights up when the headset is charging. On the top of the headset are the Micro-USB charging port and a very small multipurpose call button. It is a tiny little raised rubber point, so small that we completely missed it at first glance and had to refer to the manual to figure out its location. It's not difficult to press, but we wish it was a bit more prominent.

On the left side of the headset is the power slider, which we can use to easily turn the headset on and off. On the right are the volume rocker, mute button, and another status LED light that flashes when the headset is in use.

On the back of the headset is the earpiece clad in Motorola's TrueComfort ear gel cover. The headset comes with covers of different sizes if you want more options. It also comes with a flexible ear hook that can be rotated to fit either ear. The ear hook is not really optional, as you do need it to keep the headset from falling off. We found the overall fit to be quite comfortable--the earpiece sits gently inside the ear without going in too deeply.
