The Good The Motorola H680 is small, lightweight, and has a stylish design. It comes with a portable carrying case for more battery life.

The Bad The Motorola H680's sound quality is a little patchy at times, and we wished the fit were a bit more secure.

The Bottom Line Despite a few quibbles in performance, the Motorola H680 is an affordable yet stylish Bluetooth headset with a long battery life.

Motorola has usually had a healthy cell phone accessory lineup to complement its cell phones, especially with Bluetooth headsets like the Motorola H9 Miniblue and the Motorola H700. Recently, Motorola has released yet another tiny Bluetooth headset, dubbed the Motorola H680. Though not quite as small as the Miniblue, it's still a very petite headset, and it boasts style and elegance, complete with a plastic-covered charging cradle that doubles as a case. The Motorola H680 is available for $89.99.

The Motorola H680 is definitely among one of the more stylish Bluetooth headsets we've seen. Clad in vacuum metal and a black-gloss finish, the H680 only weighs 0.42 ounce, and measures 1.61 inches by 0.7 inch by 0.47 inch in a slightly narrow rectangular design. On the front is a large multifunction button that stands out from the surface of the headset, making it easy to press by feel. On the right spine are the nice-and-big volume controls, while a power switch is on top of the headset. We like the dedicated power switch a lot, as it is much easier to turn on and off the device.

On the back of the headset are a simple in-ear rubber earpiece and a plastic flexible ear hook. The earpiece is slightly tapered to fit more securely in the ear, and the ear hook can be adjusted to fit either ear. We thought the tapered rubber earpiece felt a little awkward to place in the ear, but it was overall a decent fit. That said, we would've liked it to feel a bit more secure, perhaps with a smaller-size earpiece.
