The Good The Motorola H720 turns on at the flip of the boom mic, and it is easy to use.

The Bad The Motorola H720 doesn't feel as secure as we would like.

The Bottom Line The Motorola H720 is an affordable Bluetooth headset with decent call quality.

Motorola must be in love with the flip boom mic because the company keeps releasing headsets with that design. The Motorola H720 is a recent example of this, and indeed, it shares the flip boom design of the H17, the H15, and its predecessor, the H710. Though the design of the H720 isn't new, that doesn't mean it's not a good headset. The H720 has decent call quality and is quite affordable at only around $45 retail.

The Motorola H720 looks very similar to the H700 and the H710. It measures 1.65 inches long by 1.06 inches wide by 0.79 inch thick, and has an oval pebble-like design that looks quite small and discreet when worn on the ear. At 0.5 ounce, the H720 won't weigh you down, either. It has a glossy black plastic body; the buttons and the boom mic are shiny silver.

On the front surface of the H720 is an inset oval above the Motorola logo that acts as the multifunction button. It's big enough to find by feel and is also easy to press. Also on this button is a tiny LED indicator. The volume controls are on either side of the headset, and the charger jack is on top. To turn the headset on and off, you can just flip the boom mic open and closed. This makes it much easier to power on/off the headset, and helps save battery as well.
