The Good The Motorola Razrwire Bluetooth Eyewear from Oakley feels comfortable when worn and has impressive audio quality.

The Bad The ideal Motorola Razrwire Bluetooth Eyewear setup may seem a little silly for some, and the price is hefty. Plus, only the provided sunglasses can be used with the headset.

The Bottom Line The Motorola Razrwire Bluetooth Eyewear is great for those who want a pair of high-fashion sunglasses, as well as a Bluetooth headset in a single package, but we were not impressed with the overall idea. It's also very expensive ($294.99), but that includes the glasses and the headset. The Bluetooth headset is limited to use with the included pair of sunglasses only.

Motorola RAZRWIRE BLUETOOTH EYEWEAR Bluetooth eyewear

Motorola and Oakley have partnered up to produce the Motorola Razrwire Bluetooth Eyewear, a Bluetooth headset in the style of a pair of Oakley sunglasses. Aimed at those with a desire for high style and greater mobility, it's clearly inspired by the Oakley Thump , Oakley's MP3 player sunglasses, and the sleek Motorola Razr . Unlike the Thump, however, the Razrwire Bluetooth Eyewear comes in two parts: a pair of semirimless UV-resistant Oakley sunglasses and a Bluetooth headset that clamps on the side frame. You can wear the sunglasses without the headset but not vice versa.

The Motorola Razrwire Bluetooth sunglasses come in three frame/lens-color combinations, including Platinum/Gold Iridium, Pewter/Black Iridium, and Mercury/Gray. There's also an optional lens adapter for those who need prescription lenses. The Bluetooth headset consists of a rectangular body (2 by 0.6 by 0.4 inches) and a flexible earpiece that can swivel around to fit your ear.

The style of the Motorola Razrwire Bluetooth glasses might not fit everyone's tastes, and the sight of the headset hanging off the glasses just seems silly. Regardless, the headset actually feels pretty comfortable when rested against the ear. Many people have complained about how uncomfortable it is to wear both a Bluetooth headset and glasses at the same time, and this could be a good solution for that.

On top of the Motorola Razrwire Bluetooth headset are the charger jack and the clamp. On the bottom are the multifunction button, an indicator light, and the volume buttons. The multifunction button is used to pair the device with your cell phone, as well as to answer and end calls. While the buttons are small, they are easy to locate and press. As for pairing, you need to hold the multifunction button down until the indicator light turns solid, then it's ready for pairing. Although the headset is designed to fit the right ear, it can be repositioned to fit the left ear as well.

We tested the Motorola Razrwire Bluetooth Eyewear on the Motorola Pebl U6. The headset produced impressive audio quality that was both loud and clear, and it also can be charged with the same USB charger from the newer Motorola cell phones, so if you already have one on hand, that's one less thing to carry. The Motorola Razrwire Bluetooth Eyewear has a rated talk time of 6 hours and a standby time of four days; our tests show TK days of standby time.
