First Look: Motorola Elite Sliver bluetooth headset

1:32 /

The Motorola Elite Sliver offers plenty of advanced features for such a compact Bluetooth headset. These include noise cancelling, battery pack travel case, and even an NFC chip for fast pairing.

Hi. I'm Brian Bennett at CNET.com and today we're taking a first look at the Motorola Elite Sliver. The trends in smart phones especially Android devices is to be bigger and better than the next guide but bluetooth had (??) over an unarmed raise to squeeze as many high and features into the smallest size possible. The 12999 Elite Sliver is right in line with this practice. Well not as light as other headsets like (Plantronics?) mark, it's 0.3 outs weigh is barely noticeable. Compacted use of a wrap around the (air?) design. The call button is on the bottom of the air loop. A smart button on the front doubles as a volume control. You turned the headset on and off by swerving the earpiece. Also part of the package is a case that holds a portable battery. The headset doesn't have a standard port for charging but it's case supports on micro USB connection. Now there are things I don't like about the Motorola Elite Sliver. While Motorola provides a selection of your ear gels for the earpiece, the ear buds is too large to fit inside the ear and provide a true audio seal. The ear loop is tricky to strap on specially for people who wear eyeglasses like me. The smart button and volume button is small and hard to manipulate. I'm Brian Bennett for CNET.com and you've just taken a first look at the Motorola Elite Sliver due to headset. Be sure to check back soon for a full review.
