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

At just 3.2 ounces, the Motorola Elite Sliver is so light you barely know it's there. Its wraparound-the-ear design can be tricky to strap on, though, especially for wearers of eyeglasses.

One of the best features of the Elite Sliver is its compact carrying case. Not only does it double as an extra battery pack, the case also has an NFC chip at its base designed to make Bluetooth pairing faster.

The Elite Sliver drops snugly into its bundled case for charging on the go. A battery in the case also holds enough juice for three full headset power-ups away from AC outlets.

One downside to the Elite Sliver is that it lacks a standard port for charging. Instead it has proprietary power pickups to match its case.

To switch the Elite Sliver on, just swing its earpiece to the open position. Closing the earpiece automatically shuts it off and enables a smaller footprint for case storage. Motorola also provides a selection of removable ear gels, which sadly don't get small enough to form a tight audio seal.
