CNET First Look
Motorola HX520 OasisThe Motorola Oasis is a truly comfortable headset, but it's not much better than its competitors.
-I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor, for cnet.com and this is a first look at the Motorola Oasis bluetooth headache. Overall, it's a very stylish looking headset even though it's a little bit bulky because of the battery pack on the back here. Motorola also claims it is the most comfortable headset they've ever made. On the side here is a very soft ear gel. It does fit very comfortably around the ear, but it does take a little bit of time to get it on the ear in the first place. On top of the headset here is the power switch. On the back here is the volume rocker as well as the call mute button. As you can see, the earpiece swivels to either the left or right ear. The blue mic also swivels in and out. When it swivels in, it's more of compact shape. The Motorola Oasis's features are pretty basic. You get the usual answering and rejecting calls, last number redial, call me, and so forth. You don't get A2DP streaming on here, but you do get multipoint support. It has pretty good sound quality, but it wasn't as good as others we have tried. The voice quality was a little harsher, a little over-processed for our liking. The Motorola Oasis is $79.99 cents retail. I'm Nicole Lee. This has been a first look at the Motorola Oasis.
