Motorola Motopure H12 Bluetooth headset review

£59 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Motorola

Our Rating: We rate this 3 out of 5

In the end, you can find a number of better, albeit less stylish, Bluetooth headsets on the market, so the Motorola Motopure H12 will suit only if you are a slave to fashion.

David Beckham is the spokesperson for Motorola's stylish Motopure H12 Bluetooth headset because, according to Motorola, he "knows a thing or two about loud crowds".

But he must not use the Motorola Motopure H12 while surrounded by hordes of LA Galaxy/Spice Girls enthusiasts--or if he does, he must not care that no one can hear what he's saying. Maybe that's why the expression "Talk to the foot" never became popular.

The good-looking £59 Motorola Motopure H12 is a petite aluminum bar, about the thickness of a deck of cards and the length of a piece of chewing gum. The subtle blue power light on the front is one of the few that don't suggest that you'll beaming up to the mothership at any moment.

The comfortable clear plastic hook holds the Motorola Motopure H12 to your ear securely - a good thing since the rubber-covered speaker will be too big to fit snugly inside most ears.

The button layout is good. A big circular button on the front lets you answer and end calls. Holding it down for a few seconds triggers a redial - a feature that we accidentally invoked several times. Simultaneously pressing the two volume buttons located on the side mutes the sound.

Motorola claims that the Motorola Motopure H12 has a talk time between battery charges of 5.5 hours - and based on our use over several days we have no reason to doubt it.

The Motorola Motopure H12 comes bundled with both desktop and travel AC chargers, but no USB charger.
