Motorola Finiti

The Motorola Finiti Bluetooth headset has excellent call quality in regular operational mode. If you use its well-reviewed noise-canceling Stealth technology, however, reviewers say your voice sounds metallic and robotic. The Finiti has a traditional rectangular design with a chrome covering, but the earbuds are unusually shaped.

Comfort

Takes practice to get the right fit.Reviewers say the Motorola Finiti's earbuds fit comfortably and easily. The headset comes with a selection of ear fittings with optional loop styles, and some users find the hookless model isn't very secure. The headset's Stealth mode requires that the earpiece's sensor touch the ear canal, which is uncomfortable for some users. One reviewer had problems keeping the earbud in his ear when he moved his head around.

Usability

Straightforward, but buttons are tiny.There are no surprises using the Motorola Finiti. Its controls are intuitive, although the multipurpose button is small and causes problems for some. In addition, the volume button is difficult to find at first. The Finiti supports basic voice controls and gives some voice prompts. Its battery will last for five hours talk-time and six days on standby.

Appearance

Traditional overall design, but strange-looking earbuds.The Motorola Finiti has a traditional rectangular headset design with a shiny chrome finish that one reviewer calls "cheap looking." Its earbuds are called "unusual;" one tester likens the hookless models to a tadpole and the hooked ones to a "soda can pull-tab."
