The earbud accessories for the lightweight Motorola Finiti ($130 as of March 1, 2011) Bluetooth headset are the most peculiar I've seen in years--somehow I found this unusual design more noteworthy than the headset's excellent noise cancellation. To don the Finiti in hook mode, you wear an earbud cover that looks a lot like a soda can's pull tab (in gel form). If you'd rather ditch the hook, you switch to the earbud cover shaped like a tadpole, instead. Replacing the Finiti's earbud covers took more time than normal because of their oddball shapes; you need to ensure that the gel covers' grooves align perfectly with the Finiti's earpiece to make it sit properly. Despite the kooky appearance of the earbud accessories, both Finiti wearing styles worked well--as long as I stayed stationary. When I wanted to go sans hook, the "tail" part of the gel cover, which jutted out of my ear, distributed the weight (or lack thereof) nicely, keeping the headset in place. The Finiti didn't feel terribly secure when I walked around, however; in fact, the headset popped right out of my ear whenever I tilted my head to one side. I got tired of that, so I reattached the Finiti's hook, and from then on I experienced zero slippage.
The $129 Motorola Finiti is the company's latest high-end Bluetooth headset. It includes many of the same features that competitors offer, such as the ability to listen to and dictate text messages, a voice prompt-based interface with voice control, and a Stealth mode that cancels up to 40 mile per hour winds. Unfortunately, the Finiti didn't measure up in testing. It's not as bad as the Motorola Oasis ($79.99, 2.5 stars), but the Finiti's significantly higher price cancels out its slightly better performance. The Motorola Finiti measures 2.1 by 0.7 by 0.4 inches (HWD) and weighs 0.4 ounces. The front panel is a cheap-looking chrome plastic cover with a crease down the center. The back is matte black plastic, while the top and bottom edges feature a comfortable, soft touch rubber. The Motorola Finiti isn't ugly, but it doesn't look any more expensive or stylish than, say, the single-mic Plantronics Explorer 395 ($49.95, 3.5 stars). The headset has plenty of controls. A pair of volume buttons, the main LED, and a stealth mode button are embedded in the top edge. The bottom edge contains a hardware power switch, while the back edge houses the micro-USB multi-function Call button and the charger port.
It has been more than a year since Motorola introduced the Endeavor HX1, which is one of a few Bluetooth headsets that can use bone conduction to translate the vibration of the jaw into speech. Now Motorola has come out with its successor, the Motorola Finiti, which debuted this year at CTIA's fall show. The Finiti has the same "stealth" bone conduction mode for extremely noisy situations and Motorola's CrystalTalk noise cancellation technology for everyday use. Other features include A2DP streaming, multipoint, voice prompts, and compatibility with the MotoSpeak app, which reads out incoming texts and lets you dictate a reply. The Motorola Finiti retails for $129.99, which we think is a fair price for such a great-sounding headset. As part of Motorola's Elite series of headsets, the Finiti is designed to catch your eye with its shiny chrome finish. Yet it still looks like a traditional Bluetooth headset, and has a rectangular design similar to the Motorola CommandOne. The measurements are also the same, at 2.13 inches long by 0.73 inch wide by 0.43 inch thick. The sides are covered in a soft rubber material and the overall headset is slightly curved for improved comfort.
Finding themselves in a healthy position right now in the mobile space doesn't mean that veteran handset maker Motorola is going to dedicate their efforts solely to cell phones. Rather, they're still pushing forward in the Bluetooth headset segment by conjuring up their latest achievement; . Sounding a lot like a space age device, the Motorola FINITI is part of their Elite Series which means that it's manufactured with the utmost care and accuracy to provide an encompassing experience. Combining it with their MotoSpeak Android app, you can essentially even compose a text message by simply speaking it – which of course, supplements the hands-free experience. Included with the packaging are 5 ear gels, 1 ear hook, wall charger, and a user guide.The Motorola FINITI definitely jumps out more than others with its painted chrome finish which is highly reflective. Granted it's constructed out of plastic, which makes it very lightweight, we do like the rubbery soft touch coating on its sides which contrasts well for its color scheme.At first glance, the earpiece looks mightily intimidating with its spout jutting out and waiting to embrace the inner most portions of your ear canal.
