The headsets themselves are built very well - same goes with the charging case. The plastics Bragi used are high quality, and they feel resilient enough to take a tumble safely. They also have the looks to match the feel.
These earbuds use advanced technology (near field magnetic induction) which originated in the hearing aid industry to sync up with each other each time you activate them. This ensures that the audio you hear is perfectly in sync between the two earbuds at all times - which isn't always the case
There's a heartrate sensor to track your activity level, and the Bragi Dash is also advanced enough to keep track of your step count and activity duration - all without being attached to your phone (yes, it can play music too so you really can leave your phone at home). Just double touch the l...
While there is a long feature list, most of these aren't ready for reliable use. The heartrate monitors are unreliable, the personal assistant is virtually unusable, and touch-sensitive gestures need a lot of work at well.
The Hint will work up to 150 feet (about 50 meters) away from your phone. This means that you can leave your phone charging in your house, and go around your house without worrying about missing any calls.
The Hint only offers 3 hours of talk time per charge. This can be extended if you bring the charger which acts as a battery bank with 2 additional charges, however you can't use it while its charging and it's another item to carry around.
With a bulky proprietary charger and laughably short charging cable, the Hint is inconvenient to charge. If the charger gets lost or damaged you will need to find a new charger (which is currently unlisted on both Motorola.com as well as Amazon).
The rear plate is a physical button which can call the previous contact (double tap) or activate Siri (long tap) as well as a single volume button (5 levels - it cycles through from low to high and then back to low)
There is a small LED which is constantly blinking whenever the headset is connected to your phone. This will draw others attention, making it more awkward to use in public (one of the main reasons for going with a headset that doesn't stick out of your ear).
It's amazing how compact the earbud and portable charger both are. The diameter of the earpiece and charger are both considerably smaller than a dime. The earpiece itself is about the same size as regular wired earbuds, which is amazing considering that it has a battery and charging elements t...
The speaker inside provides good, clear sound that gets sufficiently loud without sounding tinny. It can be used to play music, take calls, and more with no issues. The bass is slightly lacking, but that isn't surprising given the price and minuscule size.
The mic on this bluetooth headset isn't the best. While users on the other end can still make out what is being said, the quality of audio that the mic picks up is worse than even modern budget smartphones.
