Motorola outs bone-conduction HX1 headset

updated 08:55 am EDT, Thu June 18, 2009

Moto Endeavor HX1 Headset

Motorola today leapt into the field of bone conduction Bluetooth headsets and launched the Endeavor HX1. Like the Aliph Jawbone and a few rivals, the HX1 captures the vibrations from the jaw for voice, letting users speak in a normal tone in loud environments. Unlike the Jawbone, though, this mode is optional and can be dropped in favor of a microphone.

Noise cancellation also works in the opposite direction on the headset, which lasts for seven hours on a charge. Owners can pair with multiple devices and receive spoken updates on the headset's status. Motorola begins shipping the HX1 in July, starting with Asia and moving on to other areas shortly afterwards.
