Motorola Announces HX-1 Bluetooth Headset

Motorola has been a leader in the Bluetooth headset market for years and in keeping with that tradition, the company has announced its latest BT headset, the Endeavor HX-1. Motorola is hanging the HX-1's hat on being the only Bluetooth headset to use true bone conduction technology. The headset has a "Stealth" mode that will switch off the conventional microphone and turns on an in-ear sensor that picks up bone vibrations.

The technology is similar to the popular Jawbone headsets that pick up vibrations from outside the face by contacting with the jaw bone. Motorola hasn't released a price or U.S. release date but speculation has this new headset hitting Asian markets in July.
