    Oooh, could you use two for wireless stereo? Reply

    That’d be awesome. As well, how do you take calls with these when they’re already in the ears? And can you control your music with them? Reply

    Not sure I get it, are we trying to make it even more confusing for people around you that don't realize you're on the phone?

    I guess it looks less douchey/rude when not in active use, but so does taking any regular BT headset off (and they already made that very seamless with their flip to standby models).

    I'm not a heavy BT or voice user tho, maybe someone that is can share why they'd prefer this.

    $150! How much do most Bluetooth headsets retail for? Reply

    It's one of the big problems with peripherals today. Like, a mouse is between $5 and $20, but then a Microsoft Arc mouse is $80. The cheap stuff will be crappy; and, though the good stuff will be noticeably better, it'll cost up to five times as much. I wouldn't be surprised if every first-party peripheral was $100 in the next couple years, even if it's a glorified speaker box in your ear. Reply

    Estimated battery life? Jaybirds with similar form factor give 4-6 hours. If they can get it to 10 hours of streaming music/podcasts similar to the LG Tone headset line, I would be in for one. Reply

    3 hours talk time.
    I couldn't find a wireless jaybird that didn't use two earbubs connected with a wire and were a decent amount larger (hanging out of the ear like a plastic child's plastic earring.

    The Motorola Hint appeals to me far more than a smartwatch. I use the Touchless Control features of my Moto X a lot, the Motorola Hint really clicks with me Reply

    are they trying to get the antennas as close as possible to our body? I recently got some interest in BT Headsets (dont have one yet), but apart from a few use-cases I would not like to keep this inside of my ear for too long... Reply

    Waiting for the inevitable "Take a Hint" advertising campaign or internet meme photos. Reply

    I used to have a Motorola Hint in 2009. Great little phone, but a little unusual to reuse the name for a Bluetooth earpiece. They could have called it the tweeter or the whisper or something. Reply
