Motorola’s Moto Hint, the little earbud Bluetooth headset thingy that can be used to access some of the Google Voice search and Moto Voice stuff you regularly use on your Moto X (or DROID), has dropped to just $79.99 on Motorola’s web store. Originally priced at $150, this earbud lets you ask about the weather, your upcoming schedule, directions to a location, or call someone without needing to touch your phone. It can actually be paired with any Bluetooth enabled smartphone for calls, but you get the full experience when paired with a Motorola device.
I spent some time with the Moto Hint a few months back and came away impressed by some things (fit, finish, look, battery life and case, etc.), while others left me looking elsewhere (volume is way too low when maxed out) for a Bluetooth experience in the $150 price range. But with the Hint at just $80, it’s probably now worth considering. If you want a Bluetooth headset that won’t make you look like the guy in the cheap suit at Starbucks talking loudly on a hands-free call, this is one to consider.
The Moto Hint also comes with leather, wood, or fabric accents. Classy.
