    Design

    Rating Average

    motorola motopure h12 The look and feel of this miniature headset reminds one of portable radios that were used a long time back. The retro look is supplemented by a shiny glossy black plastic. It is an extremely light headset, weighing about 12 grams. The docking cradle of the MOTOPURE H12 is excellent in design and the headset rests conveniently on the docking cradle via magnetic contacts, which keeps it securely in place. The ear hook is made of translucent material which gives a somewhat cheap outlook. But it has the advantage of feeling very light when the hook is placed behind the ear.

    The power button is located at one end of the headset, which provides users the option of switching the headset off, when it’s not is use. There is a single button at the front part of the headset that gives the call/command functionality. At the bottom part of the MOTOPURE H12 is the micro-USB connector for charging the headset. The volume buttons are placed on the side of the headset device, and are easily accessible.

    Features

    Rating Average

    The most significant feature of the MOTOPURE H12 Bluetooth headset is Motorola’s CrystalTalk sound enhancement and the advanced noise removal technology. The total talk time is around five and a half hours and standby time is around eight days. The pairing functionality is very easy to work with and as soon as the device is powered on, it enters the Pairing mode. The battery life is comfortably long and the headset gives great functionality for power users. Two ear bud cushions are added in the box and there is an optional ear hook. The headset can be charged in more than one way; you can put it in a case charger or use a desktop charger which keeps the device in a standing position when being charged.

    Performance

    Rating Average

    The audio performance is quite commendable for the MOTOPURE H12 headset, and the CrystalTalk sound technology proves true to its word. The background noise cancellation is not 100 percent effective but it is sufficient for a good audio experience. Having said that, some reviews also suggest that Motorola’s MOTOPURE H12 should boast of noise reduction, rather than noise cancellation features. This was because in very crowded places, the call quality drops a little. The talk time, according to user reviews, is found to be 5.5 hours (as was claimed) and the standby time with a few calls was around 3 days. The light weight of the headset makes it a very comfortable device to wear and because of that and the beautiful design it has, you will probably not think of changing it even in the long-run.
