As we already mentioned above, Motorola HT820 is with behind-the-neck design just like Nokia BH-601 and Jabra BT620, and this determines the resemblance of its shape to the other two earpieces. Unlike them, the earpieces themselves are neither circular nor angular, but are of oval shape extending backwards. They have a headband which is not very flexible with the Motorola logo in the middle of its back part which will stand in the middle of your neck when you wear it. HТ820 are made of plastic in several nuances of the gray color: the left and right earpieces are in combination of gray and silver and the surface is black with numerous gray spots. There are circular emblems on each of them with the Motorola logo, which are in fact, buttons switching on lights. In operating regime the Motorola logo flashes in blue. The interesting thing here is that first flashes one of them, then the other, then the second again and the first again, not abruptly but very smoothly and with overlapping.

These buttons here are Call key (on the left) and play/pause (on the right) which are slightly raised and their position is easily felt – pushing them is soft but with sufficient tactile response. There is a coupe of buttons on the upper side on each earpiece. They are for sound control on the left side and for song change on the right side, respectively. Unlike Jabra 620, the buttons are not in a common cell but at a little distance from each other. Distinguishing one from the other is easy, pressing them – too.

The softener over the earpieces is somewhat different from the other models we have used. With the three models (Nokia BH-601, Jabra BT620 and Plantronics 590A) there is a complete soft cover of something like foam; it is not so with HT820. The very speaker is covered with a fine mesh and there is a comparatively soft ring of artificial leather which stands practically close to your face. For more convenient earpieces wearing a rubber softener is provided at the beginning of the headband since in this part it touches your ears or your face and we would want them to be quite soft, anyway.

In the simplified design with a few elements there are more things on the right earpiece than on the left one. Here are the microphone, a miniUSB charging port and 2.5 mm jack for connection to a 3.5 mm sound source to the cable of the set.
