Get the Hint? If not, Best Buy has an updated version of Motorola's Bluetooth earbud for $129
Best Buy has discontinued the original Motorola Moto Hint Bluetooth earbud. Shed no tears. It appears as though the big box retailer is offering consumers a new updated version of the accessory. According to the packaging, a longer-lasting battery provides users with up to 70% more talk time. A better fitting ear bud provides enhanced audio quality, and the new Hint comes with improved volume controls.

The Moto Hint allows you to wirelessly connect with your Bluetooth enabled smartphone. If that handset happens to be one with Moto Voice (like the Motorola Moto X and the Motorola DROID Turbo for example), you can use your voice to make commands.

Besides the packaging, Best Buy's listing shows that battery life has been extended from the original 10 hours to 17 hours, and CrystalTalk noise-and wind-canceling is now being employed by the Hint to improve audio. If you want to the get the Hint, click on the sourcelink. By the way, Best Buy might have pulled the original model, but it is still listed on Motorola's website priced at $79.99.

We've embedded the promotional video that Motorola produced for the original Hint, just to remind you of the things that the earbud can do.
