Motorola launches two new wireless headsets, the Moto Pulse and Moto Surround

Earlier today, Motorola unveiled three new Android smartphones, the Moto X Style, the Moto X Play, and the Moto G (2015). As it turns out, Motorola also decided to unveil a couple of new wireless headsets to go along with the revamped smartphone lineup. Called the Motorola Moto Pulse and Moto Surround, the two new wireless headsets are already available for purchase from Motorola's official website.

Priced at $59.99, the Motorola Pulse is the cheaper of the two new Motorola headsets. It features a simple over-the-ear design that can be folded when traveling, and Motorola says that the Moto Pulse can last for up to 18 hours if fully charged. The headphones are available in either Chalk White or Black.

While the Motorola Moto Pulse, priced at $69.99, is an accessory that's probably best suited for listening to music on the go, the Moto Surround caters to people who spend a lot of time on the phone. The waterproof and sweatproof in-ear headphones connect to a large base that's designed to rest on your shoulders. The base integrates a microphone, and it also comes with a blue notification light to alert you of incoming calls when the ear buds are off. According to the manufacturer, the Surround lasts for about 12 hours on a single charge.

Both the Moto Surround and the Moto Pulse are compatible with all Android smartphones, iPhones, iPads, and basically any device with Bluetooth connectivity.

I am glad to see Motorola put out all this stuff. However I was kind of waiting for the next gen Moto 360. I still hope Motorola will put out another 360.

Looks like I'm going to have to put my Infinims down for a minute and go back to motorola. I had the buds but they did not have the vibrate function with incoming calls. Now that the new motorolas have the vibrate function, and are bluetooth 4.1 and sweat proof I'm going to have to try these... My only concern is where do the earbuds rest if they are not int he ear?? I really like the wire management of the infinims...

I believe the earbuds attach magnetically to the ends of the plastic peace that rests around your neck.

I like those Moto Pulse! I'm really leaning toward Moto products after loving my first gen Moto G. The only reason I switched was because it only had 8gb of memory and no SD Slot. But now with the 3rd gen fixing all of my gripes, I hope my carrier gets the new Moto G.

The 2013 LG Tone-like Motorola headset was not good. Hopefully this one will be better.

I'm a little dubious yet. Do they stream high enough quality audio? Either Cambridge's apt-x or straight aac?
