Jabra Motion Review
As any high-end Bluetooth headset should, the Jabra Motion delivers excellent sound quality thanks to its large speaker, dual microphones, and noise cancellation features. Incoming calls are loud, clear and natural, with good depth and very little audible digitizing. On the other side of the line, our voice sounds very natural and easy to understand. Background noise does have a noticeable negative impact on sound quality, but the conversation is still easy to follow even when the headset's noise reduction kicks in.
According to its maker, the Jabra Motion should deliver 7 hours of talk time on a single charge, which is an average figure – less than what we were expecting to get out of a pricey headset that should be large enough to have a decent battery packed in there. Nevertheless, the device should last throughout an entire work day even if it is heavily used. Stand-by time is over two weeks. Since the headset is charged through its microUSB port, you'll be able to charge it using any microUSB cable you have lying around.
All in all, our testing of the Jabra Motion Bluetooth headset didn't go as smoothly as we expected. We did encounter a few annoyances here and there – the twitchy advanced features and the frustrating volume control, to name a few, and that shouldn't happen to a user who just spent over $100 on such a gizmo. But on the other hand, we're quite happy with its professional design, its audio performance and with its comfortable fit, and ultimately, these are the factors that either make or break a headset. Do we recommend it? Well, if comfort and call quality are your top priorities, then feel free to give it a try. But if you're also craving for all the bells and whistles a premium headset can provide, perhaps the Jabra Motion isn't the best option you can possibly find at this price point.
