The Motorola Elite Sliver Bluetooth Headset is a sleek, unobtrusive headset with a 333-foot range that's easy to use. Its design is such that the components are hidden, leaving only a tiny piece of metal in the front for a polished appearance while you're wearing it. The headset comes with a portable case that charges the headset, providing up to 15 hours of talk time.

Of course, clear sound is ensured for all your calls. CrystalTalk Technology uses two mics to cancel out unwanted noise so you'll be heard clearly on the other end. The wideband speaker plus additional technology affords increased clarity and richer sound.

If you have an Android phone, there's an added perk for you -- download the free My MotoSpeaker and you'll be able to start a text, hear an incoming text and reply all with your headset; without even touching your phone.

Pairing is very easy -- if your phone has NFC (Near Field Communication), you can simply tap the headset against your phone to pair. Additionally, the Elite Sliver Bluetooth Headset lets you benefit from voice prompts and controls. With support for A2DP, you can stream music, video, games and navigation through the headset.

      Great sound quality both hearing and being heard. There is no mic boom which make the unit almost invisible. Noise cancellation is good, very comfortable. The small charging case is great easily fits in a pocket, computer bag or purse. I have used it for approx. 2 with no problems - anyone who likes an over-the-hear headset will find this one meets their needs. I have not used this while driving as my vehicle has a Bluetooth system.

      I really love the idea and the design but the execution of the idea seems to be very poor. I have got to say that the audio driver is killer but what is it good for if the sliver is useless. I have used the Sliver for two months and now I cannot pair it with anything. When I turn the headset off I can still hear the voice prompts meaning that it remains on and even in the charger keeps telling me that it is ready to pair. Also, there is no option to control the level of the built in voice prompt, which makes it very annoying at times. Reset does not work, which asks for implementation of the hardware based reset, the little reset hole. The last thing that made my experience a little less pleasant is that the headset cannot be upgraded with firmware, which should be a must feature for a device like this. I chatted with the tech support but they could not help me with anything and nothing got resolved. I am returning the Sliver.

      Comments about Motorola Elite Sliver Bluetooth Headset:

      Pros- compact,fits good in ear.

      Cons- when battery gets low it starts to malfunction. you try and disconnect and it says it's disconnected on your phone screen but it comes back on and you are unable to answer your phone because now it's not in your ear anymore. Lately it just works when it feel like. So.. pulled out my old Plantronics and it's working fine. Don't waste your money on Motorola. My old Plantronics is 3 yrs old and works like a charm. Just wanted more features that's why I tried the Motorola.

        Not Worth Buying

          Comments about Motorola Elite Sliver Bluetooth Headset:

          The headset makes a lot of promises but does not deliver.
          It randomly makes calls, drops signal ALOT.
          After about 2 weeks of using the on/off switch doesn't work well.
          I bought 2 of these and both have the exact same issues.

          As far as having a range of over 200 feet, definitely not true.

            Things that are good: 1.Lasts a long time on one charge. 2.Fast recharge. 3.I don't even feel it when I'm wearing it. 4.Small. 5.Super small. 6.I don't even know its there 'cause its so small.

            Things that are bad: 1. The noise cancelling works so good that sometimes it cancels out my voice. 2.Picks up a ton of background noise when I use it, callers have a hard time hearing me when I'm driving.

            I can hear clearly. The battery lasts forever. The Android app is great for handsfree texting. I have no complaints about this thing. The storage case actually charges the headset twice without being charged itself, AND keeps it from being crushed in a bag, and that is amazing. I have tried probably fifteen bluetooth headsets, as I am on the road constantly, and this one is my favorite yet.

            The headset is easy to pair and I like the way it tells you the charge remaining each time you turn it in. The case charger is a plus for charging and a great storage unit. I know they say it has a huge range but trust me, 15-20 feet is about it.

              This bluetooth headset sounds great and has a very high volume playing music from your phone or tablet But for phone conversation the audio still loud but change to a thin can metallic sound making it hard to understand and second the Microphone from this bluetooth is far away from your mouth, that the noice cancellation is strugling to recognice between background noice and your talking, you have to speak a little louder , making this headset best for office workers or very quiet place.
              It has an App. to download from google this app. looks nice but 1 is not compatible with all phones and 2 makes no visible difference in the change of settings. Remember the microphone is still too far away from your mouth .
              They advertize to reach 300f. but at 20 feet is loosing signal

                    This is a great product. I have one and bought this one for my adult son, who loves it also. People can hear you clearly, even in wind, you can hear them, and I sometimes forget it is on my ear because it is so comfortable and light. And the recharging box is great. I only charge mine every 3 days or so, and it protects the earpiece when not in use.
