The Motorola H17txt Bluetooth earpiece is a really great, small, very functional earpiece that will keep you safe while driving and keep you talking while out and about.

I started testing this one right after testing the Jawbone Icon, so it was a useful to compare the two. The Motorola H17txt can definitely hold it’s own. It has great specs and functions and great battery life.

The H17txt  is powered on when the mouth piece is flipped open.  And flipped closed to power off. The earpiece is small and can easily be folded and tucked into a pocket when not in use. It comes with a few different ear clips to find the perfect fit, or it can be used without. It is also very easily converted for left or right ear use.

The earpiece was super simple to setup. The sound quality is very, very, very good. I can hear the person on the other end nice and loud, and I have had no complaints about them hearing me. The volume rocker is well placed, and turns the earpiece up nice and loud (a big thing for me). I have used it with my iPhone 3Gs, Motorola Droid X, and HTC Droid Incredible without issue. One unique thing about this earpiece is that using the available Motorola MotoSpeak App which is available for Android or Blackberry you can have your text messages read to you (up to 25 words). Now they just need one for iPhone.

    I need the H17txt because of the noise echo cancelling and text function would work great with my phone.

    Here's why I need this earpiece, and I am not making this up: my dog ate my earpiece. Really. I managed to wrestle it out of her mouth, but not before she did significant damage. Half the ear clip is gone, so it falls out of my ear all the time, and the sound quality is no longer quality sound. Please, I'm desperate because I will soon embark on two serious road trips (first Chicago to Seattle & back; then Chicago to Massachusetts & back). I'm not taking the dog. Thanks.
