    Getting closer and closer to that superspy, secret service agent ear bud. The Motorola Hint has a 10 hour battery, has an IR sensor to turn on when it senses it is in your ear and is pretty small, with the charger small enough to fit on your keychain. But at $150, doubt it will sell a ton.

    Interesting. Looks a bit like a hearing aide. Maybe it looks better in person.

    It looks promising. It works with phones that have android 4.3 or better. It's not cheap, but I'm not that put off. Can't wait for reviews.

    If it's good quality, I don't see how $150 is too much to ask...

    That video is crazy.

    I wish I liked in ear headphones. I can never seem to get them comfortable. I can last about an hour then the pain!

    Will they work with non Motorola devices?

    They look pretty cool.

    LOL.... i was just going to write that!
    I have been waiting for something like this. They have similar ones on Amazon. But battery life is always around 3 hours tops. So that leaves it out for me.
    But the Motorola Hint has 10 hour battery. I might have to check this out.....

    Yes it works with non-Moto devices, even iPhones.

    But certain features will only work with the Moto X.

    I'd be far more interested if they came as a pair so I could listen to music/radio/podcast or watch video in stereo.
