    I would LOVE this. I almost exclusively use bluetooth stereo earbuds (present set is by LG and very good) but they all either are connected via wires or as with my LG, are connected to a piece of hardware I wear around my neck. When I saw Moto Hint, I was hoping for a stereo equivalent and this looks like the answer.

    Agreed...hadn't read that far into the article--$299 is already 'Ouch!' but €300 is double 'Ouch!'

    Wow! Finally! These look awesome.

    Definitely getting these as soon as they ship to the UK.

    Certainly like the concept, hopefully the price will come down in a year or two.

    I was reading about these, they are MUCH more than just Bluetooth headphones. Heart rate monitor, 4gb RAM, standalone music function, pass through mode to hear ambient sounds, etc. Amazing little buggers, I'm first in line for these.

    What is the battery life like though ? Surely having so much functionality would render the battery life very low ?

    ----------

    Actually just found out, 3 hours of music play back... pretty crap if you want to listen to music all day like myself while working. But decent for the gym or a good run

    yep....that has alway been the drawback to these small kind of earbuds, Battery life is just not quite there yet. I like where this particular brand is headed. But I need more battery life.......

    Agree. Had mine for something like 18 months now. Only used them once or twice from full to flat on really long walks but fairly certain I got 7-8 hours out of them.
    Reminds me I need to get some more comply tips from Amazon!

    ^^ this. My right is good but my left ear, they slip and tend to work loose enough that I lose bass response. PIA. I need somehow to find tips that I can heat up and mold into my ear so they stay better.
