The Moor bluetooth headset was getting very good reviews on MobileFun and was coming out with 4 and a half stars out of 72 reviews. I wanted to see what the fuss was all about so I requested it for review.
First of all, let me say that the feel and quality of this headset when you get it out of the box is amazing. It feels very solid and doesn't have a cheap plasticky feeling like a lot of other bluetooth headsets. In my opinion, it actually feels more solid than the big old cans that are the Beats by Dr Dre. The materials used are very high quality and you know time has been taken in the elements used.
The design of the headset is very muted and clean. No funny bits or funky designs: it's smart and minimal. The design of it is something a lot will like because it's simple.
Connectivity and hooking it up to my bluetooth hardware such as my iPad and HTC Desire was a breeze when you actually read the instructions on how to.
The headset has some quick easy access buttons on the right side. Enabling you to turn the headset on and off, skip tracks and adjust the volume. These buttons actually worked great, letting me skip tracks on my phone or iPad easily without having to get it out of my bag or pocket. Obviously, there is a slight delay because it's using bluetooth technology so don't expect instant change of track when you hit skip. With the raised rubber on each button, it is also easy to tell which button is which; a simple touch works very well.
On the bottom of the right side, there is a microphone hole and charging port. The microphone is a great addition, allowing me to take calls through my phone on the go, and walk around the house talking on Skype through my iPad. Charging is done through USB and takes up to 3 hours. The battery life is fantastic. The headset allows you to talk on the phone for a marathon of 11 hours and listen to music continuously for 10 hours.
The headset can be extended to fit larger heads but it only goes a little way meaning some people with larger heads may find it difficult to use the headset.
Finally, on to sound quality. The sound quality is good, but not fantastic. Don't expect amazing, high-definition sound like the type you get out of Beats by Dr Dre. The sound is good enough for the average listener and person who is no audiophile. I've been used to using high quality expensive headphones for a year or two now because I am an audiophile so this does not match up to my Harmon Kardons and never will.
As always, you're getting a bang for your buck here. From things such as the material down to the little microphone you're getting value for money and a quality product. The Moor stereo bluetooth headset is great for the average listener who just wants a simple, good looking and trust worthy headset. The battery life is amazing so you can use this headset for hours without having to worry about charging it. Buying this product is a no-brainer.
