Motorola H780 Bluetooth Headset Review - Motorola H780 Review


The H780 uses Motorola’s EasyPair system, which makes it a tad easier to pair the headset with a phone or other device. The EasyPair idea is quite simple, but pretty effective and negates the need to remember a complex button pushing sequence to get the headset into pairing mode.

Essentially, every time the headset is switched on it automatically goes into a quick pairing mode. This means that to pair the headset with a phone all you have to do is set your phone into search mode, flick the power button on the H780 and wait until phone finds it. Once it has been discovered by your handset it’s simply a matter of entering the standard 0000 pin code into your phone. The headset’s LED will then flash between purple and blue for a couple of seconds to show that the pairing has been successful.

The H780 supports multipoint so it can be connected to two devices simultaneously. For example you can have it connected to your mobile at the same time as your laptop, or keep it connected to your work and personal mobile at the same time. Stetting this up isn’t straightforward, however, as once you’ve paired it with one handset, you then have to turn both the headset and phone off, before powering the headset back on and pairing it with the second phone. The last phone paired then becomes the primary phone, while the first one takes on the role of the secondary phone. It’s important to know which is which as last number redial and voice dialling only work with the primary handset.

All the usual call functions you’d expect are supported on the H780 as it conforms to the Bluetooth hands-free and headset protocols. However, unlike some models from companies like Jabra it isn’t compatible with A2DP. It’s not a huge loss on a mono headset, unless of course you’re deaf in one ear or use your headset to listen to the news or sports updates from your phone’s onboard FM tuner.
