Motorola has officially announced its latest Bluetooth headset, the Oasis. We met with Motorola recently to discuss the Oasis, and were told the headset was created with a focus around comfort.
The Oasis comes with three different sized ear-gels, and after a few days of use, we can confirm that the headset is indeed comfortable. It's also designed to be less conspicuous than most Bluetooth headsets, with most of the device's hardware hidden behind your ear. Motorola spent time designing the device to be balanced, too, and so it didn't feel hefty or unstable on my ear. Its hinge design allows the device to fit in either left or right ear, and also fold down to a very pocketable size.
The Oasis sports a small metal boom which houses the device's dual microphones. The rubber backside has easily accessible volume controls, a mute button, and a small power button.
Motorola also designed the Oasis so that it required little to no setup on the user's end. It hopes that most owners won't have to use the manual, thanks to a voice that greets and walks Oasis owners through an easy setup.
The Oasis is set to debut in AT&T stores for $79.99, and we suspect future outlets will carry the device in the future, too.
