Hi, this is Brian Bennett for CNET.com, and right now, we're taking a first look at the new Jabra Motion Bluetooth Headset. Targeted right at mobile phone users who tend to spend a lot of time gabbing, the Motion is an accessory designed for big-time talkers. At $129, the Motion is certainly priced as a high-end, handsfree device too. It goes head-to-head against other premium bluetooth products such as the Plantronics Voyager Legend and Jawbone Era. Sporting a huge over-ear design and big flip down boom mic, the Jabra Motion is a serious piece of wireless hardware. As a trade-off for its girth though, you do get a lot of bells and whistles. Connecting to phones and tablets via wireless bluetooth version 4.0, the Motion also features an NFC chip for fast pairing. Just tap the headset against compatible phones to link. As its name implies, the Jabra Motion is equipped with an accelerometer or motion sensor. With it, the device does nifty tricks like automatically answering incoming calls when you pick the headset up or kicking in extra noise cancellation when it detects continuous movement such as walking. In fact, Jabra claims that the Motion, thanks to its dual microphones and motion sensor, can adapt intelligently to din-filled environments. Internal voice commands are built in as well which allows you to answer and screen calls without touching your handset. The device features touch-sensitive volume controls as well. Other buttons on the Motion include a big call answer/end key that's hard to miss plus a small voice and mute toggle on the boom. You can charge the Motion through a micro-USB port and Jabra claims a single charge provides seven hours of talk-time. One thing I really like about the Jabra Motion Bluetooth Headset is its smartphone companion app which is available for iOS and Android devices. Basically, you can use the app to control many of the headset's features right from your phone. I'm Brian Bennett for CNET.com and this has been a first look at the Jabra Motion bluetooth headset.

Jabra Motion Review
The good: The Jabra Motion offers excellent audio and hands-free call quality. The Motion is also comfortable and fits securely once attached. The headset’s companion phone app is packed with lots of useful features. The Motion pairs quickly via NFC with compatible handsets.
The bad: With its big boom mic design, the Jabra Motion is large and conspicuous. The Motion’s fancy motion sensor abilities don't work as advertised, and at $129, it's also expensive.
The bottom line: If you can live with its massive size, the Jabra Motion’s clear audio and loads of features are hard to resist.
