Found what I wanted at a Costco near work. Must be on sale, because
it was $42 and change out the door.
Did a funny thing when I put it on the charger: Was *flashing* red
then went out entirely. Un-plugged and re-plugged the charger from
it and it charged normally.
When I first tried to pair it with my Centro, my Centro locked-up,
didn't find it, wouldn't cancel, etc. Had to "cycle the power" by
removing and re-installing the battery. On the next attempt it
paired right up and all was well.
So far it seems to be working great. The "dropping out" problem
seems to be gone. It's actually more "hear-able" than the
in-your-ear Jabra was. The transmit audio isn't as clear, but it's
acceptable. The Jabra was worthless in high noise environments, such
as in the car with the windows down at speed. The Moto H715 actually
works quite well in such environments. I tested it by leaving myself
voicemail at work from my car at 65 MPH with open windows in traffic
this morning, and I was actually easily intelligible. At lower
speeds, even with noise from other cars, you almost wouldn't know the
outside noises were there. It's far more comfortable than the Jabra
was, but at certain head angles it *feels* like it's going to fall
off my ear. (Hasn't yet, and I've mildly tried to provoke it.)
I really like the fact that, to turn it on, you flip down the little
boom. I can't count the number of times I clipped my Jabra on, only
to realize, later, that I'd never turned it on. (Leading to some
awfully mystified people at the other end of calls I initiated,
So far I'd call it a success! Thanks for the recommendation, John.
