Motorola TX500 Bluetooth Speakerphone Review

The Motorola TX500 Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone is extremely easy to pair with a smart phone and has excellent sound. For anyone looking to add basic hands free capability to their vehicle the TX500 is a great value.

Motorola has updated its line of Bluetooth 3.0 speakerphones with nicer lines and has made them even easier to use. When you turn on the TX500 a friendly voice walks you through the steps of pairing it to your phone. It really could not be easier. It literally takes seconds.

The sound quality is very good in both directions with the TX500. The 2 watt speaker has an EQ setting that sounds great right out of the box. The unit has a standby time of about 6 months and a talk time of 45 hours. We like that it gives us a battery status whenever it’s turned on so we can charge it if the battery is getting low. This was never an issue as we simply charged it on the weekend.

For under $50 it’s hard to go wrong with the Motorola TX500 and we recommend it to anyone looking for basic hands free capability with excellent sound.

Grove Bamboo iPhone Case

If you want a really cool custom case for your iPhone, iPad or just some bamboo art to throw on the wall check out what the hipsters at Grove are doing in Portland OR.

One of our sound engineers showed up with this new design based on an image his brother created for him. He sent it to the folks at Grove and $130 and a couple of months later his case showed up. It’s a tight fitting custom bamboo work of art.

Yes, that’s a bit of change to pay for a case when you can pick up a basic Speck unit that will do the job for $20. However, it you plan on keeping your gadget for a while or want to surprise someone with a personalized case it’s pretty nice.

Grove has been around a while but we had never taken the time to actually check out a case. We were impressed at how tight fitting and solid it felt. Nice work out of Portland and worth considering if you want to splurge.
