Pros Good sound quality, light weight, uses the same charger as my phone
Cons Fit can be dodgy, single-button control not the greatest
Summary Bluetooth was the one feature I definitely wanted on my new phone, because I hate headset wires with a passion. I got a Motorola E815 and chose the HS820 because it was the less expensive of the two Motorola headsets available (the other one is the HS850).
There are some very good things here...the charger is the same one used by the phone, which is a big deal to me...simple is good. The sound quality is just fine, connectivity is no problem at all, and overall I think it's a good headset.
At first the headset feels like it wants to fall off, but it stays on quite well and I've gotten used to it. I wouldn't say it feels secure, though. That ear hook could use some work.
The one thing I don't like is the multifunction button. To turn it on you have to press the button for four seconds, until you get a stuttering blink from the LED. But don't press it for five seconds, because then it will try to re-sync with the phone.
Since I really don't want to leave the headset on all the time, I'd much prefer it if there was a simpler way to turn it on...one that doesn't require looking at it or counting out the four seconds, neither of which I want to do while driving.
Fortunately, there is...on a different headset. It's the Motorola HS850, which turns on and connects to the phone (reportedly in a couple of seconds) when you flip open the mic boom, and turns off when you close it again. For this reason alone, I'm returning the 820 and have ordered an 850.
"Great Headset"on by rdpetrillo
Pros Lightweight, Quick Paring with Blutooth phone, Useful Features.
Cons Use in windy conditions,( driving with car windows, conv. top down and air conditioner wind) is impossible
Summary I have tried several other bluetooth ear pieces. and this truly is the best fitting, most useful out of all of them. Super talk and standby time. quick and ez charge time.
Pros Small, light weight. Easy to use. Good battery life.
Cons Needs to "hug" my ear a bit more tightly.
Summary I've tried other headsets, including Motorola's HS850, and I keep coming back to this guy. I can hear clearly and more importantly the poeple I am calling can hear me clearly (not so with the HS850). My only real complaint (and it's not exclusive to this headset) is that it doen't feel like it is securely against my ear. I am constantly adjusting it for fear that it has moved out of position, only to find that it is exactly where it should be.
Pros The wireless thing is very nice, I've only had it for a day or two so I'm still evaluating it. I have found that if you're on the highway, you'll need to eliminate all background noise to be heard. Once I got off the freeway, the other person said i sound
Cons The constant blue light is cool for about the first 20 minutes, then it gets annoying. wish you could turn it off. again, I just got mine so I'm still finding out what my limitations. I have yet to run across anyone else with a BT headset to ask their opi
"Mediocre at Best"on by rclose11
Pros lightweight, good audio at times,
Cons frequent disconnects from cell, bad quality sound in noisy backgrounds
Summary This bluetooth earpiece is a mediocre product for an exhorbitant price. While the audio quality is clear, it is often difficult to hear because of low volume, with any background noise, and the individuals spoken to at the other end of the phone, often have problems in hearing, as the sound becomes muffled in a poor attempt at background suppression of noise. Disconnection between the phone and ear piece is often common after about 1 hour of conversation. It is difficult to aacertain whether the problem is the earpiece or the telephone. My particular phone is a Motorola V600. The Unit does not hug the head but slides around as the head moves.
