Cardo S-800 Bluetooth Headset review: Cardo S-800 Bluetooth Headset


The Cardo S-800 is an attractive headset with plenty of interesting features, such as a headset location buzzer, a Hot Dial/speed dial function, a battery status indicator, and more. It also has great sound quality.

The Cardo S-800 has difficult-to-access keys and an uncomfortable fit.

The Cardo S-800 is certainly a compact and full-featured Bluetooth headset, but it is seriously marred by design imperfections.

Review: Review of the Cardo S-800 Bluetooth headset


Cardo's S-800 Bluetooth wireless headset sports a fashionable design and sports some interesting features. Ricky Cadden gives it a go and comes out of the adventure with mixed thoughts that he has put in this review.

The Cardo S-800 is certainly a strikingly designed Bluetooth headset, and offers awesome battery life for such a small design. The lightweight materials allow the S-800 to nearly disappear from your ear, and the strong metal earloop fit very...

Cardo S-800 Bluetooth Headset


One of the most attractive features of a bluetooth headset is its small size, with smaller obviously being better (Have you ever laughed to yourself watching some putz walking around with an enormous bluetooth device stuck to the side of their head?)....

The Cardo S800 has many more features than most bluetooth devices have. The design is compact yet stylish for a business person or anyone that wants most of the features their phone already has without fumbling with menus and clicking. Instead, a...

Functional, jam-packed Bluetooth headset

good sound quality, good construction, lots of features, great technology

buttons are small and awkward, square design is not as "fashionable" as other designs

The Cardo S-800 is a great little headset. The button design is a little quirky. There are some awkward pushes to do to activate all the features and it is tough to remember which one to push for which feature. That being said, the feature set is...
