I rarely use Bluetooth headsets, I don't care for them really since they are always in one ear and tend to fall out of it regardless of the design.  However when I got a chance to review the Cardo S-2 Stereo Bluetooth Headset, I was more enticed by the...

Excellent sound quality and easy to use. Decent price

Bluetooth pairing can be flakey at times

I put the Cardo S-2 through its paces and I have to say that it did perform well in many of them. Sound quality and basic functionality was flawless once you got it paired with a device. It was the pairing though that frustrated me to no end. It would...

Cardo S-2 stereo Bluetooth headphones rock you wirelessly

 

Ad} I haven't tried a lot of stereo Bluetooth headphones, but I have tried quite a few Bluetooth headsets, and I kept going back to the Cardo scala 500 for the longest time, because I found it had the best call clarity and highest volume levels that...

Budget priced

Plastic arm snapped after light usage & zero abuse, rendering the unit useless. Sound is good, not "fantastic". Behind-ear plastic blades are far from comfortable. Does not lay flat, thus difficult to stow in a backpack, etc. Battery marginal

Cardo S-2 Bluetooth Stereo headphones

 

If you don't mind looking at your purchase as 'disposable', not a bad buy, otherwise, keep shopping for a different product. My argument with Cust service was that the 1st replacement should have been an upgrade to a model without known quality issue....

Great layout, good sound, comfortable fit

Cardo S2 has a KNOWN MAJOR quality issue. Had 2 headsets break, both lasting about 6 months

Cardo S-2 Bluetooth Stereo headphones

 

Would be a good set of blue tooth headphones if the quality was not poor.

Good sound. Fairly easy to pair and easy to use. Nice to have full functions on headset

Poor quality. The plastic on the ear pieces breaks. First set lasted one month before on ear piece broke. Cardo replaced under warranty. Second set broke again in a month this time both ears
