Cardo S-800 Bluetooth Headset

 

Cardo has certainly made a name for itself in the past year as a serious headset manufacturer. Going head to head with well-known names like Jabra and Plantronics, Cardo has stood its ground with excellent Bluetooth headsets such as the Cardo S-2 and...

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...

Functional, jam-packed Bluetooth headset

 

As many more cell phones come with Bluetooth built-in there are more people who are buying and using wireless headsets. Some can be quite large and others can be fairly small. The Cardo S-800 is one of the smallest headsets available, weighing in at...

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...
