Wireless Headset HS820 Fashionable headset provides affordable wireless convenience; lengthy talk times complement long hands-free conversations.
If you have a Bluetooth phone, it's time to make the most of it with the Motorola HS820 headset. Comfortable, stylish, and intelligently designed, the HS820 frees you up to multitask and talk whenever, and wherever you please.
Simply turn on the headset to establish a reliable wireless connection to a compatible phone up to 32.8 feet away. The headset's Bluetooth 1.2 compatibility means that you'll enjoy faster connections, better audio quality, adaptive frequency hopping and improved interference rejection (don't worry, it's also compatible with the older Bluetooth 1.1 specification). With up to six hours of talk time, you can converse to your heart's content before you'll need to charge the HS820's internal battery. The headset also has up to 100 hours of standby time, so you're always ready to receive a handsfree call.
No matter how fancy or powerful a headset may be, it's not all that useful if it isn't comfortable. Fortunately, the HS820 has comfort covered. The earhook is designed to work on your left or right ear, while an intuitive function menu and comfortable buttons make everyday use a breeze. There's also an LED light indicator that shows the status of the headset, including notification of pairing mode, pairing successful, power state, charge state and call state. Call management features --such as voice dialing, last number dial, conference calling and hold-- are available right from the headset, so you can leave your phone in your pocket, in your briefcase, or across the room. All of this is rolled up into a package that weighs less than .8 ounces.
Compatibility: Motorola A630, RAZR V3, V505, V551, V600 and V710 Phones, and all other Bluetooth 1.1 or 1.2 compliant devices.

For only $40 this headset is a best buy. I have no problems with the sound quality, volume, or people hearing me on the other end. It actual provides better sound clarity both ways then my cellphones built in speaker and mic. Set-up is no problem at all, and so far the battery hasn't run out on me (I charge it every night along with my cell). I heard a lot of people complain about the 850's volume output, but I dont have any problem with the 820. I use it with my Nokia 3650, and the ability to walk away from my cell phone is a huge advantage, considering I don't get cellular reception everywhere in my apartment. Now I can leave my phone in an area with good reception, and walk around the apartment with my bluetooth headset. Don't believe the "32.8 feet" range on the product description, that value is based on the bluetooth specification, which is really a maximum range assuming you have absolutely no interference at all (no walls or other wireless signals). However, I am able to walk about 20 feet through multiple walls without a problem. I basically get coverage everywhere in my apartment where I would possibly walk to (it gets a little staticy in my roommate's room, but it is still audible). The one thing that takes a little getting used to is controlling your basic functions using only one button. This is accomplished by holding the 'Multifunction Button' for different durations, and overall it works pretty well (once you remember what does what). However, I can't use this as a negative remark towards this headset, because basically all bluetooth headsets implement similar designs. An example of using the Multifuntion button: while connected, quickly pressing the button (a "short press") will answer or hang up a call, or activate voice dialing if there is no incoming call. Holding the button for about 2 seconds (a "long press") will redial my last number, or if your in a call, I believe it puts your current call on hold - however, I would rather not take the risk of hanging up and rather use my phone to activate hold or mute. The headset automatically connects to your phone when you turn it on (after initial pairing) which is really convenient. You can download a PDF of the manual from the motorola website so you get an idea of all the controls and commands you are able to pull of using the multifunction button. A definate pro is two volume buttons (increase/decrease) as oppossed to one, and the ability to switch ears with the headset and have the volume buttons work correctly in their orientation. The design look fine and is not very obtrusive and attention drawing.
(+) My favorite feature of this phone: Voice Dialing. With my Nokia 3650, I am able to program 20 voice tags to use with voice dialing (the quantity of voice dialing numbers and accuracy probably varies by phone model). However, eventhough my phone is not a motorola, the voice dialing (along with all the other features) works seamlessly with my phone. I love the ability to leave my phone somewhere else and call people using the voice dialing function. A great bonus while riding in the car.
(-) Only Negative --- The headset is rather light so it almost feels like it is going to fall off because the clip is not very tight, but rather just kind of rests on your ear. I guess this makes it more comfortable during long calls, but I kind of feel like it would fall off easily if I were to be running - although this hasn't happenned yet. Also, the blue light blinks every 3 seconds while not in call, which can get kind of annoying when in the car at night.
FINAL CONCLUSION: At $40 I don't see why there is any reason not to get this, it works fine and sounds great, so I don't see what other features another headset could offer to make it worth the price difference. I would have paid twice as much for this product and still been happy with my purchase.
P.S. Anyways, this is the first review I have written, so please click the feedback buttons (preferably the one that says 'yes') to let me know if this review was any help to you.
10/17/2012: For the record, although I haven't been using it as much, this headset still works and has worked with every phone I have bought since 2005.
The size/weight is so small as to be unnoticeable. I find the headset very comfortable for extended periods of time. Price-wise, it was the cheapest headset from a reputable brand when I bought it. Battery life is decent, probably 3+ days, although I tend to charge it about every two days. Great for driving or any time you want your hands free but can't use speakerphone.
People whom I call have complained occasionally about the sound quality. Range is not great, sometimes 10 ft causes annoying "I am about to disconnect" noise. Because there is only one main button that is used for everything, it is very easy to accidentally activate voice dialing, last-number redial, etc. Initial pairing with the phone was not intuitive at all: who knew you had to keep the button pressed while trying to pair up? Finally, the blinking blue light on you temple makes you look like a robot!
This is an OK first/small/cheap BT headset. If you talk a lot on the phone, look for something else. There must be headsets out there that provide better sound quality, longer range, and have more intuitive buttons and controls.
* very light-weight; I forget I'm wearing it sometimes
* inexpensive; I paid $10 more at the time, and it was worth it
* easy to wear (odd I know, but I've dealt with 3 or 4 bluetooth headsets and some of them are more trouble to put on the ear than they're worth)
* easy volume controls
* easy setup due to easy instructions
* the top end of the volume range could be a little louder (this is only an issue when I'm driving 60-70 mph on the highway; some cars are louder, some quieter ... don't say I didn't warn you ;)
* the on/off processes are a little cumbersome at first, but I'm used to it now, and it's not such a big deal
Bottom line, if you have a bluetooth-capable phone and would like to enjoy the freedom of "hands-free", this is a very good quality headset for the price!
And, you may not really *need* a wireless bluetooth headset because you can just use a wired one or use your speakerphone. But I admit that it's sort of cool to be totally wireless-you can put the phone in your pocket or purse and be totally unencumbered by wires, which feels a bit safer and freer, especially while driving or when you have to work with both hands and talk at the same time for example.
A note about the battery-do not store this unit (or your phone) in a hot car! Heat damages batteries and shortens their lifespan.
