Scala-500 Bluetooth Headset by Cardo Systems

>> Read Review (Rating 5/5) <<

Whether you are walking the sidewalks of a busy city, or biking or hiking on a windy day, you will appreciate our WindGuard solution: Cardo's proprietary wind blocking technology overcomes wind interference significantly better than any other BT headset on the market.

The scala-500 is engineered to serve as the perfect complement for your mobile phone, no matter where you are.

Sporting state-of-the-art functionality, up to 9 hours talk time and one week standby, this small and lightweight headset gives your hands the freedom to do what you want to do. The scala-500 brings you all advanced operational features you expect from a high-end headset. Its innovative patent pending technology includes the exchangeable ear loop, and easy to fasten eye/sunglasses clip along with Cardo's wind block technology. We also added a speaker booster to provide substantially higher volume capacity than otherwise available.

The sleek design and lightweight comfort of the scala-500 make it the best value in Bluetooth wireless headsets to support your active lifestyle.

  • WindGuard Technology for clear sounds under windy conditions
  • Up to 9 hours talk-time plus all high-end functions
  • VersaClip for dual wear option: Ear-Loop or Eye/Sunglasses attachment.

    one problem
    Fits well, great sound quality and wind resistance...only problem is after a few months of use, main button stopped functioning. Still, I'd recommend as it's not a very expensive headset that functioned better than most of the others I've tried.

    Tried many this is best so far
    I have had no trouble pairing to the treo 650. It does have some static when talking to people. This may be so because I had in swim trunks and went in pool for a second before I realized it. To my suprise it still works great and that was 2 months ago.

    Excellent value for money
    I was looking for a headset that would have given me a good balance of features and economy. The Cardo Scala 500 has lived up to and perhaps exceeded all customer reviews that I've read over time. Comfortable, pairs easily with my Treo 650, excellent sound quality in and out, and can be had at a great price if you shop around.

    Good Headset
    Comfortable, lightweight and easy to switch between ears. Used wiht a Treo 650. I did get a lot of static when the phone was clipped to my right hip (or in the cup holder of my car, between the front seats) with the headset on my right ear. Sound became clear if I put the phone in my hand or on the desk. While getting into my car, I dropped it. I accidentally ran over it & I found it the next day. The headset stayed there overnight in the rain. I was extremely impressesed that it kept working after it dried out. It lasted about 2-3 months after that incident when the "ear" piece fell off. Worked great outside on a semi-breezy day.

    Easy to pair better outdoor sound than most others
    I have been using the Cardo 500 for about 2 months, it is easy to pair with treo, lots of talk time, I charge it every nite,(no worries) mine came with a standard plugin charger (no cradle) noise cancellation is excellent,volune adjust a little akward (use Treo volume instead) Good Value easy to switch L/R
