let me know if anyone has these headsets!!! I would like to know your opinons
I bought both so to try them out and I did not like the 820. For one thing is that on the 810 to turn it off you just flip the mic to the closed position. on the 820 you have to hold the button for 3 seconds and to turn it on you have to hold it for 3 seconds. The 810 is much faster on and off, gives great voice quality. Looks great and comes with the carrying pouch. The 810 also is rated at 8 hours talktime, 100 hours standby and the 820 is 5 hours talk time and 100 hrs standby. Also with the 820 in order to answer a call in time you have to leave it in standby which also keeps the V710 bluetooth active which eats the battery. With the 810 you flip the mic open and it turns on so there is no need to keep it in the standby mode so in turn your phone blue tooth is only active when you are in a call. I am taking the 820 back tomorow.
I've been using the HS820 for just over a day (on a single recharge), and I often forget that I'm wearing it. For long car rides, scooter rides (CT has no helmet law, although the combination of chatting on a cellphone AND not wearing a helmet, even if hands-free is probably inviting disaster!), and just around the house, it's fantastic. One thing I like is that while I'm wearing it, I can enjoy the music in my car, whereas past headsets tended to block the sound in one ear, which bothers me.
I agree with the earlier post that the turn on and off button is not great (flipping the boom on the 810 is easier, but the 820 feels smaller than the 810, so when I slip it in a pocket between uses, it's tiny.
Sound quality is great--a number of people I called and spoke with from a number of quiet and noisy environments couldn't tell I was on a headset.
Finally, on the issue of talk time, I suspect that the v710's batteries will expire long before the headset... 6 hours for hands free works for me.
I picked my V710 up this morning with an HS820 headset. I wanted to stay Moto and leaned towards the smaller device. So far so good. I used it a ton today and the sound quality was very good. I did not loose connection to the phone either.
I got the 820 with the V710 on Friday. I have no problems with range and battery life, it's tiny, I love the size.
ONE PROBLEM though: When the 820 is active, the phone does NOT ring at all. Which means that you are forced to wear the 820 the whole time otherwise you won't know you have an incoming call. The alternative would be to turn the 820 off, when the phone rings, hold the button for 3 secs then use it (and pray the call didn't hangup)
