Cardo scala-600 headset
Cardo Systems has announced the scala-600, a small Bluetooth 1.2 headset with a substantial battery life. Though the headset weighs a mere 0.41 ounces, active talk time can reach up to 10 hours, and standby time is over 240 hours. The unit can pair with up to eight different devices and broadcast to a range of 33 feet. To recharge, users can use the bundled Travel Wall Charger or buy a separate USB charging cable. Cardo's BTA II adapter will let you use the 600 with non-Bluetooth phones. The headset is going to market now for $50 at US retailers.
