Here is what Motorola support told me:
- The HS810 Bluetooth headset has an active, folding boom. This means
that opening and closing the boom on the HS810 will activate/deactivate
the headset (answer/disconnect a call). The Motorola HS820 unit does not
offer this feature.
- The HS820 headset comes in grey, gloss black and teal colors (only the
teal color is available at the moment, other colors have not been
- The inside part that rests up against your ear on the Motorola HS810
is different than the HS820 Bluetooth piece which may or may not be more
comfortable depending on your preference.
- The HS820 headset supports both Bluetooth v1.1 and v1.2 (Bluetooth 1.2
devices are not expected to be available until sometime in 2005). The
HS810 Bluetooth headset only supports Bluetooth v1.1 .
- The Motorola HS810 comes with a carrying case and lanyard; however,
the HS820 does not.
- The HS820 Bluetooth headset weighs 0.01 ounces more than the HS820.
- With the HS820 Bluetooth unit you will be able to use the conference
call and voice dialing features. Those options are not currently
available on the Motorola HS810.
