Is anyone using the Cardo Scala 500 bluetooth headset?

If so, please share the pros and cons you've encountered with it so far. A friend of mine has one for her Razr and loves it, but I'm not sure whether it's compatible with the Samsung A950 or not. I had considered purchasing the Jabra BT350, but Jabra's compatability chart states that it's not compatible with the A950.

Any comments/suggestions of alternate bluetooth headsets would be appreciated🙂

It's kind of a mixed boat on the SCALA. Seems like those who have used it either REALLY like it or REALLY hate it. I am one that REALLY hates it. Worst I have ever used. Didn't stay connected, extreme static and voice cut-out. Some really good ones are:
Plantronics Discovery 640 (best, IMO)
Motorola H500
Jabra BT250, BT500
The Jabra BT350 WILL work with the 950.

I am using the Plantronics 320, which is the BlueTooth Headset that Verizon had offered as a free incentive with the a950 around Thanksgiving. I figured that it had to be compatible if they were combining it with an a950 purchase. It retails for $59 and can be had for much less on-line at some non-Verizon cell phone accessory sites. It works great as long as it is worn on the same side of your body as your phone is carried. No static and no echo. If you need it to work at a great distance from your phone, I wouldn't recommend it. Beyond about 10 feet there seems to be some static. The nice thing about this headset is that it is very comfortable to wear. Battery life is 240 hours on standby between charges and 10 hours if you are...
