The Good The Nokia BH-804 is a small and stylish headset that's easy to use and comfortable to wear. It comes with a charging dock, a neck strap, and different earbud covers. It also has good sound quality.

The Bad The Nokia BH-804's ear loop is not very flexible, and is cumbersome to attach. It's also rather pricey.

The Bottom Line The Nokia BH-804 is a great little headset if you're willing to pay the price.

Though Bluetooth headsets are more socially acceptable these days, many people still prefer a more discreet design to prevent the Borg-like look of traditional headsets. Nokia has made small, discreet headsets before, like the Nokia BH-800 , and it continues that trend with the tiny Nokia BH-804. Though not the most secure headset, it's comfortable enough, and the sound quality is decent. The Nokia BH-804 is quite expensive, though, at around $144 retail, but you can find it cheaper if you shop around.

The Nokia BH-804 is quite possibly the smallest Bluetooth headset we've ever seen. Measuring 1.65 inches long by 0.53 inch wide by 0.23 inch thick and weighing a very lightweight 0.25 ounce, the BH-804 is very inconspicuous when worn. Clad in aluminum gray and black, it has a sticklike rectangular design with a minimalist appeal. Right on the front is a square multifunction button, and a skinny volume rocker sits on the left side. The volume rocker is a little too thin for our tastes, but we got used to it eventually. At the top of the headset is a tiny tri-color LED indicator.
