Default Motorola S9 stereo headset

Please Login to Remove!

Just tried em out with the 8300. Had no problems sounds great. Left device on first floor and walked upstairs ( about 50ft away) and had no issues. Full control of song advancement, volume, and voice command feature. Will be a great feature for the gym etc.


Rate them 9 (1/10 scale)

They look great and are very low profile; you can hardly tell you are wearing anything at all. They do become somewhat uncomfortable after half hour or so. They suit my purpose fine as I only use them for short bursts.

We actually have two Curve's and two S9s and both work great, even sitting right next to each other. Think last forever and sounds great!

I tried the S9 with my Curve for a week. The profile was great, though they are a bit bulky for travel. Folding would be better. Pairing was easy and sound was good except for a slight hissing sound on MP3's. the biggest draw back and why I returned them was comfort. After about 30min or so, these things hurt like hell, both where they pinched my head and in the ears.

I continue my search for a good, small, stereo bluetooth headset. Next up will be the Jabra BT8010.

They do come a little tight, but a quick pull and you can stretch them out so they are not so tight on your head and they fit rather nicely then.

Good sound. Range seems to be good, but depending on where I am it will 'skip' on occasion. Wish the configuration was a bit differen as the hump in the back is what keeps them from fitting in my motorcycle helmet. I also don't like that the phone calls come over the left ear. I have gotten accustomed to using my headsets in the right ear and this is throwing me off a bit. Still the best of the stereo bt headsets I have tried. Keepers for sure. If anyone has had any success with using a particular headset in a helmet let me know. The ones on the market made for helmets thusfar are extremely dissappointing and HUGE.

How's the sound? I am looking for a pair to use everyday, whether it's on the way to work or out riding my bike. I'm a bit of an audiophile (spelled right?), so the sound has to be pretty good for me to buy them. I dont want to hear anything like the sound that comes out of iPod headphones, or even a bit better.

I have a pair and they work great. I use them at the gym and on the bike, never have a problem. All the controls work, ff/repeat. I can answer calls with them w/out difficulty. I really havent found a problem with the headset

Just picked the S9 to use with my Curve and it's great but if I put the curve in my pocket the music skips on the headset. As long as there is line of sight between the two, it works perfect. I tried to use it as a BT headset on my computer (Mac) and the sound was terrible.
