BlueAnt Z9i Bluetooth Headset

 

This headset can pair with up to five devices, but its noise-canceling performance isn't the best.

Sturdy fit ; Easy to pair ; Works with up to 5 devices

Mediocre noise-canceling performance

There’s no doubt that the BlueAnt Z9i delivers clearer sound in noisy environments than a run-of-the-mill headset. But compared with premium noise-canceling headsets, including the Aliph Jawbone (street-priced at about There’s no doubt that the BlueAnt...

Blueant Z9i Bluetooth Headset (Black)

 

One of BlueAnt's most popular Bluetooth headsets last year was the BlueAnt Z9 , which we rated highly as having excellent sound quality, and many of you agreed. But BlueAnt wasn't happy just resting on its laurels; indeed, it has come up with an...

The BlueAnt Z9i is a stylish Bluetooth headset that's comfortable to wear and easy to use. It also has noise-suppression and voice-isolation technologies that further enhance the sound quality.

The BlueAnt Z9i still suffers from rather stiff volume controls, and it doesn't feel as secure without the ear hook.

The BlueAnt Z9i is a clear upgrade from the Z9, with better comfort, better sound quality, and an affordable price point.

Blueant Z9i

 

The plastic Z9i measures 1.6 by 0.7 by 0.4 inches and weighs just under 0.4 ounce. Unlike most Bluetooth headsets, the Z9i includes two large, easy-to-press volume buttons, as well as a clearly labeled multifunction button. The unit comes with two...

Clear sound quality. Stylish. Comfortable fit. Large, easy-to-press controls

Battery life is on the short side. Noise cancellation falls behind the class leaders

BlueAnt's Z9i is a stylish, comfortable Bluetooth headset with crystal-clear sound quality, although its noise suppression isn't quite as effective as it could be.

Review: BlueAnt Z9i Bluetooth Headset

 

Available in either glossy black or soft-touch red (ours was the former), the Z9i is truly small and light. At an inch-and-a-half in length and .35 ounces, it can be easy to forget you're wearing the Z9i. Controls on the Z9i consist of a large...

The Z91's battery is rated for up to 5.5 hours of yapping and up to 200 hours on standby, and it comes with both an AC adapter and a special USB cable so you can juice up the headset from a PC. BlueAnt says that cable can also be used to update the...

Read BlueAnt z9i Bluetooth Headset

 

I have had mixed results with Bluetooth headsets. My biggest complaint has always been that the microphones picked up all but the quietest of background noises. The z9i from BlueAnt claims to reduce the amount of background noise that is transmitted....

Good background noise canceling ; Includes two different sized ear buds ; Comfortable to wear ; Lightweight ; Compact ; Built-in clip for attaching to clothing when not being used ; Upgradable firmware ; Well documented upgrade procedure

Sounds grainy in silent settings ; Complicated firmware upgrade process ; Firmware upgrade instructions only for Windows XP

I was pleasantly surprised with the BlueAnt z9i. While the Voice Isolation technology did not completely filter out background noise, it did greatly reduce the amount of background noise transmitted. The z9i is also easy to use, light weight,...

Review: Review of the BlueAnt Z9i Bluetooth headset

 

The BlueAnt Z9i is an update of the company's Z9 Bluetooth headset that we liked so much back in February. Ricky tests out this new model to see what's been improved.

Clad in shiny piano black, with a large LED notification light and comfortable ear gels, the BlueAnt Z9i is a definite winner in my book. The headset is lightweight, small, and stylish, with great battery life and an excellent dual microphone setup for...

Review: BlueAnt Z9i Bluetooth Headset

 

With new laws in some states outlawing the use of cell phones while driving, many people have been flocking to consumer electronics stores to purchase some type of handsfree cell phone headset in order to avoid being pulled over by law enforcement and...

I would recommend this extremely lightweight Z9i to anyone and everyone. Even if your particular state still allows cell phone use in the car, using the Z9i makes you look cool and may end up saving your life

BlueAnt Z9i Bluetooth Headset Review

 

In the case of Bluetooth headsets, too small is never a bad thing. The BlueAnt Z9i Blueooth headset is the perfect mix of size, weight and comfort. But those attributes are nothing without sound quality, volume and connectivity. So how does the Z9i...
