Motorola S9-HD Headset (Black)

Motorola MotoROKR S9-HD

 

Stereo Bluetooth headsets evoke mixed emotions among tech enthusiasts. Given how easily cords tangle up, just about anyone with a portable MP3 player or cell-phone music app would kill for a good-sounding set of wireless earbuds. On the other hand, the...

Full, detailed sound with good mid-bass response. Lightweight. More comfortable to wear than true in-ear designs. Bundled iPod adapter is slim and adds extra value

Overly bright treble. Coarse volume adjustment. Floating headband design can get in the way

Motorola's well-designed and affordable S9-HD may finally give stereo Bluetooth headsets a good nameeven when it comes to sound quality.

MOTOROKR S9-HD Stereo Bluetooth: Sound vs Comfort

 

Ironically as I got my friend Jeff to buy an iPad so he could essentially have a digital magazine device he suckered me into me into a purchase of my own. As we passed the bluetooth headsets, he remarked about the MOTOROKR S9-HD that he had and how he...

Motorola MOTOROKR S9-HD Bluetooth Stereo Headset - Mobile Tech Review

 

Though the form factor looks largely unchanged from the last generation S9 headset, the S9-HD is slightly lighter and it feels more balanced. Weighing 1.12 ounces (32 grams), the S9-HD Bluetooth headset still has the behind-the-head active form but...

Better design than the last gen S9. The headset stays on better and the buttons are easier to find and press. Audio quality is quite good and bass is powerful. Pairing is smooth and can pair with 2 phones simultaneously. Lightweight and easy to carry...

The audio needs a little bit more tweaking as it noticeably favors the right channel. Voice call quality isn't very good.

Review: Motorola S9-HD stereo Bluetooth headphones review

 

If you are looking into getting a pair of Bluetooth wireless stereo headphones for your new phone, Motorola's S9-HD is something to consider. Ricky tests them out for us in this review.

As more and more cell phones support A2DP for stereo Bluetooth headsets, I'm glad to see Motorola attempting to streamline and stylize these headsets into something that you wouldn't be embarrassed to sport in public.
