“ Motorola MOTOROKR S9 - Headset ( behind-the-neck ) - wireless - Bluetooth 2.0 „
I got my motorola MOTOROKR S9 headset to pair ir with my, back then, new motorola Z3. Its price was around 35 pounds, and it was worth it completely since I had really cool sessions of sports with them and I loved the sound quality even if they are wireless using the Bluetooth 2.0 technology.
Mine is red and black and I use it mostly to exercise. I have never felt so comfortable without having to deal with annoying cables that get tangled all the time and distracting you of what you should be actually doing. And the greatness does not stop there, it has buttons on each side, on the right has some really good music controls including the play/pause, next and previous track buttons. On the left side it has the volume buttons and a button to answer calls in case you prefer pairing it with your mobile. So it means you won't lose any calls while you enjoy a bike session. Another excellent detail that the motorola people have take into account is isolating the exterior noises while you are in a call, so the person you are talking with, only listens to your voice. Several times I asked people if they can guess where I am, and they think I am in a room. The wind is absolutely not an issue when you talk to someone.
The battery is quite good lasting around 6 hours of music playback. It takes only 2 hours to charge so you can always have it ready for your training. It has a light on the back that tells you the battery state, letting you know when it is full, lighting blue, and if it is low it will light red.
The downside of this headset is that, due to the sports use, the sweat can ruin them. It happened to me and I started feeling how the sound quality decreased, having an annoying vibration noise associated with the bass. So I had to listen really quiet for it to disappear. Also I would recommend the people in motorola to design better the ear tip that goes into your ear, so that it cancels the exterior sound when you listen to your favourite tracks. I also have been having an issue with the buttons previously mentioned, for they will stop working properly and sometimes you cannot turn the volume up.
All in all I think the headset is a good device, and it will be perfect if they corrected those minor issues.
I bought a pair of these after I purchased an mp3 player that had Bluetooth connectivity as wanted to use them in the gym. I hate using wired headphones in the gym as the wire constantly pulls and gets caught and frankly I don't need anything to distract me and make me stop as let's face it I hate the gym! There isn't much weight to them so you hardly know that they are there and the main thing is they are really comfy to wear. They came with 2 different sizes of buds which is great as the standard ones never fit in my ears so the fact that these came with a smaller pair saved me from having to track some down. The buds have never come out of my ears or even slightly slipped whilst I am jogging. The controls are by the ear buds and are really easy to use, the usual volume control and skip controls. I pair a Samsung p2 together with these headphones but a phone or iPod with Bluetooth connectivity does the same job. As soon as you turn them on they pair straight away with my mp3 player.
I was really surprised with the sound quality of these headphones as it sounds fantastic, I've never had sound quality that sounded this clear and crisp out of a pair of headphones before.
The headphones use a tiny usb port to recharge through the main adapter or your pc, you can't use them whilst your charging but it would defeat the object of them being wireless if you wanted to. If you're a very active person these headphones are perfect.
If you are active, for example, ride a bicycle, then this bluetooth headset is ideal. The ear bud ends sit comfortably in the ears, I've never had them come out. Most of the (negligible) weight rests on your ears and then hangs down around the back of your neck.
I use it to listen to mp3s of music and my language lessons while riding my mountain bike over roughish terrain. It sits comfortably under the bike helmet at the rear, the helmet's straps fit over my ears but I can still reach the headset's controls which are near the ear buds. This is fantastic.
Much better than with cables and fiddely ear buds! I put the mp3 player/phone in a back pocket of my cycling shirt maximising bluetooth reception (bluetooth don't broadcast too far)
It connects well to my Palm Treo 650 using a programe called Audio Gateway as the 650 only supports phone headset capabilities on bluetooth out of the box and this is not a stero service. I usually have the phone off while I'm riding so I've not check it out as a phone headset so much as a music in the ear piece. Works well in the car too.
Uses a mini USB port to recharge the battery. I am really glad all phone manufacturer are moving over to this one charger fits all model. It cannot be used while actually charging however (but then you might as well have a cabled headset).
This is such a cool headset. My boyfriend bought one at the weekend and it is well worth the £39.95 from Blue Unplugged.com and only took a few days to arrive.
It combines a hands free kit and wireless music player. It is light weight so does not feel heavy and fits comfortably into your ears. The controls for volume, changing music tracks, pausing and answering a call are on the left and right sides of the headset with the off button and charging port at the back. The controls are easy to use - just a click just behind your ear, and safe while driving as no fiddling around is required. The sound quality is very good just like an MP3 Player and when calling someone it is very clear for the wearer and for the person you are calling. It is good for when driving as it is loud enough but does not block out all traffic sound.
I would definitely recommend this product for people that regularly commute, need to keep connected and want to have a boogie on the way!
MOTOROKR S9 seamlessly integrates wireless mobile music and calls. A mobile phone with the Bluetooth Stereo Profile (A2DP) or Bluetooth Adapter for iPod is required for stereo listening. Combining behind-the-head wearing style with innovative music and call controls, the MOTOROKR S9 is a must have for anyone who leads an active lifestyle and loves their music.
