-This is the first of the stereo bluetooth products that don't make you look like princess leah -- it is fairly discreet except for the flashing status light at the bottom center of back pod.
-Connects to my t-mobile dash and computer very well. I use it primarily on my 45 minute train commute and it does not cut out at all and the audio is very good in the train. A pleasant surprise is that I am able to have a clear conversation on phone calls on the train (mindfull of the other passengers, of course).
-Very convenient not having to go back and forth between mp3 player and phone when getting a call. Also, no wires to tangle from my old earbuds are a big plus.
-Not very comfortable for people with big heads. My head is fairly large and it takes some fiddling to find "the spot" but once there, no problem until you move it. It works for my purposes since I wear it less than 60 minutes at a time.
-I also warn people with a lot of volume of hair in the back of the head or people who wear high collar jackets because it may tend to pull when you move.
-One of the biggest annoyances with the s9 is that it is bulky. It feels solid and robust enough but it is bulky to store when you are not using it. It needs a hinge so that it can collapse to a manageable size. This alone would make me drop this another half star to 3 and 1/2.
-Paired with everything so far (phones, computer) except for Jensen BT Adapter. May be operator error but I can't figure it out.
I have not tested the battery strength -- I use five days a week for two hours a day and charge it about twice a week and have no problems.
Bottom line is it could be better but right now, it's the best stereo bluetooth headphones out there.
I am a runner and have used these headphones both on the treadmill in the gym as well as outdoors, including very windy conditions. I have not experienced any loss of signal once the bluetooth connection has been established--and I have run literally hundreds of miles with this unit. It is a real pleasure to listen to my ipod without wires dangling all over me.
Please note that the bluetooth connection between the headphones and the ipod does not take place instantly. Turn the headphones on and wait for the solid blue light to come on that indicates that the headphones are in bluetooth mode. Then (1) turn on the ipod, (2) insert the adaptor (Note: inserting the adaptor before turning on the ipod did not permit a bluetooth connection to be established), (3) select the first song, and (4) hit the play button on the ipod. There is usually a delay of 10-40 seconds before the headphones make a bluetooth connection with the ipod. Not a big deal. I just restart the song from the beginning.
Making a bluetooth connection with my Samsung u-740 cell phone was a snap, and answering calls on the headphones was easy. I had no problem with sound quality.Read more ›
My HT820s were far too big, and the gigantic blinking blue landing lights on the sides just screamed, "LOOK AT ME!" The S9, on the other hand, is small and discreet. There is only a fairly dim light underneath the battery compartment in the back that's hardly noticeable while on.
When I first tried them, they didn't sound too great. I remembered how my Sony FONtopias earbuds are very sensitive to positioning, so I tried the other earbuds included in the package. The difference in bass was immediately noticeable, and the sound in general improved 100%. I guess it probably depends on your ears as to which will work best for you, but, although a little big for my ears, the replacement mushroom-looking buds sound much better as far as bass is concerned.
Another thing regarding sound quality and reliability: it differs greatly by device and (for mobile devices) the software. The sound quality of the S9 when paired to my laptop is very good. When paired with my mobile, however, it's still good, but quality is noticeably diminished. The problem seems to rest in the fact that the A2DP stereo Bluetooth profile requires a great deal of CPU power that taxes the processor in most mobile devices. This is just something to keep in mind to manage expectations.
Of note, the S9 also pairs with up to 8 devices, which is awesome. It also uses a STANDARD mini-USB port for charging, which is another huge bonus for travelers. The unit will charge with most mini USB phone adapters, as well as with a standard mini USB cord plugged into most computers.
All in all, this is a great device, and, imho, the best out there right now.

Volume and call sides controls stopped working after 1 week. Volume is stuck at minimum. When they did work they were awesome, but now they might as well be a hairband.Published 10 months ago by Jonas Vilander
