Customer Reviews

Sound quality, for me, is very good.
T. Simms
These work well as a phone headset, the sound is now present in both ears (the original S9's only worked in the left ear for phone calls).

I never thought I'd be someone to write such a bad review but here I am.

With the release of Apple's iPhone OS 3.0 I have found myself on the market for a pair of nice A2DP Bluetooth stereo headphones. I currently switch between a Jabra BT125 for wireless talk and Shure i2c-M earbuds for wired stereo music while walking/running.

With my iPhone 3G updated and finally able to support stereo BT streams, I found myself stuck with the choice of either the Motorola ROKR S9-HD wrap arounds or the JayBird 200i, which appear to be the two most widely distributed BT stereo setups available in my local big box marts. I wound up choosing the Motorolas, which I purchased from Target.

I chose poorly.

I will say, I am generally skeptical of tech product user reviews, and knowing the Motorola ROKR series BT stereo headphones (both the S9s and now these S9-HDs) have recieved so many mixed reviews across a number of different sites, I was left unconvinced either way, so went ahead and purchased them for myself to see if these were really as good, or as bad, as previous reviewers have made them out to be.

Unfortunately, the *bad* camp wins. I wound up returning my S9-HDs to Target the day after I purchased them, even in spite of some quite favorable first impressions.

I have owned a number of Motorola products over the past decade (Timeport and RAZR V3 cellphones chief among them -- in fact, prior to the iPhone I'd owned only Motorola brand cell phones for the previous eight years) and have a favorable overall impression of Motorola's products, build quality, and reliability. Because of this I purchased the S9-HDs with an open mind and presumed the headphones couldn't really be as poorly constructed and unreliable as other reviewers have written.

The battery is non-replaceable. This thing WOULD be prefect if it wasn't for the battery. The sound quality is great (call + music), the construction seems great, and it had a lot of neat features. I have contacted Motorola directly and they confirmed that the battery is not meant to be replaced--not even Motorola does it. The battery has a claimed lifespan of about 400 charge cycles (don't remember the exact number) but that means that if you plan to use your headphones daily, as I did, this particular model will only last you about a year before it will no longer hold a decent charge, and, if you are very unlucky, just a little after your 1 year warranty is up.

After doing some research, I have come across quite a few S9 (predecessor to this model) users who are already experiencing this. So what does that mean to S9-HD owners? Well, you basically have yourself a DISPOSBABLE, $90 set of headphones. I attempted to find a way to replace the battery myself but I eventually gave up. The rubber cushion (the one that goes all the way across the unit) must be removed to access the internals but it seems to be glued down with super glue or something, making it difficult to remove without damaging it. Even if you were able to take it apart, you would have to identify and source the tiny lithium battery, which would also be a very difficult feat since Motorola does not sell them. Finally, the actual replacement would most likely require some amount of soldering, which would prevent the average person from taking on such a task.

If you can live with buying a disposable set of headphones, I would definitely get this model. It sounds amazing and works flawlessly.

S9-HD/D650 Bundle with ipod Adapt
I bought this for my wife to use with her new iPhone 3G after Apple still has failed to implement Music Streaming on Bluetooth. The headphones and the adapter have given outstanding performance and consistency from both a music playing and phone perspective. I just wish the transmitter could be as small as the Sony. The Sony transmitter is about 1.3 smaller! But the performance and consistency of the motorola make it a better value.

As in the previous review that had instructions on how to pair this motorola with the iPhone 3G, I would follow a bit different, slightly simpler and less invasive approach than deleting all your pairings.

1. charge your headsets for the recommended 2 hours before use (they'll last longer and you'll thank me!)

2. Turn your iPhone's Bluetooth OFF (Settings/General/Bluetooth/OFF/ON slider)

3. Plug in the D65 Adapter that came with the headset (answer NO to the iPhone's message declaring that you just plugged in an incompatible device)

4. Go to the iPod mode on your iPhone 3G (it should be in pause mode now)

5. Put the Headset into pairing mode by: (when the headset is off, press the power button for 7 seconds, you should get a steady blue light)

6. On the iPhone 3G press the PLAY button.

7. Both the adapter and headset will go through a series of blinking lights (they are pairing) when they are done (about 15 - 20 seconds) your music should start to play automatically in the headsets!
