This year at CES, of the cutting-edge gadgets, functioning bluetooth stereo headsets made their first appearance. Motorola had their “Bluetooth Active Headphones S9” on display. The S9 is one of the first bluetooth headsets to function with any bluetooth device, that supports stereo profiles. The S9 is intended for music playback, however it also supports wireless voice calls. Also, unlike most other bulky wireless bluetooth headphones, these Motorola headphones are quite sleek, stylish, and light weight, weighing less than an ounce.
Active Headphones S9 Features:
- Crisp 1.3cm stereo speakers
- Compatible w/Bluetooth enabled devices
- Supports both phones and MP3 players
- Up to 6-hours of music playback
- Touch sensitive music & talk controls
The headphones have touch-sensitive talk/end controls on the left and play/pause controls on the right. Most initial reviews all seem to be giving the S9 a “thumbs up.” However if plan to purchase wireless headsets to use while driving, these are probably prohibited in most states since they cover both ears. In addition, they S9 headphones are quite pricey, current online retailers such as Amazon price it at $130. I’d recommend waiting for cheaper ones arrive since these are one of the first truly portable pairs.

I purchased the S9 In May of 2007. I had to return three units since that time. There is a problem with this line. I run six days a week using the S9, sound good, controls good. It claims water proof, sweat proof. I don’t think so. I would wait for an improved model.
Not sweat resistant. The volume knobs first started going down, then up, even after drying out. Finally, the left side phone use feature went out to. How long have I had them? Got them Monday, this is Friday. Returning them tomorrow, which is Saturday. I’ve since read lots of review of people having the exact same problem, not with one headset, but with three separate tries. Sorry, but this is ridiculous.
This is a nice headphone and i like this very much its cool.
Yup, I agree, not sweat resistant at all! I also do a lot of work outs and I purchased the S9 because it claimed to be sweat resistant. I was bummed and almost ready to go back to wired when I found the bluetooth wireless headphones from JayBird. They work really well and I highly recommend them! Also, they stay on so well and they are what they claim to be, Water and sweat resistant!
