"Best headset I've tried to date"4.5 starson by tech-man--2008
Pros: Design/Noise Cancelling/Comfortable fit
Cons: Would have liked standard mini usb charger
Summary: I have tried 5 or 6 headsets over the last 12 months including the Samsung wep200, the Jawbone and the Blueant x3. The wep 200 is a great looking headset but it didn't live up to expectation during use. The Jawbone worked the best but it was rather large and quite uncomfortable. The x3 didn't have any noise cancellation but it worked and fitted well so I thought I'd give Blueant another shot especially after seeing their fancy product video explaining the noise cancelling in the z9. It arrived on Tuesday and I've been busy testing it over the last few days. At first looks, the z9 is a great looking headset. It is very small and lightweight but would it perform? Blueant has included two noise cancelling settings in the z9. When using it with my Pearl on busy streets, in cafe's and even at home with screeming kids around and in the max mode it does exactly what Blueant claim. The people I spoke with could hardly hear any background noise and at my end, there was more than enough volume. The sound quality is also very good. You can pair the z9 with more than 1 device and switch on the fly so I also paired it with my iPhone and it worked equally well. I would have liked to see a mini usb charger (to go with my Pearl) however the usb charger is compact enough for traveling.
The z9 exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend it.
