"Cool Design, but room for improvement"3.5 starson by JeffSanDiego
Pros: Sleek, comfortable, lightweight, simple to use
Cons: Phone calls are only heard in one ear, and battery life is poor!
Summary: I've been using the S9 headsets (bought 2 pairs, one for the gym, one for around the house) for a couple of weeks now. I love the sleek, lightweight design. They're also comfortable. However, I do have a couple of suggestions for Motorola to improve this product:
1. Phone calls are only heard in the left ear. I'm used to stereo phone calls (my Motorola HT820's have stereo phone sound). The main place I use this headset is at the gym, where background noise makes hearing phone calls thru one ear a challenge. Motorola, why didn't you make the phone sound stereo???
2. Battery Life could be better. I will fully charge my S9, then take it to the gym for about an hour or so of music listening, then turn it off and put it in my gymbag for listening the next time I workout (a day or two later). 50% of the time, the battery is completely dead, after only having been on for 60-90 minutes! This isn't good. To be fair, with continuous listening (ie. not turning it off and waiting a day or two), the battery seems to last a few hours. Motorola, another thing to improve!
3. Volume - I wish it would adjust slightly louder, again at the gym (with background noise), I would like to turn up my music a little louder.
Other than these 3 weak points, I'd have to say that these are the best Stereo Bluetooth Headsets I've tested so far! Motorola, I hope you're listening, make a great product even better!
