The earlier generations of Bluetooth headphones were meant for one kind of active users–those on the go, career professionals who were constantly bustling around doing business. With the Motorola S9 Bluetooth Active Headphone, the word active expanded to include the physically active and the sports-active. Here’s how and why.
The popularity of Bluetooth headphones started to rise when their manufacturers enabled consumers to use wireless headsets in conjunction with mobile phones via Bluetooth technology. When mobile phone manufacturers began pushing for music-enabled cell phones, plus with the starting ubiquity of the multimedia players (particularly MP3 players and the iPod), the Bluetooth headset industry also started to adapt. The Motorola S9 Bluetooth Active Headphone is one such product, and quite a feature-filled one, too.
It is ideal for the sportsy and active lifestyle, for two main reasons: it is only 5.1 ounces and it is wireless. The Motorola S9’s sleek and lightweight design provides for comfortable binaural (i.e., having two earpieces, one for each ear) headphones conveniently shaped into a behind-the-head set. Plus, it is specifically made to be sweat- and water-resistant, thus making it the perfect choice for runners, joggers, sprinters, gym-goers, and other sports enthusiasts.
The earbuds and the shape of the slim connecting band not only gives it a stylish look but also provides for a design that is both less-distracting and less-conspicuous. The ear hooks are easy to slip on or off. With this kind of material and design, the Motorola S9 is surely a device you won’t mind wearing for long periods, way even beyond its normal play time (about 6 hours), talk time (about 7 hours), or idle time (about 150 hours).
Despite its very slim yet attractive looks, the solid stereo sound quality of the Motorola S9 doesn’t give an inch to low quality, regardless of the audio type or format. Though, several users have noted that the audio quality isn’t exactly for the exquisite tastes of seasoned audiophiles, the S9’s sound quality suffices for general usage. Voice calls are as clear and clean as its music, even in usage scenarios that necessitate environmental noise such as wind. The volume of either music or voice audio remains even and well-praised by most users. It will allow you uninterrupted music listening with its automatic music pausing features when a voice call comes in. The music eventually resumes when the call is terminated. It pairs quite easily and quickly with many compatible Bluetooth-powered devices.
In sum, as a one-of-its-kind slim and fashionable headset, the Motorola S9 Bluetooth Active Headphone can be considered ahead of the pack of Bluetooth headphones designed for the sports-minded individual.
