Update: There is a new version of these headphones, the Motorola S10-HD. Click here to see them, or continue reading the full review below.
The S9-HD is one of Motorola’s first Bluetooth sports headphones. In addition to functioning as amazing wireless sports headphones they also double as a Bluetooth phone headset if desired.
On Ear Music Controls. If you check out some of the pictures below you’ll notice Motorola has made it extremely easy to control your music by utilizing on ear music controls.
Style. If you’re looking for a slick pair of workout headphones these definitely qualify.
Sound Quality. The treble and bass sounds are pretty amazing for sports headphones. These headphones definitely do sound right.
Versatility. Because these are a one frame unit there isn’t a lot of room for adjustment. The silicone earbuds are extremely comfortable, but once you have it in place that’s pretty much how it’s going to stay.
Track Skip + iPhone. If you’re looking to hook these Bluetooth headphones up to your iPhone you may be better off the the Motorola S10-HD. Why? Well, unfortunately the s9-HD track skip feature doesn’t work with the iPhone because of an Apple update.
Sweat Resistant. While these headphones may be slightly sweat resistant, they are not 100% sweat proof. So if you sweat a lot you may end up shorting a circuit and damaging one of the earbuds.
One of the first things that caught our eye about the Motorola S9-HD Bluetooth Sports Headphones was the look. As Motorola makes a push to become a leading manufacturer and designer of Bluetooth sports headphones they have always captured a very sleek and attractive design, something that can go a long way for those who want to do more with their headphones than just workout.
If you don’t want to miss a call during your workout these may be the perfect headphones for you. They have an auto answer feature that allows you to answer calls instantly which will stop any music you’re currently listening to. In addition you can call out using voice activated dialing, so you don’t even have to take your phone out of your pocket.
Overall these are a quality pair of Bluetooth sports headphones, though you may want to check out the Motorola S10-HD before purchasing, as they updated a lot of features.
