The MOTOROKR S9-HD Wireless Stereo headphones sound pretty darn good and plenty loud. We tested them with several Bluetooth handsets and were impressed with the range as well as the quality. The headphones are the in-ear type and are fairly comfortable for short periods of use.
These would not be our preferred headphones when it comes to comfort. We don’t care for in-ear headphones unless their custom made. However, if you’re the type that finds in-ear phones comfortable you may find yourself quite impressed with the S9s.
Cords are no fun, especially when working out. Of course, a decent set of corded phones is less than $20. The MOTOROKR S9-HD headphones are about 5x the price and that’s a pretty steep premium to pay, not to mention you now have to worry about charging your MP3 player or cell phone and your headphones. The first time you’re at the gym and your headphone battery conks out you’ll be reaching for the corded phones sans battery.
That being said, we still love the design of the S9s. It’s an impressive amount of technology packed into a sturdy and well designed accessory. This is one of the first times we’ve really taken Bluetooth seriously when it comes to high fidelity audio.
We can’t wait to see how this lineup evolves and how long it will be before we can get this kind of performance in a $29.99 SKU. Until then, if you got the cash check out the MOTOROKR S9-HD headphones and see if you find them comfortable. It’s the next step in a truly cordless world.
