Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Stylish, light weight, bluetooth wireless stereo, decent audio quality
Cons:Will not play streaming music, volume level could be higher
The Bottom Line: Would recommend if you like playing music from media card and talking hands free. Would NOT if you wish to stream music.
I bought this headset to listen to music at the gym from my Sprint cell phone for hands-free phone calls. I have a Bluetooth compatible Samsung cell phone that has the option to play music from a media card and also stream music from the internet.

The S9 Motorola headset works great at playing music from my media card. It has a light touch controls for volume and for advancing forward and backward thru the tracks. If a call comes in, it interrupts you with a voice audio stating who the call is from. To answer, simply hit the phone button, the music is interrupted and youre in the call talking hands free (pretty cool). You do have to hit the play button again when the call ends to return to music. The audio is quite good and the headset is comfortable. Lots of people inquire about it.
The biggest issue is that the audio only works for phone calls and media card playback. It does not pickup any streaming audio from the internet or Sprint radio like a wired headset will do. This issue reluctantly forces me to return the unit and go with the wired headset. Other pitfalls it may interfere a bit if you wear glasses, the volume does not play load enough, and phone calls only play through the left side (not both).
