I received a copy of the latest issue from http://tigerdirect.com and found a Motorola s9 bluetooth headphones that looked totally awesome!

Motorola s9

I really thought they were great in the picture, then I got them, and they really aren’t all that comfortable… but just the fact they are wireless is awesome….

it’s not that they are uncomfortable, but I don’t think i could ever really forget that i had them on… and thats kind of what i mean…

One of the biggest reasons I got these things were for a traveling venture, and i really was excited to have wireless… but I used it in combination with the bluetooth device for the ipod that sony makes… and

Sony TMR-BT8IP IPod BlueToothAdapterit may have been that device, that caused some of the intermittent issues i was having… for instance, when I was just sitting there listening in the airport, it would randomly cut out for a couple seconds, and then connect for 5 more minutes or so and do it again… I would also be driving in my car and had the IPod on my lap and it happened then as well… it was annoying as hell.  My second thought on them, is that I thought connecting them to the ipod was really easy… but then after trying to connect them to my phone, things just never seemed to be the same, and i would have to shut off my phones bluetooth to avoid issues…

so in this bluetooth crazy world, it all may have worked out if i didnt try to push the technology that hard, but i guess i need to get an iphone, but then that means i have to change phone services to ATT Wireless from Alltel… alltel has been great for me, so thats just a giant inconvenience… on top of that, I have the ipod nano, and the bluetooth makes the jacket disfunctional because of it’s shape, so now the jacket doesnt stay on, because in order to have the bluetooth, you have to have the bottom of the ipod free, and the jacket wraps around it…

So i needlessly don’t use the device, i tried to sell it on craigslist for 70$ and had somone offer me 50 bucks, and if you think about the time it takes to drive some where and meet someone vs. the rate you charge hourly for programming, it becomes easier just to keep it and write it off as a loss than it does trying to salvage anything out of it… maybe if i one day get an iphone i’ll use it again anyway… but probably not till then…

I ran into another guy on another flight that uses the device with a blackberry, and I told him about my issues before we took off, and asked for him to let me know if the device worked well in the air because mine crapped out… and his worked flawlessly… I CHANGED MY MINE ABOUT THE S9… the S9 is definitely worth the buy, but the ipod sony adapter blows… I wore the device and listened to music in my house just fine from my ipod, but the minute i got in my car it choked about every 5 seconds… my car caused something in the device to malfunction… i just bought my car so I’m not sure what whats causing the issue… but it had similar results in the airport as well as the airplane and car… it just sucked…
