Sound Signature

Sound Staging & Imaging
Sound Staging and Imaging refers to the ability of a pair of headphones to create the placement of instruments and vocalists in a recording. A small sound stage is very difficult to determine where the instruments are in relation to the vocalists, everything sounds like it's coming from the same place. An extra large sound stage separates the instruments and vocalists so that you can clearly tell where each is on the sound stage.
Refers to how clear the headphones audio reproduction is.
Refers to the quality of a music note that distinguishes different types of sound production (voices, musical instruments, etc.).
Refers to the bass performance of the headphones. Rated from Light bass to extreme bass.
Bass Detail
How accurately a headphone can reproduce bass notes; a culmination of attack, speed, decay and clarity. Attack is how precisely it can begin a bass note without delay. Speed is the ability to continue to attack an array of bass notes without lagging. Decay is the length of time after a bass note ends that the sound is still heard. Clarity is how easily all bass frequencies are heard. It gives perception of loose, tight, or muddy bass.

Headphone Design

Headphone Type

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

Specifically For
Some headphones can use an IR Transmitter in your vehicle, while some can be plugged into your media device and be used on the go or at home.
Acoustic Principle

The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types:

Open: Have ports that allow air through the back of the diaphragms, enabling the headphones to sound like the music is coming from an outside source.

Closed: Completely sealed and have no air passing through the diaphragms. Sounds like you are in a closed off room.

Semi-open: Have slots or ports in the back of the cup and are partially open. This allows for a mixed sound between an open and closed headphone.

General Features

Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
Device Controls & Compatibility
Refers to the devices the in-line controls are compatible with.
Smartphone/Tablet App Available
These headphones have a companion app available from the manufacturer. These apps are generally available on both the Google Play Store and iTunes for Android and iPhone use. They usually include an equalizer and other controls to give you complete control over your music.
This means the sound of these headphones can be customized to your listening preference through either an app or on-board controls.
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Bluetooth means that the audio signal is transmitted from your device to the headphones via a Bluetooth connection.

Corded or Bluetooth means that the headphones can be used as corded headphones or as Bluetooth headphones. They have an input in one or both earcups for use as a corded headphone while they also have a built-in battery for use as Bluetooth wireless headphones.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

Bluetooth Wireless
Volume Adjustment

Audio Features

Driver Type

The physical design of the driver in the headphones.

Balanced Armature:
A balanced armature driver uses a coil wrapped around an armature which is held in between two magnets until it is stimulated by an electrical current. When stimulated, this armature is magnetized which causes it to rotate one way or the other around a pivot point which moves the diaphragm to create sound. Balanced armature driver headphones are generally earbuds and can have multiple drivers in each earbud.

Dynamic drivers are the most common driver type. They feature a permanent magnet, usually neodymium, a voice coil and a conical diaphragm to drive your music. A dynamic headphone driver looks pretty much identical to any typical home theater speaker.

Electrostatic drivers are made up of an extremely thin membrane, usually a coated PET film, stretched between two metal plates. An electrical signal is applied to the metal plates to create an electrical field which, depending on its polarity, draws the speaker diaphragm toward one of the plates which forces air through the perforations in the diaphragm which generates the sound wave.

Planar Magnetic:
A planar magnetic driver is made up of a large membrane suspended between two sets of oppositely aligned magnets. An electric charge is applied to the membrane to induce movement and produce sound waves.

Driver Size
This refers to the diameter of the driver (speaker) on each side of the headphone.
Power Output
Refers to the power output rating (in watts) of the headphones.
Audiophile headphones represent some of the finest headphones available. Audiophile headphones produce genuinely outstanding sound quality as well as extraordinary build quality, components and comfort. They are truly the finest headphones available.
Built-in Amplifier
This refers to whether the headphones have an amplifier built-in.
Amplifier Recommended
This refers to whether a separate headphone amplifier is recommended for use with a specific pair of headphones. It is highly recommended that any headphone with an impedance greater than 100 ohms be amplified.
Pass Throughs
Refers to whether a pair of headphones has an output to connect to another pair of headphones.

Great sound

May 19, 2010

I use this headset when I work out. It syncs up well with my Droid. I don't have to worry about wires hanging and getting tangled up. I can listen to my favorite songs or internet radio and still take a call on the same headset. Battery life is good and charges up quickly.

Awesome headset!

July 22, 2012

This headset fits very nicely in the ear and around the ear with no pressure on the head. I can't wear regular headsets because my head is extremely sensitive to any pressure. This set is wonderful! Sound is amazing and the bluetooth allows it to be used in the gym, the grocery store or anywhere else you need your mobility free. I highly recommend the product!

Motorokr S9 is...well...OK, I guess

August 6, 2012

The S9 was a real pain in the neck to get connected to my laptop. It did connect easily to my Blackberry, and the sound quality is good. However it doesn't like the connection to my Thinkpad; I only get good sound quality on the first connection with each restart of my computer. Not sure this is the S9's fault. The battery life isn't that great - seems to be maybe 3 hours.

s-9 hd headset(bluetooth)

May 10, 2012

After 3 months of operation, unit had to be returned to motorola as it would not sync. They replaced with a S-10 HD which I was not happy about. In addition, the 1 year warranty on the replacement started when I bought the S-9 from Sonic, not from the date of replacement. Pretty cheap. I purposely bought the S-9 in the first place due to reviews I read stating the S-10 sound was not as good. I agree. This has nothing to do with Sonic. My experience with them as a retailer was excellent.

December 13, 2011

I love this thing. Every time i go work out i take it with me. It never fails. There is no static. I keep my phone in my front pocket. I have a blackberry and it works great with the music player that came with my phone. I love that it will raise and lower the volume and skip tracks and pause. It also answers calls all from these headsets. And the call quality is good according to the people that call me. It can get really loud 2 if u want it to. I do a lot of running and i never have to adjust it or anything. So comfortable and convenient i still can not believe i only paid 50 dollars!!! Got to love Sonic! Thanks!!!
