I would avoid these like anthrax. I had two die on me in a span of 5 months.

I got these refurb from TigerDirect for 49.99. pretty good, occassionally choppy with motion, but whatever you do, don't get them wet. even a little sweat can mess these things up. seems to dry out and start working again but maybe I got lucky :-)

I seem to have bad luck with bluetooth stereo headsets.

been thinking about buying this S9 clone:

I think I will hold out a couple of months for newer models.
I went through 2 clones before I realized it's not as good as the original. I ended up getting a refurbed original(basically a new one) and it has been working flawlessly for the last 8 month. I use it mostly to listen to audio books and some music during workout. The battery lasts approximately 6 hours of constant use.

When not using it for A2DP/AVRC, but for telephony, it is not so good. During phone conversation, only the left side works for speaker because the right side becomes the "mike". People sometimes have difficulty hearing you and you have to speak a little louder than usual bluetooth monosets. People so look at you 'funny' because the headset is really low profile and sometimes they don't see it. Even if they do, they only probably perceive it as a stereo headset.

If you can get it for $55 or less, it is a great deal I think. Thanks OP. I might get another one for backup.
