|Testing the Z9i and Final Thoughts|
There are hundreds, if not thousands of different Bluetooth headsets on the market today. A simple search over at eBay yields well over 9,000 results. Out of these 9000+, there are many duplicate models but there are lots of different units from companies I've never heard of. This market is very crowded and for a company to come up with something different is pretty challenging. Back in February 2008 we looked at the BlueAnt Z9 headset and were quite impressed - today we have the follow-up Z9i from BlueAnt and will find out if this model actually adds new features and maintains the quality of the Z9.
The list of features on this headset is pretty impressive. It has active noise isolation technology, dual mics and great talk and standby time. What even makes this more impressive is that it can pair with up to five devices. Many expensive headsets from the competition only connect with a couple of devices, and the Z9i takes this a step further for a budget price. In can only connect with two phones, but that should be enough for most people. It still leaves three other devices such as a PDA, Laptop and a Bluetooth enabled media player. All of the specs and features are useless if it doesn't work as advertised however. We paired this unit up with our laptop, a couple of phones and PDA and have given it a workout over the past few weeks, but before we get into the testing, let's find out a little more about BlueAnt.
