The Blue Ant Z9i is a middle of the road headset. I haven't gotten any complaints about sound quality so I'd say it picks up my voice pretty well. It has a decent quality speaker so sound it good and it gets loud enough. My Jawbone Icon had better sound in and out but this isn't bad. The cons are that my unit came only with over the ear hooks and speaker rings that have no loops to hold the set in my ear. I've never found an ear hook that I like. I usually like the loops but got none. My unit was supposed to be new but didn't come in a Blue Ant box so I'm not sure if I just got shorted. The speaker ring is fairly grippy (for now) so it helps keep it in while moving around casually. This unit also doesn't support volume adjustment from my Blackberry. Haven't seen that in a while. Forget about A2DP. For $$$ bucks it's acceptable.
