    Can you tell me step by step how to adjust volume in MP3 in phone , all of my music is in MP3 format, I don't know how to put it into arm or qcp format.


  • cleanrick Dec 27, 2007

    thanks for the reply, but it did not work. I paired it with my phone twice, the only difference is that i could actually hear the button tones through the s9 in mp3 mode but still, the music comes out of the phone speakers, not the s9.

  • cleanrick Dec 27, 2007

    Maybe i am not understanding "pairing" the headphones to my phone, could you tell me how that is done exactly?

Did you pair the S9 twice to your phone?

    I am asking this, because the S9 needs to be paired twice in order to use A2DP. The first time you pair it, it will always be paired as a regular sound headset (for calls). The second time you pair it, it will be paired as a stereo music device (A2DP).

    Also, there is no need to convert files to another format as long your phone actually plays it regardless how it's outputted (wired headset, built in speaker or A2DP). As long as the phone plays it, it can be wirelessly streamed to any stereo bluetooth device (the device just needs to be paired as a bluetooth stereo device).

    Here are the pairing instructions for the S9 from Motorola. There is no need for you to convert anything as your phone supports mp3 files (as long as it's bitrate is not too high).

    Before you can use your S9, you must pair (link) it with your Bluetooth-enabled phone and/or music devices.
    "Pairing" links devices equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology and allows a previously linked device to remember your S9. Once devices are paired, they automatically connect when turned on and within range.

    Important: Because the S9 can stream music in stereo in addition to supporting phone calls, most phones will require that you pair the S9 as BOTH a stereo headset, and as a handsfree phone device. If you fail to connect the S9 as either device you will have limited functionality.

    First Time Use
    When using your S9 for the first time, follow these steps to pair (connect) to your Bluetooth device(s):

    Important: If you are pairing separate Bluetooth devices for handsfree calls and streaming music, it is recommended that you pair your S9 with your handsfree device (phone) first.

    1. Ensure the Bluetooth feature is enabled (turned on) in your device. (Refer to your phone or music device manual for detailed instructions on enabling Bluetooth).

    2. Turn on your S9 by pressing and holding button until the indicator light flashes three times in blue. After a few moments, the indicator light will be steadily lit in blue to indicate your S9 is in pairing mode.

    3. From your device, perform a Bluetooth device discovery/search. (Refer to your phone or music device manual for detailed instructions on accessing Bluetooth and searching for discoverable devices).

    When pairing your S9 with a Motorola phone, use the following steps to perform a device discovery from your phone:

    After accessing Bluetooth on your phone:

    1. Select Look for Devices. The phone lists Bluetooth devices it finds.

    2. Select Motorola S9.

    3. Select OK or Yes to pair your S9 with your phone.
      As noted above, you may also be asked if you want to pair your S9 as a stereo headset. Select OK or Yes for that option as well.

    4. Enter the passkey: 0000.

    5. Select OK.

    When your S9 successfully pairs and connects to your device, the indicator light displays blue with 10 quick purple flashes. If wearing your S9, you will also hear an audio tone indicating successful pairing and connection to your device.

  • dewan nafees ahmed Dec 25, 2007

    but try both arm and qcp formats

  • dewan nafees ahmed Dec 26, 2007

    good question.
    brother my first comment was not correct one. its not volume settings in MP3. but after going trough lots and lots of forums i came to know that its not due to mp3 settings but problem you have is a drwa back from motorola company itself. so my latest solutions will really help you my friend.

    now i wil say you how to convert your mp3 to amr and qcp formats.
    first i shall let you know that these amr and qcp formats are noting but formats of your ring tones. by converting the mp3 into these formats will not only let you listen to mp3 when u want but u can even set these mp3 songs as your ring tones and enjoy.
    go to this above site.. there you will find step by step procedure for converting them. but one drawback is the software avilable at this site is a trial one. so u will have to purchase it. sorry to say that.
    dont worry i wont let you suffer that way. i will download a full software and give you but before that you must pormise me that you wont give it to your friends and put me into trouble. if you are alone going to use it means i shall give you that full version.

    waiting for your reply. if u say OK means i shall upload it and give you the download link

  • dewan nafees ahmed Dec 26, 2007
    this s that link where you can learn converting it step by step

  • dewan nafees ahmed Dec 26, 2007

    you have come here to have a solution right. so i shall better provide you with the link that i said i will give you. i downloaded it from torrentz
    after downloading u will have one file named MP3 To Ringtone Gold 3.50 + Serial.exe
    now double click it.
    it will extract in the same folder where u have the original file.
    now open the folder. u will have tow files inside it.
    one is gold350.exe. this is the main installation file. once you double click it you will be guided trough the installation.
    after finishing the installation it will ask to launch the program.
    so start that program. now go to the folder where you have another text file named Serial.txt.
    it will contain the name and serial number with which you can register the product. this is illegal only. if u wish to get it legally you will have to spend some bugs out of your pocket.
    so now in that software there will be a icon named register in right side of window. click it. it shall ask for name and serial number.
    now copy those info from that text file and paste it.
    it will ask to close th software and start once again. do it.
    now after opening you wont find register icon there. it means u have got full version.
    now enjoy converting and after all this dont forget what you need to give me. lols :)

  • dewan nafees ahmed Dec 27, 2007

    did u try my solution?? i gave that solution after reading few forums regarding moto phones. they were saying uts some internal defect with it. and so the solution was to convert and hear the songs.

    i hope this solution will surely work. try and say it to me

  • dewan nafees ahmed Dec 28, 2007

    but one advantage is there. by converting u can use the mp3 as your ringtones also right?
    it will really look nice.
    if the pairing works please dont get cruel on me by rating in-appropriate. i tried my best. thanks

Is motorokq motorola S9 headphone compatible in MOTOROLA DEFY?... hope to hear a reply tnx! -lui

Yes, it is fully compatible, I.e. both phone calls and stereo music streaming work. By the way, AVRCP (removte control, as play/pause/next/prev) also works.
Hope it is the type of information you are looking for.
Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you any further.
Regards, Carlos

Can Not Stream Music on S 9

Motorola S9 headset plays music in one ear

I had the same problem with a Samsung phone. There are two ways of fixing this; First, you can remove the S9 profile from your phone's bluetooth list, and then add it again, going through pairing and entering 0000 on your phone when asked for the code.
Alternatively, you might try pressing the "play" button on the right earpiece on the Motorola S9. This is supposed to kick it into the A2DP stereo mode for music listening.
Good luck.
And get a copy of the manual from the Motorola web site at I found this very handy for checking what the little flashing lights mean. When you get stereo reception, the little LED in the middle of the headset flashes green, not the usual blue and red and purple for voice calls. 
In case you didn't know, as a phone headset, with the microphone activated, you only get sound in your left ear, and the light flashes blue. For music, you get both ears, and it flashes green. So if it ain't green, you are in mono mode.

Music won't play on my bluetooth headphones.

If your handset does not support stereo music on blue tooth headset, then you can not hear music on blue tooth head set. However you are able to answer and make calls through blue tooth headset.

Setting up phone to s9 headset.

I bought the same headset and also have a K1m, I did research and found out that the k1m does not have a2dp technology so it will not play music on any bluetooth stereo headset, in order to listen to music through a headset you will have to get the handsfree wired stereo headset, bummer
