Question about Headsets
I have the fix for the fouled and broken Motorola S9 control buttons. When you get your replacement or first pair and before you work out (sweat) with them for the first time do the following. Buy some extra hold hair spray, look at the ingredients and choose one that doesn't have water as the first ingredient and one that DOES include the word vinyl. I bought a can at the 99 cent store for 99 cents. I applied 3 coats to my headset allowing each to dry for 5 or 10 minutes. I took the rubber ear buds off for my first two coats. I was careful not to spray directly into the holes where the sound actually comes out. I worked out for 1.5 hours and was absolutely dripping, the controls functioned well throughout and post workout. I will continue to apply another coat before each workout. Hope this helps.

Whenever I workout, I sweat from head to toe, and have the same issue, track changing on their own, volume adjusts to minimum by its self. Once this occurs, you can't "re-adjust" the volume, (until they dry out). Other controls don't seem to work either, (pause, forward / reverse tracks). Bottom line, if you workout, if you are like 99% of humans, you will sweat, and if you do, the same thing will happen. I am on my 2nd pair, about to be on my 3rd. Sadly, Motorola was way off when they said these were sweat and water resistant!

SOURCE: The volume control on my
Motorola Headset S9 Control Keys Prob.
i am using motorola S9 for last one year.
I had the same problem of controls keys which i have corrected of my own.
Most of the sites i read say's this problem is due to the moisture.
Let me tell its not because of moisture.
Below steps will help you guys hopefully if its only the keys control problem.
Take the headset,The control keys are placed near the ear plugs within a area
which is different from the other part.
now what u have to do is just take some sharp thing or your nails enough and
move it around the control keys area (edges) and peel off the rubber layer
carefully.Please note its very soft rubber so be careful not tear it off else it
will be spoiled completely.
After u remove this layer u wll find layer of plastic attached to the rubber
whichh u took out and the same kind on the base. you will fin ther will be
small vertical lines and center one dot on the peeled out rubber and on base
horizontal 2-3 thin lines at the edges and dot at the centre.
actually thes are the contacts which acts as a switch if u observe it would have
been covered with the rubber kind of gum used to stick thes layers.
Just clean these (only)contacts area with piece of cloth and use some rubber kind
of glue (Do not use Feviquik it will spoil the strips completely) at edges and put
it back ,b4 fixing it gum u can test it by just keeping it and check if the keys
are working then fix every thing as it was b4 and stick the peeled out rubber panel
with the same type of glue.
there u are ur problem is solved enjoy the best music experirnce with your S9.
If u have any problem or Queries please post it i wll try to answer as soon as
if u want a video for this i wll b up loading it soon and post d link.
