    Read all the reviews, i like them both (although i wish the V1 came in black), but i am a little torn as to which one to go with.

    The V1 caller id hear is annoying with having to listen to the whole numerical caller id.

    So to those that have either or, or maybe both i would like some real life comments!

    Z9i from what I have read has better noise cancelation.
    Z9i is capable of updates too. The v1 is not ( I think)
    I love my z9i

    Waiting for the q1 though.
    That thing looks sick

    Another wonder of technology from blueant, lol

    I have a plantronics 520 which is incredible and am in the same boat because I want something new.
    The only thing stopping me from the v1 is that google411 is set to speedial#5 and cannot be changed.
    Those little quirks have me leaning to the z9i, which probably isn't much different than my 520, so I will be holding off for the q1 like eve6er69

    Got my Blueant Z9i today! So far so good. Easy to use, the fit is amazing. Good voice clarity. And for $40.00 i'm happy.

    I just won a brand new on off of ebay...so I should be getting it by Thursday....trying something other than plantronics (which I think makes great headsets)
    the V1 with the whole speed dial preset thing turned me off of that model.

    Have had 2 headsets: jaw 1 which sounded muffeled like cotton in ears and the other one I had stunk so bad I don't even remember the name. I had to yell to be heard. Yet it did sound better than jaw 1

    I have a z9(flashed with z9i firmware v1.1) and a z9i (v.1.1)... while the wife has a v1 (v.5.3... yes it does have firmware updates just like the previous models. ).

    Both my z9/flashed and z9i are identical in performance and function.
    The v1 seems to have better clarity on incoming and outgoing. I find that both models perform great in windy situations (top down on my roadster doing 75mph. on the 215W.

    I have noticed that the noise isolation does seem to be quicker, and a tad better with the z9i (or maybe that's just me).

    All in all.... it's hard for me to say which is better. I like them both.

    Although like the majority of the posters on this thread, I would really like to give the Q1 a shot (especially since Blue Ant just came out with a new firmware .15, that increases the incoming volume... which is what a couple of people were having issues with).
