    Then you haven't listened to enough head phones.

    Bose, Grado, Sennheiser, among others, have advanced headphone technology significantly.

    I've listened to all kinds of wide-dynamic audio from many stereo receivers, computers, laptops, and handhelds including Zodiacs and Treos with them.
    You're attempting to position yourself as some kind of expert, which you're not.

    I'm saying that if you watch enough music videos and other films that show recording artists in a booth and studio engineers in a control booth hunched over very expensive consoles, you'll see them wearing these cans and they can afford anything. So there must be a reason they choose to use these $100.00 headphones
    This is a bad argument. They use the Sony headphones because they have some of the best sound isolation you can find, with a pretty good audio quality. More importantly, the sound output is consistent from one set to another. It's the industry standard because everyone is used to using them. Having a sound engineer move between a different set of headphones confuses his ears.

    It's a very subjective subject but I've never found anything in a form factor that you have to stuff or seat IN your ears that works for me.
    I agree with this. In-ear headphones cause pain on the inside of my ear, in addition to removing outside sound pretty thoroughly. Those are both bad in my book, because I need portable ear phones that I can wear when I jog or go to the gym. I need to be aware of my surroundings.




    All of this is just my opinion but there are a lot of other audiophiles out there who agree
    Every audiophile I've talked to is a Grado fan to the death. I've listened to my friends go on about this crap endlessly, and I'll stick with Bose or Sennheiser after my personal use.


    You can call me old school if you like but unless you're willing to spend ridiculous amounts of money on audiophile hardware these days, in my opinion the vast majority of what's out there in the mass market is junk.

    Listen to any cans rated 20hz-20khz which is typical these days (such is the rating of the $250.00 Plantronics 590a headset) compared to this old design and the difference is like a steakums and filet mignon

    I'm convinced that you're full of yourself and don't have nearly the experience you proclaim. Or you've just spent your time reading other people's reviews and taking it as gospel.

    The bottom line is that you don't know what you're talking about; your posts on those headphones sounds like a 2am infomercial. Did you actually write that part about not wearing headphones in your car?

    the headphones that came with the treo are pretty good except that the wires are really thin. I'm on my second headset. The first one I had ripped when I tugged it a little too hard. Any other decent headphones that plug straight into the jack?

    I use Ultimate Ear Super.Fi 5 EBs. I've been very pleased with them. They retail near $200, but can be had much less. I got mine used off e-bay for $80+chg. b/c everyone is chasing better marketed brands.

    http://www.ultimateears.com/superfi/...5-EB_white.htm

    FYI, and by way of background, I also own Grado SR325s and Senn's HD-600s; I use the former for Jazz, and prefer the latter with my Classical collection. I also run em through my HeadRoom Micro Headphone Amp. (desktop module), which makes a world of difference when I'm travelling. Point is, I'm a bit of an audio nut, I own some damn fine equipment, and I think the SuperFi's are generally quite good having listened to the good stuff.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention, my cans stomp the hell out of Sonys. Also, I wouldn't discount placement of Sony's products BY SONY in these music videos/films precisely so one might draw, incorrectly, the sorts of conclusions the other poster made.

    speaking of headphones, the headphone jack on my 700p went bad today. i have to hold the plug in the right direction to get sound out of my headphones now. my question is will Sprint be able to fix my problem OR replace my phone at a local sprint store or will I have to go through the same process I went through when my screen cracked? I had to request a new phone, pay a $50 deductable then they sent me a new phone and I sent back my old one.

    thanks for any help

    i still love my Shures i3c-t. No call or answer button. But calls are always clear and the music sounds great. but they cost $120. been using them for 1 year now and they come with a 2 year warranty.

    Sounds like the 700p has the same problem as the 650. The audio jack is poorly soldered, and will go bad quickly, especially with the right-angle adapters they sell, which puts alot of stress on it, and you can't even put it upside down, since the antenae sticks up and makes it tilt.

    First the static starts, then one ear goes, then it only works if you tilt it, or really bend it... then it dies.

    I went through 2 650's within the first year, using various adapters/headphones. I opened up the last one, since I no longer had support.

    Eventually, I started using the Seido adapters that connect to the charger adapter on the bottom. These work for a few months, and they break before the Treo does, so you are only out $8 or so.

    But I can't get my last one to work with my 700p. Maybe they don't work on it? Or the adapter is broken? Will keep trying.

    If you want decent sounding earbuds (I prefer earbuds to other types for comfort, looks, and background sound blocking), and the $100-200 price range makes you shudder, check out these:

    Sony MDR-EX71 Earbuds

    I'm on my second pair and they sound pretty doggone good for < $30!

    You'll need the mini-adaptor plug (doesn't come with these).

    I'm just trying to find something inexpensive (under $40) - ear buds with call mic to use with my 700p and I'm striking out. Verizon carries a cool blue universal set, but I could only hear sound in one ear. Does anyone know of an adapter fix for this?

    I think Plantronics has a set, but I'm not crazy about the ear lobe clip and the white color. As you can see, I'm more interested in aesthetics than sound quality... weird, I know.

    i've gone through two of these seidio ones - while the convenience is great the quality was not so good- cheap wiring and they both broke down fairly quickly. and i'm not even a 'power user' = pretty much left the earphones in the car and only used while driving. too bad

    I drive a truck. Naturally there's a high level of ambient noise. I use the Boise QC-2 for listening AND talking while driving.
    At home I use the Shure 13C-T0036's. Both are excellent in the respective environs. For music the Boise can't be beat.
