    I was thinking about getting the palmone hybrid headphones from the tc store, but was wondering - are these good quality? For $20 they seem reasonable. I am asking bc the kind that came with my smt5600 smartphone always fall out of my ears, and many others have noticed this problem as well.

    I haven't tried the others, but the cheap PalmOne hybrid headphones are not very good for music. And I had trouble with them falling out of my ears. I was very disappointed, I'm going to cut off the ear buds on these PalmOne phones and attaching some real stereo headphone buds just to see what happens.

    I just got the palm adapter from 2.5 to 3.5. Then your whole world of headphones opens up. Sure it's sloppy but Palm is sloppy for not putting a 3.5 jack on it.

    I think the palmOne hybrid stereo headset is quite good, after you break it in.

    The Koss Sporta-Pro are a little bass-heavy (a lot, actually), so if you like a lot of bass, those are for you.

    I have the Koss KSC-35, which are light, comfortable, and sound good.

    I ended up getting Seidio 2 in 1 adapter

    and the headphones for Sony Clie PDAs

    The cool thing about these headphones is that they have a short cord because they are meant to be plugged in to a wired remote control. This makes the adapter and the headphones combo not to be a long-cord mess. The sound quality of these headphones is better than the palmOne and Seidio headphones.

    You may also want to get these headphones

    if you want to have a wider frequency response range.

    You may get these headphones on ebay by searching for Clie Headphones.

    Having the Sedio adapter with me as part of my headphone setup makes it easy to be able to plug in Treo to external speakers, a stereo, or an FM transmitter, if there is a need, without having to carry a separate adapter. And of course the ability to control the volume without having to get my phone out of my pocket and launching Pocket Tunes and being able to answer and hang up the calls with a button on the headphone cord is an invaluable feature.

    I just got these:

    and OMG, what a difference!!! These headphones beat the in-the-ear buds hands down - epsecially the ones designed for the phone. I can actually hear the bass now!

    While looking at the Seidio adapter's description in the TreoCentral Store, I wondered... what kind of "Light weight, comfortable in-the-ear design for discrete listening" can a plain adapter have??

    how much are you willing to spend? the etymotic er6i are for sale at buy.com for $80 right now...fantastic headphones. their big brother, the etymotic er4p is even better. i'd also recommend the shure e3c, the e4c (should be out in a week or so), and on a budget, the sony ex71 isn't too bad. just stay away from bose.

    I have the 2.5 to 3.5mm adapter and got a pair of Bose QC2 headphones for free from American Express. They are quite good, filter out a lot of ambient noise and music sounds fine. Can't use them for talking on the phone of course. Also, they need a battery to function,a triple A. The battery lasts a long time though.

    Do you use these on your 650? I assume they need the adapter, right? I have been wanting these for a long time, but wasn't sure if they would work or not. Thanks!

    Everyone says the etymotic top of the line at around $200 are the best but $200 is a lot for earbuds. There was a PC Mag review I read awhile back that plugged the Sony earbuds which I wound up getting from Dell for $35. I think they are excellent. They are not as good as the Sony noise-cancelling-over-the-ear phones I have, but they are a lot easier to carry around.

    Yes--phones need an adapter. It costs about $6, it is sold on TreoCentral.com
    If it doesn't have a slot for SDHC--I don't want it. Period.
