    For all you "Treo-philes" out there, I saw this today...............


    http://img418.imageshack.us/img418/4923/iseries3sz.gif


    I bet its designed with the Motorola ROKR in mind, but I don't see why you folks who use your Treo as your music machine couldn't use them too. I assume you wouldn't need the adaptor, just plug'm in..............

    There's really not any more details yet, except to say they will be here November 17th..............

    I love Shure products! One thing about this; the isolating earphones really do isolate outside sounds. If you are using these while having a phone conversation I would think you'd be yelling. Kind of like when someone talks while listening to headphones and listening to music. I'm not sure how well you'd be able to modulate your voice level since you won't be hearing yourself talk as you normally do.

    Here's the press release that specifically mentions the Treo.........

    http://www.shure.com/news/pressrelea...es_101705.html


    "Offered in three different models, the i2c, i3c and i4c, the I Series complements popular portable listening devices such as the iPod®, as well as leading mobile communication systems including the PalmOne Treo™. The family of earphones will be available in two versions, giving consumers the option to choose between a dual connector for convenient attachment to an MP3 player and cellular phone, or a single connector for use with the PalmOne Treo. In either version, Shure's I Series enables consumers to alternate between total audio immersion and complete voice connection with one compact accessory."

    Causing you to increase your voice level might be a good thing, unless you already use volumecare.

    One word .. "Quality".
    I paid more than my MP3 player to buy the shure E4C noise cancelling earphones (threehundo plus) , they are worth it .

    Those are list prices, because these are new.............

    If you shop the head/earphone online stores you might be able save a little. And yes, Shures are worth it.........

    Interesting idea from Shure. I'm guessing the plug is 2.5mm for the Treo or maybe they have an adapter like the Seidio adapter.

    Speaking to the quality, I have some Etymotics, which are higher end like the Shures. The sound is incredible and makes listening to music something to look forward to. It is like driving a cheap car and then driving a Mercedes. Well worth the money, though not sure the i4c's are worth the extra money over the i2c's.

    I'm thrilled to hear about this. I took a look at the Palm and Seidio headphones, but they don't look like they can compare to my etymotics (which I used with the ipod I just sold). Also, I have small ears, and I worry about the Palm headphones not fitting well. Etymotic and shure headphones fit great because they are small in-ear buds.

    Unfortunately even the straight adapter I bought from radio shack is just not cutting it and can't hold a constant connection (I ordered the L-shaped 2.5-3.5 adapter from this site this morning to hold me over until the shures come out). Anyway, for anyone thinking of getting all in one headphones, no doubt it's best to wait for this pair (I'll be getting the i2c's). The sound will be exceptional. I had decided to wait until etymotics or shure came out with something like this, but thought it was still just in my imagination. Thanks to this site for the great news! A high end treo all in one headphone unit is just around the corner....

    EDIT: I just tried to preorder it from Amazon, and it says that the expected ship date is in January. *sigh*

    They look a lot like my Sony MDR-EX81SL headphones. Only £25 for those.....

    Hate to say it but that was a big mistake. The Palm adapter is what is causing the headphone jacks to fail. It puts a lot of sideways torque on the jack. The best one available is the adapter from Seidio. It is small and will make your jack last a lot longer. Also be carefull about putting the adapter in and out. It is fragile.

    Yeesh. That's a lot of money to pay for a headset. I guess I don't listen to enough music to make it worth while. I have the "low end" Shures (~$90) and love em, but wouldn't pay multiples of that even if the sound were slightly better.

    gapost: Great. I ordered it this morning, and it already shipped. I even bought TWO of them. I also ordered the new backplate to the Treo and screen protector from Seidio this morning. Hopefully they'll let me add the adapter before they ship, cause I'd hate to spend $6 on the adapter and $6 on shipping (which is what they charge). Wish there was a local store I could buy this at, but I tried the usual suspects and couldn't find any.

    On the other hand, perhaps it would be a good idea to use the Palm adapter so I have more reason to badger Palm into fixing my Treo when the jack fails? I fear it sounds like any type of adapter strain is going to eventually do some damage. And it looks like I'll be using one until January....

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I assume the i2c's compare to the e2c's, i3c's to the e3c's, and the i4c's to the e4c's in terms of sound quality, with the added benefit of being the phone's headset and have the right size cable...............

    I've seen and briefly auditioned the Treo 650 version of the Shure i4c and it sounds quite promising. I've requested a review sample for the site and hope to get them in soon. You can read about my impressions of the preview sample here: http://www.bigpicturebigsound.com/article_603.shtml

    The Shure i4c uses the exact same drivers as the e4c but adds a volume control and a hands-free microphone plus a button to switch to phone mode when a call comes in.

    In answer to the question about adapters, the Treo650 version of the i4c does not use an adapter - it is designed specifically to fit the Treo 650 jack. And as for price, well it does represent a $20 premium over the standard Shures -- the e4C lists for $299, the i4c lists for $319. $20 ain't much to pay for a high quality mic, volume control and switch, plus the convenience of not having to remove your headphones when a call comes in. Personally I don't think a pair of $300 headphones for a device like the Treo is that ridiculous to those who want the highest quality playback of their music (or movies, or whatever you happen to enjoy on your Treo), but those who want similar noise isolation and the convenience of the integrated design can opt for the i2c which lists for $119.

    Plus I would expect significant discounts off list once these hit the market in quantity. I currently use the Etymotic ER4P ($330 list) and am very happy with these - they're similar to the design of the Shures with earplug-like noise isolation - but they do not integrate the hands-free mic function of Shure's i-series.

    The non-Treo version of the i4c includes TWO plugs - one for your cell phone and one for your MP3 player and it allows you to switch between devices when a call comes in. I expect these to be extremely successful for Shure.

    Regards,

    I use Seidio's "2-in-1 Music Enthusiast Headset, Retractable". It costs $50 at Seidioonline. The sound is great, bass is strong, the fit is very comfortable (especially after I added foam covers), the retractor works great, and it is incredibly convenient to have the mic, volume control, and control button on a handy little pod. Combined with the "Headset Control" program from jwideas.com I can do pretty much everything with ease. The program allows the control button to start or stop Pockettunes, skip to the next song or go back to the previous song, answer and hang-up the phone, and even dial my home phone number -- all with the treo remaining in my pocket.
