    Ha...you should hear the sound quality with my Bose headphones. Wow!!! I am truly impressed. However the quality w/ no headphones (straight from the speaker) really bites. I can't even get it loud enough to hear Sprint TV at all. And often times I am moving around at work, so wearing the Bose then isn't feasible. Anyone else notice how low the sound is on the speaker? Yes, I adjusted it in settings to loudest setting.

    It's low in Sprint TV. I'm listening to music right now (just to test it out) and actually had to turn it down because it's rather loud straight out of the speaker.

    I am loving the stereo bluetooth in conjunction with my car stereo. I can skip tracks from the head unit and when i turn my car off, the music player on the Pre pauses the track. Saweeet! So much better than the aux jack I was using with my ipod touch.

    When your get a call it picks up the call, on a call click the button will end. When your playing music it pauses, and then a double click advances to next track. No previous track it seems.

    Palm Pre and Beats by Dr. Dre headphones by Monster...................a match crafted in heaven! The sound is wonderful, Pandora is very cool. If you use the black cord that comes with the headphones it doubles as a headset, not in love with the sound but nonetheless a cool feature.

    Are you serious? The Shure SE530's are $549.00. That is insane.

    Last night I tried with my Bose headphones too and I was blow away with the quality. I do not like the Palm Pre headphones and going to look for a replacement. The Bose headphones are on an airplane but not for everyday use.

    Quick question, are there any benefits to the seriously strong magnets on the standard headphones, other than really tight sound. Mine actually stick to each other if the metal parts touch. Interesting.

    I use a pair of Shure SE530 with my pre too, and have to say this is very impressive for a phone (especially coming from a treo700p) the noise level is very low!

    Now if the music app will support ogg or flac files....

    They're supposed to so that you can loop them around your neck when not in use.

    I'm using a tape adapter for my Honda Accord, and even with the Pre at full volume and my car radio at full volume I can barely hear anything.

    I use the Bose earbuds (under $99) and they are amazing. The only issue I have with the mp3 player is not seeing how I can jump from one part of a song to another.

    I tested my Sennheiser HD585 on the Pre. The headphone audio jack fits in all the way. Sound quality was pleasing. It has the potential to replace my original standalone MP3 player, only if Palm Pre would allow more options on the music player software itself because it is really limited (I can't even repeat a song, really?).

    Actually yes you can, just hit the repeat button twice. Once for the full list, and the second time just for only the current song playing to be repeated.

    I've been happy with the sound quality from the Pre, but I still wish the music player itself was better--no playlists on the fly, no advanced features like the Creative Zen, no auto-resume of your track when you shut it off and turn it back on...there's a lot missing from the player.

    I've been using the Pre to stream Pandora to my car stereo via the aux jack. It's not high-quality audio obviously, but I was stunned at how good it sounded for streaming audio. To my ears, it sounded better than Sirius (which is sounds like ****e anyway, not saying much), and slapping it on Quicklist provided more variety than any Sirus station could. I haven't loaded MP3s on it (that's what my iPod is for mostly), but I find it cool that I can listen to Pandora while still hearing the occasional GPS announcement

    I really enjoy listening to music on my Pre but prefer to use my own headphones. My Sony PSP headphones are in two pieces. The first piece is a cable with a connector on one end (which goes into the PSP) and the remote on the other. The remote itself has a 3.5mm jack for standard headphones. The second piece is standard el-cheapo sony earbuds with 3.5mm jack. The configuration results in a headphone with an in-line remote. I really love this. Anyone know if there's a similar cable with remote that can be used with the Pre to provide the same flexability?
