    Has anyone else noticed that the metal on the earbuds are actually magnets. The earbuds hold to eachother making it easy to wrap them up and keeps them from knotting up in my backpack

    Nice touch

    Yep, it is a nice touch. I wish they were just a little stronger--I find that mine come apart easily. But the magnets do make it a lot easier to slide the cord thingy up to hold them together for good.

    The magnets are also good for telling you which one goes in which ear, since it is quite impossible to read the L and R imprinted. The magnets face front.

    By the way, I also find that they sound quite good, and fit in my ear just fine. Ipod earbuds always make my ears hurt after an hour or so, but these don't bother me at all.

    When I first saw them I thought to myself, "Oh great! another pair of cheap, crap earbuds." Since I've tried them out however, I'm very happy with the sound, they don't hurt my ears and they're actually pretty comfortable.

    I think Palm get's another point for this.

    Yep, it's an interesting little detail.

    Hopefully we won't find out that brain tumors are ever linked with wearing magnets in the ears.

    I'm a huge fan of Sony's in-the-ear-canal isolating buds, but the Palm ones are pretty darned good for free ones. And the built-in mic and switch in the cord work well for making calls, as long as you're not in a super noisy environment.

    Free if you don't count the 200 dollar phone you just bought.

    That's what Zune earbuds have done since gen 1 as well. I love that feature.

    The earbuds also act as a headset, with the black piece on the cord acting as button to answer/end calls and pause/play music with a single click. If you want to skip a track, you just double click on the button. The other side of the button also has a built-in microphone to allow you to make calls without ever taking out your earbuds, as well.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the good audio quality and functionality of the headset. I just wish they were a bit smaller, as they're hard to fit comfortably in the ear.

    So hard to read, in fact, that I didn't even know it was until I read this.
