    Hmm, I searched for a post on this but couldnt find one...I just realized that the earbuds that come with the Pre are magnetic and stick together.

    Chalk it up to one of those, "Oh...neat."

    I think it is quite a cool feature
    Qualcomm QCP 2700 -> ... Palm m125 ... -> Instinct -> Palm Pre

    I tweet a lot about the Pre! @bshedwick

    also buy having them attached and sliding up to the ear buds the black "ring" thats there the wires will hardly tangle, at least that's what I've noticed. I'm not sure if that was the purpose of including the magnets, but it works.

    Good idea. I'll try that.
    Palm V-->Visor Deluxe-->Visor Prism-->Visorphone-->Treo 180-->Treo 600-->Treo 650 on Sprint-->Treo 700p-->Centro-->Diamond-->Pre-->HTC EVO 4g???!

    The magnets are so that you can put the earbuds around your neck and click them together so they'll stay put when you're not using them.

    I also enjoy how the included headphones won't fit in my ears.

    But whatever, I have a nicer pair of 'buds that I'd use anyway.

    You know lots of people say that. I myself must have some weird shaped ears because they fit perfectly for me! (But I prefer bluetooth headphones anyway.)

    You sure you didn't do a search? I posted this the day the phone came out and people
    (joelpalm) were being ******'s in the thread:

    Apologies if this has been posted before, I just noticed that the little metal circles on the headphones that came with the pre are actually tiny magnets that 'lock' the two earpieces together for storage. Figured I'd share, go ahead and try it out.

    Quite cool

    I am confused how you don't know if it has been posted before. When you start a new thread doesn't it automatically search for you similar threads based on the title Mine does. Am I the only one? But yeah. Here it is. Bringing up the old thread will accomplish the same task for zna03 and cut down on duplicate threads. Just FYI.

    And theres a button on the "Y" part of the earphones... Push it once and it pauses Pandora, push it twice and it skips to the next song. Not sure if anyone knew this. Think there is a microphone intergrated into it as well.
