    Im giving up on bluetooth and want to get a stereo headset that can also deal with calls. i need something that looks simple but doesnt have horrible sound. palm's looks the best but im sure sound quality is pathetic. anyone using anything thats not super shiny or bulky.

    The Brand is Shure, and they have two models, $129 for the E3a, and $329 for the E4a. Not entirely sure about the model numbers. Superb quality, noise-cancelling (great in airplanes), three sets of different shaped earplugs, etc. One plug for the Treo, handles calls and music. Music is interrupted when a call comes in, and resumes when you hang up. The second plug fits MP3, iPod, etc

    I've tried them all. The Seidio, others, and the Palm Hybrid one is the one I've settled on. It really has good sound quality, to me, and it's just a simple design. No moving parts; the mic is close to your mouth, and it just works. It probably doesn't have as good sound quality as the Shure but hey - this is a PHONE, with music as an add-on, so you have to roll with it. I don't even own an iPod or any other music player - I use the Treo as my exclusive music player, with my 4Gb SD card.

    My issue with the one from Shure that works as phone mode also is that the mic pod thing is huge. I just want a lightweight thing that is simple. The Palm Hybrid Headset does that for me, and it's a good price as well.

    I use the palm hybrids... they're OK, and they don't cost alot, so I won't cry when I break them.

    I was tempted when I saw $72 for the Sure's though:

    I use these two from Seidio:

    These are good because you can use your own headphones.

    I use these for when I run with my Treo. The earpieces stay on my ears better.

    Both these headsets devices work well for me.

    how'd would that work? the mic would be so low id have to hold it up.

    also, do the shures wrap around your neck at all?

    that Seidio 2-in1 adapter is useless - you're right, the mic would be down at your waist. Just a dumb design.

    Try the Palm one - it's just a basic design, and doesn't have all sorts of crap on it that will bog you down (I'm tellin' ya - I've tried the retracto ones, and others, and all that...BS...on the cord and stuff is just more hassle than it's worth.). THe Palm one works great for both music AND phone, and that's the bottom line to me. Both.

    The review on the TC home page dinged it because it didn't have a lapel clip, but I just say that's one more thing to have to futz around with.

    The Palm hybrid headset is my favorite headset as well. I've tried several other solutions but I keep coming back to the Palm version. They sound great, they are comfortable in my ears with the foam covers on, the asymmetrical set up allows the mic to hang near my chin, I also tend to wrap the right side wire behind my neck so that the weight of the cord is actually supported by my neck, the button on the mic pod works perfectly with Headset control. The long cord is shortened by wrapping it on a simple plastic cord holder. Give it a try, you can't go wrong. It's a great deal at the price they are asking for it. You can buy it right here at TreoCentral.
