    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~radio shack is your best bet and think the jack is 2.5mm. You may not get a stereo signal but I heard that if you pause the song then unplug and replug it works. Not sure because I have been satisfied with the stock ones.

    What do you mean by 4 contacts? I just bought a set of 2.5mm off of ebay and only one ear works. so i guess its 3 contacts? is there any way around it or do i just have to get a new pair?

    Re: Headphone problems !!!

    Here is an explanation of why you loose one audio channel when you insert standars headphones into a BB8100. Because blackberry have an extra connection for the Mike, one of the audio channels is moves further up the jack plug so that when you plug in standard headphones you short this channel to ground. See the diagram below (attached). The good new is ... well there isn't any, I have been looking for a 2.5mm 4 pole jack to 3.5mm 3 pole stereo socket adapter without any success for some time, I had to resort to butchering the supplied headphones and soldering up a converter myself

    Target sells an adaptor for $14.97. It's by Wireless, and works perfectly. It also allows you to talk while wearing the headphones. Has a nice cord retractor too. I use my Sony earphones and get great sound. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Blackberry sells a set of earphones made specifically for the Pearl that not only include stereo sound, but also include the mic that's built in to the supplied earphone. You can find them in the Blackberry store.


    Alternatively, Shure's i2c-t stereo/cellular headset also works, but because of differences between the 4 pin connections, the sound is mono. Kind of defeats the purpose of buying high end earphones, from my perspective.
