    Question about headphones

    Advertisement



    Do you need to have a certain kind of adapter to listen to your Blackberry with stereo headphones? I bought an adapter at Radio Shack and everytime I plug in the headphones, it brings up the voice dialing prompt. I then go to my media player and choose "activate headset" but can't hear anything.

    Bite the bullet and get yourself the Motorola S9 bluetooth stereo headphones.

    They are the best accessory for your BB

    as VR said go to Seidio if you want a quality adapter that has the 3.5mm female to the 2.5mm female for your 8100. there are a lot of cheap ones that do not work. it has something to do with the 3 rubber O rings on the male plug, the cheap ones only have two

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I recently picked up a jabra BT8010 Stereo bluetooth headset w/additional earpiece I use it mainly for podcasts so I only use the main bluetooth unit,battery life is great(picked it up on "the" auction site for $30, might be another option for you.
