Default SF earbuds

I don't like the earbuds supplied with my SF and would like to change for better ones, but the originals come with a 4 way connector as opposed to the 3 way on most earbuds. So does anyone know if there are earbuds with the right connector, or an adaptor. My Sony earbuds do work, but only if I push the plug in all the time.

Thank you, Tom

Have you tried somewhere like Maplin? They stock pretty much any sort of adaptor you could think of ever.

I`m getting the SFII tomorrow, ordered a day or so ago from Orange. In readiness I bought the Sony MW600 Bluetooth which has the hands free on the unit, a built in radio and a set of slim in ear Sony earphones plugged into a standard 3.5mm port. The real beauty is the port accepts any earphones with a 3.5mm audio jack plug. The unit has A2DP streaming which I believe the SF and SFII uses.

The other advantage for me is it can be used with my other phones and/or just on its own as a radio. Its a very short length of wire to the unit and then Bluetooth all the way to your phone with a built in clip. Only bad thing apart from the shortness is one side is a longer wire than the other, but you can use your own. Once Bluetooth is set up it controls most music players too with start/stop music, forward,reverse, next track, previous track. Controls for swapping playback device (radio/music player) and the up/down volume slider are a little tricky but not too bad.

Watch Maplin, brilliant store but they go wild with their prices. I got the MW600 from Play.com for 35 and paid about 5 for next day delivery with it being Christmas time. Google it for more details and prices at other places. Glad I bought it and I haven`t even tried it on my SFII til I get it tomorrow. No more long earphone cables to hide down my T shirt and/or inside my coat.
