Default Wired (boom) headset - Xperia Mini Pro

Hi All

Just got my Xperia Mini Pro - and loving it.

But I am not a fan of bluetooth - I like my headset to be physically plugged in to the phone - and I like a boom.

Unfortunately, my current headset is incompatible

Research tells me that iPhone, Blackberry (I think mine is this type) and HTC are different - but what is the Xperia Mini Pro - which type do I want.

Even a confirmed pinout to allow me to make one would be helpfull.

Better yet, does anyone know of a wired boom headset (or adaptor cable) that is definitely compatible with the Xperia Mini Pro. If there was a genuine SE model I would buy it without hesitation.

TIA

Terry

Answering my own question.

IT appears that the Sony uses OMTP type pinouts which is the same as Nokia (and Samsung) but NOT the same as iPod/iPhone, HTC and Blackberry which use CTIA pinouts.

Don't make the assumption that a "Smartphone adaptor" will work - it wont.

Until I find the right headset buddy to allow me to use a PC (2x3.5mm) headset, the Nokia AD-53 adaptor should do the trick

FURTHER UPDATE

The Nokia AD-53 should allow the use of an Xbox headset. I'll confirm that shortly.

FURTHER FURTHER UPDATE

The Nokia AD-53 is the solution of choice. It is neat, high quality and wroks well with a 2.5mm headset. It allows a wide choice of headsets including XBox. The "Headset Buddy" (and it's StarTech.com equivalent) DO NOT work on the Mini Pro

Like the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini, the Xperia Mini Pro offers a ton of great features that compare to today's top smartphones but keeps it in a nice, small package. It even offers something its Mini brother doesn't - a full slideout QWERTY... Read More
