    Hi,

    I like the headphones that you get free with the Hero, because of the controller half way down the wire that lets you play, pause, skip forward and backward without having to turn the phone's screen on.

    But, I find the actual earbuds don't fit too well in my ears and so are uncomfortable.

    So, does anybody have the RC E100 (HTC: Accessory store: Windows Mobile Phone Accessories: HTC Hero Wired Remote Control RC E100 (with HTC Logo): Description) adapter thingy that lets you use your own earbuds of choice, and if so, do all the buttons and everything work with the Hero?

    I gather this adapter is advertised in the box with most HTC models, and that it doesn't work with them all, so wanted to check before I buy one...

    Anybody had this at all? Or perhaps an alternative that does the same thing?

    Another question about this remote do you have to download the optional driver for the Hero?

    Of course, the E100 can use any headphones. And no there are no drivers required for the Hero. But I believe you need to set the default application which receives the remotes commands.
    When I first got the E100, meridian player by default responded to the commands from the remote.

    I'll look into this more, which application is best to use for the E100. :)

    I use Mixzing as my music player, which is free.

    Do these work together?

    I got it, and can confirm that it works! It works right out of the box, no drivers or settings needs to be fiddled with.

    I've tried it with Spotify and the regular music player.

    Hi, I bought this headset a while ago. It worked for one day.. I didn't install any drivers, just plugged it in, worked fine.

    The next day the phone couldn't recognize the headset, Then i tried installing the drivers on the CD, It said i already had the latest one. So now it just wont work. Also i've been reading on other forums and alot of people have the same problem.

    I would not recommend buying this product at all.
