    Can anyone who owns a Desire tell me if it works ok with headphones that didn't come with the device? After reading the thread about music skipping with third party headphones plugged in, I did a little bit of research and discovered that this problem seems to be linked to devices with a recessed headphone jack, like the Droid Eris, iPhone, Nexus One, etc. They tend to only play nice with the supplied headphones, and certain other brands. Turns out the iPhone is actually pretty infamous for it.

    I have pre-ordered the Desire, but I am considering switching to the Legend, as this has a flat/normal headphone jack, and as I really hate those in-ear headphones that are supplied, I'm going to want to use something other than the supplied HTC ones.

    Ok, don't let this put you off. After some more searching and whatnot, it seems this is some kind of problem with different headphone plugs, causing the phone to interpret movements of the connector as commands coming from a headset like pause, skip, rewind, etc. I've found reports of the problem on the Galaxy i7500, Motorola Droid, Nexus One... Some of the phones have flat headphone jacks, so it looks like it doesn't really have anything to do with the shape of the connector. I guess I'll stick with my Desire order and see how my headphones work with it.

    The HTC headphones are quite good (the ones that come with it).

    I have tried 2 different headphones and 1 cassette tape adapter -- all worked fine on my HTC Desire.

    Can't see why such rumors would be started.

    Radio also works fine with all of them, contrary to some claims that it will only work with the original headphones.
