    Hi, I'm waiting on my incredible (hopefully will arrive today).
    Anyhow, I've heard that you can only listen to the radio/music when you have a headset plugged in. I have really small ears, and cannot wear earbuds comfortably. Anybody have any suggestions? I saw once that Sony sold ear-buds for small ears, but not sure what type of plug they had, and if they'll be compatable with the Incredible (or is this pretty much standard?)

    3.5mm headphone jack (which is what's on the Inc.) is the standard size plug on most headphones (basically ALL headphones, except ones that were made to fit specific phones back when phones had a 2.5mm jack instead of the standard 3.5mm jack).

    As far as the earbuds for small ears, I can't speak from experience as I use the large size earbud covers for my ears, but I just bought a pair of Klipsch S2M earbuds which have a built in microphone with a button for answering and ending calls from Amazon for $32. Their earbuds are oval instead of round like most other brands and they are VERY comfortable. I feel no pressure in my ears at all when I wear them. They came with 3 different size ear gels, and the smallest is VERY small. Might be worth a try for only 32 bucks.

    Zagg earbuds come with lots of different sized fittings.. But unless you are married to a local station, just get the radiotime app and stream your content. You can visit the radiotime web site to see what is available and setup presets to access on your phone..

    by earbuds do you mean earbuds or do you mean canalphones (IEM's)?

    if canalphones (IEM's) are what you mean than they should fit everybody. they usually will come with 3 different sized rubber or foam pieces to fit different people.

    i have a set of Sennheiser CX300II's and they sound great with the Incredible. if you really care about sound then you need to be careful buying phones for the Incredible or any android phone for that matter. as you may know, Android phones have no EQ. so you'll need to research headphones to make sure you get something that will sound how you want it to sound.

    i haven't tried many other headphones but the Sennheiser CX300II's sound excellent along with my Incredible. they have very good bass, but still sound perfectly clear in the midrange and top end. they are also very sensitive, so they can get very loud without having to put the volume to the maximum. the medium sized rubber pieces fit my ears very nicely so they are very comfortable after a couple days of getting used to them. i couldn't be happier with them.

    not saying they are the only choice, but i highly recommend them.

    If you're willing to spend a few extra bucks and get some really nice headphones, I HIGHLY recommend the Sennheiser CX-400 Precision II earbuds. I have oddly shaped ears, so I can't wear traditional earbuds, but these are awesome. They actually fit into the ear canal, and come with 6 different sized pads (including very small ones) so you can pick the ones that fit most comfortably. Plus the sound quality is absolutely fantastic for the price.

    I have to agree with jasonb. I also have these and really enjoy the way they sound. The Klipsch S2M's I recommended above are more comfortable (in my opinion) and they do sound good (they are very crisp), but the Sennheiser's sound a little better and have better bass, but they don't have the built-in microphone.
