    Simple enough, if anything other than standard, which headphones do you use?

    - Name
    - Pic
    - Price
    - Recommend? yes/no

    I'm stuck with the standard HTC offering at the moment, not great quality, may look into others...

    Is there anything better out there with compatible in-line music controls and a mic?

    they still sound shit

    its all about the Bose... but the phone lacks high volume so in noisy environments you cant get the best sounds regardless

    Grabbed a set of these as my Sony's were just too bass'y and the Creative ones are good but I just would have like a little more bass as they seem a touch light, plus I don't seem to get on too well with the suction type earbids - my Sonys have the ducted / molded type.

    Hey @tomq, I had a very similar idea and went as far as cutting the ends off each set but can't seem to get the connections right - any tips?

    Probably not the type your after but... I use Sony DR-BT50's which are pretty good and work near flawlessly via Bluetooth, the only thing that doesn't work is the skip folder button, all the other remote options work perfect. They also sound great and they have no wires :)

    Although I'm still looking for something better than this that is also wireless.

    Plantronics backbeat 903's are very good, bass boost makes the sound very nice. Bluetooth which is good too.

    hi lekky,

    i've read bad reviews on Plantronics backbeat 903, a lot saying "its good only when it's working" and that it does not work after a week or so...
    a lot saying that they have returned them for replacement and still got faulty products after. (user reviews on amazon)

    I'm also thinking of buying one of these but got scared reading its reviews... yours working fine?

    Yep perfect, had mine for well over a month i think (made a thread here to help me decide). No problems at all. If im walking outside in the complete open then it stutters occasionally, but i think this is the same with all BT headsets, nothing for the BT to bounce off. All the controls work well with desire too.

    I use Sennheiser CX300 II noise cancelling earphones also. But cost me $AUD125.00 :eek:

    Also had some Creative's - were actually rebranded Sennheiser CX300 and much cheaper than buying the former, pity they went AWOL somewhere between Beijing and Seoul . . . . . .

    I am currently looking for a pair of in-ear headphones for the Desire. I am used to a pair of CX-300II, so something along those lines, but with working mic and controls would be favourable.
    Otherwise I'd just go for a new pair of CX-300II's.

    Ok, I highly recommend the UE Metrofi 220s. In ear noise canceling. Look on play.com. You can get these 45 pound headphones for just 17. Too good to miss and they are defiantly very high quality!

    Sennheiser CX300 II are very good for the money but you have to be carefull where you buy them as a lot of small online sellers supply fakes.

    UE Metrofi 220s are also good and have a flatter responce than the CX300's which are more bass heavy but I have more problems with cable noise with the 220's.

    Funny how you say that given my experience that the volume leves etc are fine. GSM Arena also took to doing a thorough test of the Desire audio capabilities which resulted as follows:

    May just be possible that your Headphones are at conflict with the jack used in the Desire.
