    Stereo Headphone question

    Hi,

    Can the "Q" accept any 2.5mm stereo headphones or does it have to be :"Q" specific? I found a pair that I like but its "universal" according to the package. I don't care if the call answer or Mute buttons do not work as long as I can use them for music and movies which is my main goal. I use bluetooth for calls. I know I could get an adapter but I'd really like to just hook a set up directly. I think I read somewhere that the "Q" has a 4-conductor plug and so I want to confirm this before I order.

    Thanks,

    Rob

    No, you need a specific adapter and not the kind sold at radio shack that just adapts the size down. The wiring is different on the Q because there is a microphone lead down there.

    stupid freaking adapter

    See, I was about to get the adapter listed in the store here but shipping to Canada is $30, three times the cost of the item. Plus, it's shipped via UPS which will undoubtedly charge up to $20 for brokerage fees and customs. Trying to find one of these in Canada is dang near impossible.

    Does anyone know if one of these can be found on this side of the border???

    Does anyone even read this anymore? I've been searching for weeks to no avail. I'm pretty frustrated and annoyed at Motorola and Telus for not offering such a simple little adapter for a phone they push so much.

    I even had a Motorola CSR from South America tell me exactly what part number I needed but he said he couldn't send me one because I didn't live in the U.S. After calling Motorola Canada and providing them with the part number, they were clueless and stated that they had no way of sending me a part that they don't have. How can you not have a part for your own phone? I don't understand why this is such a mess!?!?!?!

    Someone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP!

    I wouldn't mind mailing you the adapter from Radio Shack. It's no big deal. Just PM me if you want me to.

    How about this pair of headphones? It has a button for answering/hanging up and gel pads for your ears. It works great on my Q. Oh, and there's quite of selection of 2.5mm to 3.5mm/3.5mm to 2.5mm adapter over there, too at a reasonable price.
