The Headphones... ?
Ok so there has been lots and lots of talk about the phones themselves right. But what about the headphones?
the iPhone five totally revamped their head sets, and they are AWESOME.
but I remember all too well from my curve 9360 the head phones were horrifically Uncomfortable..
I just want to know if you guys think blackberry will pay attention to the headphones just as much as they are to the phone.
or will they slap in a cheap crappy pair like they always do.. -.-~εrin

I have to agree with the OP. Headphones are a part of the packaged deal with a new handset. Apple proved that it's another selling point for a handset. With people relying on their phones for music, videos, tv, etc. one can only expect that they will receive a quality pair of headphones with their new product. No biggie if BB10 phones aren't released with the best. I spend way too much time listening to music to not have a great pair of in-ear buds, over-ear headphones, wireless headphones, that would greatly suffice.Z10 Owner...it's about time

Re: The Headphones... ?
This is all relative. If you are playing lossy mp3 Files, regular headphones are fine. for most people regular headphones are fine. for others, wanting a more nuanced experience, even on their phone, there aremany secondary market alternatives that are much better. if you are happy with what you get with your phone, more power to you. me, I'll stick with my Westone 3's. Love em!!!!

The best OEM headphones (ear buds) that RIM released were with the Bold 9000, I used thoes for about 5 years even after I upgraded my phone...until one day one of them died and I was so sad...went out and bought a very nice pair of Sony earbuds...not quite as good even with a $40 price tag....let's hope RIM does something good with BB10 in this department.Talk is cheap because supply exceeds demand.

Like look. I'm not saying throw in super expensive headphones that will jack up the price of the phone. but some serious effort should be put in to provide comfort. or what the **** is the point. they might as well throw in 50 bucks so i could go purchase some decent headphones myself.~εrin

I actually love the buds that come with the 9900, comfortable and nice to wear, the Bold 9000 buds SUCKED a$$... very uncomfortable and I have small ears, and they fell out every 2 seconds until I jammed them in my ear and they would take 2min to fall out...
So i hope the buds with the phones are decent

Beats are horrible?? That's the first time i ever heard that. They are indeed overpriced, but the sound quality are top notched. If only they have sweet wireless bluetooth headphones that are good price,
I would totally buy them while working out.
