Anyone else have issues with the headphones quality on the Z10
Headphone quality is very poor, since the 9700 series my headphones never last....i've had the zed10 for just over a month and my headphones stopped working, and 50% of my phone use is music

Is this really an issue? I mean most ear buds you get with phones are crap anyways. I would rather not get them at all. We have many pairs hanging around our house and most are crap. Besides the trend has been to big headphones like Beats which are crap as well with their overblown and bloated bass passing for good sound. More smoke and mirror marketing that people just accept. Headphones given with phones and quality are two words that do not go together in the same sentence. How many people ditch the enclosed headphones for bluetooth ones anyways? Never going to keep everyone happy. mp3 music and cheap headphones with phones = crappy sound anyways!!!

I have not used the headphones included with a BlackBerry smartphone since the BlackBerry 8820 I think was the model.
I currently use the JayBird BlueBuds X to listen to music on my BlackBerry Z10, BlackBerry PlayBook and Apple iPod Nano. For voice calls I use the Jawbone.

I actually used a lot the headphones that came with my 8310, those were pretty good, I still have the ones that came with the 9860 in the box so I can't say anything about those, and none came with the Z10 so... Although I hate that they didn't include the holster :@

For those of you having headphone issues, I have put together a thread with some great 3rd party headphones recommendations in my "Z10 Audiophile" thread. Have a read...

Personally, I never use headphones that come with phones anyways, no matter what brands, they always package really horrible ones.

No company gives you good headphones with a cellphone now a days. Not going to get beats quality when 90% of the population have their own quality pair already.
Even the headphones with the iphone 5 sucked. Headphones are a waste of money to include anyways most people never use them, and stay in the box.

I have a pair of premium BlackBerry headphones that I bought online and the sound is spectacular. I'm not sure what they are called but they are buds with a logo on both the left and right ear bud.

I didn't even try the headphones that came with them.. I did have an extra pair of headphones that came with an iphone 5.
Man do they work well. They are the first headphones i've been able to use while snowmobiling that a) block most of the wind noise and b) allows me to hear the words and hear the base .. That and the remote on the wires works well when stopped and talking to my friends riding with me.--- Sent From Mobile Device While on the Can! ---

The only earphones from BlackBerry that have been good were the ones that came with the Bold 9000 on at&t. They had removable ear gels depending on the size of your ear and were of great quality.
T-Mobile didn't even give earphones with the Z10.
One upside to this earphone stuff is that earphones that earphones "made for iPhone" (like my Bose iMe2i ones) work with the Z10, INCLUDING the Volume Control, which previously didn't work on my 9810, 9900, and on my PlayBook. Not sure what the difference is with the Z10, but I was pleasantly surprised when I tried them out and I could Mute my mic on a call, and use the Volume buttons.Sean
