    Hey all,

    First things first, I just got my Storm! Yayyy! Really really excited to finally have it. It's the 19xxx build, but the quality still seems pretty good, though I can tell one side of the screen is "spongier" to the push than the other, but it still functions just the same. Other then that, amazing phone!

    Now, on to the actual purpose of my post. When I was watching the various unboxing and review videos while waiting for my phone, they all seemed to be packaged with the RIM Premium earbuds (the ones that come with the Bold), however upon opening my box, I was quite disappointed to find the standard hard plastic ones. Were the premiums thrown into those review boxes just for the journalists, or was it actually supposed to come with them and I just missed out?

    Thanks! (And yes, I did a search, but I couldn't find anything on this particular topic, mostly just "What earbuds do you use?" posts)

    Well on one hand, its reassuring to see that I'm not the only one with the standard 'buds, on the other...I'm sad to see the premium ones were just for the demo/review Storms. I had my hopes that since the Storm is the Verizon flagship BB, that it would ship with the same ones packaged with the Bold (the premiums), since it's AT&T's flagship.

    Oh well, I'll just keep using my Shures. =P Thanks for the help all!

    ... I got my Storm yesterday.

    I got the premium ones. The standard one came with my pearl last year.

    I tried both because I was really impressed by the look of the premium one.

    The premium hearphones comes with 3 different soft 'buds' to fit your ears perfectly.

    The main thing his the sound (doh) although the standard one played just ok. The new hearphones have some bass. The sound is more crispier.

    The play pause button actually work really really good and if you hold the play button here comes the voice dialing feature.

    I'm not trying to rub this in...

    I got the standard ones too. Now I really want the premiums.

    Wonder how many people will send back good storms till they get back one with premiums in it.

    Just joking. Please do not do this. lol

    I got the standard ones with mine (as well as the two replacements sent). Don't care. I have Shure's, but don't use them much. Believe it or not, the best ear buds I have used in a LONG time are some "cheap" ($15) Philips ones. They have the soft, moldable ear plugs that seal out any noise and the equalizer is awesome in them. They are also very comfortable to wear for long periods of time. I can even sleep in the car with them on and I can't do that even with my Shures.

    The headphones that came with the Storm are not all that bad other than the size. They are HUGE! I don't have small ears, and when I wedge these things in it makes my ears hurt.

    I wonder how much those premium ones are.
