Does anyone know of a headset/headphones which have volume and/or track control incorporated in them.

The European 8100 is delivered with a very simple set, basically only incorporating a button to connect / disconnect a call.

Many thanks.

the US release is the same. it came with a generic earbud with silver button to connect/disconnect calls; was greatly disappointed.

I have been using the Seidio 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter that allows me to hook up any of my 3.5mm headphones to the Pearl.

One of my headphones has a sliding volume control on the cable. It works perfect when used with the Seidio adapter.

doesn't the razr v3 come with a usb headset and not a 2.5mm headset like the 8100 requires? maybe i'm partially retarded, but i tried it (since i replaced the v3 with the pearl) and it didn't work for me. how did you get it to work?

do you have a model #?

so they don't pair directly to the Pearl's Bluetooth right? they have a seperate Bluetooth adaper that hooks up to the Pearl's headphone/headset jack?

I wondered that same thing. Can you directly pair them to the Pearl's BT and get stereo sound for mp3s? I didn't think the Pearl supported BT stereo.

1. cuz they are $60 and 2. Don't you have to have a large bulky adapter plugged into the 2.5mm jack for those to work?

sounds like my old USB headphones from my Razr would be the best bet since I can listen to my MP3 and receive my calls all in the same headset....i never thought to try that...gonna give it a try now. Thanks

the profile required to allow the bT to directly pair with stereo BT headphones and play music from the phone is currently not supported. (A2DP) i for one am sincerely hoping there is an update for that at some point.
