Default Where can I get a single earpiece headset?

Please Login to Remove!

The one in the box is dual ear and all my old ones from my 7230,7290 and 8700 don't work! The plug is bigger.
Thanks

This is a good question, I do not like having the extra earbud flapping around when I am talking on the phone. It is nice they included an earbud but it is a bit to cubersome with three wire ends flapping around.

If anyone knows of a "one earplug" headset that will fit the new, larger, plug for the 8300 please chime in!

Just get a plug adapter from some place like Radio Shack and use your old ones. Or the larger connector and replace the smaller one on your old ones. The adapter is the easy way to go.

then you have a long piece of hard plastic sticking out due to the size of the adapter plus the plug from the earpiece. It would work but not a great solution. I worry about that grabbing and breaking the port due to the additional leverage provided by the hard plastic sticking out.

Thanks

Jabra C250

Jabra does not yet recognize the Curve, and since I have bluetooth in all of my cars (some OEM some Parrot) I rarely would use a corded unit. BUT I have found the jabra products to be the best. It is safe to assume a single will be available soon. Someone who is handy could probably remove and replace the endplug.

If you are being serious, I will respond. I like the stereo headphones, just not during normal use.

This doesn't work... I tried it. It seems that the 3.5mm jack on the Curve is wired differently.
