I got one of the Shure iphone microphone adapters:

Amazon.com: Shure MPA-3C Music Phone Adapter for iPhone: Electronics

You can then plug in any pair of headphones you want (although it will be better if they have a short cable). I also use a pair of Shure headphones.

Since I got my Bold, I have started using it instead of my iPod. So its great when you're commuting you can hear the email/sms notifications and answer calls. In addition, if you have a good pair of in-ear headphones you can hear the other person very clearly - even in a noisy environment.

I have a set of Skullcandy FMj earphones which I bought for my iPhone 3G.
The button works to mute music and answer calls and allegedly they work with the Bold + Curve also but as I haven't got a Bold yet I cannot confirm this.
They do sound awesome though!

Umm I know the iphone head phones work for the curve If I recall correctly. Only $30. So cheap to replace at least. The shure becomes a hassle as you have way way to much slack in my humble opinion
