As for headphones, I'd definitely wait until it comes out and see what's included. The newer Pearls are shipping with stereo headphones. I got one of the originals and it only came with the standard phone headset.
My Pearl came with the stereo headphones. They are NOT good. For one thing, the split of the wiring is not 50/50 right and left. One side is much longer and has the mic on it, the other is short. It looks ridiculous.
The sound quality was not very good at all, cutting in and out between left and right ears. I'm looking for a small adapter or some headphones I can "just use" with my Pearl.
