Stereo Headphones
 
Has anyone else found that the headset jack is a little "crappy" on the 8800. When I listen to music I have to move the jack around to get decent sound.

Was your unit made in Canada? I've heard of and experiencd for myself issues with the Canadian manufactured units. I have heard of people having issues with "creaks" on the upper corners. Myself, I had a unit that was randomly rebooting - I exchanged it the day after I bought it, and the new (Mexican made) unit works just fine. I have heard that the Mexican and Chinese units do not creak.
As a proud Canadian, I am quite disheartened by the poor build quality of Canuck units. It makes sense though - our labour costs more, so the Canadian manufacturing plants may be cutting costs in the QA dept.

Nope -- no problem with my headset jack.

Really? No problem?

I've tried several ways to get stereo sound out of my 8800 media player. There was an adapter at Radio Shack that someone had suggested (google search) but it only had 3-conductors. That didn't work. Then I ordered a Seidio Standard Audio Adaptor for BlackBerry 8800. The description for that said that it was to adapt stereo earbuds to the 8800, but the result was still one channel only.

I know that RIM sells a stereo earbud, but I'd prefer to have an adapter so that I could use noise-cancelling headset and also connect to a receiver/amp.

What really works?

Did you follow Seidio's instructions to plug the headset into the adapter, then plug the adapter into the 8800? If you didn't, you get mono.

the headset port I find is very very stiff

I'll be damned! That worked!

I don't remember any instructions with it, but I may be mistaken. I really didn't think to look for instructions for an adapter.

Ha, as usual RTFM... I didn't even think to mention that as I've been doing that from day one with my adapter.

The jack is a bit stiff and you do have to make sure it's fully inserted but it should be pretty obvious if you're not inserting it all the way.
