Default Dumb Question-8820 Stereo?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 3 week old 8300 and I'm considering exchanging it for an 8820. I know I lose the camera, but was hoping to keep the media player as on the 8300. The 8820 comes with a mono 2.5 mm earbud, but is said to be "stereo capable". Can someone confirm that 2.5mm stereo sets work/sound okay?

I've been able to use a stereo 2.5mm headset on my 8800--sound was actually very good. I had to go get the stereo headset, though; the standard headset was a one-ear version (and thus was of course mono).

I was happy with the sound on my 8800, it sounds similar to this one (I'm using an 8320 right now) it really depends on your purpose I only used mine in the nail salon once a week to drown out their muzak.
