Default Anyone use Premium earbuds?

Please Login to Remove!

I was thinking about getting something like this for use with my 8130 pearl. I like to listen to music on my BB when I'm skiing, and earbuds fit better under my helmet. The external controls would also be helpful so that I can select music without having to opwn my jacket.

Blackberry Source.com - BlackBerry Premium Multimedia Headset, 3.5mm

My quesiton is this: does anyone know / have experience with using these phones with the 81XX pearl phones? The Ad recommends OS 4.6, but I'm running OS 4.5.89.

Do you think that they'll be compatible?

That's really great Tommy, but it doesn't answer my original question:

Do these earbuds work with the Pearl? Will the in-line controls work on an 8130 running OS 4.5.89?

Are there any multi-berry users try this out and let me know?

I'm giving this a bump, in the hope that someone who got a storm for Xmas can try their earbuds with a Pearl.

I have the premium headset and don't like them. They don't stay in my ears. When I had the BlackBerry Sound-Isolating Headset, 2.5mm for my 8800 it fit perfectly.
