Thanks

I have no idea, they should work, I've just ordered ones to try it out. (With a discount code SHOWSP09 - 50% off - thanks to moviemogul). I will post my thoughts about them, when i get them.

Just got my Z-buds, tried them out with my Curve, work like a charm. I love them.

Gonna try them tomorrow on my way to work. :D

I have spoke to the good people at Zagg, and although the Z-buds were initially desinged to interface with the iPhone, they should work with all media capable BlackBerrys.

I have previously used mid-level sure earphones (non-mobile phone) on an iPod, and I would say the Z-buds have better sound quality and are more comfortable for me. I also like the cable finish of the Z-buds.

I know there are better versions of the shure buds, and they may in fact be better than the Z-buds. Staying in the comparative price range, the Z-buds win out.

On a comparable note (since the track functions do not work fully), the Monster Turbine ear-buds are excellent, as are the VModa ear-buds.

Yes, the volume and the Pause/Play toggle does work.
