Simple easy to use headphone adapter for use with the Blackberry media player. I have these coupled together with my Shure headphones and I can tell you audio quality is average. Nothing to write home about for an audiophiles but most users will not be able to tell the difference. Shipping is reasonable and this adaptor is promised to work unlike the adaptors I had previously purchased on eBay.

PLEASE NOTE: I learned the hard way that you need to first plug the headphones into the adapter and then the adapter into the phone before starting the media player. If you do not do this then you will only hear audio through one earphone.

Pros:

  • Works as advertised
  • Decent audio quality
  • Relative sturdyness of jack

Cons:

  • Wire seems a little flimsy
  • They should document the order in which you need to attach the adapter to the phone

    Arrgh! Thank you a zillion times. I’m struggling with this issue for weeks!!!

  2. Yeah who would have thought that they would have built in such a stupid design flaw…

  3. I purchased an adapter at Best Buy which also has a mic and a mute button enabling the use of headphones with the phone.About $15. RIM has done well with the 8830, but there are lots better mp3 players available.
