Four New Seidio Hybrid Headphones for your Treo

As I’ve mentioned repeatedly before, I love listening to music on my Treo.  My most trusted and essential gear for this is the combination of Pocket Tunes Deluxe and Magic Button on the software front with the Seidio 2–in-1 Headphones, Shield Holster secured to my hip and at least a 1GB SD Card on the accessories front.

As I do often, the other day I was walking in the street listening to one of my favourite tunes when I received a call.  The music stopped playing automatically as my Treo was ringing and I pressed the ‘Answer Button’ on the headphones to take the call.  While I continued to walk, I had a 10 minutes conversation via the built-in microphone on the headphones after which my music conveninently resumed playing where it had left off.

At this point, the thought occurred to me that if I had been listening to music with a separate MP3 player I would likely have missed the call since my music would probably have been blasting above the sound of my Treo ringing.  At best I would have had the hassle to remove the headphones from the MP3 player in order to answer the call.

Thanks to my Treo music gear however I can conveniently switch from listening to music to making or taking a call in an instant – just one more reason why I envisage that my Treo will continue to be my preferred MP3 music player for the foreseeable future…

Now, to further help Treonauts’ music listening experiences, Seidio has recently released four new hybrid 2–in-1 headphones (Isolator, Earbud, Over-the-Ear and Foldable) as well as a new 2.5mm adapter (all pictured in order below) which will all work with both the Treo 650 and Treo 700w.

The main change across all headphones and the adapter compared with the previous model is a redesigned much smaller microphone casing (image below right) now in black with a silver button with dual front and back microphone openings.  Overall these new headphones have a much more elegant and modern design.

Naturally everyone will have their preferred choice in terms of which of the four headphones to choose.  I personally continue to prefer the Retractable 2–in-1 Earbud Headphones whose sound quality and volume have now been further improved to deliver what feels like up to 50% louder music.

My other choices would be either the more expensive Retractable Isolator or the Retractable 2–in-1 Adapter which I would use with a pair of existing headphones that I own – I always choose the retractable models because I love not having the cable mess in my pocket and I can plug and listen quickly instead of having to waste my time untaggling wires.

Don't buy these earphones I've had two pairs fail within 6 months, Treonauts said:-

"Hello -

You are outside of our 90 day retail warranty. Please contact Seidio for help with this item:"

Sedio said
"This is just a notification to let you know that we have received your email inquiry. You should expect a response within 1 to 2 business days. During times of high volumes, our turnaround time may take up to 3 days, but this is not a common occurance. Our office hours are between 9:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through"

I called them and told I had used the wrong email address, so I email that address and still no answer. These emails were sent in June 2006!

Both headsets were cheaply made, and developed broken wires by the jack.

As Mark, I had a similar experience with Seidio head sets that I bought through shop.treonauts.com. These Seidio headsets did not hold up well at all. Cheaply made.

Update regards the headset I did manage to get in contact with Seidio and they have sent a new headset. The lady informed that they have had a lot of problems with the retractable models and that it was best to get a non-retractable version.

So in summary:-

== get the Non-Retractable version.
== Don't bother emailing Seidio call them (I used Skype Out).

Anybody know if these ones will work with the Softik Audio Gateway?
