Palm 2 in 1 Stereo Headset Pro Review

Since its release in our store a few weeks ago the Palm 2 in 1 Stereo Headset Pro has rapidly become the #1 bestselling Treo headset.  On the one hand this is probably because at only $29.95 it is nearly half the price of both Palm’s MSRP and Seidio’s competing 2 in 1 In-Ear Isolator Headphones and on the other hand also because it simply happens to be excellent and beautifully designed headset.

The Palm 2 in 1 Stereo Headset Pro offers two high performance earpieces (detail above right and below) offering soft in-ear silicon tips to keep unwanted sound out and maximize comfort while minimizing “ear fatigue” –  just push them into your ear and they’ll stay very snugly in place.  Thanks to the design of the earpieces the sound is both very loud and very clear – it’s like a “music chamber” in your ears.

An omni-directional microphone, Answer/End button, Mute switch and Volume control are all conveniently built into a high quality oval shaped casing on the cord (below) about ten inches below the earpieces.

Although I don’t consider that the Palm 2 in 1 Stereo Headset Pro is an ideal replacement for a good Treo Bluetooth headset (such as my preferred Jawbone) for daily conversations it is nonetheless the perfect solution if like me you enjoy listening to music while on the go and want to ensure that you can still quickly and easily answer a call thanks to its built-in microphone.

Well did I miss something. How about the quality of the sound? I got a Treo 680, it does not support Bluetooth 2.0 so all my choices are around wired headphones. Sound quality is inportant to me, any comments ????

Sound quality? It sucks....Looks much better than it sounds.

I thought sound quality on these was much better than the Seidio ones I had previously. I've been very happy with both looks and sound, but always thought that both looks and sound quality was subjective so your milage may vary ...

The problem I have with them is they worked great in my old 650, but only have left channel with my new 750. I haven't been able to figure out why.

I had an adapter for my 650 for music and phone and ended up with my phone screen going blank during a call. At this point in the phone call, I could not hear the caller until I hit a button to bring the screen back. A pain when the phone is in a pocket! My concern was that I would hang up on the caller! In regards to the Sedio and this new Palm ear buds, have there been any issues like this that anyon is aware of? Thanks for any input.

I thought the 680 would work with Bluetooth 2.0 if you download the Softick Audio Gateway. No???

I have the Seido adapter that I use with regular earphones and the sound is great. I bought the Seido earphones hoping they would be more convenient, but the sound is awful - big waste of money. Sounds like these are a little better, but not the solution. Why is it so hard to make a good sounding pair of these?

I had just got mine tonight and at first I thought they were a bust. Turns out a soft reset fixed it and they sound very decent.

The sound quality is great. I've stopped using my iPod and are using my Treo 680, this headset and PocketTunes 4 instead. With a good eq setting the sound is rich and full in my opinion.

The only thing I would like to change is to move the microphone closer to the mouth. In noisy environments I must hold the mic close to my mouth to be heard during phone calls.

Apart from that I can only recommend it.

I lost a silicon tip. Any idea where I can buy just the tips. Works without it, but not nearly as comfortable.

Where are the sound specs? I work with audio on a professional level. I paid about than $20.00 for my well rated Sennheiser earbuds that I use with my iPod loaded with higher bitrate audio files, to compensate for crappy mP3s and other audio formats. I would consider these Palm branded earbuds for my Treo if they weren't presented in typical palm gimmick fashion. Priced at $30, I deserve more, than the vague "the perfect solution".
