OK, so here's another "weird" thang. The headphone jack on the SL6000 is a 2.5mm, not a 3.55mm which is the internationally recognized freakin' standard. I guess you could pound it in with a ball peen hammer, which I'm tempted to do, but there is an adapter available. Apparently the Treo 600 uses the same f****d up size, so here's a link to the stupid thing. Aaaarrrggghhhh !

Since I have already lost two adapters I am looking at getting headphones that already have the 2.5mm adapter. These are some of the ones I am looking at:

JAVOeBuds - 2.5mm Retractable Stereo Earphones (black)
Seidio Treo 2-in-1 Over-the-Ear Headset
Seidio Treo 2-in-1 Backphone

I have not got any of these yet but plan to get something around christmas time. If anyone has tried any of these or something like it let me know.
