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 !

Greets All,

I was Christmas shopping in Office Depot this evening and I found an additional solution to the ones listed above. This particular solution is a pair of stereo headphones from HP. I went over and paid my 2.5 cents per copy to make photocopies of the bubble pack front and back because I couldn't immediately discern what the part number was.

Basically they are simply a pair of normal stereo earphones, (earbuds), with a 90 degree 1/8" (3.5mm)female to 3/32" (2.5mm) male adapter included right in the bubble pack. I had the manager scan the price for me and he said it sold for $9.99. I didn't actually buy it because I had already ordered the adapters from Siedo mentioned earlier in this thread. I obviously can't vouch for their sound quality but other than including the adapter they look fairly run-of-the-mill. For $9.99 it seems a good value regardless of the quality if low end earbuds don't bother you too much.

Here's every word of what appears on the package:

It is probably reasonable to assume since they are manufactured by Belkin that Belkin would have the same product available under their name plate also. Hopefully this has given you some place to start Googling from at any rate.

Seidio changed the product code and hence the link is now outdated.
