In philips the SHH900 costs 1499INR precisely and here is the link for the headphones compared who are within 1000INR mark..
Hope this helps..
Now i have a doubt.. can a connector be found which has a 3.5mm jack and a 3.5mmjack on the other end.. Is there a possibility?

Is it bett... moreYes they are definitely better than the ED12 but as is the case with most plugin type earphones, the spec makes me think that it will suffer from low audio output and a tighter but plain bass. But still if you haven't listened to an ED12, then you wouldn't have anything to complain as it would sound perfect thanks to the greater frequency response and balanced sound.

The only disadvantage is that they come with small speaker driver so the bass is tight but lacks depth and the low frequencies are not that much defined. They also tend to fatigue the ears if you are not used to wearing them. The output will also be much lower so you have to pump up the volume to get the desired output.
other than that most high end earphones that are available in the market today are inear plugin type. Except for the sony's ex monitor which combines the isolation provided by the earplugs with the better soundstage provided by the bigger driver.
That is exactly what i have ordered from ebay.

Set the resolution to 1024x768 if you want full zooming support. Works on 640x480 pics as well. In jpeg quality settings, unmark the transfer EXCIF data option and this should make the pics fully compatable for viewing on the phone.

But I am not so sure about the earbuds that come with those. I have personally used them. its the HPM-70 or 72 I think. The audio quality is not upto the mark when compared with the philips inear buds.

Can i buy any of the SE Bluetooth headsets, which have muzic and volume control keys. That way i can attend calls as well.
What are the specifications i shud look for the bluetooth headsets that can be compatible with the GM200?
I had been to a SONY exclusive showroom and that fellow only said that the MDR-ED12LP costs 990INR?????? bHe showed me the qoutation as well. Comes in black and other girly colors. The black is more sturdy design wise.

BTW I would suggest not to got for cheap chinese copies.
I had bought a copy of MDR-EX700 earphone for 250Rs frm local shop(original costs arnd 15K according sonystyle website). It had excellent bass and good audio quality, audio quality still no way near SHH9700. But the problem was, left side stopped working after 2 weeks thanks to my rough handing.
Now if you choose to go for philips earbuds and the shopkeepers lets you check it before buying it, most probably you will be very dissapointed with its performance. There was no bass. But i decided to take the risk and bought it coz i had read in some reviews that some philips earbuds requires 50 hrs burnin before giving good audio output.
After reaching home i gave it another try and it sounded a lot better with good bass. Previously I got low bass coz i didnt get a proper seal with my ear. Unlike some of the sony earphones philips earbuds requires a good seal with the ear to give you good bass. Audio quality will improve further as you go on using it.
And one more thing never buy it for Rs1499 frm a local shop. If they ask you to pay MRP then buy it frm philips dealers. Remember you are buying it frm local shops so that you get it cheap and if they dont give it for cheaper price then go to an authorised dealer. Same in case of sony.
Rahul Barbhuiya , 13 Jan 2010Hey Nevin, I m also v v v v big fan of LG GM200 Phone like you!!!!!!!!!......I'm very glad to hear that mate.... Things were quite different back here a few months ago. I don't feel lonely here anymore.

Sony MDR-ED12LP current price is 790Rs and not 990.
Philips SHH9700 if you can get it for 900 is the best value for money.
Coming to the audio performance,
Sony is 'inear' buds. Better bass performance, high audio output, bigger driver for bass addicts. Looks quite expensive too. As this is inear and not a plugin type, noise isolation is poor especially in busy streets but good for long hours of wearing and does not fatigue the ear. These are best suited for indoor everyday use.
Philips is a 'plug in' type earphone also known as canalphones. Great frequency response, bass is tight but not as deep as sony but still good. Both have great built quality but the philips cord seems robust and is less prone to tangling. Good overall audio quality with balanced sounds in all frequency ranges. Provides good isolation but not recommended for wearing long hours as the ear gets fatigued easily as it is fully enclosed. Output is a bit low due to small driver. But overall great value for money.
My conclusion is both are good. And I use both of them on a daily basis. I use my sony to listen to long hours of music when I'm home. I use my philips mostly during travelling and at bed as it fits nicely without hurting the ear while at bed.
Sony sounds perfect straight out of the box while philips needs atleast 24hours of burnin to get everything settled.
Both have great built quality and unlike my previous low end buds, bot of them show no signs of giving up. Still sounds just as good.
If you can get the philips for 900rs, then that would be a great bonus and I'd recommend philips. But if it costs above 1200, then both are equally matched in terms of quality cost ratio. So it's upto you to decide as it has to do with your purpose.
Try to get sony earphones from an ASC or sony dealer. here in my city, it is available @ 790rs. So make sure you don't get cheated as no dealer can charge morethan this.
Rahul Barbhuiya , 13 Jan 2010Hey Nevin, I m also v v v v big fan of LG GM200 Phone like you!!!!!!!!!......As far as my suggestion goes after discussing extensively regarding the headsets, with value for money are-
1. SE MDR-ED12LP- 990INR
2. Philips SHH9700- 900INR
Just go through the previous 2-3 pages, u can come to a conclusion. Hope this helps.
