yes SHH9700 is an inear earphone or canalphone.

Just consult with the vendor or service center personnel. I'm not sure if everything will work. All you gotta worry about is whether the remote control and volume control would work. Since the headset comes in two pieces, it can easily accomodate any earphone with a 3.5mm pin. So my advice would be to get bot.
I don't think LG's buds if at all they have one would come close to the quality of professional earphone brands like sony and philips canalphones.
Philips SHH9700 is made specially for nokia xpress misic phones and comes with two piece cord. So you can easily detach the buds and connect it to the usb headset. this way, you can enjoy the goodness of both worlds.
Well this phone accepts cards formatted using FAT32 file system. But it just cannot read cards with microSDHC profile which comes as standard in cards of 4GB and above. If somehow the firmware has the particular provisions, then it could easily support a 4GB card.
Themes are proprietary and is platform dependent for a particular brand. So far, the most popular ones are developed for nokia and sonyericsson (their theme, their platform). So unless LG comes up with something like that, themes support is something you would least expect anytime soon.

I guess I owe you an apology for judging too soon. Well that fact is, I was not aware of the burn in process needed before listening to a new pair of earphones. I did 100 hours of burn in and now it is starting to sound better and better. Now i think it deserves an appreciation for it is worth the price now.
And BTW are you sure it is available at 900? Oh... spent 1500 on it. And i'm guessing it is authentic philips.

1. I need a headsets which is really good fr hearing but then i shud be able to attend calls, control volume and it shud have music control keys. It shud have ear buds for bass effect.
2. What was that adapter thing? Can u elaborate a bit? I mean if i get a seinheiser headsets, how can i do the foll task mentioned in point 1.

Have a look at them and kindly opine, and FYI the KM900 aka "Arena" does have in ear headsets but could find if the headsets hade music control keys. Here r the respective links.

If you want earphones with good audio quality then go for earbuds frm philips, sony, sennheiser or creative. These are not headsets and hence they do not come with a mic, you will have to use adapters with mic or with remote(for playback control). The adapter can be connected to your phone and the earphone can be connected to adapter. Don't know if these sort of things are available for LG, its available for Nokia.
If you can get your hands on an N85/5800XM's headset then check whether the remote works on GM200's 3.5mm jack. It works for 5130XM.

I will check it out and then buy it, but for first tell me will those headsets fit in the GM200 slot? And do they have "in ear" buds. And will the music control keys work? Thats the ultimate question.
And this anonymous is saying that the philiphs headsets are available for 900INR? So whats ur opinion? Which one would be better the LG headsets what ur telling or the philiphs? I know its a subjective question but still!
Plz have a look at my previous post regarding the firmware updates that need to be rectified on the GM200! Plz draft a mail with other added minute things Bro.
1.I think the GM shud be expandable to 4GB.
2. File extensions shud be possible themes.

physiovinayak, 09 Jan 2010Hi Nevi- Thx for the suggestion. Just clear my ultimate doubt regarding the good headsets. ... moreOne more thing.... There is a usb headset available for LG phones. it's mostly meant for high end phones like Arena. It comes with all the above stuff you need like volume control, play/pause, next-prev and a hold button. I saw one on ebay and it listed as 850rs. i've checked the pin and it seems t be the same. So just check it out if you are interested.
physiovinayak, 09 Jan 2010Hi Nevi-
Thx for the suggestion. Just clear my ultimate doubt regarding the good headsets. ... moreWell i'm not an expert on earphones. the most expensive I could afford is my Philips SHH9700 earphones. So I can only make suggestions based on entry level earphones.
Sony is best suited for bass addicts. Whichever class you choose, Sony is best rated for its heavy bass. But you will be missing some detailing on the mid and high frequencies. Overall, its good for long periods of listening and won't fatigue your ears.
Philips earphones are good too, i'd recommend the SHH9700. Costs much morethan the Sony MDR-ED12LP but the sounds are all balanced and gives you good noise isolation as it is a canalphone. Bass is good but not as deep as sony.
I can't tell anything about USB earphones. If you can find one with volume controls, also check if the earphones can be detaches as in walkman earphones. That way, even if the SQ is low, you can easily replace it with a good pair. If you spend a bit more, you can get a 3.5mm pin earphones with volume controls.
The budget ones cost in the rande of 300-350. They are good though. Dont remember the model no. It's got replaceable caps of different colours. It is available in black and white. the white ones look exactly like ipod earphones. The SQ is ok. Kind of like Sony but with moderate bass and you can hear slight distortions with low bit mp3 or heavy music.
Unlike many reviews, Sony's entry level earphones are pretty good but the treble and mids appear to be too soft sometimes. I'd say for the price of 790, it is definitely worth the money.
And BTW i'm plannin on gettina new pair of Sony MDR-EX85SL earphones for 1100 from ebay. It's worth morethan 3500. I'm a bit sceptical whether it is a genuine sony product. Anyway I have already placed the order and expecting it within a week. Will let you all know about it. The seller promised me that it is an OEM product. I just find it too good to be true. So anyway, i'm keeping my fingers crossed for this. My next pair is gonna be a Shure SE530 (just kidding - it is one bloody expensive pair of earphones). You can buy a motorbike for the price of that killerphone.

Thx for the suggestion. Just clear my ultimate doubt regarding the good headsets. What should i go for?
1. Sony Headsets.
3. Usb headsets with volume and music control keys. I am on the look for these specifically. But my ain query is wil the music control headsets work on gthe GM200? or should they work?
4. What was the price of the budget headsets in philips u were talking about in the earlier post?
At this point i am almost confirmed with the sony headsets. :)
I saw an option for LG GM200 BRIO as well on mobile9 site while searching for games. Wonder whats extra in the BRIO :o.
@ The GM GURU's
Here is the list of firmware issues that i would like to be rectified in the next firmware updates.
1. Games or application can be accessed while mp3 is playing in the background. I mean both shud be running simultaneously.
2. Whenever a msg is received while accessing a game/app, there shud be the display of the msg without the vibration, but rather the msg tone. One shud be able to reply to the msg then and there and after that the game/app can be resumed.
Is the same problem encountered while using the camera???
3. While we back up the contacts and then restore it, only the first no is restored. In the sense if more than two nos are allocated to a person, the second does not get backed up. This shud be resolved.
4. I wonder if we store a contact picture, does the pic get displayed if msg is receieved from that no?
5. Volume control keys shud work while the keypad is locked. I mean if this fone is made for music then ideally it shud be the norm!
Plz guys draft a really effective letter so that LG guys take a look at these issues and fix them right ASAP.
Cheers and Regards!

physiovinayak, 08 Jan 2010Philiphs headsets how much do de cost? and do they have volume controls or music control keys?... morePhilips have a very wide range of eraphones. I've tried quite a number of them. the problem with low end philips earphones is that they tend to break easily. Now I own a philips SHH9700 IEM canal phones. it's great for my GM200. It needs atleast 100 hours of burn in to really show it's potential. It costs around 1500INR. So if you have that much to spend, then this is a great choice. The sounds are balanced on all frequencies.
Well regarding gmaes, try to get games having screen size of 176x220 pixels. Most SE K750i games and applications should work just fine.
Screen sizes are sometimes automatically adjusted for applications like Opera Mini.
Opera Mini, E-Buddy, mig33, UC Web, Bolt Browser, Tea Shark, G mail app, Google Maps, RSS reader, Oxford Mini Dictionary, etc... these are some of my essentials list.
Some high end earphones with noise cancellation feature comes with dedicated volume keys but these things are very expensive costing morethan 3000rs.
usb headsets with music keys might work if you can find one.
The above listed applications are certified apps and would work on any GM200. if it doesn't, then it is something concerning the phone rather than the app.
