i wonder why many people talking bout the headphone which included with the mobile phone? i NEVER use it at all , just bought the phone adapter to 3,5mm and use with your good earphones bought separately (more expensive earphone offcourse more better sound) and the problem is solve. the 3,5mm adapter itself cost only us$ 6 in my country (SE,Nokia,Samsung).
so why must complain about it? the important fact is the phone itself must have good music software and hardware. i think nokia n958gb at this present time still the best music phone, hopefully SE released better music phone because actually i dont like nokia brand to much .

That why I'm using the sony ericsson HPM-70 earphones, attached to the wired remote of my N95. Cheers!!!
I simply love this phone. Got it a couple of days ago and the preferences and specifications that's included are great. A nice and solid phone that you can open and the hatch won't break easily. I also like the opportunity to send photos and posts directly to your blogger-account.
I'm thinking of getting this phone. I love clamshell phones & I love Sony Ericsson. I was thinking of upgrading my handset & getting this one... But I am not sure how you get notified with a text when it's closed?
From my opinion, if the product expect us to use a good headphone, it means that the product is not sure about their audio quality, just my opinion..
Dani , 21 Aug 2008Yeah it is good to upgrade the firmware, but still im not saying Nokia's are bad or anything, ... moreyep i get what u mean were nokia expect u to buy earphones n stuff. They offer symbian OS coz the hardware features run perfectly with the OS and plus multitasking n u can install ur own software and stuff. but one thing does lack on the nokia phones is the music player. i do find walkman player much user friendly.
apparntly in new nseries devices the ui is going to much nicer with full 100% animation throughout the phone coz nokia signed a deal with KASTOR UI.

its just i dont like Nokia's Music Phones, Nokia expects people to buy good earphones! and then they offer Symbian why?
SE gives good earphones in their sales package along with good walkman player software and UI
i respect both companies, but i stick to SE because there Quality
No. I bought my N91 8GB ages back n nokia had promotion offer were they were giving the BOOSE headset free with the N91 8GB. to update firmware easy download nokia software updater n boom no hassle nothing.
trust me sooner or later w980i gona need firmware updating coz dese sony ericssons phone lately are buggy for examle C905, W980i, C902, K850i etc ur inbox gets full n u loose everything coz it dont let u go into ur inbox it comes with error, c902 camera failures n buggy softwares.
its always best to update firmware.
what is wrong with people crying for 3.5mm jack i have been using sony ericsson for more than 4 years but never found necessary to change my walkman head phone. ya sure i did buy HPM-85 but i still dont get man. all you need to 3.5mm jack is to plug your own head phone. and we all know the best headphone manufacturer in market in terms for voice quality is sony ericsson.... and dear friends only nokia need other head phones.... example n95 with its original head phone is crap.... try using HMP 70 on it...... and when you use HPM 85 you will stop using nokia.....
I think this phone is good, but I have just a couple of issues. For one thing it's too long when open, it just looks huge. Another thing is there are no other colour variants, next there's no camera button. And finally you can't do very much with the external screen at all, apart from use the walkman and radio. But apart from that it is a good quality phone.
guys, how can i exclude my ringtones from the walkman player? wen i used w960 it had an option that said "exclude sounds less than 1 mb" which was helpful
I'm new to SE.. but i seen alot of qualities that SE have, i have an NOKIA n93i.. the function is just ok.. but the quality of the sound reallly a problem.. guess i'll get this new SE w980. i Wonder how much is it..?
Shayn, 19 Aug 2008I aint saying Loudness is the key to best audio quality. N91 has superior sound quality. try u... moreguys, there is a 3.5mm audio jack that comes in the box with every walkman phone! u just have to connect it :) btw.. they didnt implement the 3.5 mm jack on the phone coz it will make it look too ugly! take more space. plus their is no need, wether to have a 3.5 or not is optional for us, connected or not? our way :)
Shayn, 19 Aug 2008I aint saying Loudness is the key to best audio quality. N91 has superior sound quality. try u... moreSo Let me get this straight, your paying Nokia all that money for an N91 and then you have spend money for Boose earphones and then upgrade the firmware to improve the 'Sound Quality'
now seriously, id rather not buy it for all that HASSLE!!!
SE Walkman's have GOOD SOUND QUALITY!, and come with Earphones as good as Sennheiser
so Nokia is basically Hassling People LOL!
N81 and w980 with earphones:
3.5mm jack is unneccesary? sure! but with 3.5mm is more comfortably! and with fewer cable ._.
The problem of havent 3.5mm is the stupid fastport, it gets screwed up immediately, at least the one that I have had, fastport is very bad connection and occupies more space, even to hold the mobile.
It is my opinion. Anyhow I have not proved the w980 still! but i hate fastport.
Shayn, 19 Aug 2008I aint saying Loudness is the key to best audio quality. N91 has superior sound quality. try u... moreAt the end of the adaptor cable. Allowing handsfree call handling while using your own earphones. 3.5mm jacks are unneccesary. Why is it that only people who don't like the Walkman phones care aboiut a 3.5mm jack? Most of the people who DO like the Walkman phones don't bother about it. It's like complaining about a lack of wrist-strap eyelet - sure, they're handy but absolutely unneccessary...
I aint saying Loudness is the key to best audio quality. N91 has superior sound quality. try using the N91 4GB with v2.20.008 firmware and N91 8GB with v3.10.023 firmware coz firmware hold the improvements to sound quality.
some1 said sony ericsson earphones are better than Boose. give me a break, boose headphones are far superior to sony ericsson earphones and Sennheiser earphones.
BTW W980i is a music phone wheres the 3.5mm audio jack?
