Never gonna sound as good as a decent set of wired headphones but no bluetooth headset will.
To those replying to SE Owner, granted the phone can use any headphone using the adaptor its just annoying to actually have to use one though... most music phones allow direct connection to the phone without using one. By now Sony should have allowed the same, that feature and the camera focus + flash is the only gripes I will have with this phone. But I'll still buy it in a second, and just use bluetooth headphones.

Walkman series bundled headphones comes in two peices. In which you can plug in any 3.5mm into it. Which means, you can support a microphone with any of your listed earphones.
Secondly, you're comparing FREE cellphone earphones, with ones you have to pay $100-$300. Why don't you start off by actually owning a SE phone first, mr."SE owner". And then compare it with its competitors' products (mobile phones).
I think this phone is off the hook.....It is a new device which I would be hoping to lay my hands on pretty soon

But, You being a "SE owner" as your title says, should already know that.....
"considering the high cost!!" ?
Prices haven't been released yet. Please.... Please be more educated before you start bashing a product.

All the walkman earphones have a 3.5mm adaptor BUILT IN! See that little black plug halfway along the length of the cable? The SE headphones unplug from that and you can plug in any earphones you want. If SE were trying to milk people for money they'd have the phone compatible with on official SE headphones and they wouldn't bundle them with the phones. Think before you speak...

Other earphones like those from Shure, Etymotics, etc... are much bettter in quality.
Unfortunately, SE uses their proprietary "plug" which forces uses to buy a 3.5mm adapter for regular head/earphone that makes the phone unwieldy, cumbersome and just more costly to use!
SE does that because it's their "cash cow" and brings them lots of MONEY!
I wish they had one with only 4gb and cheaper...and Auto Focus is something they should include in Walkman phones. I've always used SE as my favourite (now also Nokia and Samsung)but it is not the best as it used to be.Too many models, none with all I -and lots others- need.
Why more megapixels with no AF? Higher price, right?
Still, I am interested ina really good walkman...hope this one does not deceive me.
very nice high-end phone sleek and slim,only problem is the camera is rubbish no flash no autofocus also its a shiny phone which is good foor looks but its a fingerprint leaving nightmare.
SE forces people to buy a 3.5mm adapter to use the music player since SE uses their Proprietary plug in their phones for charging and their own earphones!
SE's own earphones are terrible when compared to other headphones like Shure, Etomyics, etc... If SE's own earphones are good, then the iPod's earphones are also good, which it is NOT!!
This is a Walkman phone so why can't SE use the industry standard 3.5mm port?
Simple, it's SE's cash cow by Forcing people to buy an SE 3.5mm adapter to use their own headphones!!
Phone has no Wifi or Autofocus or flash but ... it's not suppose to. It's a Walkman phone whose primary purposes are the telephone and music player!
The phone looks great in its styling but its functionality and features should be questionable considering the high cost!!
May not even buy another SE phone!
