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...
bummy, 27 Jun 2008Walkman phones COMES WITH FREE sony ericsson headphones. Which imo is better quality than any ... moreSE's earphones STINK just like the iPod earphones!
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!
i dont think 3.5 audio jack is important.
i just doesnt make sense.
i see nokia'a advertisement on their xpress music lineup and they keep it in mind that it has a 3.5 mm audio jack.
like is that the only advantage they see over the superior walkman series of sony, which they keep on copying.?
i couldnt agree u. If SE walkman series are the best music phones, then why it is not compatible with the powerful sennheisser or bose headphones. Nokia is always great and full of innovation. It marks its throne to the music.
its superd modile ,fine in looks n as if filp moblie are always good inuse
anyways nice mobile
keep on SonY EricSiOn
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2008you have 8 gigs of memory...why u need a memory card??a memory card can save pictures and videos. if this phone fall or got wet...all your memories will be history...
SE rep came in with one of these the other week. Had a good play with it, quality phone.
Sound quality is excellent, buttons feel good and phone doesn't seem so thick in real life.
this phone really cool...3.5 mgpixelsis enuf...
the sound thumbs up!!!
i've seen this 2 days ago...at the promotion ceremony...
no auto-focus, no flash, pretty fat at 16.9mm, no expansion slot.
What is SE thinking..might as well dont built the camera in.but still one heck of a sexy machine

What I found even weirder was, about 2 months before the W960's release, there were people on the forums trying to SELL them! Ah well, I guess anybody daft enough to be suckered in deserves it...
I don't understand how some of you are saying the sound of the phone sucks compared to other phones, especially since none of you have even heard the sound quality...
Come to think of it, the seats on the new NSX sucks compared to the ones on an Accord. The car hasn't been released yet, but what the hell, I know because I know...
