    Something feels familiar

    Its Sony Ericsson.

    As the pictures on the phone show its Sony Ericsson. Not Sony.

    And...

    as usual, there seems to be the standard non-standard headphone jack.

    an 1.8" jack should not be that difficult to engineer into something like this.

    at the very least include an adapter for a standard headphone jack.

    i guess if i made (or handed to as the case may be) as much as paris hilton, then it wouldn't bother me to buy a pair of expensive headphones that don't sound as good as the ones i currently own.

    Headphones...

    And you've tried them, obviously.

    2 Points.

    1. Yes - the obligatory non standard connection is annoying but you have to bear in mind that that one connection has to deal with multiple inputs and outputs including headphone, charging, data transfer etc.

    Maybe you'd like a standardised headphone socket, charging socket and a mini USB socket on your phone, making it look like the back of a laptop, but I don't.

    2. You can plug any 3.5 mm headphone into the proprietary control cable.

    Get over yourself ;)
