I'd like to use the Ultimate Ears Metro.fi 200v or the Shure SE210 with MPA-3C adapter, but MSVC is a must. I couldn't find a local dealer who has this earphones for testing.

Cheers

I have not tried the HTC headphones,as they were to big for my ears, will try when I get a chance. I tried the Ultimate Ears Metro Fi 150v, although they have a mike I could only get answer and end call to work not voice dial or MSVC ,so probably the 200v is the same. I have been told today that the Shure MPA-3C adapter will work with Microsoft Voice Control but he did not have the stock rom on his HD(post 15). I may order one and hope for the best. I have also gone for the Shure SE210.

I had the same problem with the stock HTC headset. Try this:

For me the path key didn't exist, so I created it. After the registryhack a long press on the button activates MSVC. Maybe this works for your Metro Fi 150v. If it does it would be nice to know .

For the record, I use Duttys excellent 1.7 GER ROM.

What are you guys talking?!?!?
I've already said, but I say it again... the best wired earphones with built-in microphone are the SENNHEISER MM50 for iphone, they actually work fine on the HD and are fully compatible with the HD. Voice dialling is also supported
If any doubts, what the original earphones from HTC that come with HD does, this one also does.
Main phones:
Motorola CD930 -> Nokia 8210 -> Nokia 3310 -> Nokia 6310 -> Nokia 6310i -> Nokia 7650 -> Nokia 3650 -> SonyEricsson P800 ->
Qtek S200 -> HTC Touch Pro -> (SonyEricsson k800i) -> HTC Touch HD ->HTC Desire HD -> Samsung Galaxy SIII -> Google Nexus 5 (current)

I can't see where you said that they work with MSVD and regarding the hassle I had to make MSVD work at all I feel better much better to know for sure that the headphones I'm going to buy will really work, 'cause I will shell some more EUR for decent inears.

I think I will buy the Shure MPA-3C and maybe go for the higher ranged Shures like the 410. Might be overkill for the Blackstone but I have some other devices with a 3,5mm jack . Still have to find a local dealer where I can compare Shure, UE and maybe some others.

I agree with you that Sennheiser makes some of the finest headphones, but I never liked there inears.

Thanks for your input mate.

I was doing some search and i can only agree with onesolo... a tiny test:

http://www.headphoneinfo.com/content...erformance.htm

Surely sennheiser can be beat down by some other headset but not for its price. Just found one for £25. Btw, there are other reviews there (www.headphoneinfo.com) and well check them out...

I started with Shure but well... MM50 is at this moment way to go.

Quote:
Sennheiser MM 50 iP - This match-up is not in the Shure SE420s favor. The MM 50 iP headphones have better audio quality and are a much better deal than the SE420s. The entire case for the SE420s hinges on isolation and leakage. As you're probably aware if you read this review so far, the SE420s have remarkable isolation and leakage control. If those factors are important to you, the SE420s win hands-down. In all other cases, however, we'd default to the MM 50 iPs

I swear on the Sennheiser MM50 (as someone below mentioned too), try them and see they're awesome and cheaper than the Vmoda ones wich are very good too. If money 'aint a thing' then go vmoda but if you still want class and affordable quality GO Sennheiser MM50.. simple.

Hey kjt57,

have you checked if the original HTC-Headset works? Try the registry tweak that I linked in my other post.

Cheers

I don't know if this is any use to anyone but I just found this on eXpansys:
HTC Touch HD Audio Adaptor for 3.5mm to 3.5mm HS U350
It actually seems to be an official accessory, so hopefully that would mean that there's few-to-none in the way of compatibility issues.

Why you have to use MSVD? the voice speed dial that come with HD doesn't work for you??
