This is the first mod that I am doing to all my PocketPC Phone devices - modifying stereo headset. Original ones are Ok if you intend using them for 10 minutes or so, after that is just a plain torture. Well, at least for me.

Here is the result of my mod. Standard heads are replaced with SONY MDR EX51LP. Paired with this little addon for adjusting bass and treble it creates amazing result. In fact, it sounds better than any standalone mp3 player

Wwoo nice.. talking about torture. I used the ones that come with the PDA2K for 50 min straight now.. Jesus... it made me think the machine it self output garbage. The ones that come with the PDA2K are more suited for calls not music.. I wonder if there's anywhere to purchase something like you did. I don't have time myself for modifications.. I wouldn't mind the mic.. Maybe i'll just find a plug converter and plugin my sony's to the i-mate.. Good job you did.. looks professional

Thanks

It took me maybe 15 min to do

Of course, adapter will work, but them if someone calls you while you listen to the music you'll have to unplug headset and use the unit itself. In this case, just press a buttom

Another good solution is to buy the SE headset. It works just fine with the JAM including the mic. I may go for the one with the radio on it as well. And that makes the Compact/JAM really complete!!

I would say replace the 2 earspeaker units instead of cut in the middle of the line. Also, both earphone can be reverse to the very begin when need....

I can't post step-by-step pictures since unit is already assembled. sorry. But it's really easy:

1. Take apart this middle thingy by inserting your nails or very thin plastic knife. Meake sure no ti brake 4 little plastic clips, 2 on each side.

2. Take off top part.

3. Gently push wire from headphones side in to give some freedom for the circut board.

4. Lift it up the cisrcuit board and expose soldering points

5. Write down existing coloring of the wires soldered.

5. Unsolder

6. Cut appropriate lenght from Sony or whatever you wanna use.

7. Prepare wires for soldering

8. Don't forget to twist the wire the same manner as the original was.

9. Test headphones with case open and make sure both channels are working

10. Gently close cover

Sorry, was typing this in the rush. Feel free to ask more
