Any audio device with a 2.5mm headset jack
Treo 650 is almost the perfect gadget. It’s a PDA, it’s a smart phone, and
it’s also a digital audio player, all in a compact package. Did you catch that I
said the Treo is almost perfect? The first annoyance that I
noticed was the fact that the phone didn’t include a regular sized headset jack.
Instead the smaller 2.5mm jack is used. This is understandable given the fact
that most hands free kits use this smaller size. So, if you want to use your
favorite set of earphones or earbuds, you’ll need a bulky adapter. Why use an
adapter though, when you can get a set of retractable earbuds that have the
2.5mm jack? JAVOedge now sells JAVOeBuds
with the 2.5mm jack.
There’s nothing really special about the earbuds themselves. They are your
typical hard plastic buds that fit in your ears. Sound is good and comfort is
just ok. That said, I have sensitive ears, so I may be pickier than most
What makes this product worth your money is the fact that the cable is
retractable. No more winding your headset cable around your hand and then
stuffing it in a pocket or gear bag where it immediately turns into a big knot.
With the JAVOeBuds, you just tug on both ends to extend the cable (maximum of 47
inches) and when done, tug again so that they will automatically roll up into
the middle spool. Easy.
I actually spent several minutes extending and retracting the JAVOeBuds over
and over trying to make the cable jam. Guess what? It never did. As long as you
pull both ends at the same time, this product works flawlessly.
In addition to preventing tangles and knots, the JAVOeBuds will probably last
longer than typical earbuds due to the fact that the cables won’t develop shorts
from kinks. They also fit easily into a pocket or gear bag, and are easy on your
2.5mm jack built in
