Can Other Earphones Be Used?

Must I use the earphones provided with the BlackBerry Storm or can I use other earphones?

Others will work. I use a set of earbuds only (no microphone) and they work perfectly. (I hated the OEM sets...to large for my ears.)

Thanks.

 

I have great earbuds that fit right into my ears so well and they are noise canceling.

 

I had Verizon earphones before and there were too large and they always fell out.

Re: Can Other Earphones Be Used?

But does anyone know if you can use earbuds with a remote on the cable that allows you to answer calls, stop playback, adjust volume?

Like the Sennheiser IE 8i say they're designed for use with Apple devices... but will they work on BBs?  The Storm 2?
