    Hi all

    I just can't get on with the little bud earphone things that come with the
    6230 - the little blighters just won't go in my ears.

    Is there any way to connet "proper" headphones to the pop-port so that I can
    listen to the radio and MP3s?

    TIA

    Phil

    Are you wearing them right?
    See my post 'Maybe I'm just a bit thick...' today in this NG. ;-)

    There are several places that offer mods to add a standard headphone jack to
    the headset.
    Sorry I don't have any URLs to hand, but if you 'Ask Google' you should be
    able to find something useful.
    I haven't done it, but is is apparently quite easy to open the microphone up
    and do this yourself. Obviously I take no responsibility if you try this and
    bu**** up your headset. ;-)

    Cheers,

    ChrisM

    I'll be interested to hear if anyone has any luck with this and any URL's
    too if you have them

    my ears are far too big for these tiny headphones (
