I have been looking at my options on what phone i want to get on the shiney new XT network. I've narrowed my choices down to these three phones, the sony ericssion w705, or the w995a once it is released, or the noikia E75. These phone seem to me to cover all the things im after in a phone, mp3 player, camera, wifi, and so on.

I've recently had my ipod stolen so need sometihng to replace it, the w995 and E75 seem like they would be pretty decent for music as the each have a 3.5mm audio jack. The w705 requires the sony ericssion headset for a wired option or there is teh option of bluetooth headset, but im not really into that. Can anyone inform me if the sony ericsson headset the w705 comes with is any good for this purpose?

finially i believe theses all support the 2100mhz band and therefore should be compatable with 2degrees once it launchs, right?

Any insight into other options I should consider or reasons why i should choose one of these over the others would be much appreciated.

i have the w705a. For sound quality im MORE than impressed. I bought an ipod back when they were all the rage changing from my creative zen. Then after hearing how bad the sound quality is i switched to a Samsung T9. I use an X-Fi soundcard in my PC.. what im getting at is that sound quality is a big deal to me. Using my pair of Ultimate Ears Metro.Fi 100's the sound, and especially the bass! is outstanding. completely satisfied :D although i assume the W995 will be similar, the E75 probly lacks in comparison, however that is just speculation i havnt done any research.

Sounds alright really. The only thing better about the E75 is the side-kick keyboard, I reckon the w995 would be far superior for music, and at 8.1mp on the camera i don't really have any reason to take a digital camera with me again

How have you gone about hooking up your other headphones to it? Is there an adapter or something along those lines?

The w995a has a standard 3.5 mm audio jack so you shouldn't have any issues with headphones.

Decided to go with the w705, very happy with it so far. Transferring music to at the moment. To answer my own question; yes it did come with an adapter that has the mic and a volume control on it.It takes a standard 3.5mm audio plug
