    I think it's ridiculous that this awesome phone didn't come with headphones. This is such a cheap move anyone agree?

    Doesn't bother me at all. They would have just ended up in a drawer somewhere. Most stock ear buds are awful..

    Yea I'm going to agree with atl10pnr. I've NEVER used any pair of ear buds that came with any phone and most of them are so awful its not even worth it. I'd recommend a pair of the Sony ear buds at Target. They are like 18 bucks, have a soft tip (with 3 sets for the right fit) and actually sound pretty decent. I've got a couple of others that use for travel and around the house, but those are going to be better than anything you get with a device.

    the only thing that bothered me about the no headphones was thinking we were getting the mhl adapter. Since we didn't get that, then it was cheap of them not to throw in some headphones. Guess some of us are use to free stuff lol. not that big of a deal . imo

    I don't agree. I'm particular about headphones and chances are, if they were included, they would just get chucked in a drawer.

    Yeah, who really cares about some free, lousy headphones..but, a phone like this that USES the MHL adapter should DEFINITELY come with one...cheap move Samsung...same can be said about HTC not including one with my wifes Evo 3d..

    Really? Some crappy little ear buds that most people have like 5 of by now and have probably invested in a better earphone solution already anyways? I'm all for extras but I think this is being a bit nitpicky.

    Actually, the earphones that come with Samsung phones in the past have been pretty decent. I don't listen to music much on my phone, but the earbuds that came with the nexus s and og epic were pretty nice imo

    A mhl adapter would have been better. I got excited after watching a review where one guy had then included in his box, but I guess it was for promotional purposes only.

    I was just saying guys with the prices we pay for these it would have been nice to get some decent headphones with the mic built in for quick use or a back up to your store bought phones.

    In the last 16 months I have had an OG EVO, EVO 3D and Photon before this phone and none of them came with headphones. It's not like other phones come with them and we got screwed. Don't be so cheap, go out and buy some real headphones.

    Neither my OG Pre or OG EVO came with earphones, so I don't get the whining here. Go buy some decent earbuds and be done with it. I've got some Edirol ones I won and some Ultimate Ears that I bought. I think my Dell XPS laptop came with some decent earbuds not to mention the three sets I have from my iPods over the years.

    With the phone buds I've received in the past, it's more of an insult to include them rather than not include them.

    Lets make this simple:

    I bought this phone for the PHONE.

    You want extra stuff, go buy it. Phone manufactures have coddled us long enough, we buy these things for the phone and nothing else. Extras are just that, extras! As in free bonus, yay gifts, treats, things you cannot be ungrateful for if you do not get.

    HTC have not given free stuff with phones in ages and still people whine about it.

    I dont even unpack the chargers & usb cables anymore in these phones, they're all the same.

    my Pre came with earbugs. They were kinda nice. Not high quality by any means but they had magnets on the backside of the ear buds to keep them together when rolled up and a microphone with a skip button / volume control around the neck. I still use them on my Epic 4G Touch.

    To the original post.. meh I wasn't really bothered by the lack of earbuds with this phone.

    What about the lack of an SD card? Even an 8GB would have been decent.

    Pretty solid choice, and I don't think they are viciously over priced. I was able to pick up a pair of Monster In-Ear Turbine head phones for 59 bucks on an Amazon Gold Box Deal

    Amazon.com: Monster Turbine High-Performance In-Ear Speakers: Electronics

    Overall I've been really happy with them. Additionally I've been pleasantly surprised by the quality of the audio output when I use the AUX cable in my car and when I listed to music with my headphones. Seems like a big step up from my OG Evo and probably better than the Photon (not a lot of experience with music on this device). I read some posts about people not being happy with the Samsung GS2 sound but i have been.
