“Upgraded” G1 headset – use whatever earbuds you want…

G1Headset Detail
Neat, here’s a post a maker sent in about a hack to the headset of the new T-mobile G1. “Replace those crappy earbuds with just about whatever you want and retain the microphone and button features of the headset. Also no need for dumb usb-3.5mm adapters”… Purkolator writes –

I have been thoroughly enjoying my new G1 for the last week or so with one major exception. Music! After trying out the included headset for about 3 minutes, I swore it off. They felt just like the i-pod headphones to me and I hate those. Maybe I have big ears or something, but I always feel like they are about to fall out and I get zero bass response. I generally prefer earbuds with a tight fitting rubber or foam earpieces (like the Sony EX51s and EX71s or my favorites, Etymotics!).

Sooo, not wanting to have to hassle with adapters if at all possible, I figured I could perform a little surgery on the included headset and get what I wanted.
