Not really the point that quality 2.5mm headphones are available. They are
a response to dumb phones having 2.5mm jacks when they should have had 3.5mm.
There are more top quality 3.5mm headsets available. Vladimir raises a very
good question: "What is the jack intended to be used for? Music or calls?"
The Neo has bluetooth. Most phones with bluetooth don't have a jack at
all. So since this one does have bluetooth, wouldn't you want to use your
bluetooth headset for calls and your favorite stereo headphones for music?
I know I would. Can't wait for the future versions to get A2DP. Then this
question will be moot.
