Well - not really.
Unfortunately for me, I can't really afford nice headphones, and would
like to use reasonable earphones, that if I mangle them, as I may with a
mobile device, I don't care so much.
A2DP isn't really an answer.
It means another battery to charge/run out, and large expensive headphones.
I could care less about having to physically pick up the phone to answer
it, it doesn't bother me at all.
For me personally, a 3.5mm jack would be ideal.
