Hi Thomas, all,

Publish please urls where a compliant headset (2.5mm, 65 ohms, stereo, 
mic?) can be bought online. If there is no compliant headset, the issue 
will be at least identified, hopefully first step before resolution :-) .

I tried 3 earphones: the first one was unusable, due to low impedance as 
pointed out by Joerg's answer:

I did not find a 2.5mm, 65 ohms stereo earphone, and fall back to check 
two 3.5mm, 65 ohms Sennheiser earphones plus a 3.5/2.5mm adapter. The 
audio volume is correct, but now only one ear has audio.
