Default Charge w/ Antenna Headset?

The antenna headset adapter and USB adapters are a hair too big and prevent you from plugging in the charger when they are in place. Was this intentional?

yes it has been explained that the antenna draws some power, so it needs to use the power connection that is used to charge the stiletto.

??????? That makes no sense. The power adapter that comes with the Stiletto does not fit when the antenna headset is plugged in. I am wondering if it was intentionly designed this way to prevent you from using the charger while the antenna headset is plugged in.

First thing I noticed, very odd, hopefully there is a good explanation or a huge oversight. You basically cannot charge the until while the antenna headphones are plugged in, they're too close to each out.

If you were to say anything was of bad design with the Stiletto it would be that you can't plug in the headphones with the power attached. I don't think there is anything else about the device that wasn't well thought out. Eventually I bet you see adapters that will correct this.

Something I find a bit odd is if you're listening with regular headphones and plug in the sat headphones the sound gets louder in the regular headphones. Soon as you unplug the sat headphones the sound goes back down. Why would it do this? Perhaps it has something to do with the antenna on the sat headphones drawing additional power. Any ideas?
