You broke your antenna headphones just to do this? Or did this happen via accident and you are just being resourcefull?

Before I disassemble my antenna headset are there replacements available? How about an antenna that will plug into the Stiletto direct rather than through a dock?

It sucked when I first put it on, but I guess I have big ears or something, because honestly, I have gotten used to them. They don't hurt my ears at all anymore.

Okay your PDA has been charging for 2 days now. How bout some photos. I wish these things came apart with screws or easy to snap apart. it looks like a one and done type of assembly.

They seemed to have just modeled them after the Belkin one that XM has and they should have thought out of the box and came up with a comfortable alternative design.
DAB -- was this an intended xmsr bash or what? i dont find the xmsr antenna headset uncomfortable at all and have not seen many complaints about it as with the siri ones.

GB33, all you have to do is rip apart the sticker padding below the SIRIUS logo where you supposedly put your headphones on, and there are two miniscrews. Unscrew both of them, and what I did was solder wires and cut two holes in the jackets and... used glue. Sorry Mr. Impatient, but I will take those pictures now.

Thanks man. Just trying to keep it light.
I am pretty interested in the idea of an in-line antenna like I was talking about on the other thread. http://www.siriusbackstage.com/forum...ad.php?t=91016
I think it would really keep the rest of us animals happy.

Having both I can tell you they are pretty much the same... If you've not seen any complaints go back and review threads on XMFan and XM411 when the Belkin was released there were plenty of them. I don't need to take cheap swipes at XM. Also, XM setup doesn't come with the headphone/antenna setup you must buy it separately, so most folks never bother to buy it, but those that did had some of the same complaints. By the way I don't find the SIRIUS headphones uncomfortable either... why probably because for 6 months I was wearing the XM model and so my ears are use to this type of headphone. Have you tried the SIRIUS model?
