Default Sony A828KB question.

I have been looking around the internet for a bit of time now, but I have never seen any definite information on what you get in the box for the Sony A828KB as far as the headphones go.

Some people on this forum have mentioned that they got both the BT headphones and the in-ear headphones (presumably the same as ones you get with the 16GB version - that also would need some clearing up for me) though other sources - such as retailers don't mention the in-ear headphones.

Here are a few links to the 828s and 829s I've looked at:

An apparent 16GB version with BT headphones:
An 8GB version with BT headphones:

There are also a few others around the internet - for example, Curry's have what is a 16GB version according to the model name but in the details of the product it says that the capacity is 8GB.

If anyone can set me straight on what is going on I would be very grateful! Thanks!

EDIT: I have looked through a few pages of reviews for the A828KB and a few people have mentioned that they got both - the BT and the in-ear headphones. (

Then there is the 16GB model, though in the product description the model number corresponds to the 829 16GB version, but the availability is said to be from 2006, which is odd considering that AFAIK 820s were released in 2008. The price is only about 10 higher so that makes me a puzzled as to why the price difference is so smnall and alos why there are no user reviews for it. The product description is not too detailed either. (

Sorry if I'm writing too much, but I just want to know what is what.

Nevermind I guess, not may replies eh. Got in touch with Tribal UK and they cleared a few things up for me. Hopefully will turn out well. Yeah - ordered.

UPDATE: Got the A829KB. In-ear and BT headphones were btoh included, got it for about 103.

Issues - can't get SQ right for me, tried CX300 as well as supplied in-ear headphones - really bassy, but there is not apparent crispness. I tried to adjust the stuff in service menu, but still the SQ was not such that I could "indulge" myself in it.

Also there is one pretty notable issue - there is hissing with the player. Not good, just to point out- I did not get any hissing that I noticed on the iPod mini 1st or 2nd gen, and yes I have tried the iPod again to see if there was any hissing, none that was apparent.

There is also an issue with the "OPTION" button - it lack feedback and just does not press as well as the other (BACK) button. It can become a bit of an issue when navigating.
