Ofcourse the included earphone wil sound like crap, they are just a bonus thrown in, the idea is to use high-end earphones instead of the included ones.

I had the tinny sound problem even with top end Shure headphones. Couldnt hear dialogue properly / mono/ tinnny. Then I noticed that the headphone socket stops the jack from going in all the way. I added a short extension lead with a different plug and the sound is very good. I cant tell the difference really between wired and bluetooth. I can only assume that was your problem too. Hope it helps.

Can anyone else confirm this is correct? I currently have a few pairs of Sennheiser earphones & headphones that sound awesome via the wired connection and am hoping the quality/sound is replicated via this device also? Can someone confirm this?

When I get a call it rings on the headset, but does it ring on the phone, too??

I still this headset occasionally. One feature it has that when you answer or make a call, you can hear your own voice in the earphones as picked up by the microphone, very useful if you're using noise-isolating earbuds and you can't hear your own voice and therefore may be shouting during the call.
