Man it has been a long time since I posted in these forums.
The first thing is that you can in fact use your SP headphone adapter to listen to game with your headphone. Furthermore you can still use the regular headphone jack at the same time. The only game I can see using this at all though is Band Brothers, were you could use one jack for your own headphones and the other jack to hook up a small pair of speakers so that everyone else can hear your mad music skillz...or maybe not.
The second thing is that I was checking out the model numbers for all the hardware just to see what they were. The interesting thing about this is that two numbers are skipped.
ntr-001: The DS ntr-002: the ac adapter ntr-003: the battery ntr-004: the stylus ntr-005: game card ntr-006: game case ntr-007: ntr-008: ntr-009: the wrist strap /thumb pad
hmmm... I wonder what seven and eight are. I'm guessing that one of them is the pair of headphones included with the aformentioned Band Brothers, and the other is a headset with microphone, but I could be wrong. Maybe they are some yet unmentioned assecorries, who knows?
well I just thought somepeople around here would like to know these things.

Hmmm...I wonder if those model numbers have anything to do with the mysterious hole on the side of the DS that Nintendo haven't told us anything about. Or do we know what it's for now that its been released?

Quite a few of the numbers get skipped on all the systems. In fact, the different AC Adaptors for Japan, US and Europe all tend to be given different serial codes, due to the different levels of power conversion.
Of course, it might just be a couple of things that we haven't thought about, like replacement battery covers, or things like that. Or indeed, it could be headphones, or some other peripheral designed for use with specific games.
