    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hi,
I am wondering if anyone has any ear buds that they like for the BC396XT. I had the listen only ear piece from scanner master in the past, but it fell apart on me and never fit my ear correctly. I am not looking for expensive ones just some that work well and are portable as opposed to bigger headphones. Thanks for your help

I would stay clear of the new Apple earbuds because they have 4 contacts on the plug. Due to how the Uniden AF amp works, I'd be scared to put in a 4 conductor plug into any Uniden (or GRE/Whistler)

When looking for ear buds, look for ones that have different sized gel ear inserts. We all have different sized ear canals. I make sure with earbuds, they come with 3 different sized ear gel inserts.

Try searching Amazon for earbuds and read the reviews. I've found the reviews on amazon to be very good.
