Is there a good earpiece, earbud, that will work with radio. I don't want to where a big headset at the race track as they can too hot. Maybe a single earpiece that has a type that has a clipon over the ear??
Way too descriptive, I have an earache nowHeadphone jack is a stereo jack.
Ext. Speaker jack is a mono jack.
There is no issue plugging a stereo plug into a mono jack. You'll just have silence in one ear if listening on earbuds. It doesn't short out anything in the scanner.
But, DO NOT PLUG EARBUDS into the Ext. Sp. jack. It provides enough power to blow the earbud out (through your eardrum if you are wearing it at the time).
truthfully I do not remember. I went through my ebay history but I guess I had bought these a while ago. I do use it nightly in bed and have to turn the scanner about halfway up to hear it while the wife watches TV but, after the TV goes off I turn it down and fall asleep listening to the scanner.Now, I am confused. Dafeler---is that 3.5 plug a mono or a stereo that you buy @ e-bay and it works fine. I need all the amplification I can get to hear with one ear plugged in and another to hear other noise. Hate heavy earphones w/one ****ed on the side of the head. Got the drift. Confused on will really work. Been using a Radio Shack 30 channel analog and it is a hearable radio but want something that will be bulky in 2 respects.
Is the need for the stereo plug because of the volume difference or because it could hurt the unit? I have been using the ear piece I mentioned above for two years now. I only use it at night when laying in bed. Everything seems to work fine otherwise.The plug needs to be stereo, not mono.
