    Best Uses

      Comments about RadioShack 3-Foot Pocket Radio Earphone with Plug Adapter:

      The wire always breaks at the end of the 1/2" reinforcement. I now put some duct tape at that point on a new one. That helps a little. Lasts about six months.

        Comments about RadioShack 3-Foot Pocket Radio Earphone with Plug Adapter:

        This is the only mono earbud on the market whereby I can plug it into my Ipod for podcast listening while my hubby is beside me fast asleep. When we travel we stop at Radio Shacks to see if the earbud is stocked. For the most part, it is not stocked and I wish it were! I found one yesterday in Pontiac, IL and you would have thought I found a million dollars! The gal said they are always available and I guess they are ONLINE. Which is a relief!

          Comments about RadioShack 3-Foot Pocket Radio Earphone with Plug Adapter:

          Don't need ear adapter .. the wire is TOO thin and easily gets worn at the plug in end...then have to hold/wiggle wire to hear....frustrating. Also most stores don't hav it in stock. But the design is great especially at night in bed listening...until the wire breaks...

                  Comments about RadioShack 3-Foot Pocket Radio Earphone with Plug Adapter:

                  Simple, cheap way to listen to audio at work, while leaving one ear open to hear when coworkers approach. I like to combine it with the 1/8" Stereo Plug to 1/8" Mono Plug Adapter
                  (Model: 274-0374) so I can listen to music without losing one stereo channel.

                  The wiring is sort of flimsy, and I often have to jiggle it after plugging or unplugging to get the audio back. Eventually, it just wears out. But it's so cheap to replace that I don't mind.

                      Used by security staff in non-profit organization.

                      Fits our limited budget.

                      Unfortunately, they don't hold up to frequent use by officers. Partly because of inexpensive materials and manufacturing of earphones and partly because of negligent care by officers.
