nice lightweight radio headphones, good sound.
love this product. It was purchased for a special needs child and is perfect for his capability.
Audio is muffled. The bass is non-existent, even with the "Bass Boost" turned on. There are no crisp highs as the top end rolls off long before the term "crisp" can even be considered.
They sit ON the ear rather than around it, so that cuts down on how long you can wear it before your ears start hurting. And in spite of having an extra head-band you'll find they don't stay on your ears if you try running with them. So much for the "Sport" part of the name.
Reading the tuning dial is for young eyes only. It is difficult to read the tuning dial unless you are in direct light.
Having worked in broadcasting far a large portion of my life I know what to look for in headphones. At this point I'm sorry I bought these. The earbuds on my cell phone sound better.
Good sound for using in water - my head is above the water but usually have trouble finding a radio that is somewhat water resistant with good sound
These am/fm headphones work great!
Arrived earlier than expected. Fourth RS headset radio I've purchased over 10-15 years, 3rd lightweight model. Good quality except for battery containment. First one battery connection/wire broke(one battery model), 2nd one the plastic battery cover keeper wore out, was using tape to keep shut, decided to order new and keep as spare. Headset is used a few hours each day, while working, walking or exercising; so I've been getting value for price. The other headset is the RS electronic tuning model, excellent sound quality and doesn't lose tuning. Very good at ambient noise reduction, wear it while running noisy equipment or walking near loud street traffic. My best rated headset was a Sony Walkman, analog tuning, excellent sound, kept in tune and the little antenna I just tucked under headband. No longer manufactured and only used models available as far as I know.
Very satisfied with RS products and service!
They are very much what I expected, but I really can't see the dial information very well. I was very pleased with the delivery time, I thought it would've taken longer than it did. Overall, I am happy with my purchase.
Doesn't always work reception-wise
I was searching for a replacement headset radio for my old Sony set and could not find anything like it anywhere until I ran across a Radioshack website. Yay! I found a Radioshack brand headset that I think is possibly superior to the Sony in that it doesn't need an antenna sticking out and NO push buttons!
Great sound quality, comfortable earpieces and simplicity and ease of operation are all great!
I LOVE Radioshack!
This time I will not donate my radio headset nor give it away to a needed somebody. I've done that before and was 'lost. I love music wherever I go and my headset makes me happy. No fuss, no hands, no noise interruption...just pure clarity and easy to maneuver controls. Shipping is quick and the box is light cause the headset is lightweight. Yeah!!
A retro back to basics headset with decent sound quality, good reception (am/fm radio) and what’s especially nice is you can enjoy these smartphone free! Just what I was looking for. Thanks R.S!
I use the headset every day and like the light weight and ease of use.
This item replaced the same product purchased about 8 or so years ago that finally fell apart. The replacement product just received takes 2 AAA batteries instead of 1, is greatly inferior in sound quality, and is smaller. Interestingly, I paid twice as much for it as the one it replaced. So much for progress.
I bought this same item before. It fell apart in a year. On/Off switch fell off. Then the Booster clip fell off. Then I had to take the batteries in and out every time I used it that the clip that held the batteries no longer stayed closed. Companies don’t make these anymore. This will be the last time I buy this if it falls apart like the other one.
This was the second time I have purchased this headset radio. Love it when I am out working in the yard.
I mainly bought this radio to wear when making my daily dog walks & it works very well !
Sometimes I will use it when vacuuming when there is something on I don't want to miss.
Purchased one years ago and fell in love with it than. It finally needed to be replaced so I went back to the best. Love the sound and ease of use. GREAT EAR PHONES.
Tuning dial is very touchy, but I guess that is to be expected on such a small device. Can't beat the portability. Sound quality is good for the price. I would (and have) purchase again-- I broke the on/off switch after two years of steady use!
great product. I use it daily. Shipping was very quick.
I spend a lot of time gardening and like to keep informed of news of the world by listening to NPR. I’ve had several very small portable radios that require ear buds but they get tangled up in shrubs, trees and flowers. These head phones sound good and stay on my head!
I was tremendously surprised / excited when I found you. All the Houston stores had closed and I had no clue. Tried Amazon but was uncertain about the headset offered. Some were even used. But your website was referenced..That's how I found you. I've been using/buying this radio headset for Years! I've given some away to others with needs. The no hands radio is a welcomed soul soother. I will be ordering another this week. My last order was for a homeless man under a freeway. The radio helps he says to pass the time and reduce mind stress. So thank you. The price is reasonable and the shipping is quick
Works great while I walk each morning. Ordering was easy and arrived promptly as promised. Just what I would have expected from Radio Shack.
this set of head phones were my 3rd set i've owned there perfect for the job i have running heavy equipment. There light weight and has a very good sound to them
Was a Christmas gift for my wife. Her old one was 20 +and having a hard time keeping stations. This one is great it’s like an upgrade.
only picked up 2 radio stations
Disgust & disappointment arrived at no extra charge with this radio (NOT with Radio Shack) I should have believed "you get what you pay for." THIS radio would never have earned shelf space in the former brick & mortar chain store, it is adequate or better if functioning as a product for a child. For an adult's fingers/hands, the control buttons are too tiny; for adult eyes (especially with constricted pupils in skies of sunshine) the lettering is far too tiny to be discerned without much squinting and learning of new cuss words. Cheap radios in our home receive stations 100 miles away with ease; THIS *#!%& product struggles at 25 miles. My bride and I have given up on it, the first doorbell ringer on Halloween 2021 wins a "door prize." The service aspects from this re-invented Radio Shack on line does earn a solid A, that IS meant as praise, sincerely so. From an island in Maine it is just too much of a hassle to go through to return this for a refund. Buyer BEWARE! Not all items meet high standards; not all product reviews are written by customers; some Sellers do not verify actual customer satisfaction. I say again, this "Radio Shack" is actually OK; this product should be an embarrassment to those who purchased the defunct store's name. It has been a bad experience, but a LEARNing experience too, so , I guess, all is not lost..... "only" forty something dollars and some time. Sigh.
The only thing last two pair piece go behind head to tighten came out had to use tape
I wish I could get more of the stations I enjoy.
I have purchased these radio headphones in the past when Radio Shack operated retail stores. I am disappointed in the price now since they are being offered on line plus shipping and should reflect that in the new price. Also, I was a little concerned about the length of time USPS took to deliver after receipt from you. You might want to review alternative shipping.
Bought as a Christmas gift and he loves it.
Love that they are so light weight and good
These are my husbands favorite headphones because they are so light weight
Lightweight am/fm stereo headphones
Very lightweight and great for walking. You can also hear what’s around you. Softly fit your ears and stays out. And receives FM stations with ease.
i was so happy to find this comfortable, simple radio. I use it for running, yardwork and housework. I like the radio and just great
Thanx for for Lightweight headset!!!!
I was looking for a headset that was lightweight and produces good sound and I got both when I purchased your Headset.
Lightweight Radio Headset
I had a similar one over 25 yrs. ago, which died. So glad to see your company still produces it. As a long distance runner, I want something light and easy to use. I can run farther and longer while listening to music and do not want to carry a phone and load music. So perfect. I want another, as a backup. Let me know when more are available, as I see that it is sold out. I highly recommend this radio.
Radio head set
Light weight great sound. Shipped in great time
Great radio headphones
I love these headphones! The sound is great. The headband is adjustable for a perfect fit. I’m very happy. The buttons are easy to get to.
Lightweight & comfortable
The headset is lightweight and comfortable. The buttons could be a little bigger. Easy to tune to stations.
Lightweight Sport AM/FM Stereo Headset Radio
It's great, easy to use and very convenient. Your Website was easy to use and I received prompt delivery. The price was right, also!
Very Very good
I brought this item for my husband on line delivery was on time. WE live in Bermuda. It was delivered to Long Island New York. My husband is very please.
Perfect for us Boomers
They work great. I guess I’m old school and just wanted some radio stations to listen to while I walk. I don’t want to have to worry about carrying my phone and loading music to it. The headset is light but a bit snug on me. Maybe I have a big head. But better snug than loose and falling off. Reception is fine. Thank you Radio Shack for still carrying these.
I live in Australia and work in radio & Tv. I have two headsets I have been repairing with duct tape for years. I walk with them, run with them AND COULD NOT BUT ANY MORE when your shops closed.
Now I know I can buy on line I can replace them as I beat them up during big travelling and bad packing.
They are simple, easy and reliable (as long as the battery slot can close!) and DOES NOT HAVE A THOUSAND BUTTONS for applications I don’t need.
Thanks. 5 star.
Good reception, good fit.
I didn't see a lot of choices when looking for a replacement for my old Radio Shack ones that lasted 20 years.
I tried a bigger, clunkier type and didn't like them. These are the more similar to my old ones.
The reception is better than my old set. It's easier to find stations and there is not the static that my old ones often had.
The fit is more secure than my old ones. I don't worry about them slipping off.
The sound is good. A little different quality than the old ones - hard to describe. Kind of softer, less high freq?
The old ones were a little "tougher" and heavier. These are very light.
The on/off, AM/FM and bass boost switches are VERY tiny and hard to move while the set is on. I take the headset off and very carefully push with a fingernail.
The battery cover is easier to access than the old one but it is a little flimsy.
The battery life (2 AA's) seems less than my old one (1 AA) but could be the brand of battery I'm using.
I've had these for about a month now and overall, I like them very much.
No station dial to know how to find a favorite station but tunes in perfectly to station once found without static like my previous headset from radio shack some 20yrs ago.
Great AM Reception And Battery Life
I`ve bought thousands of dollars of RadioShack products over the past several decades. A police scanner I bought in 1993 still works! A metal detector I bought paid for itself in one day when I found three nice gold rings. I always bought drum sticks, guitar strings and all my shortwave radios there. My last radio purchase from RadioShack before the local store closed was a Grundig G6 Buzz Aldrin shortwave radio. I love it!
I normally listen to mostly AM radio. I was very surprised that a headset like this has such great reception on AM. I`m in a rural area and FM reception isn`t good here on this radio. If you`re in the city you`ll have no problems with FM though.
I bought a giant pack of batteries for this headset and decided to test it for battery life. I`ve been using it every night on AM for a week as I sleep and even left it on once for 24 hours straight. The batteries haven`t needed replacing yet so I`m very happy about that.
If this radio lasts I will be very satisfied. Some say switches fall off and others have problems with the battery cover...yet others say these things have lasted for many years. I`ll be very careful with after hearing this because this is a great AM radio with great sound.
This will void the warranty but if the headset is too tight on your ears take a lighter and hold it under the band, soften the plastic some, then spread it apart carefully and hold it until it cools. If you do this right it will fit comfortably. I did it. It worked.
Take what you can get. Cheap, but expensive.
I've bought many of these. There's no alternative. It's a mediocre radio and the battery compartment lid will break in a few months, or the on/off switch will break off. However, it's lightweight and the only AM/FM model I can find that simply fits on your head. Cheap construction. No way it's worth the price, but Radio Shack makes lots of money on these radios because nothing else is available.
Price does not match quality
It works adequately well. I keep buying them because it may be the only lightweight am/fm set available. But, it has no frills -- no presets -- and I know that the on/off switch will break off eventually. I already have to tap it to get a connection, but one use too many, and I'll find it on the floor. This is why I had to buy a backup pair. If I could find a better choice, I would not pay the high price for these.
I really enjoy these, I have two now. My only issues are the tuning numbers and the foam ear pads. The window and the print are very small, so tuning isn't easy and for me, I'll look on their website for digital set and as for the foam ear pads, I could not find any replacements for them. Otherwise, these are great, light, good sound and are overall, great!
This the longest lasting
durable radio headset,I have ever owned. This my 3rd set in twenty-five years. Most headsets average one year!
The only problem with this head set is the door latch, very weak. It either breaks on the toungeor latch. I presently am using rubber bands. Could this problem be resolved with a better design?
Bought this for my husband, he loves it. Sound is great, it stays on while active.
Exactly what I needed
Good headphones and lightweight. I highly recommend
Exactly what my husband has been looking for. Thanks!
Great lightweight headphone
The product came packaged well and just as described
I finally found these on line as a replacement for an ancient pair of Sony radio headphones for my husband. I actually bought 2 pairs, one for home and one for travel. One pair had obviously been returned as there were batteries in it that had corroded. I contacted customer service and was sent a replacement set right away. Now, that is terrific customer service. Its nice to know that one can still get basic electronics, I hope Radio Shack continues to stay in business.
My husband likes these: light, good sound, appears to be sturdy.
My Mother likes this radio and has been using one at work for years. So she asked me to order 2. One for right away and one for Christmas.
one for the gym pool work outs(head above water) weight room walking track one for street walking neighborhood.
Light weight, good sound, fits my head snugg enough can do other activities while listening. Wish the control wheels were a little larger, but that’s just being pickie. Excellent buy.
This AM/FM Stereo headset radio is indeed lightweight.
It's also easy to set up for my stations & to operate.
The reception is clear even in enclose building like supermarkets where I usually got static.
My old one had a antenna which sometimes got in the way so the built-in is great.
The batteries are easy to install & the headband simple to adjust.
I recommend this without reservations.
Love my headset,only thing that would make even better are a little larger controls
Bought this headset in December, only used it in an office. Worked great until the battery compartment cover no longer snaps into place. Cannot see anything broken but apparently there is. So the headphones cannot be used, there is no way to keep the batteries in tight (tape doesn't hold, not even duct tape). Spent almost $60 and didn't get a year out of it. It's a shame, because the radio worked great, sound quality was excellent. Will shop for a different brand.
Good sound for a good price.
I bought these to use while I ride my bike. I like to listen to talk radio on am and the reception is much better than other radios I have tried. Very light weight and comfortable on your head. The controls are small but hopefully once you tune in the station, it will stay there. Used them today on my first bike ride and they worked great!
Great for taking to baseball games and listening sports announcers while watching. Good sound and connection to station. Only draw back, a little tight around the head but I can say, it certainly won't fall off.
Douglas R Huston
This is the second set I have purchased and this one is better than the first. Sound is clearer and the volume is better too. Love it!
Doesnt come in as clear as i hoped. So i wouldnt buy again.
easy listening ear phones
I like the light weight and additional clamp to keep it on my head/hat. and easy to use and good sound quality. some of the bottons are hard to get to but working with it.. good product..
Really nice to wear while I pull weeds. I always bop some when listening to oldies. Lightweight and good reception
Battery Compartment Needs help!
I like the lightweight unit. I like where the buttons are and the tuning and volume is easy to use. But I needed my brother to help me get the battery compartment open and I am not sure I will be able to do it again on my own. I don't want to chip my nails.
Satusfaction with AN/FM stereo headset
Sound quality is excellent. The lightweight AM/FM stereo headset sits well over my ears. I can listen to radio without interfering with other people around me. I like using the stereo headset when attending baseball games
Awesome for around the house to get chores done and always have a radio tuned in -- love no antenna, too.
Great radio for runners
I am a runner. I need my tunes when I run, and I prefer not to have a hand-held device. My previous headset made it through countless half-marathons and 5Ks, but it finally passed on. The new headset is a great replacement. It seems even lighter, and the sound is as good as the headset it replaced. I look forward to many more miles with my new radio. I bought two because radio headsets are hard to find.
Headphone is lightweight and has a clear sound
Very happy with these light weight stereo headphones: good reception and nice sound. Just have to be careful tuning it, so you don't accidentally bypass the station you are looking for.
Radio for walking
very pleased with the item--exactly as advertised
the only complaint is that it does not have a memory key--you have to be careful not to loose the station that you have on the radio.
used daily while walking
I love this radio. It requires 2 AAA batteries now instead of my old one but the reception is much better-especially at the ballpark where I listen to the broadcast while watching the game. The only complaint I have is that the little “door” for the batteries tends to spring too easily & I have had to put heavy tape over it & the battery connection is not good. Have had to replace 2 radios because of this problem
I have bought 2 of these radios, just in case something happens to 1, I will have another. It is great and I really enjoy using it. I am a handicapped young man and I use it a lot.
Small radio headset
Very nice audible volume just wish the on/off buttons were a little larger. But definitely serves my purpose!
The perfect headset
It was just what I needed. I walk at the gym and at home. I am a senior citizen so lightweight is great. I also wear it doing yard work. It is great.
I walk everyday with these and love that they have good sound and are lightweight and wireless.
AM FM Radio wirelss head set
Love it. Its just what I was looking for. I would recommend this headset 100 percent.
My husband loves these. He uses at work. Will continue to by in future..Lord willing.
samuel e strange
I run about 1200 miles a year and have used this headset about 90% of the time(do not race with it).It is comfortable and I can hear my surroundings unless I blast the volume.I have used these during sub-zero, hot, and down pour conditions and they still work well. Thinking about a back up pair in case of loss or damage!!
i need another set of these,there the best
this is one of the best headsets ive used, i got a lawn service company and these headsets work great ,i need another set of these ,ive dropped them ,cauhgt them caught in a tree ,stepped on them ,it always works to my delight
I love this headset. Good quality.
I am ordering another one. I use/wear it 45 hours every week, so it gets a lot of use. The first one lasted me 4 years, but I am hard on my stuff, because I use it daily, its on & off my head all day. It doesn't break easily, which is good for me. Thank you Radio Shack.
I have owned this radio since this past summer and have only changed the battery twice. Great reception and locks in stations really good. Radio Shack really put a lot of thought and effort in the design of this am/FM headset.Great job Radio Shack! Well done!
