Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GJR65 AM problem
In general, I like this radio. But I have one unusual problem. I like to listen to talk radio which is only on AM stations where I live. One of my list of AM stations has horrible background noise...to the point I cannot listen to it. Very frustrating. I have never experience a radio that had this quirk. By the way, I listen to this station on other radios and they do not demonstrate this problem. I will continue to use these while cutting grass on the riding lawn mower until I can find a better option.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by hugely disapointed horrible!
Had the analog version for years and it was great. The only problem was the battery cover fell off, but that's what duct tape is for. Wife "upgraded" me to the digital and like a fool, gave away my analog BEFORE using the digital. HUGE mistake. DOES NOT FUNCTION as a noise reducer, can hardly hear my favorite station (their broadcast antenna is 1 MILE AWAY). The slightest movement changes the station. Turned my head, one of the buttons FELL OFF. Check out the rest of the reviews: Less than 10% favorable. Great odds!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Farmer Like the older models better
On my 4th set so do like the product. However, the newest set doesn't allow me to see which station I am tuned to. Have to listen to the voice every time. That is a pain. Will you trade it for an older version?

I bought these about 6 months ago ,I can install new batteries and it says low battery. They will only last about 1/2 hour and it shuts off. JUNK don't buy

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tad_T They Work For Me
I like the functionality and the hearing protection is sufficient for my yard work and woodworking. The interface took a little getting used to, but it does make sense once you get the hang of it and it is easy to make changes without taking the headphones off. My only compliant is that I don't think I could wear them all day, a little too uncomfortable for that. However, 2 or 3 hours at a stretch is fine.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TonyT Read This: About Bad Radio Reception
I have had the last 3 models. The 1st model is analog and has great radio reception. The 2nd model is digital and has an LED display on the side and has the TERRIBLE radio reception. The 3rd model is digital with NO LED display (but has a large dial/knob for a total of 2 knobs) which speaks the stations to you, and the radio reception on this 3rd model has been fixed! I see that some people are leaving the bad reviews for model #2 (which has bad radio reception) for the fixed model (#3 with terrific radio reception) ...be careful! In these Home Depot photos, they actually have two different model photographed (#2 AND #3), so we don't know which one it is. I hope that helps.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JXT1 Not Impressed
I bought your head set last fall and I am not impressed. The radio reception is terrible as is the battery life. Worse, the clip holding one of the earpieces broke (see screenshot) after a fall of about 2' onto a wooden bench and now it is essentially useless.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by rillbizi Great Product BUT...
Would be top of the line IF it had an SD card slot instead of having to run a cord from the headphones to the MP3 player. For me this is a safety hazard working around power equipment like wood lathes, jointer/planers & table saws.
