ROFL! Is that what happened to you?? (just kidding)
Earbuds are for people who don’t mind hearing all the other noises around them. I personally like to hear whatever is coming through my headset and earbuds are not very comfortable to me at all. The best headset I ever had was a Koss headset that had huge earpads. It was comfortable and covered my ears, blocking out a lot of outside noise.
Looks like there are 2 jacks. Is that for left and right (stereo sound) or are there two different size jacks to accommodate various electronic devices that have different size jacks?
