When I plug in headphones the radio goes into transmit mode.

I want an earpiece that allows me to receive but not transmit. When I plug in my earbuds the radio goes into tx mode and doesn't do what I need. Any ideas?

This is a common problem when the audio device is plugged in when the radio is turned on. Be certain to have your radio turned off when plugging in the audio device.

If this is not the case, your audio device is not compatible with your radio, or your radio has a bad accessory jack.

Best regards.

How to open earpiece of UrbanEars Medis earbud


I have a pair of marshall minor headphones. They are essentially the same headphones, very similar design if not identical. I had a short occur just where the cable enters into the ear piece, i was devastated when this happened. they are a good pair of headphones and i didn't want to have to shell out on another pair.
To open the earpiece, i first removed the silicone ear-click thingy. if you look in the recessed space where this fits, you will notice a clear join between the two pieces of plastic. I inserted a razor blade into this join and after very little effort i managed to separate the two halves. In doing so i actually poked the back plate off as well, i did actually try to get this off but didn't trust myself enough with the razor blade to continue.
there is another layer of plastic covering the circuit board in the ear piece, which again i would attempt to remove via the recess where the silicone ear-click piece goes. i only had a short in the cable so i didn't go as far as getting to the circuit board.
the whole earpiece consists of at least four main pieces of plastic which are held together by a series of plastic pins. with a little Araldite/ strong superglue you would never know i had opened the earpiece.
i can't believe there is nothing online about fixing these headphones. it's a shame, they are good headphones which have now been saved from the bin.

I cannot hear anything unless its on speakerphone and the person on the other end can hear every thing


Your earpiece is bad and needs replacing. Though this might not be effectively replaced by you, you may have to take the phone to a lcal repairer to fix. But in the mean time, you can conveniently make and receive calls, without a third party totally eavesdropping with the aid of a hands - free device.

I hope that solves your problem?
Take care.

Shure E4C headphone failure


I just found out how to open the E4's.

What you do is, unscrew the metal cap that holds the angled earbud tube in place. Note that the tube itself can't be turned.

Then remove the metal ring behind it as well as the small rubber ring.

There is a 'hinge' at the cord end of the earbud, so what you should do is take a very sharp knife (I used a scalpel) and pry the top off the earbud from the end that had the ring mounted by inserting the knife between the top piece and the metal element. Note that it's attached with a little glue, so it will take some coaxing to get off.

Loss of stereo mode


First I would try a different set of headphones/earbuds to make sure they're working properly.

If all the headphones you try have the same issue, the headphone jack is damaged. Bring it back to Best Buy. The contacts are too small to fix and are connecting incorrectly.

If you are using vox (voice activated transmit) go into the menu and make sure you don't have the VOX setting too high. You should be able to put the headset on... hit the "push to talk" button on the radio and transmit you audio. Turn the other radio on and make sure the radio is "keying" (tx with no auio) then make sure there is audio. If you don't have audio but the radio is transmitting.. you might have the wrong type of plug on your headset for the audio..... there are 2 plugs... 1 for transmit audio....1 for recieve audio. It could be the wrong type of plug for the jack in the radio. Regardless.. the way the headset works is either you push the "push to talk button" onj the radio OR you use the VOX function... with the vox function you just have to talk into the mic to transmit. This is what your headset is designed for. You will have to go into the menu and set up the radio for VOX. If you still have problems follow my directions at the top of this page ( check mic jack and stuff) I think you just have to set the radio up for VOX operation and set the VOX setting. You should be able to push the push to talk button and talk through the mic on the headset. If you don't get any audio that way there is a problem and you should check the jack and plug on the headset.
