AM FM Radio Headsets – Keeping it Old School

If you were born before 1990 (and perhaps after) you probably remember your dad sitting around the house on Monday night or Sunday afternoon with his goofy headphones stuck to his head, listening to “the big game.”  He probably had on a big clunky pair of red Sony headphones with a flexible antenna running down his shoulder. And regardless of the fact that you didn’t want to listen to the game it didn’t matter, because he had that thing cranked so high your neighbors could hear the play by play.

Well you know what they say, “Great things never die.”  The AM FM Radio Headset is far from dead.

Below you’ll notice the first radio headset still retains a similar visual to the older radio headsets.

The big difference?

They don’t have paint chipping off the earphones, they aren’t so heavy your neck hurts, and the sound is just plain good.  Oh, and let’s not forget the actual foam pad ear covers aren’t ripped to shreds.
