      This product is used both with the Clear-Com wired IFB (TR-50) and with the Clear-Com wireless IFB receiver (PRC-2). It is the right connection type for these two products. This headset can be used with any Clear-Com 4-pin XLR connection with an adapter available by a third party (may be custom). Also, this headset can be used with any HME DX Wireless beltack if you get the HME HSI6000 adapter (to get from mini-din to 2.5 mm) and a third party 2.5 mm to 3.5 mm adapter (several available). For the other people that provided low ratings because it was not the correct headset, it is not fair to mark down the product just because you bought the wrong one!

        It's a relatively inexpensive and efficient IFB. Had the same one in the past and the connection became loose after a while, but other than that it is reliable and does the job.

            Comments about Otto Engineering Single IFB Earphone Kit with 1/8" Mini-plug - Beige:

            I've used the Otto Engineering Earphone Kits for almost 5 years now. I use them in a college TV studio for IFB (internal feedback) purposes, and they work great! I still have my original two kits, and they have worked flawlessly from day one. We use these with our anchors on set so they can hear program audio for live talkbacks and in circumstances where they may not be able to hear studio audio.

            I've read a couple negative comments here, and I think it should be clear that these units are NOT built for high quality audio. The design alone should make that obvious, but I realize that some people are looking for high quality audio monitoring. These are designed for basic monitoring and reference - such as for use in a studio for IFB purposes. They are not built for purposes that require good sound reproduction (such as audio mixing).

            I'll also state that these earphones do require a little more amplification than a standard headphone or earbud, so be aware that some devices - especially portable devices - may not produced a loud enough signal if you are in a noisy location. I haven't had much problem with this, but I know that the volume level I've used with this particular product has been higher than other headphones connected to the same audio output.

            The bottom line for me is that there is nothing else in this price range that does the job as well as the Otto Engineering Earphone. And, to be honest, I've found it difficult to find any other standalone earphones that don't come with an IFB product or communications device.

                    I'm using this for communicating with on-camera talent. My only complaint is that the cord is pretty short, so you've got to have an extension cable to go along with it.

When it arrived it was what I was looking for and put it to work right away. It performed perfectly and WAS exactly what I was looking for.

                                                For the price, I'm very satisfied with this IFB earphone. Sound quality is good and it's perfect for the webcasts I'm using it for.

                                                  Works great for Skype and Vyvx satellite interviews. Low profile, easy to hide from camera view.

                                                  Decent price. A must have for any modern college public affairs dept.

                                                    Very good, solid construction. First time trying an Otto Engineering product, by far outperforms others like it that I have used! Clarity of sound and volume is amazing with construction that seems durable and strong. Overall a great buy, I think.

                                                        I used it in a couple of different ways. I use it when I am on satellite talkbacks and have it as my own IFB and I don't have to use the "communal" one. Plus I used it on my camera when I am in the field so I can get return for my mic.
