The dog ate my earbuds!

Postby dlester03 » Sat Mar 30, 2013 8:26 am

On the brand new Roku 3 that I got a couple of days ago (bad dog)! Will any stereo earbuds work as a replacement? My wife loves it when I watch TV with the earbuds. I have a hearing problem and have to turn the TV up rather loud to be comfortable so the earbud feature is a real value add for me.

Thanks

I purchased a set of Koss earbuds yesterday. They work fine.

Thanks for your reply.

Just so you don't feel so bad, I will admit that my dog ate a pair of my earbuds a few months ago. I had just bought them a few days earlier, sure am glad I opted for the $11 Earpollution pair instead of the $60 Klipsch pair I was considering.

^ May not help. I have a Aussie pup who much prefers plastic wire insulation to dog food...

I was in the same boat you are, about 13 years ago, when my rat terrier mix was a puppy, and liked everything from bottles of V8 Juice to CD cases (and the CDs inside)..

Watch out for the cats too. Mine did not eat it just chewed through the wires. <Force equals mass times acceleration> cat.

Sorry for the dumb question. Will the roku 3 remote/earphones work with older models?
