The Over The Earphone single earpiece speaker looks unusual but it is comfortable, durable, and has good voice audio quality. We have some law enforcement and news program listeners who use it for steadfast listening where good comfort is a concern, along with still being able to hear when someone talks.

I use this almost every night and it works well as a pillow speaker. Unfortunately, the insulation breaks down showing bare wire at the small end of the conical guard. For this reason I am on my third one.
Good pillow speakerWorks better than under the pillow types
After a few months use, bare wire is exposed at the small end of the conical guard where the cable attaches to the earphone.
Night listening which does not disturb others yet allows you to hear with the other ear

Useful earphone, good sound, but unlike previous generations of this product, now the cord is curly-kinky and will not stay straight. That's a pain to deal with.
Good sound, comfortable
Unsatisfactory cord won'd stay straight

I've used these for years at night to listen to the radio or podcasts. I can leave it over my ear and I don't even know it's there.
Very good fidelity, affordable and comfortable
none that I can think of
for instances when one ear is perfect, e.g. sleeping on your side or while working and needing to be able to hear from your other ear.

This earphone is perfect for the 436HP digital scanner. Since this radio uses a 3.5 mm stereo plug, it works very well.

I have had 1 for 7 years and it has been through heck and back. Very durable and sturdy made.
Price is unbeatable and quality is second to none.
Everyday and night time use .

I've been using this little speaker for years. Given my middle of the night radio habit, a good, comfortable pillow speaker is a must. This one stays with me and doesn't hurt my ear. I hope they never stop making them.
Comfortable,Inexpensive,External,Good cord length,Good value for the price
Somewhat cheaply made. Plan on replacing every two years.

Although I am extremely rough on this earphone, it is well made a solid. There is a fairly large speaker in comparison to ear buds, etc.
Cheap. Does not hurt ear after prolonged use. Stays on head easier than buds.
Works well with Uniden digital scanners that require a 3.5 mm stereo jack for external speaker,Can be used with Citizens Band radio.

C. Crane has great products, generally, but this unit is way overdue for an upgrade. It only lasts a few months to a year because of inferior cable material.
cheap cable even when treated with silicone grease only last a few months,whouldn't mind paying more for a better build.
everywhere when listening to audio and allowing one good ear to monitor ambient sounds.

Agree with other reviewers that the concept is remarkable, but the wire became stiff and broke at the entrance point to the earpiece.

I am on my third one. This is the only one that has the sound quality and comfort I need. Walking the dog, riding in the car, bus, or bike, it allows me to monitor my surroundings while listening. I would be willing to pay more for a better build. The cable sucks. I get one or two years before the short and I dont have the talent to replace plug. Fantastic design, I wish someone could copy the design and make it with better material. Until then, Ill keep buying.

This earphone is handy and comfortable, but the connection and particularly the wiring is as poorly constructed with cheap, fragile components as possible.

Love the sound, the fit, etc. but the cable is substandard, especially for this company. It is not long before the cable starts to stiffen up and then it cracks. I plan to replace it with a cable from another device as the shipping to Canada is 4 or 5 times the cost of a replacement.

Very good product but I see two improvements that could be considered. The first would be a removable (for periodic cleaning) rubber ear canal nipple to direct more of the sound into the ear and the second would be an slider adjustment for the ear-loop so that the device remains secure as not all outer ears are of the same size.
