The side connector that pulled power from the MBTR did not function correctly causing us to constantly use AA batts...and they gobbled them up. The ear foam plugs continouly popped out (although that could be fixed with after market plugs.) So needless to say we sent ours back...my .02

Good to know, thanks for the input.
