    Meaning they're too quiet? Do you have an Android or iPhone?

    I got a crappy android. Takes a 3.5mm jack and cannot juice it worth a ####, have to feed it off external power or something. Maybe a set of computer speakers driven off the wall adaptor or something.

    Well, I have some ideas for you. You want headphones or a speaker?

    I prefer headphones but will want a wall jack or something to feed them. I cannot imagine what that will take. Thus back to the speakers.

    Well, here's some options, I've owned /own these items, and they're good products in a medium price range. Take a look, and you can also find reviews of them on YouTube.

    Pioneer Bluetooth®-enabled wireless headphone of NFC featured SE-MJ561BT-S https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00R7B96SC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_Izi7BbVYPWFK5

    I won't send links for these two, I just knew the headphones would be pretty difficult to track down.

    JBL Charge 3
    Sony XRS XB30
    (Both of these have roughly 8 hours of play time, and also allow you to charge your phone off of them.)

    Also, since you have an Android, and if you're an audiophile like me, go to your Google Play store and look for a free app simply called Bass Booster. It makes crisp, clear audio to anything you play on your phone.

    I deeply appreciate this. I'll get into this thing.

    I was getting ready to replace the onboard sound with a dedicated amplifying sound card soon. Maybe this will lead to wonderful things at 90 DB. Neighbors be ######. lolz.
     
    Slowmover1 Thanks this.

    Audio/video gadgetry is kinda a thing for me. I can't afford top end stuff, but I try to get the most bang for my buck.

    And for future reference, if you're looking for audio reviews, there's two channels I turn to on YouTube: clavinetjunkie and Jims Review Room.
     
    Slowmover1 Thanks this.

    If most truckers mostly run VHF instead of CB, do they recognize a common VHF frequency like the CB's Channel 19 that they monitor for such things as wrecks and other road or equipment hazards that they can warn others about in order for them to avoid the mess?

    To me, the "party line" Channel 19 that provides such service is the most valuable part of having a radio in the cab.

    Vhf radios are used mostly in BC, Yukon and to a lesser degree in Alberta. The talk around channel is called Ladd 1. (154.100 mhz). Ladd 2,3,4 are alternate channels and are frequently used by oversize loads and their pilots and construction flaggers. Ladd 2 is the weigh scale frequency in the Yukon.
    Logging roads and access roads to big industrial sites (hydro projects, oilfield sites, etc...) are usually radio controlled roads. There are a group of 30+ vhf channels called the Resource Road or RR frequencies you have to have programmed into your VHF to use these roads.
