Hey Green. Happy New Year, hope its better than the last. Wont be hard! Anyway, yeah, I had a set of those Alerts once. They were great (far better than the usual Worktunes) for noise as they are true noise cancelling. Radio worked ok but I didn't have the patch lead for the phone etc. (That lead is a ripoff) They used to cost like $350 or so but I got a pair off ebay for $100. Just a lucky find. They stopped working in the end but being electronic, theres always a risk of that.
