S10 is 100 bucks cheaper than the s100. $150 in Canada. There are two headphone jacks. One regular one that is not for the funky antenna ones and one funky antenna one. Actually you can use both at the same time if not docked. Some people have had the antenna ones plugged into the radio but not over their head. They use the other for the ear comfort.

Hope that helps.

There are several other variations of this with the headphones attached to backpacks



Or the headphones or rather parts of it attached to motorcycles




Or even under your hat

Default S10

It does have an internal antenna built in right? How does that fair?

Unless there is a repeater nearby it does not work too well. You can be in an open field and must hold the stiletto still and even then at least in my neighborhood, it can be spotty at best. With the headphone antenna, it works much better walking around the neighborhood. It sill will drop signals when walking under trees or blocked by tall buildings.

In my case it depends on the time of day and where those birds in the sky are. With the docks car and home, I have no issues at all. Around the house I use the wifi which is why the SL100 works best for me. On my stereo, I just a have connector from the AUX input to mini plug which I plug into the headphone jack. I put it on wifi and it plays for a long time on batteries. WiFi uses much less power than the Satelite so the batteries last much longer.
