Default Headphones vs. Antenna

(disclaimer: I’m technically challenged)

Why does the description (pasted below) of the Stiletto from TSS-Radio say that the radio includes earbud headphones AND antenna headset? I thought the earphones were the headset???

Also, why does it say the antenna headset is “not required in most areas to listen”?

Can you guys help me out?

 Earbud Headphones
 Stiletto Antenna Headset (not required in most areas to listen live)

The Stilletto antenna headphones increase satellite reception because they have a built in antenna in addition to the one in the unit itself.. the earbuds are just normal headhpones. By "most areas", I'm guessing they mean areas outside of repeater range. If you're near a repeater, the antenna headphones do nothing because you'll get great reception without. Most major cities have repeaters so we don't use satellite signal.
