Splitter RT-66 for uniden bcd 125AT

Edited

I just bought a Uniden BCD125AT with an RT-66 splitter. When I  plug earbuds directly into the scanner  everything is  fine, but, upon using the splitter, I  only get reception  in one ear. Some very expensive  earbuds DO work but the basic budget  earbuds only get one ear to work with the spliter. Is this normal? I've tried 3 sets of budget earbuds with the same issue. Thanks for the help.

output jack is mono / 1 channel

you need an adapter for it.

can you provide a photo of the headphones you are trying to utilize the jack it uses..

is it simple trs or is it trrs.

not trying to make something simple complicated

but that is a odd situation..

are you plugging in the cable and headphones properly.

The earbuds that fail are airline entertainment  earbuds.
The earbuds that seem to work are the Avantree HF027 extra long metal earphones. But, if the scanner  output is mono, then it seems I need a stereo  adapter. Many thank for the help.

Upon further review, and a call to Uniden Tech support,  the headphone is L-ch 4mW nominal 32 ohms.
With that information, will a mono to stereo converter work?
Many thanks for the  great help.
