I've owned several of the Radio Shack versions, and they've had a tendency not to last, even with only light and sporadic use. I just retired one this week, in fact, after the left channel became much softer and would only return to normal if I squeezed the plastic housing surrounding the volume wheel. It spent its life either in storage or plugged into the back of a stationary DVD player...not very heavy-duty stuff...so the Radio Shack ones don't get my personal recommendation.
