Earbuds are an electrical item that are used to stop zombies hearing sound from radios and ValuTech PortaDiscs.

Usage

Sound reduction

Earbuds can be plugged into a radio, walkie talkie, or ValuTech PortaDisc, allowing the player to listen to the radio, or other players without producing any noise, therefore not attracting any zombies.

To do this, the radio info panel must be opened, then the earbuds can be dragged into the "earbuds slot" (Ham radios cannot use earbuds, see headphones).

Dismantling

Earbuds can be dismantled with a screwdriver, which will result in one scrap electronics.

Trivia

  • Earbuds in the real world, are designed to fit into a user's ear canal, differing from headphones in which fit around the head over the user's ears.
  • Earbuds were not really popular until the early 2000s, being popularized by iPods in the early 2000s, but they are still commonplace in the game, likely due to continuity error.
