    Hi, I am looking for some help. I am deaf in one ear and I am looking to buy a mono headset / earpiece that I can plug into my iTouch 2G.

    I have tried several local retailer / the Apple website /several internet searched and I have had no success.

    I have been told that if you just plug a mono jack in a stereo socket it can damage your device.

    Can anyone help.

    I don't see how a mono plug in a stereo jack could hurt anything. The only thing you miss out on is anything that is playing in the second channel that you wouldn't have have an earphone for. You'd have to downmix all your music to mono to get the full range of sound for one ear.

    Thanks sdschramm, its good to hear a mono jack will not cause a problem. I was trying to avoid having to convert all my music.
