Not that I know of, but, they do make headphones with a jack to plug in external equipment such as a mp3 player.

I personally hate headphones. I sweat way too much and they always seem to get in my way.

I have used the Shure E2c noise isolating earplugs for the last few years. I can't imagine wearing those giant earmuffs on my head in 100 degree heat. These have worked with my ipods and currently my iphone.

There are a variety of $10 ear phones that have a squishy insert much like unto the cheap foam ear plugs you can buy. I find that they cut the noise enough and I do not have to have volume all that high. Sure they may not be rated for ear protection, but I do not have the earache or headache I get when I do not use anything.

Not an expert so don't quote me but the seem to work as well as plugs, and are far cheaper than the rated ones listed above.

These do work well but my ear sweat pooled up inside and wiped out a speaker.

They certainly exist as some of the guys have pointed out. There is IMO a better direction to go if your interested in the best as opposed to the cheapest. Get out the Yellow pages and check out doctors that are hearing specialists or handle hearing aids. Call them up and ask if they make custom molded musician style ear plugs. This is what you want. They should cost around 100 to 125 dollars but they will last FOREVER and you don't have to keep buying the foam tips that always wear out on regular ear buds. They will take molds of the inside of your ear canal up to the eardrum and use that mold to custom build ear plugs for you. All you have to do is tell them what type of ear buds you normally use. I use Shure ear buds which cost me around $80 but they make them for most high quality brands of ear buds. The custom ear plugs, which connect onto your ear buds where the foam normally goes, are almost weightless and quite frankly the most comfortable and most effective ear protection you can buy. I can set my ipod on a low volume and still only hear music while I mow. I know $200 for everything might cause some guys to go into cardiac arrest but remember these will last through a lifetime of normal use.

guy been using his i-phone to listen music (or whatever ~ 1? gigabyte memory), noise -cancelling earphones

i believe - if he had phone call - it would let him know

is there other systems similar to i-phone?
(not sure if there been any player feature on cell phones i had)

Walmart for $9 headphones
Harbor Freight for $4 Muffs
Sansa MP3 w/ FM radio at woot.com for $20

Lasted all last year and I have no complaints.
Over the winter I upgraded to an Iphone with an Oterbox defender case, and that will be powering the headphones this season. This way I won't miss any phone calls.

From a similar thread I was posting in earlier.

you mean - you can play mp3 files from the phone, and it interrupts or gives you a signal when you receiving a phone call?
all phones with player feature like that (you can't miss a call while listening mp3) or they all different?

I picked up a pair of these from Racing Electronics 4 or 5 years ago.
They have a AM/FM Radio built in which I like to get weather forcasts and the new. My iPod plugs in to them. I love them. Very Comfortable. It's also nice having the volume control on the headset so you don't have to pull your iPod out

They have very good sound reduction. the noise canceling headphones don't actually reduce the DB level reaching your ears. These have a 25DB noise reduction rating.
