What do you guys like to use? I use the big ear-muffs. The ones that put a nice tan line by your ears. lol I have tried various plug ins but found none that I cared for. Please share a link if you have found something that really works and is comfortable to wear.

You have my attention....what is this transmitter you are talking about? I love my work tunes, couldn't live without them! I just wish they made them with bluetooth, so I could hear my phone ring!

Here's what I got:

suprisingly transmits well for 5 bucks

this is what i would like to upgrade to with a 110 converter, i guess husqvarna makes a bluetooth set for like 400 bucks

I use work tunes when mowing, but during cleanups when I'm running the blowers all day on my back I use foam inserts and work tunes over them. Can still hear the music just enough and that's all I hear. I got tired of my ears ringing all night

Have had the worktunes and didn't care for them at all. I've been using ear buds listening to Pandora. I am tired of the wire. Looking for something better and since I will be working alone this year wanted something with bluetooth so I can take calls from the office or the other truck.

3m foam earplugs. they are comfortable and can be bought in a box of 200 pairs or more really cheap. i hate wearing ear muff type pressing against my ears and especially when it's hot outside like 100 degrees.

Disposable foam earplugs here. I prefer Quiet! Please by Flents...can get them at many drug stores in boxes of 25 pairs for ~$8. Though, they've been harder to find in the last couple of years. I might start ordering them online in bottles of 50 pairs:

Depending upon how dirty they become, I can usually get 3-5 days out of each pair before tossing them out.
