Peltor's also. I paid $50 at Home Depot but this time of year if you can find a Wal-Mart that still has any in the L&G Section they'll blow them out at like $5-$15 to get rid of them at the end of the season.

He ask about <b>Noice Reducing Radio Headphones</b> NOT regular old stereo earplugs or headphones which is all you have with the Sony Earbuds. The Peltors and other Noice Reducing Radio Headphones are CERTIFIED to keep X Number of db's out to protect your hearing. They are not just for listening to music!

Peltor Select. High end (red in color). Price is a lot higher at around $150. The push button controls and four station memory make it worth the price. :cool2:

Peltors have a pretty good warantee, they do wear out but imo $50 or so is worth a little protection and entertainment for the year. We buy a new set for all at beginning of each year.

I bought a pair of Peltors on impulse and paid $70. :dizzy: But I can honestly say they have to be one of the best pieces of equipment I own. I use them from vacuuming to splitting wood.....and of course cutting grass. :rolleyes:

Peltor's. $37 Wal-Mart H&G.

Mowing, skid steer, mini x -- I wear them for everything now. If I'm working by myself planting or what not, I'll sometimes wear them too. Music makes the day go by so much faster.

I have the BOSE and love them. not only are they a white noise generator but also plug into my PDA or anyother device so you can listen to music. Cost about $299

Well, two answers. For mowing I built these http://lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=72838

For traveling with work I use Sennheiser PXC 250's http://www.crutchfield.com/S-6ht32vSF1eW/cgi-bin/prodview.asp?i=143PXC250

They both work great!! :)

I was wondering about those Sure ear buds. They have a noise reducer built in them as well as ear phones. They fit like the sony's mentioned before w/ the diffferent ear pieces so they will fit your ear. Anybody try these? I think they are about $100.

Went and asked about radio muffs the other day. Found a pair of Huskvarna muffs. Problem is they wanted $500 for them. (thats about US $375) I almost fell on the floor. They also had a cheap AU$100 brand pair but they looked, real cheap!

Didnt buy either!
