View Full Version : Noise reducing radio headphone question

I know most of you touted the Peltor's. can you get them with a digital tuner? The ones at Home Depot had the turn dial. FYI- they were $49.99

HMmmmmm, very interesting subject I see! LOL

I don't believe that peltors are available with a digital tuner. If they are available, the cost would probably be double that of the analog headphones. But, I would buy a set if they were available. Much better reception with digital tuners.

Radio Shack - digital tuner, 10 station presets, gunmetal color, mp3 plug-in, $50.00

The Radio Shack ones are not noise reducing. Wonder how much difference this would make?

11-01-2004, 07:13 PM
Hmmm, I can't hear any of my machines with the radio cranked :D

Bose would be nice but hate to think if I dropped them how P.O'd I would be if I just dropped $300 and they broke. Digital tuners would be nice though.

oh yeah, and I paid $5.00 for warranty.

Whats the NRR on the radio shack ones... I couldn't find it on the web site...

I don't know. I thought those things cancelled themselves out anyway. Machine noise goes away as radio turns up?? The machine noise is reduced though when the radio isn't on.

I would like digital tuning. I am between Detroit and Flint and it depends on which way I turn my head which station I get. :realmad: :realmad: :help:

Has anyone tried taking the Radio Shack (or other) digital tuner and mounting the speakers in some true noise reducing ear muffs. (Peltor, Silencio, etc.)? Seems like this would work?

just had the wife go get me a pair....thanx....and remember if the noise is to loud ...just use ear plugs and turn the radio off if your so worried about the noise....people forget that a speaker over your ear is about as bad as noise can get.....lol

I wouldn't suggest this. Buy 2 muffs, tamper with two muffs, void warranty two muffs.

I like to sing really loud when I'm cutting. Drowns out the sound of the mowers.

That is what scares me about the ones that don't have the noise reducing rating on them.
I have a pair of elvex relax noise reducing ear protection with ther fm radio. The volume does not go that loud, because you are not supposed to drown the noise out with loud music..... :rolleyes:

I think if you do a search, you'll find Digital Peltors are available and run around $150.

I use the dial type, $37 at Wally World.

I'm in Flint and I can get 97.1 on my Peltors. Just depends if I want to listen to Stern or Bob and Tom (101.5)

Sony has an armband digital AM/FM radio that has much better reception(and 5 or 6 presets) than the Peltors. I use the NR headphones(22db) that don't have a radio, but have speakers and a plug for a walkman. I think I got the headphones at Northern Tools (around $25)and the Sony armband digital AM/FM radio at Radio Shack for $50.

Check walmart for Peltors in Nashville they go fast when they get them in but they are 29.99. They are in the lawn section not electronics.
