Radio headphones that cancel mower nosie?

Can anybody suggest a good pair of headphones that I can hear clearly without tuning the volume up ALL the way (to cancel out mower noise).

I have the ryobi ones I got at home depot. I have been very happy with them. They also have a switch to turn on the outside noise so you need not take them off if you want to talk to someone. They do a pretty good job at blocking out noise. I havent stepped foot on a mower without them. They can plug in your ipod with a AUX cord. and its got a limited volume limit so you cant blast it. and yes you can hear the music just fine. I usually get about 2 days out of mine on one charge. Check them out I really like them.

I have the peltior, or something like that and I think it's the worktunes model.
The wire on the righ side comes loose and that's the end for the radio.
I go through a couple pairs a year.

That's PELTOR. There's no i in the word.

If someone was to Google the brand name the way you spell it, they're not gonna find it.

Gonna is slang.
If you were to write that in an essay for a professor, you would get an "F."

If you are looking for earbuds, try Klipsch S4. If you buy them at Bestbuy, etc, they are around $80.00. I purchased mine off of ebay for $50.00 with shipping included. They are better than I expected! I did a great deal of research prior to buying, and they are the best you can buy for under $100.00. In fact, I found one site that stated they were comparable or better than several in the $150 range for noise isolation and sound quality. You won't be dissapointed.
