only 2 complaints with, you look like an idiot when the dj on the radio is saying something funny and you cant help but laugh. I must look like a lunatic, laughing as a push a mower pass your patio doors, lol.

second, the antenna catches a low branch sometimes and sends your head back, and once again, you look like an idiot.

love them though

Listening to Howard Stern sometimes I will bend over howling in laughter. I'm sure I look demented as I am by myself. Sometimes that stuff is just funny.

I have tried a bunch of earbuds, plugs, iphone buds, and ipod buds. Oh and don't forget the Peltor type tunes...Man, those get heavy and HOT...
I finally found the Bose AE2 audio phones. I found that with any thing that has a wire to it, when you turn your head most of the time it pulls out of your ear and don't keep out ambient noise. With the bose, you can listen all day and you won't get too hot or their not heavy and you can turn your head freely. Yeah, you get what you pay for at about $140.00 but I go through a pair in about 3 yr. Not a bad investment. Any ipod, mp3 or ph. will work.

Just remember, that's just my opinion from 16 yrs. of mowing.

Bunch of other crap!!!!

The only problem I had with the head phone is you have to first figure out what ear phone is for what side -- left and right-- but that is easy to do with this video on youtube ( ). Its loud so turn your volume down. Until then, here is a picture of one of the custom ear phones in my ear while it cures, and one of what it looks like out of the ear.

Ps. sorry for the fuzzy pictures, I used my camera built into the mac.
I'm not a Miracle Worker, if it looks like crap now, it will look like crap with stripes when I am done.

i've used those regular earplugs, hated them, always slipped out, I don't like the big bulky headphones, so I've resorted back to not using anything.

I like to hear the motor roar since I installed a quieter muffler and the humming of the blades
