That said, I prefer not using stereophones, the equipment I use is some-what tempermental and I like to be able to hear what's going on. Same reason I rarely use my car/truck radios when driving. The effects of always driving lemons....

It's a long day if I forget my 3m Worktunes. They now never leave my truck.

As a kid we used to beg our dad to turn on the radio in the car, but he wouldn't - "I can't hear the car with that on", he would say.

You are not alone.

Not sure why somebody would want to hear their equipment, but while the Worktunes drown out most all the equipment noise while letting you clearly listen to the music, you can still hear the engines/equipment running, though very low decibels.

So you can hear any subtle differences that tell you there may be a problem before it IS a problem.

Pretty simple, really.

You can hear the motor/equipment over the music. If/when there's a difference you can hear it whether it be a trimmer or 27hp.
