i don't like muffs because they are hot in the summer, but I use sony ear buds hooked to my radio or ipod. i can listen to my AM talk, or various podcasts.

the ear buds are like ear plugs, so it blocks out noise at the same time as playing music.

there are things called "work tunes" I think. google that and you'll find the radio earmuffs.

The only thing that was missing from mine.

I will be stopping by Lowes today to pick up my stocking stuffer.
