Not that I know of, but, they do make headphones with a jack to plug in external equipment such as a mp3 player.

I personally hate headphones. I sweat way too much and they always seem to get in my way.

I have used the Shure E2c noise isolating earplugs for the last few years. I can't imagine wearing those giant earmuffs on my head in 100 degree heat. These have worked with my ipods and currently my iphone.

There are a variety of $10 ear phones that have a squishy insert much like unto the cheap foam ear plugs you can buy. I find that they cut the noise enough and I do not have to have volume all that high. Sure they may not be rated for ear protection, but I do not have the earache or headache I get when I do not use anything.

Not an expert so don't quote me but the seem to work as well as plugs, and are far cheaper than the rated ones listed above.

These do work well but my ear sweat pooled up inside and wiped out a speaker.

Anybody use their phone's mp3 player so as to be able to receive calls?

What I would like would be a stereo Bluetooth set using foam earplugs...
