    I saw a set of Peltor worktunes (yellow) at wally for $49. Seems like a decent price I just need to know how well they hold up. I'm asking santa for selects, will these work till then? I really need some entertainment while mowing, bored out of my mind today.

    Thanks for the info. I don't care if they last 3 months I'm going to get me a pair ASAP. I didn't know they had them at wally. And by wally you mean the mart place right.

    I have a similar pair which I ordered from www.northerntool.com

    They work OK, I do wish they had the digital tune because its really easy to lose your station of they get knocked or even if you change the position of your head.

    Also, the inner speaker on the battery side pushes against my ear :eek: at times which can make things uncomfortable:angry:

    I would say go for it. Its only $49-

    I paid 59 from harbor freight. Go for it, you won't be sorry. If my local Wally-world has them for 49, I'll get a spare set.
    The fact that you can't look at the tuning knob and know what station you're on kinda sucks, but I have a favorite station, and put a mark on the knob to re-adjust to after hitting tree branches, etc.
