    We have some similar to those and is nice to listen to , makes the day go by faster. But I wish they could make them so you wouldnt get so hot while wearing them.

    Anything is better than the peltors. My peltors suck big time. They block out very little noise, the radio station wont stay put and the ear cups fall off all the time. The set of Elvex I had blocked out 2X as much noise and the radio never changed stations on me and the ear cups never fell off. This set that he gave the link to looks much better made than the peltors do and look like it has alot more insulation to deaden the sound better.

    Ok guys. This is the stuff for you right here. Shure makes a set of headphones that BLOCK outside sound. you have to hook them up to a player but they don't make ya sweat. They are pricy, $100 bucks. I got mine at best buy, and love em. I decided to not use them as I couldn't hear anything else while using them. Shure also makes a telephone headset using the same technology. Now, I can actually hear my phone ring, and even talk on it while on the mower. They are well worth the price. The telephone headset was 39 bucks. I can personally vouch for those shure products. Go online and see, or go to your local Best Buy or Circuit City.
    I bought peltors and put them on once, and they are sitting in the box. I will not use them.

    P.S.
    These headphones go IN your ear, not over it.

    My Peltor Racetunes work great. You can listen to
    the am/fm radio or use the supplied cable to attach
    a mp3 player. They are sorta hot though.
