    I need to buy another set of Peltors but I HATE the fact that the tuning dial is always moving when you brush against something.
    For years some of us have been asking for digital headsets.

    Anyone out there know if a digital headset is yet being offered by any manufacturer?

    I wish BOSE would get into this product line but from what I see in their product line, they dont offer anything for reducing this kind of high decibel noise.

    Whats your guys favorite peltor or any hearing protection headset for mp3 players? One that had a neckband would be especially nice so it wouldn't get in the way of my hat.

    It is my understanding that Peltor does make a digital set and it runs around $175

    I use a set of sony headphones with the am/fm radio not digital though ,close to peltors but not a ear muff $20 at walmart they work great
    the dealer here wants $80 for peltors and the peltors are to hot to wear in the summer.
