    Two things two look for: size and capacity.

    My son wears an mp3 player while mowing.
    His is about the size of a tube of chap-stick and can be worn around the neck (very light weight). I think it's a 64MG player which only holds about 20 songs.

    Sony makes the IPOD which has a 40 Gig capacity and will hold around 10,000 songs at any one time. Only problem is the size... it's light weight but about the size of a palm pilot.

    If you're handy with electronics, adapt a cheap pair of headphones by taking them apart and gluing the speakers into a set of hearing protection. It's tedious, but it works really well and you'll really save your hearing compared to trying to crank it over the mower noise.

    I use an Iriver mp3 player, it has 20G of space, and I think is one of the best sounding mp3 players....I don't know how I could live without it...
