    I hear you there.

    Worktunes suck, reception is spotty and they leave a nice wet ring of sweat around your ears. Not to mention they give me a headache from clamping on my head all day.

    Ipod for me now, all the time.

    Shure in-ear headphones. They seal to the ear canal and block the noise out. Pricey at 100 plus bucks for the pair, but they sound great.

    Those look cool.

    My biggest issue with the worktunes was crummy reception and commercials.

    I have to say ebay has some nice prices on head phone that are noise canceling,
    Which one's are best for picking up station I also know the wire that connects them is also the antenna, and for noise?

    Thanks

    Mike,

    I have been meaning to call you and ask; do you think that the Quiet-tunes by Elvex are better than the Peltors, or are they roughly the same as the Work-tunes?

    Thanks,

    Tim

    i use basic ear protection with a set of ear plugs that run to my razr. works good and i don't have to worry about any added weight due to battiers and bending the antenna.
