    No, but they do have an mp3 input. Love my Worktunes. Wouldn't go without them.

    Wow, I'll stick with my Worktunes, but they do look nice.

    I'm not even sure what i have. They're yellow, and i got them from home depot. "Worx" brand maybe? They're in my truck, and i'm inside at the moment. I'm looking on upgrading though. One side is out and there is a short on the volume knob. The cover is missing, and i hold the batteries in with scotch tape. The batteries last a long time; probably 3 months. I mostly listen to local talk and walton and johnson. A few times, i drove all the way back home to get them before starting a job. A few times, i balled up napkins for hearing protection. They weren't digital , so everytime i bumped my head, my station would be off.

    Etymotic HF5 ear buds. They block out a lot of noise and I listen to music all day. Around $100 but worth every penny.

    Homeowner here:

    Lately I have been using cheap ear bubs with good sound results, but there are no sound osculation qualities, so I use ear muffs on top of the ear buds as well.

    That works very well, until I turn my head wrong, and then I get sound shock. SO I'm still looking for the perfect (yet not too expensive) set up.

    Thanks for all the info....

    It's amazing how many people ask me what kind of ear buds I'm wearing.

    Especially considering that they are just corded ear PLUGS.



    Sign of the times I guess.

    Once i used drummer headphones. Isolated the noise enough, but I ended up getting distracted by the wire and ran a PVC pool hose over. Had to replace that one...
