    this is my first season using peltors. i have no trouble at all, unless i'm in certain areas with bad reception (for "am" atleast). FM is always crystal clear, but i listen to sports all day, and sometimes i have to just "touch" the dial to retune slightly. no big deal..
    free your consiuos! put them on ebay cheap, and let me know when you do. :D c'mon, get rid of the junk... $15 a piece :angel:

    byw, which model is it? the yellow ones? i have the peltors worktunes that are black and grey. i don't know if there is a mechanical difference.

    I've found my self listening to my peltors instead of the radio. I never miss a minute of rush now. lol. I get crystal clear reception on AM, but sometimes FM does not come in very well. I wish that the dial was stiffer too.

    funny thing though, my peltors got better reception after I dopped them. ;)

    Hey Mower Babe, just take them back to where you bought them (which I think you said you're going to do). Do you have an ACE Hardware nearby? They still have the older version, black & yellow, I just saw them today. If you can't find any let me know and I can go pick those up and ship them over to you.

    FGA, you got your Peltors for xmas right? I would assume they are the 2004 model. I sure like mine, I use them all the time even around home, when I'm cutting or stacking wood, working in the garden, or when I'm in trouble with my wife... :D

    Has anyone ever tried zip tying the antennae to the headband? I think I'm going to strap mine down, I'm tired of having them yanked off my head when I go under branches while on the Z. I always forget to duck far enough to clear my antennae... :angry:

    Ya, because, after you drop them, they only want to get AM! I have an older pair that only get AM, and I ain't into Rush's BS, and a newer pair that I have to mess with to get FM to come in.
    Hey, Rush fans, buy my old pair! THey get AM fine. Useless to me.

    I bought mine a year ago. They work ok. Sometimes I have to fine tune a station in. The only thing that bugs me is that in my area there is a spanish or tejano station in between darn near every big radio station and sometimes when I am mowing larger lawns and turn alot, I end up picking up those tejano stations and it drives me nuts. It has happened often enough that I have heard the same tejano songs several times and can sing along now!

    I got fed up and bought a IPOD Shuffle, put the earbuds in and put the Peltors over top. Works well. Get's about 12 hours of music on one of those. I here ya Buck!!! I'm gonna tie mine down too. :dizzy:
