    I'd be snagging those earbud cords left and right. Started using a Walkman back in the '80's and was constantly being snagged.

    I have the ultimate setup. I have a set of peltors and xm myfi. I tune the peltors to 88.1 and the myfi rebroadcasts the xm tunes and stuff right to the headset!! I love it. all cordless if you get the myfi unit high enough. Sometimes i have to put on the external antenna for the xm but i love not commercials!!

    I use a walkman with the ear bud phones. they are kinda like ear plugs as you roll them between your fingers and insert into your ears and they open up. I bought the $7 ear protector muffs from J.Thomas and put those over them. I tuck the cord in my shirt and put the walkman in my front pocket. This keeps the cord out of the way. I use rechargeable batteries that give me about 20 hours of play.

    I guess if you are buying them for the crew then it would be easier to by the all in ones, but it would be cheaper to give them the $7 ones and let them supply their own radio if they want one.

    Yep, black and yellow. emailed company - no response. I am interested in the walkie talkie worktunes. Those would come in super handy. I think I will call the company later today and see what I can come up with.

    Makes you wonder why in large markets, there are no 100% news/weather radio stations on FM???

    I think we have one here, but never listen to it. Best one is on AM. Good poin, wonder why there aren't any on FM? ;)
