    I was going to start a thread about FM radio / hearing protectors. And from what I have read from other discussions that the Peltor seemed to be the preferred choice, even though they cost a lot more that other brands.

    What I was really looking for was, how well do the muffs hold up to everyday wear. I use regular hearing protectors and the muffs will only last about 4-6 months before they start to crack, and the foam starts to get a little ripe smelling from the constant sweating.

    And as long as I was in a searching mode I also did a Google search and found what I was looking for, so thought I would share it with ya'll. You can buy replacement hygene kit for them. (thats what I wanted to know)

    And this will be good news for some of you RUSH fans, as they also have a AM model on this page. Don't think that they offer as much protection as the FM models do, but they are cheap enough.

    And I think that this price for the FM model that some of you have is cheaper that what some of you paid.

    JJ Lawn,
    I have the Peltor HTRXS7A FM Stereo hearing protectors. I've had them for almost a year now and the foam is still like new. I wear them 6-8 hrs. a day. The foam also is very easy to remove & clean. If it gets really nasty it will be very easy to replace too.:) ;) :) ED

    I bought the worktunes a couple of months ago. For the money they are great. I highly recommend them if you want something not too expensive. I bought them from the link you supplied.

    I have had the Peltor HTRXS7A for about 4 years now and I've dropped them more than once. They have held up great. My next ones will be digital tuning though since the manual tune does drift some. I can't work without them now. ;)

    For those of you with the Peltor. Do they have a model that is re-chargable. I had the Elvex's that were re-chargable for over a year and one day they just quit and I can't figure out why. This was over a month ago but seems like longer. The music sure does make the day go by faster.

    Also if they are all batteries how long do they last?

    Thank you.

    I don't think Peltor has a rechargable, but 2 aa batterys last for a long long time.
