    Does anyone know of a quality headset (preferably around the ear headset) that can be utilized with an iPod Nano while working? I have been using a Worktunes Headset, which have worked out great but I also want to be able to use the iPod this year. Thanks for your help.

    For safety sakes I never listen to music while mowing. I would think you commercial insurance carrier might have an issue with that. We use Laser lite ear plugs. They muffle the sound enough to prevent ear damage but allow you to still hear the mower etc...

    I have set of work tunes with an input for an ipod. They also have a built in radio. Very nice. Cost me about 45 bucks and well worth it.

    Well not sure how they feel about it ..but I can tell you I can still hear and feel the machine and because I listen to music ..I am VERY aware of my surrondings at all times.

    same here....somrtimes something will get around a blade and the tone changes...once you learn the sound of your mower with headphones on....if something changes you will notice it

    I just looked on Peltor/AOsafetys website and don't see them listed. Let me look a little more and see what I can come up with. Mine are only a year old.
