    And if you get the cord to plug in an AM source, they become even better. Nothing like listening to G. Gordon or any of the other news talk shows to make the day go by faster.

    Get yourself one of these. They are very effective, and not at all cumbersome like ear muffs. Keep extra plugs in truck in a plastic sandwich bag just in case someone forgets a pair, or looses a plug durng the day. I guess I have 5 guys using them. We work from March 1 thru mid January, and I got tru about $120.00 per season at most. They are a great way to CYA w/ your worman's comp too. This way, employees can't claim hearing loss/problems to your equipment as long as you enforce the rule.

    In the summer I wear (disposable) ear plugs. In the cooler months I wear ear muffs, just too hot in the summer for those things!:)
