    I prefer the foam inserts in the summer. The ear muff style works real good for blocking the loud noises, I just think they get to hot in the summer.

    I use the peltor and listen to the radio when I'm cutting grass.

    I was doing a parking lot earlier today and forgot my hearing protection. Listening to that WB blower and the backpack for about an hour straight SUCKS! My hearing is still muffled. You can bet I won't forget next time. I would like to get the muffs with some tunes though.

    I have the worktunes, they are comfortable and listening to music sure makes the day go by faster.

    my phone is a motorola sliver. it has the mp3 player built in. I use it along with muffs. keeps the music going and I never miss a call cause it stops the music when the phone rings.

    Worktunes. Like everyone else with a homedepot around them. $50 and I got tunes for work. Cant go wrong. I'll toss in some foam plugs once in a while to cut back on the tan lines around the ears. Looks kind of silly when you go out and have big circles around your ears. Thats about the only thing besides rakes that I'll buy for the biz from the depot.

    My wife got me some ear muffs from Radio Shack for Christmas, and they have a digital radio built in. I like them so far.
