    I'd like to hear from someone that's tried both. I currently have the Peltor Worktunes but I'm kinda disgusted with the reception and quality of the radio they come with and thought I might try the Elvex Quiet Tunes. I don't want to get them and have the same problem, so I thought I'd ask first.

    Why dont you get an mp3 player with built in radio and earplug style earphones? Last year I purchased a iriver512mb mp3 player with the sony fontopia earbuds. I really like the setup, makes the day go bye faster :cool2:

    I started with the quie tunes by elveX.
    They messed up, couldn't hold a signal, sent back got a refund and
    got the elveX relax model. They have a high noise reduction rating, and rechargeable batteries.
    I have had them 2 years and the only problem is a speaker went south, my x employee spilled a whole 52 oz soda on them while we were going to another job.:gunsfirin :gunsfirin :gunsfirin :( :angry:

    My biggest problem with work tunes is the in and out reception.

    I have a set of Elvex that are about 7 years old and they work great still. The noise reduction really makes a difference after a day of working with them.

    I have 2 sets of worktunes. One is newer and much better than older model which is about 3 years old. To me I like the older Elvex much better. They are eaiser to control while on your head. The Elvex seem to do a better job of noise reduction so that you are not turning up the radio volume which can be just as bad on your ears.

    I paid $125 for the Elvex and $49 for the Work Tunes.

    I also use the elvex, Have had them about 4 years. Haven't had any problems with them, except I wish it had a.m. so I could hear some twins games. :)
