    I use the yellow ones. Got them at Lowes or HD, not sure which, for $49.95. They seem to work great. I use them all day when I am working. I not sure what the differences are. Check the web sight, maybe you can find info there.

    The yellow ones are what I have and the most common. They are a life saver against both the engine noise and getting bored. I normally listen to talk radio. The yellows are analog tuning though. Talk her into spending a $100 or ever how much it is to upgrade to the digital tuning ones (not sure what color those are) as they will pick up the stations better. Also these are all HOT in the summer if you are in hot climates and I rarely wear them here in NC Jun-Aug.

    as far as i see on the sellers pages, the only difference described is the color, and the yellow has a NRR rating of 25, the grey 22. just figured there would be more then that little difference, you know. why even make another product so similar.

    do you get good reception with those?

    I have the yellow ones. When you fine tune it into the radio station, the reception is great.

    Adam, I have the ones on top in yellow. I like them a lot and they work very well. I wish the AM worked better but I attribute that to the area I'm in. I picked mine up at ACE Hardware for $49, they matched Wal-mart.

    Nice Christmas gift!

    I have many pairs from Burgundy to yellow to blue and they all are really good units...
