    Where should I buy ear muffs that have a radio built into them and protect your ears from all the noise? I have noticed that my hearing is becoming slightly worst than it was before I started doing this business.

    Sears has some microear radio headphones for $25.

    Does anyone know if there is any out there that allow you to plug in a ipod, but act as a earmuff like you guys are talking. Or if not are the radios on them digital or analog as far as setting the settings. I am looking at getting some instead of just using my ipod earbuds. Thanks

    I have the Stihl radio headphones. I like them, but wish they had the digital tuner. I believe I paid around $70 about a year ago. Husqvarna makes the digital version, but from what I hear they are very salty!

    Post Mowing, can you post a link to where you can get the ones you got if they do have the ipod connection? Thanks!, If you do not have the radio or anything on, are they pretty sound? Thanks
