    Any of you guys use ear buds? That is what I prefer so I don't have a white ring around my ears from no sun plus your ears don't get hot with the buds. I have used several different pair from Walmart and they don't seem to stand up to the water to well. I need a new pair but don't wanna waist more money on cheap one if I can find a good pair that will last. I been thinking about ordering the ones from bose but they are just crazy expensive to tear up if they don't hold up any better than these I'm buying now. I do buy the more expensive ones at Walmart also not the cheap ones.

    Only problem i find with head phones is i tend to blow them out if i turn my music up too load While trying to drain out the mowers.

    I use worktunes take them on and off......never had a ring lol. But i like them because you dont hurt your ears by turning the music up too loud

    Best $50 bucks i ever spent on head phones!

    off topic but if you guys need in-ear headphones head to tj max and buy them there. you can get $30-$40 headphones for $6. i always buy 3-4 of them while im there because i break a pair a week it seems like. every pair i have bought has been very high quality

    Im very hard of hearing as it is so I really try to save all I got no days... buds dont cut it for protection skull candys are ok but pricey. Full muffs for me only.

    If you are looking for earbuds, try Klipsch S4. If you buy them at Bestbuy, etc, they are around $80.00. I purchased mine off of ebay for $50.00 with shipping included. They are better than I expected! I did a great deal of research prior to buying, and they are the best you can buy for under $100.00. In fact, I found one site that stated they were comparable or better than several in the $150 range for noise isolation and sound quality. You won't be dissapointed.
