    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

    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.
