    Home depot has the big headphones with digital radio for like fifty bucks and they are awesome. You can even download mp3s to it. They've become like that perfect baseball mit when you were a kid. Can't work without them now.

    I've tried a lot of different ear buds in the last two years. I don't like the full head set either. Very uncomfortable for me. The best ear bud for noise isolation are the Etymotic research HF5's. They are the best. You don't have to turn up the ipod full blast to hear the music. They can be found online for about $100. There is also a new Etymotic model called The MC5 which sells for about $70. Same noise isolation. As for how durable they are I can't say. This will be my second season with the Etymotics.

    Same here. I dont do alot of mowing anymore, but when Im out helping one of the crews, I cant mow a blade of grass without wearing a pair of Peltors. Throw on some tunes and relax.

    My worktunes are also my shop radio. The only problem is when I'm under a car they can be a little bulky.

    I have said it a thousand times on this site before but I will say it again. PELTORS SUCK! They do not block noise that well and the tuner absolutely SUCKS and they generaly do not last more than 1 full season. I have had 2 pairs of them and 2 pairs of Elvex relax and the elvex blows the peltors away. Only reason I needed the second pair of Elvex was because after 2 full years I accidentally left them in the bed of the truck all winter. Stay the he.. away from peltors.
