    What do you guy listen to while spending those seem to be never ending days on the mower. what kind of hearing protection do you wear? What kind of music do you listen to? I have PELTOR hearing protection with built in fm tuner. My cousin has his Ipod and puts plain ear muffs over it, seems like it wouldnt be loud enough for me but it works.

    I bring this up because yesterday i forgot my PELTOR muffs at home and hand to snag a regular pair from the truck. that i think was the worst mowing day i have ever had. It seemed so long and frusterating:hammerhead:

    What are your thoughts?

    I wear the peltors too.... Here in my area we have a radio station that plays some music but mainly talk shows that are funny - like the typical morning show most radio stations have - I listen to that mostly.

    I know what you mean about having a boring day on the mower without music.....

    I like to listen to podcasts on my mp3 player. I too have been caught laughing on the rider looking silly.

    I just use plugs, all the low limbs i usually have to mow around would probably jerk earmuffs off my head. To me mowing is like riding a motorcycle you can clear your head and all you have to concentrate on is what your doing, But im sure listening to a radio every now and then would be nice though.
