    Works for me. The sun eats plastic down here like you wouldn't believe. The earphones only last a few years down here before they become brittle and break.

    I have them. and I listen to them even when I am not working. they are called peltors. you can pick them up at walmart or home depot for around $50. mine have been going for a year and a half now. they have pretty good fm reception, but the AM reception is only average.

    I agree. They are called peltors, but its in fine print on the packages now. Its easier to see the words AO safety or something like that. Same thing, its just something that confused me when I was looking for them

    Ipod earbuds under the stihl earprotectors, works great and you select the music.

    However, they do manage to keep the noise at an acceptable level, playing music that will not turn up so loud that you cannot hear the equipment, safety 1st.

    The down side is that they do NOT! deliver high fidelity sound, they have a foam covering over each speaker, which makes it sound kind of muffled...

    The reception is not great. Stations can fade in and out. It's hard to lock onto a signal using the tuning knob, will change frequency if you happen to brush your head against something while working.

    Makes the job more enjoyably.
