    I use work tunes when mowing, but during cleanups when I'm running the blowers all day on my back I use foam inserts and work tunes over them. Can still hear the music just enough and that's all I hear. I got tired of my ears ringing all night

    Have had the worktunes and didn't care for them at all. I've been using ear buds listening to Pandora. I am tired of the wire. Looking for something better and since I will be working alone this year wanted something with bluetooth so I can take calls from the office or the other truck.

    3m foam earplugs. they are comfortable and can be bought in a box of 200 pairs or more really cheap. i hate wearing ear muff type pressing against my ears and especially when it's hot outside like 100 degrees.

    Disposable foam earplugs here. I prefer Quiet! Please by Flents...can get them at many drug stores in boxes of 25 pairs for ~$8. Though, they've been harder to find in the last couple of years. I might start ordering them online in bottles of 50 pairs:

    Depending upon how dirty they become, I can usually get 3-5 days out of each pair before tossing them out.
