Hearing is very important.

Mowing, trimming & even blowing can harm your ears if you are not protected.

So for those of you who own a set or earmuffs, what brand do you have? What do you recommend?

Am/Fm radio baby!

AHHHH!!! I wanted those ones!!!! I couldn't find them at any dealers.

Mine are boring, yours are nicer.

:(

I love wearing them, it gives me a reason to ignore customers... as long as you don't make eye contact, you are home free.

Yeah, i want to trade mine in for the new ones, just not long after i bough my pair, they came out with ones that you can plug your ipod into it if you don't like the radio

If your dealer don't have any, just send me a cheque and i'll send you a pair, we have alot of them at my dealer. ;)

The more gear & accessories I have, like earmuffs, the more I feel like a superhero, or one yet to be discovered.

It's like Batman, no powers, just awesome gadgets.

I wonder if they will ever create a superhero/villain based off of a lawn service owner....

Imagine falling into a truckload of grass, & waking up with grass powers? Hmm... Needs work.

I already put together a picture for laughs;

I was never a fan of ear muffs, sweat getting caught in the muff just didn't work for me. In my profession (machine mechanic) the best way I've dealt with noise was ear plugs. Best ones were the wired multi-use bullet reusables.

Similar to these:

Best thing is you can just throw them in your shirt pocket and whenever they get dirty you just wash them anywhere. They last about a year, for just a few bucks.

Thanks my friend!

My father/mother & law took me to lunch & they got the restaurant to sing happy birthday to me... Never saw it coming.

Trimmer string is great, if it didn't exist I would have bough socks... Putting on socks is probably the best part of my day.

I just found these and they look like a great item to have.

Connect your Bluetooth®-equipped mobile phone to the Husqvarna Landscaper Radio. The phone can be carried in your pocket or in your bag, max range of 10 feet. The hearing protectors are equipped with a microphone that is adjusted in "stand-by" position when it is not in use. For incoming calls it is easily folded down into "talking" position, and by a simple touch on the "talk" button the phone is activated. The microphone is noise compensated, which means that it works in a noisy environment

That looks like a great product alright. Do you know how much they run? The noise compensated part is great.
