Default Music while mowing?

Having trouble finding ear buds that “seal off” most of the sound. What are y’all using? My father in law uses those old school muffs with an fm radio. I used to make fun of him, not so much anymore.

I use these atleast 3 days a week during mowing season, sometimes 5 days. I'm on the second season and still doing great and excellent battery life.

I use these when doing loud work. Bluetooth and good battery life.
When not playing music, they block sound just like regular plugs.

Regular apple ear bud type deals with the cord. Too cheap for fancy ones I guess

If your running a cotton picker you should be listening to any change is the sound. lawnmowing should be done with the same care, music is for concerts!

I agree with this. Several years ago, I was mowing and my wife came out of the house and flagged me down. I took my headphones out and there was an awful squeal coming from the mower deck. Shut it down and got off of the mower. The spindle bearings had went out and the clippings on the mower deck were on fire. I still listen to music when I mowed, but the volume is down, or I only use one headphone. I like the Skull Candy Bluetooth headphones.

Did you hear that cotton picker about to catch on fire last year?

ISOtunes
If I remember right I think they are specifically made for the lawn / landscape crowd.

I saw 2 round bailers burn last year. Headphones or no headphones...when one of those go up, you better get your tractor unhooked quick!

If you are a good mower and take proper care of it why worry. But all that said I can still hear well enough to know if some thing is going with my mower. I'm not blowing my ears out while cutting grass just protecting them. Common sense always works.

I bought the Jlabs JBuds probably 2 years ago and they are still going strong. They were $50 then, just looked now they are $30 on Amazon. They do a pretty good job or canceling out noise, probably not as good as the air pods though.

The last two spindles that went out, I could feel the difference in the vibrations right away. Not terribly worried about that.

Mexican RAP - Rollin CHI to the CANO in my hood. I don't mow, they do. And they do a darn good job!

The tractor has a radio and A/C in the cab.
At home I pay a kid so I guess I can listen to music in the house while he sweats.

I don't need them. My new neighbor decided to start playing music loud enough I can hear it in my house 100 yards away and it is still playing at 10:30 PM.

By the time I find a station to listen to, the four man crew that mows my yard will be done and gone.

These work great.

A little pricey but got these for Christmas. By far the best I’ve had. I use them in mechanical rooms at work and on the mowers.
