    Any good suggestions for radio earmuffs? I will be using them for work not for shooting. I know it's not realy hunting or fishing related but I figured you guys might be able to point me in a good direction. My number one concern is noise reduction. They need to be able to block out continuos noise from loud machinery. What is a good noise reduction rating? Also I want to keep it under $50. Right now I use just regular old earmuffs but I get board easily so I would like a pair I could listen to the radio or my iPod with.

    Some I have had with radio's were sensitive to direction so when you turned your head the station would fade out. Maybe the newer ones have taken care of that problem. I would look at some sold by the chain saw companies, Sthil comes to mind.

      Don't know what you do for work, but perhaps consider the hazards of listening to the radio while doing so in a situation where your hearing is already reduced to begin with...if somebody is trying to communicate an important message to you, like "GET OUT OF THE WAY!" you may not hear them. Sometimes the price of being bored is being a little more safe, and which is more valuable...a little entertainment, or your life and all of your limbs?

        I've thrown my ipod earbuds into a regular set of noise reducing muffs before. Cheap, easy, and it works. For whatever reason, it wasn't comfortable with the earbud in my ear and then muffs on top, but just setting the earbud inside the muff worked fine for me.
