    Hi All,
    I have taken to wearing earplugs for everything I do now (from mowing to chainsawing, splitting, and even using my saws/Dremel), so I'd like to pick up some earbuds that sound good and reduce noise. I think I want to stay away from 'noise canceling' versions for price & weight/size.

    Suggestions?

    I've been using these since the early '80s.

    I used to work security in a rock concert house. Often right up against the stage forming a human chain with the other of my group which held back the crowds durring the likes of Todd Rudgren/Pretenders/Warren Zevon finalies (pirotecnics, blasting loud speakers, etc). They work great!

    Then I had three kids. Worked great then too.

    Worse thing that ever happened was after waking up from a dream where I was eating very juicy shrimp, I found a chewed up ear plug on the pillow next to my head.

    I use the helmet when felling or working in the trees, but for splitting and bucking I only wear earphones and glasses. Thanks for the recommendation on the plugs, but those don't play music!
