    Default Music: Wireless Headsets: Ipods what do you guys do for Music?

    My tractor has no radio. Not really interested in Radio but I have an MP3 player .
    Was thinking about a Wireless Headset set up so I can hop in and out without being Leashed in by a wired headset. These larger headsets also seem to provide more noise deadening in them to quiet the 2500 RPM it takes to run the PTO at speed.
    Has anyone done a wireless headset to an MP3 transmitter?
    Looking for a setup that can run off the Tractors 12V, I only see battery operated ones with AC adapters.

    Nowadays I need images along with the music, nothing short of that will do

    On the tractor I use noise cancelling ear plugs

    I'll be watching this one. I'd like something that would stream music via bluetooth from my iphone, yet offer some hearing protection from mower and tractor.

    i have played from a mp3 player in my pocket to headphones. in some cases i use the small earbuds that fit the ear good.. then put a pair of shooting muffs with deep and soft full ear covering pads on.

    I use an Ipod Shuffle hanging around my neck connected to a set of 24 dB hearing protectors that I bought for use with my scanner at racing events. When I get off the tractor the music goes with me. I also use them when I mow on the zero turn or run a weed eater.

    I use wired noise-canceling headphones. Works great. I run the wire inside my shirt to prevent tangling. WAY longer battery life vs Bluetooth. There is beauty in simplicity.

    I have several of these.

    Load them up with whatever, music, language, books, jokes, etc.

    I have a set of Bose Noise Canceling and cannot bring myself to use them on the tractor.

    I do use, however, these two headsets.

    A version of this

    Amazon.com: 3M Peltor WorkTunes Digital Hearing Protector, MP3 Compatible with AM/FM Tuner: Home Improvement

    And when they went missing, I bought these (then found the worktunes)

    Amazon.com: Ryobi Tek4 Audio Plus Noise Suppression Headphones RP4530: Electronics

    My review of these is that both are OK. I dislike the antenna on the worktunes but I have a canopy (I cannot get radio where I live). The Ryobi speakers are quieter, which can be problematic. So no, none are great, both are good. I would lean toward the Ryobi because they have the microphones if you are working with other people it is pretty great. The Worktunes are great if you want to listen to radio.

    But I hate the wires, so I bought this and velcroed it to my headsets

    Amazon.com: Aduro BTA1 Bluetooth Adapter Wireless Receiver with A2DP Technology - Lifetime Warranty - for Home Stereo , Portable Speakers , Headphones , Car Music Sound Systems , & More 3.5mm Media Devices: Electronics

    I do not have an Ipod, so I use my phone. This is a bonus as I can take calls while working on the tractor and not miss a beat. You have no idea how impressed LA City Folk (like other producers) call up and I say "hold on, gotta turn off the tractor".

    Anyway, this is the sytem that works for me.

    BUT..... I have had dreams of my own FM Station. Hook it up to my computer, play my itunes and get great music anywhere on the property. As there is no radio in the area I live I am not too worried about the FCC, but you should be aware of the laws that govern this

    I was just thinking about starting a thread on who uses head phones.

    Last Sunday I went down to the hunt club to finish up some work I had started. I took my headphones and they were nice riding down there. But once I got there I was grading out a road and moving some rocks that somebody had thrown in a mud hole. I couldn't hear the engine and started getting very sloppy and maybe dangerous with what I was doing. I almost felt confused. I took them off and everything went back to normal. I left them off til I headed the mile back to the house. I live on a dead end gravel road and the hunt club gate is at the end of the road, so no traffic.

    Does anybody else have this problem when wearing headphones. Or is just my own goofiness.

    Have you got a link to these? I could live with a wire if the hearing protection is good.
