- AO Safety / Peltor Work Tunes AM/FM/MP3 Hearing Protection
- Brand: AO Safety | Category: Safety Equipment
I gotta have my music. In fact, for some reason I concentrate better when I have music going than when I don’t. However, with the scream of power tools, it can get lost. Not only that, but something has to help pass the time when sanding!
Well, the Work Tune does the job just fine. I picked this one up for $50 from Lowe’s with some Christmas money, and I’m thrilled with it.
First the hearing protection: It works great. I can hear the scream of the machines, but not so much as to cause anything approaching hearing damage. Basically, you can hear that it’s on and running fine, and that’s about it. Frankly, that’s all that I ask for.
Now, the radio. Again, it works great. It picks up every radio station I can pick up in my car, and they come in clear as a bell. It has a memory feature that lets me program my favorite stations in to scan…just in case one decides to have a talk radio marathon or something!
Here’s the kicker though…they’re pretty darn comfortable as well. I can wear them constantly, even if I don’t have the machines going, because I’m not waiting for an excuse to take them off or leave them off. Because they’re comfortable, folks are more likely to put them on, and that’s a big thing on a piece of safety equipment, I’m sure we can all agree.
All in all, I’m very pleased with this piece of equipment. My hearing is important to me, and I love my music. Now, I can have both!
