I like listening to podcasts in the shop but I can’t hear it over the noise most of the time, especially sanding when I need the distraction most. I’ve tried earbuds butt you get a little sweaty and they fall out. I also don’t like to keep my iphone in my pocket because I’m afraid I’ll crush it trying to lift or shove something. I think what I need is a wireless headset but it needs to be heavy duty enough to stay stable. If it was big enough to provide sound isolation that would be great, otherwise small enough to fit earmuffs over the top.

Has anyone else already solved this problem?

I tried wireless headphones – they suck. They get hot and sweaty too. too heavy and they have static sounds from machinery.

I installed a Home theater.

42” flat screen
Sony 600 watt receiver
cable box, DVD player
4 sat. surround speakers
150 watt sub woofer.

turn it up
