Great Headphones – ridiculous cable needed for MP3 I bought these headphones to wear while woodworking and cutting the grass. I am happy to say that they do a GREAT job. They have switches on the back of the right headphone that are easy to reach while you are wearing them. The top switch is the noise cancelling/amplification switch and the bottom one is the radio on/volume. The noise cancelling/amplification is amazing. I switched it on and I heard the fountain across the street and birds chirping as if they were right in front of me. Then I picked up a hammer and slammed it down on the workbench and I heard the hammer hit, but it sounded as if I tapped the bench. That is the beauty of these headphones – you can hear everything, but not to a damaging level. You still get the feedback you need from your tools but it is at a level that is pleasant. You can even listen to the radio and still hear everything you need to provided you don’t turn up the radio volume too loud – you shouldn’t need to since you are blocking out the…

Better than expected I found this set to be very impressive. The noise blocking is outstanding to say the least. Along with the built in radio sure makes yard work a pleasure while running landscaping equipment a couple hours per week.What I found very impressive is the active surround sound.

When you turn on the surround sound, you actually hear everything as if you were not wearing this unit and actually louder as it will amplify slightly, but you you have full volume control for that as well.I find the radio to perform very well. I believe those that complained in other reviews around the web were probably in areas with a lot of buildings or structures which would tend to cause that. Out in the open, I never experience static once a station is tuned in.Now If radio commercials drive you mad, then here’s a simple fix. I purchased the audio cable that allows attachment of other audio devices such…

Problem with headset The unit worked as advertised EXCEPT the AM radio is sensitive to direction. When I turn my head to a certain direction, while listening to the radio, the station fades. This is very annoying while working in my shop or mowing the lawn. This happens only with the AM radio not the FM radio.I talked to an engineer at peltor and they are aware of this problem,but they do not seem to be planing to do anything about it.
