You’ll enjoy convenient, comfortable hearing protection from the WorkTunes headset, which features lightweight gel/foam cushions that feel great even after wearing for an entire day, an adjustable stainless steel headband with padded top. Hearing protectors are recommended whenever you encounter extended periods of sound levels regularly exceeding 85 dBA–essentially, a level of noise where you feel the need to shout in order to be heard by someone just 3-feet away.

The radio and its controls are housed in one cup, and you’ll be able to quickly tune to your desired AM or FM radio stations with the easily accessible seek/scan tuning buttons. Reception strength may vary depending upon location. You can also save up to 10-preset stations with a dedicated key that sits below the LCD screen, which offers a large-sized display of the radio frequency. Other controls include a combined on/off/volume control and a toggle button that switches between AM and FM radio. The LCD screen also offers a low battery indicator of all controls.

You can also connect an optional MP3 player (such as an Apple iPod), CD player or other portable devices via the stereo input jack. Additionally, the WorkTunes headset protects your hearing from both the external environment and the music you’re listening to thanks to a volume control limiter that tops out at 85 dB.

The radio and digital input are powered by 2 AA batteries (not included), which provide approximately 140 hours of operating time.

Almost perfect I tune and rebuild pianos as a hobby, so you can imagine how much I value my hearing. I never even swing a hammer without hearing protection, so I have a pair of earmuffs on pretty much all the time while in the shop.Of course, I also love music. Since I got the Worktunes headphones, I can listen to my music clearly without having to blast it over the sounds of power equipment.Pros: Digital tuning. Memory presets. Lasts 2 solid days on AA batteries when listening to the radio. Pretty durable. Great reception in rural areas (as good as can be expected from an antenna of this size). Speaker sound quality and dynamic range from an external MP3 player is excellent – much better than I expected.Cons: In cities and areas of strong signals, the receiver frontend saturates easily and you will hear several stations poorly at once (intermodulation). This is a common problem for many simple FM receivers.The volume knob doesn’t function for the MP3…

Don’t Purchase This Worktunes AM/FM headphone radio (#90541) isn’t worth buying, even at the reduced price Amazon is selling them for. They are junk.I was persistent and tried out two(2) of the Worktunes from Amazon, thinking the first one was just defective from the factory. Amazon was good at replacing them promptly.I think the unit is good for hearing protection against outside loud sounds or perhaps as a MP3 only listening device (I hadn’t tried that) and, though tight on the head, it fits around ears well(a little tight) and is fairly comfortable. But, as a digital AM/FM radio, it is the poorest radio I’ve ever owned. I’ve seen similar comments from others hear.I have a similar digital AM/FM (with an input jack) headphone radio that I purchased about 10 years ago from Radio Shack that is three (3) times better for listening to AM/FM stations while working. I wanted to replace it because the outside noise wasn’t being blocked enough when I cut my grass or worked in the woodshop…
