    Default Headphones in the shop

    OK, so headphones aren't exactly tools, but maybe it's close enough...

    In the shop where I work, the other guys like to listen to 80's rock n' roll all day long, and I'm really awfully tired of it. Can't hardly hear myself think. I would like to find some kind of ANR headphones that I can connect to my little mp3 player and wear while working that will block out the radio noise so I can listen to something I like... some jazz, classical, John Denver, a podcast. Anyone know of some type of headphones that would do the job?

    We aren't allowed to wear headphones around the aircraft, where I work. Safety first.

    Hard to beat good earplugs, silence is golden. Bring in a jambox and blast some James Blunt, your coworkers will love it!

    I wonder, is it also a safety hazard when your brain is dulled from being bombarded with loud, repetitive, annoying music for 8 hours every day?

    Do they do a good job of canceling out other people's music? As opposed to general noise?

    Well its an excellent point. In a busy loud shop you have hearing protection on, you can hear little else at times. Personally I don't see a difference. If I choose to listen to an audiobook.

    I wear a single ear bud mono headphone at work. It allows me to listen to music. As well as still being able to answer the door and phone. I take it off when we are directly working on an aircraft. And put in my corded foamies and David Clark’s.
