Some small 'ear bud' type "headphones" (they insert into your ears and don't have a head band) should fit inside roomy muff-type hearing protectors. While I haven't done this during shop conditions, I just tried this with my Sony ear buds inside cheap liquid-cushion hearing protectors sold for shooting and they fit just fine with no uncomfortable pressure points. The liquid cushions seem to seal well around the wires.



: Just spent too many hours in the shop listening to the drone of a ROS and
: looking at the stereo I can't hear. Does anyone have a decent way of being
: able to listen to tunes while sanding -- good earphones which fit into
: hearing protectors or headsets which block out the ROS noise?
: thanks
