    Default mp3 welding hoods

    i know hoodlum makes alot of cool looking hoods and they have one now that has a fm tuner in it. i also know that radio stations suck. they overkill the songs and never play what i want to hear. i had the idea of putting an mp3 player inside a hood a couple of years ago but havent seen them on the market. they gotta be out there, anyone know where?

    Why not get a reg. mp3 player and wear it under your hood.......just run the wires for the ear phones up the back of your shirt etc..........

    i have jackson nexgen, with a sandisk mp3 mounted under the the top of my hood with velcro tape and it seems to work fine for me, the reason i used the velco tape is so it is easier to change the batteries and i also use it in my chainsaw helmet and for other things.

    Headphones / earbuds are not allowed at my work. WCB wont permit it. Earplugs are a must. However, I just bought a sony 320 watt boom box for the welding shop, it plays mp3s, and works well, sounds good even with earplugs in.

    i have a milwalkee radio with an aux. plug in the back and a 2 gig samsung mp3 that i use at work. it all works pretty good but, when both mills are running, all 4 burn tables, x number of grinders, not to mention the hum from the pulse arc i run 98% of the time, it really doesn't work that good. the really cool thing is to charge my mp3 you just put it in usb port, with the drill and burn tables all being on line i can always keep it charged.

    anyway, i was hoping such a critter was on the market, it would make work alot more enjoyable if i could hear my music.

    If you don't mind spending the $$$$$ and do a little searching ....

    At a motorcycle show I saw a vendor who sold custom molded earplugs.

    The kicker was in 2 models he inserted sound transducers for MP3/Radio usage.

    They were neat earplugs as they sorta twisted into the ear.

    Just did a quick search and found these ....

    Will look for the one I saw at the show.


    Here is the one from the Motorcycle Show ... the page shows the music monitor earplugs ...

    Go to their homepage http://www.earinc.com it seems the are EXPERTS in hearing protection.

    Here is what they say about their " Competition Sports Monitor "

    Designed specifically to block out background and harmful ambient noises, these have been well sought after stereo earphones by frequent travelers, motorcyclists, pistol and trap shooters and many industrial workers. Available in generic and custom fitted models.
