    I’m having a hard time looking for a hard hat mounted ear muffs that are am/fm and Bluetooth. I don’t need two way radio or any mic on the muffs. Just want to listen to my music from my phone. What do you guys use/like.

    Thinking of going to tiny Bluetooth wireless earbuds. They work with anything and everything.

    Listening to shop tools wine isn't much fun either. It gets distracting after three or four hours, right guys?

    I'll be milling soon so...

    I have Bluetooth ear buds. They don’t fit in the muffs too well. Unless I get the pelotor x5. Those things look huge.

    I contacted 3m and they don’t offer hard hat mounted am/fm Bluetooth muffs. I noticed the mounting on the side of the ear cups is the same through out a majority of the 3m peltor line. So I’m going to get some basic hard had muffs and the am/fm Bluetooth work tunes and see if I can modify one to work with the other.

    Sort of

    Am/fm and bluetooth for music from my phone. I don’t need the ability for two way radio or phone call. So no boom mic.

    So this is what I came up with. I took a regular set of peltor 101 hard hat mounted muffs. I noticed how the muff mounted to the hard had frame work the same way my work tunes am/fm only muffs did to the standard head band

    [​IMG]

    According to 3m, any worktunes muff can’t be hard hat mounted because of the wire that runs in the head band.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    False. It fits just fine. I’ll admit, the wire between the muffs could be a few inches longer but is long enough. I tucked it above the head support so I don’t ever feel it, unless I swing the muffs up on the sides of the hard hat, then it’s a touch short.

    This was free as I already had the stuff, and I know I wanted Bluetooth capabilities to my phone. But this is basically what I was shooting for. I’m rock this out for a while and see if I really need bluetooth. It does get unbalanced when I put the muffs up on the side of the helmet.
