    Are there any bluetooth headphones that would work well for cutting the grass?

    I thought I saw some around the holidays last year at Home Depot...

    I've used both LG Tones and have recently bought an over the ear pair of Sony BT earphones. The Sony's are really really good. Plus about $100 less than Beats. But both work well for mowing. I've used them all summer.

    Jaybird bluebuds X is the way to go. Mine get used almost daily for running, cycling, conference calls, hands free around the house, mowing the lawn, etc.

    Great sound, range, and battery life

    Thanks, those look pretty nice. I wasn't sure if I should get any that offer more ear protection while using lawn equipment (blower, mower, etc...).

    The earpieces come in 3 sizes so that you can tailor them to you and create a good seal

    Bluetooth headphones will not cut your grass! :D

    Just kidding. The suggestions for headphones here are good. If you're looking to protect your hearing and make it easier to hear, you should do what I do. Wear hearing protection earmuffs over your in-ear buds. This way, the mower sound is relatively quiet, and you don't even have to turn the music up very loud. It feels like you're just taking a nice walk around the yard. I'm a musician, so I'm very protective of my hearing. Yes, they look a little dorky, but I don't really care what people think.

    Here's the style I'm talking about, but you can generally get these in home improvement stores or sporting goods sections, etc.

    Why didn't I think of that?? I can use my current in-ears (which are wired) and then put these over them...

    Absolutely this. Use the savings to upgrade your IEM if you want.

    Yep, that's what I do. I have Bluetooth headphones I use for running, and I love the lack of wires, but I need the hearing protection, and they are over the ear style. So I just use the Apple Earpods with the hearing protection and it works great.

    Speaking of "why didn't I think of that?" concepts: Do you find that the Earpods don't fit well or fall out of your ears a lot? Throw a few of these badboys on there. Not only do they fit better, but they actually seal in your ear better. This makes the Earpods go from "cheap throwaway earbuds" to "These are my favorite earbuds!" in my opinion. :D
