    There is a guy that comes to the range here every couple of months. He makes injection molded custom earplugs that will go into an ipod, and what's even better is the speakers (driver), is down below your chin, so the sound is incredible. The down side is you can't detect squibs or other problems while using them.

    Point taken.

    Secondly, if you can't safely handle a firearm with music on, what is going to happen if you have to use your firearm with people screaming, crying, dogs barking, and people running around you?[/QUOTE]

    That's a rather specious argument as far as I am concerned, but you are more than entitles to think that.

    As for all the rest ... well to each his own, I guess. Some things, IMHO, are not candidates for multi-tasking.
    I meant that background music is the least of your worries when it comes to hearing the range officer when everyone is shooting and has hearing protection.

    These include a jack for an MP3, etc. player. they work with my iPhone. Sound quality is poor (no bass) but you can adjust the EQ in the iPod, iPhone, etc. to compensate somewhat. When you plug the cord into the headphones they turn off the microphone feed that normally feeds in ambient sound.

    Look for "in ear" or "in ear canal". I have a pair of Shure E2C that I wear at work with the chipping hammer. I also use them mowing the lawn and weed eating. Because they go into your ear canal like an ear plug would, forming a good seal, they block out everything. I'm deaf to everything around me when I have them on. Never tried it shooting but I'm sure they'd work. They come with an assortment of tips so you can find the one that is most comfortable for your ears. Throw some ear muffs over that and you'd probably not hear a nuke.

    There are electronic hearing protectors (headphone style) that have input jacks, but the ones that work tend to be pricey.

    For all those that say music is too distracting while shooting, they must not ever have the radio on while driving. Even range commands are simple as pie compared to most driving situations.

    According to the NTSB, the number two cause of driver-distraction crashes is changing the radio/CD player/Sat radio. Number one is talking to the passenger(s).

    I remember a long time ago reading about a olympic shotgun shooter that listened to a cd player (before the ipod craze) while training. I forgot my plugs one day and used my "scull candy" noise canceling buds while shooting without music. They were almost as effective as real plugs. I would recommend trying them out, look at Best Buy or a mall FYE.....

    Yeah, when you spend 2 or 3 hours mowing the grass, a little music can make the time go by a lot faster.

    I'm sure those sound better than anything else in the world for the price of a 1911!
