What should you look for in lawn care headphones?
There are several factors to look out for when it comes to selecting the best type of hearing protection for lawn care. Here's a look at these considerations:
Hearing protection is a top priority when you're working with loud equipment - and as you can see from the chart earlier on this page, lawn and yard maintenance is no exception to working with noisy equipment. Keep in mind that even prolonged equipment use at 85 dB may be enough to damage hearing over the long term and any exposure to noise at 120 dBA or above can lead to immediate hearing loss. Thankfully, the best Bluetooth headphones for mowing and yard work also offer adequate hearing protection that keeps noise levels under these volumes.
All ISOtunes headphones also include SafeMax™ Technology, a hearing conservation feature that ensures that all headphones limit volume output to 85 dB.
SafeMax™ Technology helps ensures OSHA compliance. More than 25 million Americans are believed to suffer from noise-induced hearing loss from exposure at work or during leisure activities. SafeMax Technology helps ensure that any professionals wearing ISOtunes headphones are safe from adding to this statistic.
Regardless of profession, workers strive to be as productive and efficient as possible. Simply put, doing so allows for more time during the day to do the things that we want to do - and less time put forth to do the things we need to do. The best headphones for lawn care and yard work won't just promote good hearing protection, but allow users to be more efficient in their everyday lives. One way is permitting users to take calls over their headphones via Bluetooth technology. This can save a lot of time by giving lawn and landscaping professionals the ability to speak with their clients as they work, rather than needing to return phone calls later in the day.
Comfort is also key when it comes to finding the best headphones for mowing. When you're working in the yard, you're bound to be breaking a sweat on the regular, so you want something that's going to stand up to these conditions and not let you down during the summer months. That’s why we’ve designed ISOtunes earmuffs to be lightweight with a ventilated foam headband for increased air flow. Our muffs are also equipped with memory foam ear cushions, so they feel snug and comfortable on your ears as you move about the shop. As for our in-ear models, each product includes a starter eartip pack of four different sizes so you can find your best fit and ensure maximum comfort. Learn more about ISOtunes eartips here.
Noise isolation, Bluetooth compatibility, and comfort are all important when it comes to finding your go-to mowing headphones. Another factor to consider is durability. On this note, ISOtunes headphones are more than just sweat and water-resistant, but dust resistant as well.
Another factor to consider is battery life. When you're a lawn care or landscaping professional, you're largely working outside and traveling from job site to job site. It's rare that you're able to settle down during the day and charge your headphones or other devices. Hence, it's important to have a battery that's going to last all day. Battery life on earmuffs and earbuds varies, but ISOtunes hearing protection devices typically have batteries that last anywhere from 10 hours to up to 50 hours before a recharge is necessary, making for all-day (and in some cases, multi-day) usage in between recharges.
Lastly, ISOtunes stands behind its products, offering a best-in-class one-year warranty. ISOtunes aren't just OSHA certified, but they are built to last in any environment.
