Listening to your favorite tunes in the shop doesn’t have to mean turning the stereo up louder than the machinery you’re using or settling for bulky audio earmuffs. Plugfones are compact earphone headphones with a 25dB noise reduction rating that can be plugged into your portable music device or smartphone. They come with one pair each of silicone and foam earplugs so you can choose the style you prefer, plus an “extra long” cord and a 3.5mm plug that’s compatible with most audio equipment.
Plugfones are available through Infinity Cutting Tools for $25.90. Replacement foam or silicone earplugs come in five-pair packs for $8.90.
