Hey all. Brief topic.
I work as a landscaper. I run my own business - and I cut grass. The machines I use go from 80-90db and possibly higher easily.
I own these headphones as my ear protection. They just happen to double as alright Bluetooth headphones with microphones for calls. They’re also extremely popular - over 6,000 Amazon reviews.
The thing is - these mics are incredible. I was on a call with my family one time, while cutting grass, and they couldn’t tell the machine was on. I had to talk loudly, of course, but this is a lawnmower going directly beneath me! They were so stunned they recorded the call to play back to me after. You could hear me clearly, but honestly I was shocked, too - no 80db lawnmower sound, that’s for sure.
Might be worth looking into who designed the ANC mics for these babies.
