LIMITATIONS: WARNING - This hearing protection product helps reduce exposure to hazardous noise and other loud sounds. Misuse or failure to wear hearing protectors at all times that you are exposed to noise may result in hearing loss or injury. For proper use, see user instructions or call 3M Technical Service toll free at 1-800-494-3552. In Canada, call 1-800-267-4414. *CAUTION: 3M strongly recommends fit testing of hearing protectors.

If the NRR is used, 3M recommends that it be reduced by 50% or in accordance with applicable regulations.

You will eventually need replacement ear pads, mine lasted a year or so with heavy use. I looked here and at 3M's site for replacement ear pads but could not find the part number so I called 3M 1-888-364-3577 and was offered complimentary replacements free of charge shipped to my door. I asked for the part number assuming next time I would be on my own but was told 3M does not sell them however they will always send replacement ear pads free of charge. Works for me. Poke your finger in through the inside hole of the earpad, get your finger behind the black plastic ring, and gently snap it out. The earpad is attached to the black plastic ring and it snaps on and off.
Great service from 3M and worktunes are a decent product imo that gets the job done but needs some improvement from the bluetooth side of things which is how I use these.
I frequently work with loud tools and equipment such as circ saws, miter saws, chainsaws, lawn equipment, table saw, too many more to list. I listen to podcasts while I work so my worktunes are always connected to my phone via bluetooth. The hearing protection is outstanding and I can go full throttle with my husqvarna 350 while listening to whatever provided the volume output from my phone is 100% which I then adjust the volume from there on the worktunes, and the worktunes are adjusted properly so that the earpads are sealing flat to your head over your ears.
Worktunes are far better than earbuds for listening to what you want to hear over a loud tool, but if you use bluetooth from your phone earbuds with a mic make it far easier to make and receive phone calls. There is no mic on these 3M worktunes. Get a phone call while your worktunes are connected to your phone via bluetooth and things get tricky, it's a pita and best to avoid trying to answer. Here's what happens: the worktunes go silent, you have to grab your phone to see who it is and if you answer it you listen through the worktunes and speak into the phone, if you hit speakerphone accidentally or the other person can't hear you then you're ripping the worktunes off your head. My earbuds that have a mic can answer and end a call with the push of a button on them, beforehand the phone number is called out so I can decide whether or not to answer, it's dead simple and it could be that way for these worktunes if they had a mic, the worktunes already have plenty of butttons. Too many and in the wrong places.
Whoever decided to place the power/volume/go back to beginning button where it sits on the left side front needs to spend a few days with the people this product was designed for. The name of the product is WORKtunes which in itself implies the user will be working with something that is loud and presumably heavy. Those of us that have rough hands know all too well that weilding heavy objects leads to profuse sweating and we sometimes turn our heads and wipe the sweat from our brow on our shirt sleeve. I accidentally hit that button that sticks out a mile at least a few times a day and it resets whatever I'm listening to to the beginning of the track. If I don't accidentally press that button something I'm working around will. I rarely hit my head at work but these monsters seem to make your head twice as big, you might even be tempted to fly a helicopter with these on.
I use rechargeable batteries and reliably get at least a full day, usually 2-3 days of use.
If the bluetooth fails to connect even after it's paired or you walk out of range and lose connection things can sometimes get squirrely to reconnect. It gets frustrating but the procedure that always works done in this order: is to turn off the work tunes, turn off your phone, turn phone back on make sure bluetooth is on, then turn on the worktunes and it should connect itself but you may have to go into bluetooth settings on your phone and manually connect to worktunes.
All that said learning the quirks of using these has been worth it to me. I reach for them when it's time to do some busy work with loud tools, definitely for the hearing protection. I like the fact these 3M worktunes have user replaceable batteries, that 3M sends out replacement earpads free of charge, and that I can connect to my phone through bluetooth for wireless convenience.
You pays your money and you takes your choice.
Why in the .. why would you ruin these headphones by adding in a volume limit like this?
At least give me the option to crank it up when the right song is on, or when I definitely don't want to hear a grinder or saw through the protection at roughly the same level as I do the song that I wish I was hearing louder.
Sigh.. Guess I'll add some bluetooth headphones to my other hearing protection.
The radio tunes well enough. The buttons are too hard to hit with hefty gloves on, and I hit them all the time on accident because they are large.
EDIT/UPDATE . April 3 2018 My Worktunes Bluetooth stopped working. AM and FM worked fine, the announcer stated that it had switched to BT but it wouldn't pair or play. None of my devices could see the Worktunes either. I emailed their customer support and with a few questions, they sent me a shipping label, I mailed off my headset and was told they'd either repair or replace them since I was inside the warranty period. I got a notice that they sent out a new pair for me! No charge even for shipping. 3M customer service made a very disappointing situation into an EXCELLENT one. I love my headset and I am now a big fan of 3M's customer service as well.

a headless voice tells you what station you are on and if the device is on or off.
Guys.. you have to read the instructions so you get full use out of it. (yah tough eh)
tried it with the wifey and couldn't here her call me to lunch.. so will be good for future screaming matches.
fit nice and decent quality. like the blue tooth.
comfy and not bad. good in winter!
all the functions work although i wont ever use line in. the aux cord is laughably short.
break in period : lots of people complaining about these being uncomfortable didnt wear them long enough to break in. they are just like getting new boots or glasses. probably takes a few weeks to get use to them.
sound quality is ok. nothing spectacular. good range on the bluetooth.
as mentioned by other people the voice assist is not your digital assistant. it only tells what mode you have headset in.
things i didnt like: the rubber cover for the aux port/ charger is not good. flimsy rubber that barely stays closed.
the cups are kinda large . i get why they did this but it makes wearing any type of glasses to put onm
have not tested battery life. i am using rechargable nimh. will update my review when i do.
