In the summer they get abit hot and sweaty but still use them but they sure keep my ears nice and warm in the winter. Wish I could get an extra set for each hand.

I always wear headphones. Its really obnoxious to others in the area if you do not , could be considered flat out rude depending on where you are at and who is around. I can usually hear someone talking that is standing next to me even though wearing headphones but really tho why would I want to ? ... if I am detecting and paying attention to what Im doing then Im not having a conversation , Im detecting not talking. I will have the conversation when Im finished or during a break. Using headphones also saves battery life

I dont, because the signals sound different and throw me off.
