I'm the occasional pod person too. I usually don't wear them while in the garden, but there are two chores I always put them in for. The first is mowing the lawn or picking up leaves with the mower. It is rechargeable so not quite as loud as a leaf blower. I use it to pick up my leaves because I want them chopped for the compost. Oak leaves take two years to compost for me if they aren't chopped up first. Though the electric lawn mower is less noisy than most, it is still very noisy. I wear my noise canceling headphones so I can hear my iPod.

The second is double digging the garden. It is hard work that I don't love doing after about a half hour. If I have entertainment I'll keep it up for a couple of hours. I've gone as long as five. I put some good fiction stories on my iPod and get lost in that.

Other times in the garden I love to hear the sounds of the birds. My favorite sound is on a hot day you can hear the bees buzz even when you aren't right next to them. I love hearing them work.
