If you have a large lawn or a property that requires a lot of yard work get some 3M Worktunes. About $50 and they're combination hearing protection and Bluetooth headphones so you can actually hear your music without destroying your eardrums.
They're a good gift too for anyone you know with a lawn or wood shop or something.
At my old house it was a 4-5 hour ordeal to mow and trim the property. I'd likely have went fully insane without those.

He's wrong, they have a 3,5 jack. Best piece of gear ever.

I got these 3M hearing protection/headphones for yard work and I feel like i am almost at peak suburban dad levels. Just need a riding mower and a beer

These are in my opinion the best thing that you are looking for. Pretty heavy duty compared to the more expensive smaller ones out there. Plus you can hook up music from your phone. Just don’t let your supervisors know about that. https://www.amazon.com/3M-WorkTunes-Protector-Bluetooth-Technology/dp/B0723CYHPZ/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=3m+worktunes+bluetooth&qid=1600287805&sprefix=3m+wor&sr=8-3

Maybe you could wear these when you need to focus?

Check these out - I bought them for work, but ended up taking them to a race last year when my group was short on RE headsets and ended up liking them better than my RE Gemini 5s... They're Bluetooth, but also have a standard 3.5mm jack that you could plug into your scanner. I've had mine 4 years, still working great. They're comfortable, noise isolation and sound quality are great. They're also awesome for mowing the grass.
Also are available at Lowe's and Home Depot.

May I also recommend the 3M Workman? I have a pair and LOVE them. And at about $50 they are a steal. They are specifically made for use on construction/industrial sites.

The batteries last forever - I probably had about 30+ hours on mine and it was still saying batteries medium when I recharged before a trip. They are also ranked #1 in the safety headphone category on Amazon.

This would be my suggestion. I worked in a data center for two years and wish I would have discovered these when I was there.

As an alternative, I wear the Worktunes Connect. https://www.amazon.com/3M-WorkTunes-Protector-Bluetooth-Technology/dp/B0723CYHPZ I don't know what makes these 10x more expensive, but I'd love to try them out!

Heres a suggestion. I work in a factory thats quite loud and wanted to listen to music too. I got some 3m worktunes and earmuffs for $40 and they work great. Dont know if thats what youre looking for tho https://www.amazon.com/3M-WorkTunes-Protector-Bluetooth-Technology/dp/B0723CYHPZ/ref=mp_s_a_1_2_sspa?keywords=3m+worktunes&qid=1581389684&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzSVM5S1BCRllBODZFJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNjAzNjk1Mk9SUDhSMDRGQk9RTCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMDAzMTQ0TDM4VEZBS0M1WklUJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfcGhvbmVfc2VhcmNoX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

My recommendations on this front are silicone rubber ear plugs (the kind with a stem that has multiple disc rings coming off of it), and also a pair of good ear muffs to go over top for the REALLY loud crying sessions. WorkTunes Connect from 3M are great, plus they'll be useful for work around the house--even vacuuming! Which, yes, does produce noise worth protecting against.

I've been using these while mowing, they work fantastic. Battery life and sound quality are both decent.

Obviously only works in certain living situations, but a rule that we used for a while was "If you're going to use your outside voices, you have to go outside." Then they have to go play in the backyard for a while.

I would very highly recommend 3M Worktunes Connect. They are very comfortable and quiet a lot of noise. And the price is significantly cheaper than many noise cancelling headphones.
The only downside is that they are big and bulky looking. But they are still comfortable enough for me to sleep in (which was very surprising to me since I’m a side sleeper with a lot of sensory issues). The battery lasts all night if you want to listen to music or other soothing sounds... but if you just want quiet, you can wear them without even turning the power on and they still get rid of a lot of noise.
Literally, someone can be right next to me and trying to talk to me and I will have absolutely no idea. My dad didn’t believe me and thought I was just ignoring him until I bought a pair for him and he tried it out for himself.
Also for me, they are great at preventing a meltdown when I’m experiencing sensory overload and can even calm me if the meltdown has already started. They have been a lifesaver for me (and that was even before lockdown and quarantine).
I have these ones (the more expensive ones with gel cushions.. I believe they are on sale for $80 right now) https://www.amazon.com/3M-WorkTunes-Protector-Bluetooth-Technology/dp/B07N6XXCWM/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=3m+worktunes+bluetooth&qid=1587169587&sprefix=3m+work&sr=8-6
And my dad has the less expensive version (which are also very good and are on sale for $50 right now): https://www.amazon.com/3M-WorkTunes-Protector-Bluetooth-Technology/dp/B0723CYHPZ/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=3m+worktunes+bluetooth&qid=1587170306&sprefix=3m+work&sr=8-4

I keep seeing reviews saying the 3M muffs just aren't loud enough to hear music/whatever over power tools. What's your experience with that?
I'm leaning towards just Bluetooth since I realized I have a radio app on my phone that works well and they cost less than ones with radios in them. I'm pretty sure it streams stations over the Internet. And thinking more on the subject, mot of the time I have Pandora playing on my laptop, which is plugged into my stereo.
Thinking of getting these:

There it is! That's why you have irritation and infections.
Wash your hands before touching your ear to remove them. Wash your hands again before putting in new ones, maybe even wash your ears.
Somethiggn like this: over ear protection This one even has Bluetooth 😏😏.
If you have to wear a safety helmet, there are helmets with ear protectors attached. safety helmet, ear defenders
I have no idea what's common right now. I knew some people who were woodworkers or gardeners and they always used this kind of ear protection, especially because of the amount of dust flying around and dirty heads.

I never found one that would work for yard work and the like, with Bluetooth and doing double duty. I recommend the 3m Bluetooth earmuffs (3M WorkTunes Connect Hearing Protector with Bluetooth Technology, 24 dB NRR, Ear protection for Mowing, Snowblowing, Construction, Work Shops https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0723CYHPZ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_FDwNFbKKARA42?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1) for yard work, and Walkers razors (Walker's Razor Slim Electronic Muff https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MR1JV4E/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_7FwNFbYAW37H1) with gel inserts (Walker's Game Ear Gel Filled Ear Pad, Multi https://www.amazon.com/dp/B085R4JZ3X/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_IHwNFbS7WCW58?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1)for shooting. If the walkers are too much, I personally like the reusable silicon earplugs.

I'm also a big fan of Adam Savage and my girlfriend got me a Savage Industries EDC ONE tool bag last Christmas and I freaking love it!
It also sounds like a compound miter saw and router are the next steps in your wife's woodworking journey. She can make more intricate cuts, and her work will look a lot more "finished." Plus she can freehand cut with the router similar to a jigsaw.
