1. An audio surveillance system being configured to mix ambient sounds with recorded sounds, said system comprising:
a pair of headphones, said pair of headphones being configured to be worn, said pair of headphones including a pair of muffs and a curved member extending between said pair of muffs;
an audio unit being coupled to said pair of headphones, said audio receiving a first signal and a second signal, said audio unit being configured to be electrically coupled to an signal source thereby facilitating said audio unit to receive said first signal from the signal source, said audio unit being configured to record ambient sounds with respect to said headphones thereby facilitating said audio unit to receive said second signal, said audio unit including a port and a processor; and
a control unit being selectively coupled to said headphones wherein said control unit is configured to be manipulated, said control unit being in electrical communication with said audio unit when said control unit is coupled to said headphones, said control unit adjusting a volume of said second signal with respect to said first signal wherein said control unit is configured to facilitate a user to monitor the ambient sounds while the user listens to music, said control unit comprising
a plug having an outer wall and a conductor, said conductor being selectively electrically coupled to said port, and
a ring being movably coupled to said outer wall wherein said ring is configured to be manipulated, said ring being electrically coupled to said conductor such that said ring is in communication with said processor when said conductor is electrically coupled to said port, said ring adjusting a strength of said second signal between a minimum amount and a maximum amount wherein said ring is configured to adjust a volume of the ambient sounds with respect to the music.
