    Helmet audio

    I have the smith vantage, and im looking for some tunes. All the skull candy models have horrible reviews, but I cant find much else. What are you using?

    I go the Outdoor Tech Chips about 2 weeks ago. Bluetooth with the controls built into the earpieces. Press your right ear flap once to play and pause, press the left one once to reduce volume or twice to increase volume. The only issue so far is that they are a little thick. I'm going to add a little more cushion to the helmet to resolve.

    The skull candy drop ins are legit. I've been riding em since early '12 season. They sound good and haven't flaked out. Only compliant is the track skipper/volume control broke about 10 trips ago. I'd say the drops have lasted 40+ trips so far and going strong. I've got them on my smith maze helmet.

    +1 for Skull Candy drop-ins.

    Look, we're not talking high quality or great build quality, but mine are still working after 5+ years of abuse and I think I paid ~$30, so I can't complain.

    +1 for the CHIPS. Agree they are a bit thicker than most. The basic controls work well. I get some occasional drop-outs but they are rare.

    Which ones? I prefere the Smith Single Shot over the giro version. The giro can only mute your music. The smith you can pause your music but also answer phone calls. Normally I am jot crazy about having my phone calls while skiing, but i can often ski while working and need to be easily reachable.

    Single shot. Came in after I left to go north today. Hopefully they hold up. They seem to have good customer service, from what ive read on the bad reviews.
