Well, in my experience if you are going to wear a helmet and you want music you have to get the "audio" feature because snowboard/ski helmets have the ear pad things and when you try to wear earbuds with those it pushes them in your ear and is uncomfortable and is in so deep into your ear that it's all quiet. That is unless you take out the ear pad feature on your helmet, which is very easy and not a problem at all; as long as you are wearing something to cover your ears like a beanie or what I use, an Airhole, either way it's no problem but just a recommendation that you get the "Audio" feature on your helmet if you have the option just to avoid the pain.
Hope this helps!
