i have one and your right abot the ear flaps being awkward. After a day my ears get pretty sore. I changed out some of the pads to make it looser in the ear areas which worked pretty good. Other than that tho i like it. The sound is pretty good

I bought the Giro Omen with the audio headphones. I really like the helmet! It's very comfortable and fits my brother's head as well. The audio quality is really good as well. The only complaint I have is the goggle clip is kinda flimsy and you'd expect something that is more secure but it works. Trust me, I've fallen and almost busted my head a ton of times and it has never fallen off though so I guess it works. I just dont feel secure about it.

Mine is brand new, I just got it a couple months ago. Does yours have the little latch kind of thing? If you were to just look at it and play with it and just mess around with it, you'd think that it's flimsy or something. But when you test it out it actually works .. I just have a feeling one of these days the goggles might come loose if I bite it hard .. But than again that's probably a duh .. so while the Omen is a perfect helmet for me in every way, I'm just a little "neh" on the goggle clip thing ..

i think the goggle clip is intentionally designed like that so in the case of a catastrophic crash the goggles come off your face rather then potentially digging into your forehead/cheeks
