Default Burton hi-fi

Iv been after a new helmet and someone in the "good helmet" thread posted this link

Trigger Bros. Surf Skate Snow - Online Shopping

Quote:
It is audio/subwoofer ear pad accessory compatable
Does that mean it COMES with the audio system or do I need to spend the $200 + the audio system?

Thanks Mitch

First off dont buy from that site, thats a ridiculous price, with some searching you can find it for 50-70 dollars.

The 09 doesnt come with the headset by default, just regular earpads. You can get Audex Headphones for 30 bucks or the fancy Skullcandy ones for a bit more...
One thing to note is there IS a version that comes with headphones, they designate this usually by calling it a Hi-Fi Sub designating that it has the Skullcandy sub earpiece.

IMPORTANT NOTE!!!
Make sure if you order new earpads that you verify they use the proper QuickClip tech, a lot of sites are selling RED Audex headsets for cheap but they are for the 2008 Models that use QuickClip 1, these will NOT work with the 2009 RED Helmets which use QuickClip 2 ...ask me how i know.

Personally i bought the helm from EvoGear for 59 shipped, then ordered the wrong 2008 Audex Headphones from SierraSnowboarding for 10 bucks, realized it and bought the correct 2009 ones off some other site whose name escapes me for 30 bucks. Granted these are not the powered subwoofer skullcandy earphones either, those are like 60+ and I dont listen to bass heavy music while riding anyways. Besides i wanted regular earpads to swap out, as they are more comfortable for those days i dont need tunes or forget my Mp3 player.

If you are listening to bass heavy music this site is probably your best deal, although there maybe cheaper atleast these guys have all the sizes and colors, if your medium it maybe hard to find a non audio one thats the most common size.. i dunno why they show it as glossy, its Matte black(the CMYK version is glossy i think with the graphic on the back). Considering the sub headphones are going to cost you a minimum of 60 dollars it really is a good deal..

Yes but that price on the other site is listed in USD too right?

The shop i listed will ship to AUS for ~50 bucks it looks like(i just put in Sydney)...your still saving over 100 USD since your getting helmet for 160 with audio compared to 270 it would be if you bought from that site + audio earpads...might take longer to get but whatever 100 bucks is a lot..

Have you tried it on in person yet? A bad fitting helmet is awful.

Emailed the guy and he said he had it wrong, the helmet should have been AU$169, and AU$199 WITH the audio

199 AUS for the audio helm is a pretty decent deal. Not great, but as you said you pay more there...

do you know the difference between the trace and the hi-fi? all i can see is that that the trace doesn't have the one button mute? is that all? or would the hi-fi have more "protection" then the trace? Like I don't fall that much but it would be better to have it then not in the odd case ya fuck up bad
