Not too sure really, i have thought about it a lot in the past, i use a Carbon Helmet with MIPS, it is less likely to split on impact that is for sure, and the MIPS allows for the helmet to rotate while your head doesn't rotate as fast.
It does come at a cost though...
I would definitely say that cost does impact up to a point, but over a certain point it is about looks and style...
A cheap poly $50 helmet is never going to protect the same way a $300 carbon one does as an example...
I will never use a helmet without MIPS now, and i will never use a helmet that does not have Loccigrip (base of skull on the rear) either, they are both extremely important in my mind...
