I know you can. I don't use the blck foam ones. I use the rubber ones. Never the less the earbuds themselves are pretty good IMO.

I'm actually thinking about taking some tunes with me on my next trip and was debating between a helmet compatible insert for my Giro G10 or just using my shure earbuds.

I'm a little concerned about blocking out noise from a safety perspective. Can anyone comment on how bad of an idea this is? Is it that big of a deal?

Edit: The comparison is between a Shure SE210 and the Giro Tune-Ups. I already own the Shure and I can get the Tune-Ups for about $10 on clearance at my local REI.

I bought a pair of SkullCandy G.I.'s and used them once.. they didnt sound that great and the ear cups fit my ears like crap! I took them back and bought some sennheiser HD205's... the ear cups are functional, they sound 10 times better, and the ear cup will swivel out of the way for talking to someone on the lift

tune-ups arent even comparable to the shure's..period....

I also have a pair of e3c's. Remarkable, just a PITA to get in and out while on the slopes.

I just found: Best Skiing Headphones of 2011

I was looking at the Klipsch S5, anyone used these? They look pretty sweet.

^^^^You do relaise that this thread you have resurrected from the grave is three years old, right? It's officially a ZOMBIE THREAD.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I didn't realize it until you just pointed it out. I actually found it by just typing in "Snowboarding Headphones" in Google. I just found a couple newer threads on topic, I'll try there

I picked up some old skullcandy icons back when i worked at staples for like $16. I busted off the head strap park so its just 2 round speakers, and slipped them into the headphones pockets on my giro revolver.. Never been happier!

Koss ksc75's are probably the best headphones you can mod into your ear pads or just wear normally. 100x better then the skullcandies and they are only $9-$15 usually

Smile Wireless Beanie and Headband headphones

Earbuds, helmet speakers, over-ear headphones are great, but no where near as comfortable or unrestrictive as headband or beanie bluetooth headphones. I've never been able to board well with wires running down my face.

The best solution my sister and I have found are ZED-phones. Flat Bluetooth Speakers stitched into really good headbands and beanies. We got ours from
ZEDphones - Bluetooth Headphones but I think they're in stores too. They deliver globally for free anyway.

Sounds quality was good. They play a whole day straight without a charge. Standby for days and have a wireless distance of about 10 metres. Long story short, They are the tits.
