The key lies not in your helmet, grasshopper, rather in your jacket. I have a Sessions Mobstripe jacket...it has little pockets in the left and right collar for a pair of Skullcandy speakers wired to an easily accessible front pocket. They have a 4 watt amp to boost the sound, and an external on/off switch that clips to the jacket. No ear pain, no worry about the outside sound being blocked out. Sound is pretty decent; the little amp helps a lot. Never have to worry about losing them, since they're fitted right into the jacket.

They sound pretty good with the amp. It's just enough to boost the sound...without it, there isn't much bass, and you have to max out the volume on your iPod. The whole setup is about $39.

Ive seen and heard of those jackets and they seem pretty awesome but im just improvising with what i have. Ive had the headphones for a while and theyre low profile enough to fit under my helmet and are good enough to use on the slopes. I just dont have the funds now to buy a new jacket

What about just putting regular overhead band headphones on the helmet and pretty much using them as external speakers? I do that, but with beanie hats and it works great.

Idl how good they are but ive seen some good reviews om them but frendsvision(wearefrends) sells earbuds for 30 bucks and 40 bucks, they have the no tangle cord and a clicker type remote to answer phone calls change songs turn volume up and down, all with two switches, and they are designed by snowboarders(the frends crew). I myself have the skull candy speakers with amplifier mentioned above, comes in the ccs brand jacket for free, works flawlesly.

i buy skullcandy speakers that go into your ear pads and a cord hangs down which you plug into your ipod. very comfortable and easy to do.

$40.

Skull candys may not have the best sound quality, but if you break your pair then hit up SC customer service, theyll replace em for free most times. :-)
You should check out these mobile speakers called boombots from boombotix.com. I just bought one to use while riding and its water/snow resistant and has AMAZING sound qaulity. you don't need any chords cause it connects to my ipod wirelessly. much cheaper than skull candy. i bought mine for $60!!!
