HurtonBair I just got the Outdoor Tech chips. They run all day and I really dig how you can control them by pressing the earpieces. Also the ability to run a cord if the battery runs out is a nice touch.

They're not very loud if that's your thing but I prefer not to be completely isolated from my surroundings.

They're pricey, but if you can get a deal on them, jump on it.

Donutz KEL, it would be really terrible for you to contribute to the site by buying a premium membership, then get banned. Four posts in four different threads in short order, all pushing your product, is spam.

You want to push your product, open a thread on the subject and put on your asbestos underwear. Put a SMALL link in your sig. DON'T spam threads.

This is something to consider. Fortunately battery quality has come a long way, and we do use a top-tier battery supplier, and use a specialized low-temp battery. Making it user serviceable is something to look at from a mechanical design point of view.
2. The attachment to the helmet. can you make this a removable similar to go pro. as helmets break
and the adhesive is very strong so on a broken helmet, chances are the keypad will break in removing
Yes, there are numerous ways to remove it, and a Google search will offer up tons of suggestions. Best one I ever saw was using dental floss ! See How to remove a 3M Adhesive Pad Dash-Cam or Helmet-Cam Mount - YouTube In the event that our Remote does get damaged, we will sell replacements.
3. external keypad is also risky due to nature of the helmet if you fall in right spot. Boom, broken audio control, have to buy another one
We did a lot of studies on this placement. The rear placement give the best protection against impact. Our analysis was if you ever got hit right there, you will likely have a lot of other bigger problems (ie. head/neck injury). Ski safe !

KEL52 Hi Larry ... thx for the good questions

This is a big thing we wanted to address. It is charged with an industry-standard micro-USB port. No need to carry around little adapter widgets. The USB port is externally accessible on the right side of the 3 Button Remote. Nice and easy to get at, without having to tear through your audio liner.
2. how is that keypad attached to the helmet
It is attached using a high performance 3M tape ... same as what is used on GoPro adhesive mounts. Amazing stuff.
I found that with other systems, continually pressing your ears is just bothersome. With SHREDZ, when you press a button, a firm click sound resonates nicely through the helmet.

The other item we addressed is removing any double-click or double-button press operations. All smartphone operations are performed with single button click presses. Much easier to remember !
3. why only native IOS support
Our Bluetooth works with both Android and iOS. But may be you are referring to the SHREDZ battery gauge appearing on your smartphone. That is not yet available on Android, but may be coming with the newer Android software. We'll keep you posted.

We also have a cost-effective Wired model, which has true 3 button remote operation for both iOS and Android.

Argo I like to keep it simple. I don't like headphones dieing mid day, I don't like changing more than I already do.... I use skull candy drop ins inside the ear piece of the helmet. Super inexpensive and don't die. Put a control aux cable on it and your good.

Headphones are around $10
Aux maybe $10 also.

They last years before needing replacement. I just replaced mine this year, old ones had 2 years and 300 or so sweaty riding days on them and alot of travel.

Seriously though ... we are looking for feedback and input from the snowboard community ... help shape this product and bring it to market.



No other headphone system has all the goods as this one. Amazing price for early backers on Kickstarter.

Thx, Martin

A bit pricey for sure, but convenience and audio quality is top notch. No more fumbling around with your iPod in the cold to switch songs, pause, adjust volume etc.
3RD!

I had these in my bern Carbon watts last year. They fit in my new Anon Blitz for this year PERFECT.

Love them. sound quality is decent. But there's nothing like being wireless and being bale to control track,volume, pause/resume by pushing the ear pads.

Don't have fumble around trying to find the wire and controller on other models.
