tokyo_dom Look for zippers in the ear pockets. I think most helmets these days are audio ready, but not all. The ear-pieces of these headphones pop off from the ear clips and then they become a disk about 4-4.5cm in diameter and a bit over 1cm thick (with the foam ear padding removed - dont need that when you put them in your helmet).

If you have a zip in your earpad area, open it, and there should be a precut shape of a circle inside there for you to remove, and then place the headphone earpieces into

Or do what i did in my Sandbox earpads - undo a few stitches at the top to open it up, and then stuff these into there - not designed for earphones, but it works

KansasNoob Does your helmet have "pockets" for speakers? If it does they should work.

neni Any of you saying you put them into the ear pads has by chance a Giro helmet? Never used hemlet compatible headphones so far, and when I researched for Giro headphones I just found "TuneUps" which had terrible reviews regarding the sound quality (rather no music than bad quality one), thus I'm intrigued... anything I'd need to check to know if they'd be compatible as well to my helmet (Giro Lure) or are all ear pads headphone ready thingies designed the same way? (Headphone noob alert...)

Mo Mo I just got these in the mail the other day after reading this thread. And wow... Best bang for your buck for sure! sure wearing them day to day would be annoying and less stylish I guess but for your helmet. Perfect! I even did one of the mods you can for them and drilled some extra holes in the plastic and it just opens up the sounds a bit more.

Edvard_Grieg I used these for several seasons in my Smith helmet, but last season I switched to the Outdoor Technology Chips CHIPS - Universal Bluetooth Wireless Snow Helmet Audio - Outdoor Tech® and could not be happier. Sound substantially better than any skull candy nonsense and close to on par with Koss plus now I can answer calls (mic works great) and control volume, track etc just by tapping the earpads with my mitt.

KansasNoob Just got 2 pairs of the Koss KSC75 from Amazon. They are definitely the best value ever. They aren't as good as my Sennheisers, but I can put them in my helmet and shit they're $10. Buy em.

Tatanka Head Well, Dre did get the upper-hand on an overeager company(Monster). I found this to be an interesting read:

snowklinger I heard last night that Dre has made more money on Beats than his music career. Who the fuck is buying these things?!

Holy Shit!

Elektropow Funny thing is, good headphones are not rocket science. But since they've become a penis extension to the general public, some manufacturers dare ask for ridiculous prices for sub par quality headphones, ie. Beats and Skullcandies. With these you get both objectively and subjectively (disregarding aesthetics) better sound quality at 10usd vs a 400usd beats.
