I can vouch for their helmets!
I can vouch for K2 as well. I have a K2 Clutch Pro which has audio capabilities. The inside is super soft and super warm, but it still have vents. I love the thing!

Tarzanman They make mp3 players that are the same size and shape as flash drives. They break far easier than more robust mp3 players do, though... so it is probably better to have a system where you can hook up whatever kind of audio source you want (phone, mp3 player, radio, psp, tablet, cassette tape walkman, etc.)

HoboMaster How is music while your snowboarding gay? I snowboard WAY better with it on because it helps block out the half of my brain that's trying to make me worry about everything and it gives me motivation to ride harder. I ride much harder with music while mountain and road biking as well.

Hiking I don't listen to music since hiking is more of a nature thing.

Not really. A flat battery like a cellphone one is really light. A MP3 chip doesn't really differ much in sound quality, and the amp section is built into the chip these days. All you would need is a big on/off/forward/backwards button and a litte hatch for sd cards that is sealed against the water via a rubber gasket.

I mean, audio is gay anyhow, but hey everyone to their own. If you are "selcting playlists" you aren't riding hard enough.

ryannorthcott i'll be the first to vouch for giro. i've got the encore 2 helmet and it is the most comfortable helmet i've owned or tried on. i've tried giro shiv, smith maze, variant and a few RED and bern domes and the encore 2 the most comfy by far. my crowbars also fit great with it.
only one flaw is that smaller goggles (spy soldier/zed, anons and most smith) don't fit as well with the helmet.

mickyg Yeah, I meant the speakers inside the ear pieces. I have a Smith Maze audio and it is really good, the helmet is light and if the chin strap is nice and tight you can get surprisingly good bass through the speakers. Together with my Smith IO's its an unbeatable combination

so yeah, everyone uses an mp3 or ipod but some people just use regular ear buds and tuck them under the ear piece whereas others pay extra for audio-equipped helmets that have the speakers in the ear pieces

yeah I know there is not built in MP3 in them, but I was wondering who here just uses normal head phones under the helmet

I'm not a big fan of smith 2 goggles broken by them so I am staying away from them.

ptapia I just got the Smith Maze. I originally purchased the RED Trace II. The trace was just way to big and bulky. I tried the smith and it fit nice. took it up to the mountain the next day and just tucked my ear buds in, added my Anon goggles, everything fit and worked out great. It has vents, but I stayed warm and comfy the whole day. This was also a mask day!
