SpeedDemon Just picked up a FiiO headphone amp from Amazon and I must say it was the best 50 bux I ever spent. I also got the optional ipod line-out adapter.

Not only did it make the crappy Giro Tuneups in my Seam helmet louder, but the sound is a lot fuller/richer.

I got something similar. Works well but this brand seems so much better then what I got.

By chance do you now if they got something that splits to a radio and a mp3 player?

onthefence I just used the Apple Earpods, the ones packaged with the newest generation iPhones and iPods. They fit under my earpads comfortably. The main thing I like about them is that unlike the original ipod earbuds, the Earpods are built to be semi-isolating, so I could hear important sounds around me (a rider speed checking or falling) but still have enough subtle isolation to let my music not get drowned out. Also, its extremely convenient to have the inline controls so I can skip tracks and adjust volume without taking out my MP3 player.

smokebelch109 Must admit that Iasus stuff looks good, if the K2 Audio doesnt hold up i'll definitely be looking in to them.
just tried having people shout at me while wearing the helmet listening to music, i could still hear them but the audio was still great on the K2's...looking good so far!

DanX I have the Smith Maze/Skull Candy setup. I love it. I just made sure yesterday that last year's season didn't kill them. They still sound great. My only complaint is how easy it is to push the button on the cord. At least its large enough to just mash with my gloves on when I need to toggle the audio on/off or change songs.

2hipp4u I got the amp as well, its loud as hell. I don't use it much cause I dont need the tunes that loud and its one more piece of gear in my jacket that I don't really want.

Gdog42 I just put a pair of regular Phillips earphones into the audio pads of my Giro Revolver helmet.(Not the in-ear buds, the ones that just "sit" in the ear) It sounds fine, but I have to wear it so the cable is behind my head because the two end cords aren't long enough to go over my face. And they don't have a mute button on the cable but I plan on getting a pair that does.

Skinny Bam I bought the RED Hifi and ordered the RED headphones to drop in. Love the helmet but the headphones are garbage.

Then my buddy got a RED Frends edition that had the audio built in, I tried it on and it was 10x better than mine. So if you get one of the RED Frends version they are legit. You could also try to find just the Frends audio part separately but I had no luck in doing that.
