buckeyeguy Ok all, I 'm on the same hunt. Just picked up a Red Hi-Fi helmet (only one that would fit my big noggin) and wanted to outfit it with some audio. I have an iPhone 5 and was hoping to find something with similar controls to what Apple's EarPods (the ones included with the phone) offer. Basically, they have volume controls, a mic and the ability to pause or skip a track right from the control on the cord. I picked up the RedPhones that are compatible with the helmet, but am pretty disappointed that they only have a volume and mute control on the cord and are lacking the mic, pause and skip features. Anyone have any advice on another device? A wired device doesn't bother me but I am willing to go Bluetooth if necessary. The only thing I could find that looked compelling were these puppies, but God, they're more expensive than my helmet!

ShredLife if you are learning/don't know how to snowboard do not listen to music while you ride. you make yourself that much more dangerous and unaware of your surroundings.

hikeswithdogs Drop in speakers are FAR FAR better than headphones but the dam wires ALWAYS wear out after 1-2 seasons.....wish someone would come up with a better solution that was still reasonably priced.

OldDog Thanks!

I saw that too. However, I have had bad experiences with sportinglife and that is about twice what they should cost. I could have them sent from the states for that...

Meh, I may just do it anyway.

Thanks again for the reply.

Yeah, looks like the home brew has no inline controls at all. Doesn't really matter though as I've been unable to locate anything at all online from a Canadian site.

OldDog Meh, my so called "local" is 45 minutes away and pretty limited in what they carry. I also looked at sportchek.ca and they don't list it online anyway.

I'm looking for either the Smith Drop-In, Giro Tuneups, or Skullcandy Home Brew they are all essentially exactly the same thing, I think...

OldDog Thinking I'm going to go with these. I will probably skip the Bluetooth as they can be unplugged when you take off your helmet while leaving your "device" in your media pocket and your mini cable still threaded through that stupid little hole and all.

Redphones

Has anyone used these? Comments on sound quality?

Edit: OK so after some more searching I find that Redphones = shit. So, thinking I'll go with the Giro Tuneups even though Skullcandy also = shit cuz apparently Skullcandy shit is > Redphones shit?

Anybody happen to know of a website where I can buy Giro Tuneups in Canada? I can't seem to find anything and paying $20 shipping for a $30 item is retarded.
