Recommendation for helmet speakers

Last season I bought the K2 Rival Pro Audio Helmet. The helmet itself is low profile and lightweight, I like it, but the sound of the speakers is absolute shit.

In a quiet room it might serve as background music, you can barely hear them on the lift, and you're not hearing shit while riding.

So I'm looking for speakers to replace the ones that came with the helmet. I listen to music that has good bass, so I'd like the speakers to not suck when it comes to bass- but I'm most likely not willing to pay for top-of-the-line either.

Thanks for any tips.

I have the same helmet. Let me tell you this- buy an official 'beats by dre' aux cord to replace the shit one that helmet comes with. This replacement has held me off for all last season because it really made sound quality better and louder.

Like you I'm still in search for a better pair of headphones, but none look promising. We've been on this subject for a while now on this thread - http://www.snowboardingforum.com/out...es-helmet.html

Let me know if you try any out

I just double checked each cord and the quality is noticeable better with the beats cord (the highs are more clean), but it actually is not really louder. The other bonus was the beats cord never cut out like the stock one the helmet came with. Also, in the small chance you do try this aux cord, let me know because I accidentally bought the fake one and it's also shit (they all look too similar).
Anyway...definitely let me know what you end up doing cause I'm picky about the sound quality as well.

EDIT: Here's the thread for audio comparison -- http://www.snowboardingforum.com/gen...-ksc75-vs.html

I definitely need louder because it's barely audible on the lift as it is, and I don't hear anything while riding.

Quite a few of the reviews for those 'outdoor technology chip' headphones say those don't go that loud either. Hmm...I really don't know what I'm gonna pull the trigger on either
