Replace it if its cracked or the foam has compressed in an area. Else, you are overdoing it. A fall on some ice aint gonna kill your helmet.

That said, I got a Bern and it does look hella stylish. It hard enough for me! And I have had 5 concussions I know what I'm gonna wear or not.

i think by audio helmet he meant one that has speakers built in the ear pieces...not one that has a built in mp3

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

I really don't think any helmets have a built in MP3 player, they have built in speakers however that you can plug the MP3 player into. If it had a built in MP3 player, the helmet would be exorbitantly expensive and the MP3 player would likely be a piece of crap that would be really hard to get music on.

I really like K2 Helmets.
Mine is very comfortable and light and safe.
The K2 Rant is a good helmet that has a decent price.
I ahve the K2 RIVAL which is slightly more comfortable and warm.

I can vouch for their helmets!

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!

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.

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

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.

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.
