Best Helmet w/audio

I want to find the best audio snowboarding helmet. I want the loudest helmet out there, as far as helmet rating i really dont care as long as it meets whatever industry standards are. Would also like something that has great durability, warranty, and of course is cool looking. Also not concerned with mic, or bluetooth. If it has that capability great, but my main concern is loudest sound with good comfort.

I have a Smith Variant Audi helmet from last season and I love it. It's warm, and it's plenty loud enough for me. That being said, it's also the first and only helmet I have ever owned.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

all that and then some

This is a Salomon Ranger Custom Air, w/blue tooth skullcandy. I know you don't care about your head or blue tooth and mics, but hear me out. The speakers are loud and you don't need the wires, although you can use them. The helmet also has a Doc Meter Air system for your brain. There are volume, song and source control right on the side of the helmet so no need to take off gloves and get into your pocket.
My buddy painted it to make it look cool (i am going to have him change it to match my new $#!6.

Now all that being said the best way to get the loudest system is to make your own out of a bad ass set of headphones and a helmet with ear flaps or even the add on packages you can by to mount speakers. you need to carefully dismantle the head set and mount it in the ear flaps. If you cut them into a helmets flaps then remove some stuffing and place your speakers and then sew it up.

Before I got this helmet that is exactly what I used and it worked great...until I knocked myself out cold!
