Helmet Help

First post here, I think, but i've been lurkin for a bit.

So recently I decided I wanted a new helmet. I'm looking for an audio helmet with built in speakers, and have found the k2, but was wondering what you all would suggest? and also, when shoppin for boarding stuff online, where do you usually go to?

I finally gave in and wear a helmet now due to having a son and seeing way too many people get smacked by the occasional out of control rider on my local hills. I went with the Pro-tec B2 with the plantronics audioforce. I like it because its not huge, very comfortable, the sound is great,and Pro-tec always did me good back in the day. Another bonus is I can mute the sound and adjust the volume without messing with my ipod in my jacket because it has some easy oversized buttons on the outside of the earpieces. I got mine for 109 at the local shop.
Online, I normally go to Dogfunk and I always seem to get my order pretty quick.

Get the Smith Maze Audio, it's only 330 gr, the lightest one on the market and it looks good

Thanks to both of you,
I've always worn a helmet, I always seem to hit my head and so I wont ride without one, but the helmet i have now has taken a beating so i figure why not replace it you know?

and i'm not to concerned with having the lightest helmet MSH, haha, but it is nice to have one that light, i'll look into both of em, thanks guys

Some helmets, like the Smith Variant are sold without headphones, but have zippers in the ear liners that let you add your own headphones.
