Headphones for on the slopes

Looking at some headphones to get for Christmas for snowboarding what do you all recommend? I usually just put them around my neck because I wear a helmet most of the time. I've used my Turtlebeach headphones last year and those worked pretty good, just the cord was crazy long

So yeah what have you people have and used before and what do you recommend?

My price range is under 60 dollars. I live in Canada so my selection is somewhat limited. I was looking at WESC headphones that I can get at HMV.

Kicker HP201 or Aerial7 Metro are both awesome choices @ $30. I don't recommend Skullcandy because their drivers just don't sound balanced or clear but they aren't bad, either. Nixon headphones are quite fragile.

UClear HBC-120 Helmet Communicator

Iím kind of a gear junkie, but the product Iím loving most lately is the UClear HBC120. Out of everything Iíve tried, I think they have the best combo of a sound system and Bluetooth headset out there. I know it's a bit out of your budget, but I thought I would share because it's a pretty stellar product. The device uses Bluetooth to connect to your phone and you can listen to music, talk on the phone and communicate to anyone else who has a UClear 120 using the intercom function. Itís pretty rad. I recently started working with a company who works with them and had a chance to try it out this weekend and it was pretty awesome. Check it out at Home | UCLEAR STORE. Iíd love to hear what you guys think!

The type of headphones you are using to listen to your 128 Kbit mp3's on your media players with who-knows-what-kind of audio dsp's is probably largely a moot point....especially those of you who wear earbuds

+1. I love the S4's but they tire my ear when I wear a helmet all day.

Mp3's can sound good. Headphones make or break that. I have shure earbuds that are studio and stage monitors.

I wouldn't recommend ear buds that block outside sound for riding. Get some smaller over-ear phones so you can hear what is going on as well as your tunes
