Default Headphones???

So, last season I used my Turtle beach gaming headphones around my neck for tune while going down the slopes. They worked well and stood up to the cold temperatures. They broke recently however and I was looking to replace them with a set of high quality ones. What do you guys recommend for pretty damn cold temperatures and for wearing over the ears or around the neck?

if you're not opposed to rocking a helmet, the Bern Watts helmet has good sound. The ear flaps have speakers incorporated into them, so your ears stay warm and you can still hear your tunes.

Yep, I use cheap in-ear buds because I wear a helmet. I used to use the built in speakers, but they crapped out a while back.

Just grabbed some JVC HAFX1X for the coming season. They're decent. Great bass, but the highs are a little harsh. Nothing some equalizing can't take care of, but IMO, they require some equalizing.

Amazon.com: JVC HAFX1X Headphone, Xtreme-Xplosivs: Electronics

I have these for home and travel use. Pretty much anything not active.

Amazon.com: Ultrasone HFI-580 S-Logic Surround Sound Professional Headphones: Electronics

So fucking sick.

At least half the price you're paying is to cover the marketing. LOTS of better stuff out there for a lot less outside of Skullcandy, Beats, etc. But, you're right, at least Skullcandy does have a great warranty.

I have a pair of skull candy cassettes and by far they are better than any of the other affordable ones. Snowboard friendly with good sound quality ! I've had the Skull Candy Lowriders and the Phillips Oneil Stretch as well. Cassette Has the best sound quality with good bass.

I used my kids old skull candy ear buds. Works for me.
It's more for when I'm riding alone. If I'm with someone I enjoy chatting so I turn them off

Yeah I was looking for more on-ear or over ear headphones because I'd like to use them for other things too besides snowboarding. I might just get bother buds and some solid on-ears to wear over a toque or around my neck. I just don't know which ones
