Any other helmets I should look at as far as audio? Biggest thing I like is the mute button on the ear piece. I don't want to have to mess with controls and whatnot.

I didnt wear a helmet until this year so I dont have much experience with other helmets but I would recommend against just the regular RED headphones you can buy seperate and put in any compatible helmet. Compared to the audio that comes in the the Frends editions it sounds like shit, or even compared to a decent pair of any headphones it sounds like shit. No bass and scratchy. Before I rocked the helmet I used a pair of the skullcandy headphones that are built for beanies/helmets that wrap around your ear. These were really good but no mute button.

Cool thanks man. I'm thinking I might just pick up a Pro-tec helmet and invest in some nicer speakers to put in them.

Just make sure the helmet is certified. Either ASTM F2040 (U.S.) or CE EN1077 (E.U.). If it's not certified refuse to buy the helmet. It's protection is questionable.

Try the helmet with your goggles for proper fit too. If the helmet doesn't fit it won't protect your head well or be uncomfortable. If your goggles don't fit you'll get moisture in your goggles and possibly steam up.
