I'm on my second set of RedPhones, they lasted about 30 days before they died. Build quality is garbage, they are not a product that is made to last. Even though the quality is crap, I think they sound decent for what they are, they get the job done and I haven't seen a better option for Red helmets yet. I've thought about throwing in some of the skullcandy ones because I think they would fit, but I don't think the build quality is really any better from what I've seen. At this point I consider the RedPhones to be a necessary evil.

I'm not a big Burton fan, but they do seem to know how to make a quality product and I'm hoping they get their shit together and come out with a beefier version of these things in the future. Double the price and call them the AK Redphones if they want, as long as they build them to take a beating I'll shell out the cash for them.

I'm using my skullcandy ear pads from last season, and the home brew's from skull candy are the same exact things.... my buddy rides 2-3 days a week all season in breck and still on his pair from last year with no issue except for changing the inline cable

30 days to me mean 5 to 6 seasons (years). That's not too bad.

I swear it checked the day you posted it and it was $7.99

I have a smith variant and bought the bluetooth skullcandy earpads. Lasted about a week before the speaker on the inside of the earpad popped out and snapped the soldering in half. There went that $200! I bought the cheesy snap in earpads from smith with the skullcandy for like $30. The silly curly wire, clip attachment, and volume control on that thing is a joke. Randomly would increase or decrease volume if bumped. So, I just plugged a headphone cable directly into my ipod, set the volume at a reasonable level to hear what else was going on around me and was done with it! Irritating, but don't need to NOT hear some jackass barreling down the mtn and out of control.....

I've got the Giro helmet and Skullcandy Tune Ups combo. Has done pretty well so far, 20 days of riding and the only issue I've had is accidentally bumping the mute button once or twice. Sound quality is reasonable.
