Default Audio Compatible Helmets

I know listening to music can be 'bad' when riding... However, does anyone have an opinion on this and/or preference of helmet?

Ride with a helmet that is designed with headphones in the earpads, never use in ear buds while boarding...!!!

And if you HAVE to have the music on the hill, make sure you can still hear what is going on around you...!!! It is a common curtesy... In my mind at least...

I ride the lift with music, and then turn it off coming down the hill...

Yeah, I refuse to ear bud it, A) they always fall out and B) I still want to be able to hear what is going on around me.

Thanks for the input

Pick whatever helmet you like most (or use the one you have), and if it doesn't have built-in speakers do this:

I have a Ride Duster helmet with audio in the ears and it's great. It's compatible with my EG2 goggles too. Picked mine up last season for $100, I recommend it.

I. think most of the Smith helmets can be wired with the skullcandy helmet kit. I bought a K2 Rival Pro which has speakers in it for next season and it feels pretty comfortable with decent audio quality.

I got a Red helmet with the pouches in the earpads for 25 bucks on O2gearshop about two months ago and I just found the Skullcandy helmet headphones for 15 dollars at TJ Maxx of all places. I was originally thinking of buying some cheap overear headphones and modding them to fit in the helmet earpads but since I found the Skullcandys for cheap I decided not to.

The "Ride Duster Helmet" I'V got a black one and love it. Audio is super clear. It comes with a cheap cable thou, got a new one at Radio Shack for a couple bucks. It can take a beating too.
