A helmet is never a bad idea. Even more so when it come to expierimenting in the park and stuff like that(ie: learning new tricks, bigger jumps, etc.)
There are a load of companies makeing good helmets, RED, Giro, Bern, Protec. They are plenty warm and some you can where a thin hat underneath. As far as using your MP3 player several companies have started to incorporate headphones into there helmets. My RED has headphones built in and they work great.
Trust me coming from someone who has knock themselves out while wearing a helmet its a good idea just to have one. You don't always need to wear it. But there are tiem and you'll know when where you should have it or wish that you did.
