If you're looking for light & low-profile check out the RED Skycap II. I wear it and I like it's shape better than other REDs. Looks less like a space helmet and more like an old skool skate helmet.

I've got a K2 Clutch (with factory installed Baseline Audio Communication System (ACS)) that I love, I have had several people in the lift line asking where I got it so they could get one too.

it's got input (w/ cables) for audio (mp3 players and what not) and a portable radio (FRS type)

there is a microphone boom (small, unobtrusive) and a PTT button over the left ear and a mute button over the right ear for cutting out the mp3 audio.

but yea, i suggest you dont do what i do, go to a shop and try then all on.
I also wear a Smith Holt (with Skullcandy from the factory) and I have a big head. the RED cut into my forehead, the K2 felt funny on the top and the Giro XL was more like a medium

The big thing is find one that fits and is comfortable. A helmet that isn't will likely end up being used for loose change, and that doesn't protect you much. I've used mine twice now, and both times it would have been much worse. Kudos for thinking with (and of) your brain!
