I bought Red helmets for both my girl and myself and put the Redphones in them. Way better than earbuds with the volume control on the cord and since you don't have buds in you can listen to music but still hear other people really well. Doesn't help the non-helmet guys but I love it. I find the music just helps me relax and then I can ride better too.

I don't cause its a distraction. But it also depends on the conditions...riding in the deep poo safety...in trees or leap frog....ya want to be able to hear. And on gaper groomer days I like to hear folks coming up along side.

I have music playing all the time when i'm out - they are inbuilt to the ear pads on my helmet (skullcandy - go figure).
It's kept at a moderate level where I can still hear people and enjoy the music at the same time.

To be honest with you, when i'm actually riding I get so focused on doing that, that I barely hear any of the music then.

It's all fun and games until I see a jump and I believe I can fly comes on........

A side from this being my next toy I've been trying to find the song they play in the video. The closest I've come is a remake I heard on sat. radio. I Shazammed it and it came up as Sail by awol nation.

on occasion I do but most of the time I don't because I like to hear the sound of my snowboard against the snow.

When I'm out free riding, surfing pow, hitting natural features...that kind of stuff I always always have music, if not part of the riding experience for me is ruined. If I'm riding park however I almost never have music on, because the slightest slip in concentration (say from my mind focusing on the song vs the next movement on the rail) and I fuck up the trick or rail and get hurt or really pissed and have to do it again.

When I do ride with music it's with ear buds and I usually have only one in, unless it's a really kick ass song in a big area full of a foot of pow. Then I put both in and completely drop out from reality.
