Do you recall the edition it was made by Red??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.
You could just carry a laminated piece of paper saying you're a deaf mute... Just saying...But, now I have another problem. People always want to talk on the chair or whatever so I have to constantly reach in my jacket and turn the volume down. Finding a set of headphones with in-line volume control would help immensely.
