TJ Schneider has a unique style, both on the slopes and in the artistic realm, so you can expect his pro model of the Bern Macon EPS Audio Helmet to stand out. Featuring unique graphics and built-in audio, this helmet also sports a low-profile fit that eradicates any reason not to wear it when you hit the slopes to show off your own special style.
The Macon starts with Bern's Thin ABS hard shell and then adds EPS, a
lightweight, one-time-use foam that evenly distributes force and gives
its life to save yours in the event of a high-impact crash. Bern's
Signature Shape allows the Macon to be up to 35% lower profile than
standard snow helmets, and the ergonomic fit means it fits around your
head instead of perching on top of it. And, unlike other helmets,
you can take the liner out when it warms up for spring-ski comfort.
The liner of the Macon EPS 8Tracks Audio Helmet has the Bern 8tracks audio system built right in, so you can just plug your iPod, MP3 player, or phone directly into port at the back of the liner and listen to music through the speakers integrated in the earflaps.

This is the best bang for your buck for a helmet hands down.
It's ready to play music out of the box, and combined with Bern's signature "Sink Fit", the Macon 8 Tracks is a clear winner.
You can configure these helmets a few different ways- goggles on the inside/outside, liner on/off, and perhaps even a beanie underneath.
I find that the most comfortable way is to remove the liner, and wear it over your goggles and a beanie.
Unfortunately the 8 Tracks liner can press uncomfortably against my ears after wearing it for a while.
All in all, this helmet does the job excellently and if you like to cruise to your own tunes, the Macon is definitely suggested!
