Can i get JUST this liner for my bern watts, sink fit helmet and use it with the Outdoor Tech Bluetooth CHIPS?
Bern Watts ESP Audio Helmet w/ knit liner
This Helmet is awesome. The fit was tremendous, it is warm and the speaker sound quality is out of this world. Love it !!!!!
I was anti helmets for a long time cause of the fit, comfort and bulkiness (even though should be wearing one). With this one I have to say I am 110% stoked. Fits great, light, feels like it was made for my noggin. Also the audio is real good compared to others I have tried.
Got a warm weather liner?
I like the helmet, since it comes with a cold weather liner that has headphones. But I really dislike the policy of not sending along a warm weather liner with the helmet. You can't take out the knit liner and put on the helmet for warm weather--it simply doesn't fit. This is not the fault of backcountry.com, since I spoked with reps from Bern. No warm weather liner is sent with the original purchase.
If you want a warm weather liner, you'll need to purchase one through Bern for $6, after receiving a discount.

I would rather have $6 added to my original cost in order to receive the warm weather liner with the helmet. This additional purchasing process is a little frustrating.

Works great as a helmet, the audio cord that came with it is a little faulty, and the speakers in the liner put a lot of pressure on my ears and starts to hurt a little after riding for a few hours, but not horrible. The sink fit is awesome, low profile helmet, and looks great
look no further!
First off, I love this helmet. I got it in matte black and the audio is extremely clear and what makes it even better is there is a volume control so you don't have to reach into your pocket whenever someone starts to talk to you. I actually was very happy to have it on my first day out, I hit it so hard on a rail I thought I broke it..but no sign of anything, props. The low profile is nice and my EG2's fit perfectly but if I had to complain about something, which is not a big deal is the goggles wont stay on the helmet when there not on unless you put them on the brim which messes up the foam on the gogs
Berns Watts Audio Helmet
I just got this helmet and it worked great for the first 3 days and then the right ear speaker got a short in the input jack and wouldnt work any longer unless I squeezed on the input port. Had to return the helmet for a replacement. I didnt buy it through Backcountry but at Sports Authority who had it on sale for only $79.00 bucks!
This is the best helmet I've ever had. Love the knit liner.
Comfortable Lid With Clear Audio
Got the matte black helmet and would highly recommend. The lid is super comfortable and warm on days when it's cold. Audio quality is really clear and beats having to worry about earphones popping out while your riding. Had quite a few compliments about the look of the helmet too, so don't worry about looking bad on the slopes.
Had a few falls where a busted my noggin' and had zero issues and helmet absorbed impact superbly.
If you're on the fence about whether the audio liner is worth the money I would say go for it. If you're someone who likes to listen to your jams while your riding then it's a great purchase.
I like this helmet, but find the lid annoying when I want to put my googles on top of my helmet.

I just ordered this but I am concerned about the reviews of audio helmets.... Is there a best in market audio helmet that you can suggest?
no, there is not . i have owned my bern for two years and the only part of the audio that ever went bad ( usually the only part after asking around) is the cord between the helmet and the player / phone. went to radio shack got a 3.5 mm head phone to head phone cord and it rocks out 30 days a year. that's with me getting it caught on trees and forgetting to unplug as i dump it off in the bar. also you are hard pressed to find a better fitting or functioning lid.
