Obviously, for the purposes that these headphones have been made, these aren't going to sound like top of the line Technics, though they definitely don't sound bad.(I give them a 6.5/10 on the audio scale)
They do, however look killer. I have the gold/brown pair and I think they are sick looking. Underneath the top there is a tacky rubber strip, and the ear pads are angled a bit to make sure that these will stick to your head no matter what you're hucking.


Though this board will not be ideal for carving, it will slay any rail you come across.
The rocker on this board is designed to allow easier buttering and presses on boxes, which is pretty much the opposite of carving lol =P
If you're a beginner looking to progress I would look at maybe the K2 Slayblade or the Believer, which both repping the "flatline" technology which gives the board ZERO camber, making it a mellow board for any situation be it carving to sending it at the park.

Each of those boards have their own advantages/disadvantages depending on your skill level.
If you're an experienced rider,
I would definitely have to say the Deuce is going to be the better choice. It doesn't have "Cruise Control" so you're not going to be sliding everywhere on the mountain, but rather maintain your edge and tear the mountain up. It also has a twin shape so you will be able to huck switch.

If you're a beginner,
The Blunt would be the better of the 3. The Cruise Control makes the snowboard concave, giving you a much more forgiving buttery feel to the board. It's also rated as a 3 out of 10 flex so it'll be stiff enough for high speed cruising.

I would say that yes, this board would be too soft for you. Burton rates this as a 2 out of 10 I believe, and for a person of your height and weight it would probably be a very soft ride. I would maybe suggest the Arbor Draft. It's a rockered board using "grip tech" to give you that edge bite you need in a reverse camber snowboard.
I would also suggest getting at the minimum a 160. The reverse camber will make the board ride shorter on hardpack but longer in pow.
