I have been wearing the Icon 1's for years while riding because the just seemed to work. The Icon 2's I found were not very good at staying on my head while riding like the Icons 1's did. These Icon 3's are a perfect headphone for riding. A little bit tighter clamping force keeps them on your head even better, but some people might not like the tightness, so keep that in mind. The head band its self is much stronger and more durable giving you more confidence that these won't break in half when you eat it. A stickier rubber underneath keeps well on beanies, but I have noticed a bit of slip on my baseball hat. The new Mic 1 in the head phone seems to work great. I can use it with gloves on from the outside of my hood, so I don't have to unwrap everything. I know that the first batch of these had problems with the button not working in colder weather, but they have since fixed that. Great sound quality as well. The best over the ear headphones to ride with.

I finally broke my Icon 2 headphones while snowboarding and I got really excited when I saw the Icon 3 with the TapTech! That would make my life slightly easier when taking a call and changing songs on my iPhone while riding. I tested it at my house and the speakers sound amazing for the size of the headphones! The earpads were also pretty comfortable, but I noticed the TapTech still needs a little work. It didn't always work when I tap to pause or start my music or when I hold the button down to activate Siri. The biggest flaw was when I tested out a call. The person on the other line can hear their own echo which is super annoying for them. It is probably because the microphone is right next to the speaker so they hear themself. My side sounded great though. I'll be returning these and going with the Icon 2 again.
- Great sound
- Button on the ear for super easy access
- Bigger ear pads
- Other caller hears their echo
- TapTech doesn't always respond
- No Skullcandy sticker included :(
This would be great if you mostly want it for music and don't plan to use it with your phone at all. If you are riding with an iPod Touch this would be great!
would i be able to wear these under my helmet snowboarding. it's a bern watts

No you would not. The ear pads are too thick and it would just not work. Your best bet is to just buy a Bern Watts Audio Liner.
