Correct me if i'm wrong but if i buy this helmet then it has every thing i need to hook my ipod up to it and listen to tunes? Or do i have to buy other certain cords or something? And does music come out of both ears?
It's all ready to go. And yes, it comes out of both earpieces.The audio set comes with one cord that has one end where you plug in to the helmet (left earpiece) and the other end has two connecters. One is your normal sized headphone plug, and the other is a slightly smaller one built to use with certain cell phones.

Does this helmet include the skullcandy hookup at purchase?
It comes with a cord where one end plugs into the left earpiece, then like 10 or so inches down is the volume/mute control device with a clip on it that you can use to attach to the top of your shirt or coat. Then at the other end of the cable are two jacks. One is the normal size jack for headphones/ipod/mp3, and the other is a slightly smaller jack for certain cell phones.
just wondering is the sizing chart correct?...
just wondering is the sizing chart correct? is the extra small larger than the small? xs>s?
I think the sizing chart is correct. I measured my head the way the chart says and ordered what size corresponded with it. If you're halfway inbetween 2 sized, I'd definately go up a size though.
Smith Holt w/ Skullcandy Audio
I originally bought the black Smith Holt helmet by itself, then purchased the skullcandy audio kit for the thing and WOW! I'm impressed with everything. First off, the helmet is light. You forget you're wearing it, except for the fact that I now have tunes blastin as I'm boardin. But I've taken a few spills with, and without the helmet. One spill without, and I got a mild concussion. Then I bought this, two more bad wrecks with it on, and I bounced back up thanking myself I made such a good purchase.
When it works it works great. It seems to loose connection, so it cuts in and out sometimes. Style and fit is great, the audio could use some help.
I bought the Smith holt w/skullcandy hookup, and finally got a chance to try it. It feels good to wear, and looks pretty good too. The only negative thing about this helmet is the audio. The sound is not at all what I had expected.
Other than that a great purchase, and I don't regret it!
i've always been told i need to do a better job of reading directions...this was the first time it proved to be a good thing. When I ordered this helmet I thought i was ordering the same one i'd tried on at a retail store near my house...they were the same brand and same price. When it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to find out i'd missed the part where it said it had skullcandy! The helmet is warm, comfortable, looks dope and has the great bonus of drowning out unwanted complaining about the NE snow conditions.
PROTECT YO SKULL!!!
i just got this helmet and its worth every penny. it comes with plugs for the vents so when it gets to hot u jus take them out and when its to cold jus put them back in.It also comes with padding to turn into a skating helmet. the built in headphones are a lil weak but that might jus be cuz i like my tunes pumpin loud. other then that this helmet is sick
smith does it again great protection and the skull candy audio is amazing. overall this is a fantastic helmet.
Head stayed perfectly comfortable on both the warm days and the fridged cold ones. Saved me from a few falls too which is what is supposed to do I guess. Only complaint is that the goggle strap holder doesn't hold your goggles in place if you do happen to fall. Oh, and if you get the gloss helmet, it's slippery so don't put your goggles on your head.
Great helmet, decent sound.
As a snowboard instructor, i love my Smith Holt Audio. It allows me to to hear my students, yet still keeps my ears warm. The only issue i have with it, is during free riding. Slight movements of the wire's cancel out the sound. And the mute button is way to sensitive. Any brushing on it, impedes how it plays.
However, over all, i would recommend this helmet. I dont regret purchasing it at all.
Sweet Brain Bucket
This Helmet is pretty sweet! so far the audio hasn't died like the other guy said. the connector could be a little easier to get at. but overall the helmet rocks. i like the ventilation options as well.
I have been a Smith fan for years and they have always been counted on for quality. Their Skull Candy audio attatchments are absolute junk. Cheap, illfitting, junk. Good helmet, not the best, but good. The audio earpieces are not the same as the ones Smith builds into the helmet and they frequently fall out. They are a hassle and not worth a dime. Wait untill next year, maybe Smith will get it together.
Good fit and versatile
I bought the Holt with the single-shot Skullcandy accessory. The liner is very nice and breathable. The chin strap is well padded and comfortable. I like the venting on the front that forces air into the top of your goggles. Overall the Holt is well-built. Not quite as lite as some others, but I like the style. The connecting cord is mediocre, thus the 4 rating. I had some trouble with the Skullcandy connection at the ear piece. Sound only came out of one side. I called and they sent a replacement with no further discussion. I'm very pleased with the service. You can pull out the liner and insert pads for skateboarding. Now that I have a skateboard helmet, perhaps I should pick up a board.
