I'm a Skullcandy junky and use it for all my athletic pursuits. Cycling, running, skiing etc. I don't ski without a helmet so it only makes sense to have my tunes on board. The large mute / pause button makes it easy to pause music so you can actually have a conversation with your lift partner and not be a social retard. There are audiophile snobs out there who say that Skullcandy is only about the bass. It's true ... I've never heard better bass from any other brand but the frequency response across the spectrum is very good. This kit will adapt almost anything!! Highly recommended!!
Does this fit all helmets or just smith?

Skullcandy make kits to fit just about everything. I've put them in Giro and Smith.
skull candy bluetooth to ski helmet
Purcahsed and placed on a brand new Smith Variant helmet size medium. The sound is O.K. attached to droid. The fit is poor at best. The straps on the helmet interfere with the earpieces. Secondary, the weight of the earpieces cause them to pull from the plastic helmet. At that point the straps hold it all onto the helmet. Old helmets used to have snaps, might be time to consider retro. The controls are a little hard to operate without practice, but in fairness I wear mittens. I can adequately operate them with practice, but a bit more relief seems like it would help a bit. Overall I'm satisfied, but I'm not sure I am for the currency I took from my wallet. My old helmet just had plug-n-play headphones with a microphone to the phone and I think for the money it worked almost better.
Serves my purpose very nicely. My Android works well with both the Smith verson or the Giro. I use two helmets with this setup and I never miss a call with either. My office hits me on a black groomer, and I have to slow a bit, just because the wind noise from the phone's microphone.
I know these are for the smith helmet...
I know these are for the smith helmet but... they lok real similar to the Pro-Tec Classic Snow set up. Has anyone ever tried to see if these will mount up to a Classic Snow? The head phones for the classic snow are less than desirable.
I don't know about the Classic Snow, but my buddy's got them on his Red Militia and they work/sound great.
Can one plug this in as well, or is it...
Can one plug this in as well, or is it just bluetooth? I have an iPhone and have heard there's issues with it playing in stereo. Is this still true?
I saw it in my local ski shop and it has a mini plug connector for hard wire use - but still requires being charged.
So I got a helmet with this set already...
So I got a helmet with this set already built in. I really enjoy it, wireless music is awesome. But I bent (and hence broke) the white iPod connector for it, and now have to use the black (larger) connector via the audio jack of my iPod to connect my helmet and iPod. With the new connection system, I can't pause the music or skip tracks by the buttons on my helmet. I tried contacting Skullcandy via e-mail to get a new white iPod connector thing, but apparently their support is really poor. Any ideas on how to get a new white connector thing?
How does it pick up your voice when you...
How does it pick up your voice when you take a call. How do you place calls hands free?
The 9 piece bluetooth adapter does not pair with the helmet, and there is no button like the manual says. also there is no mp3 adapter and I need one.
It would be nice if the picture matched the contents of package, and if all the pieces worked
I had high expectations for the bluetooth audio kit from skullcandy. I thought the fit was sloppy and the audio was average. The construction seems like one big fall away from breaking. Great concept, but needs work.
Just to make sure, this does have track...
Just to make sure, this does have track control, right? I'm getting tired of punching myself in the chest to go to the next song, as an alternative to unzipping my jacket and taking off my gloves.
I have the ones from a couple years ago, and when connected with my phone i can answer calls, have it read texts to me, control the volume and track, and pause/play
Just what is included in this kit for...
Just what is included in this kit for $200?
$200! Crikey Moses!
The earphones, 3.5mm jack lead, little black box adapter I suppose connects to the proprietary iPod connector. But the picture shows what looks like a universal AC adapter, with USB cable and AC outlet adapters for USA, UK, Europe and Australia... Included?
I imagine that the two iPods are not included, though at this price you could throw in the Shuffle for free.
Dogfunk, when are you going to get more...
Dogfunk, when are you going to get more of these?! One for my large maze helmet would be awesome!
No worries meng, looks like we've got a batch of 'em headed our way by the end of July/early August. They'll be here before there's snow in your neighborhood, so keep checking back!
