These drop-in wireless headphones fit virtually any ski or snowboard helmet, and can even be controlled with your gloves on.
You’ve probably got more important things to focus on when you hit the powder than operating a fiddly music player that’s not made for life on the slopes. But thanks to these Chips Bluetooth-enabled wireless headphones, on-snow audio just got ridiculously easy.
The Chips headphones are designed to fit snugly in any helmet with a headphone liner, including top helmet brands like Bern, Anon, and Solomon. Once you drop them into the slots, they stay there for the entire ride, peeking out from between the helmet straps to give you quick access to their two button operation system.
Those two buttons are your lifeline to your Bluetooth music player, and because they’re nice and big, you don’t even need to take your gloves off to toggle the tunes. The left ear button is in charge of volume, while the right ear skips tracks, pause, plays, and answers calls from your phone, if that’s the device you’re link up with.
The headphones run on a rechargeable battery that will put in a solid 9-10 hour shift before needing a juice up by way of a USB charging cable. All the tech is sweat and water-resistant too, so you don’t have to hold back from your usual rough and tumble on the mountain.
You can nab a pair for £78.99 from Amazon.
