    Posted: Jun/23/2010 at 6:06pm
I am looking to get some headphones / earphones for my next boarding experience. Does anyone here have an idea of what is the best? In-ear, the larger headphones? I have a great pair of B & O that I use for running, but they are a pain in the arse to take off with gloves on.

Any suggestions?

well, u should have either a helmet or a beanie on if youre boarding. your ears will get frozen if not. unless its spring conditions. anyways, itll be hard to take anything off with gloves. go with what you have.

i knew someone would say SkullCandys... aside from their warranty there are much better headphones/buds for the money, but like i said the warranty they have is great thus why i buy them.

If you are using a helmet you'll want smaller earphones.  I use the ear buds that came with my ipod, but they fall out alot so i wear a beanie to keep them in better.  I also like the skull candy ear buds.
 I bought a RED helmet with speakers in the ear flaps. I don't have to worry about them falling out.  But my brother also has one but the speakers broke really quickly.

I bought a pair of Smokin Bud Skull Candys (Got 'em on Amazon for like $20) then cut them so there was only one ear bud. They got a built in Volume control too so you dont have to remove the headphone and or MP3 player to control the sound. They fit nice too, come with 3 different sized buds so they dont fall out easily.

Skullcandy Chops always work well for me. I'm not into buying Skullcandy because it's "cool", I buy them because they do put out quality products. Chops never fall out with the strap around my ear and put out good quality for the price.

i use in ear headphones whether im wearing a helmet or not. I find then better because they are not as bulky. If you get a good pair that fit well, you wont have to touch them all day.

I always caught an edge when rode in my headphones! But I realized disadvantage of headphones which are pulled into the ear then. When you don't hear your surronding it is the way difficult to control own body.

never liked ear buds in general, and i find them distracting for snowboarding.  i like to be able to hear whats going on, especially the board against the snow depending on the situation. and big headphones are... big.  so....

we carry skull candy, which i dont care for, and its just basic panasonic stuff anyway.. but i tried out a pair of icons this past season because of their low profile design, and theyre really cheap too (referring to price, not quality).  to my surprise, i ended up really liking them.. they fit well and stayed on my head, weigh next to nothing, the sound quality is good enough for me for snowboarding, since im not paying attention to the music that much, and.. thats all i really care about.

we got icon 2s in our most recent shipment so i took a pair of those.. upgraded construction and the wires are wrapped in that woven material so theyre less fragile and better when its cold, not that i had any issues with the regular wires.

earbuds starting getting pretty annoying.. so i've resorted to using the speaker portion of my iphone! Its actually really useful and not as cumbersome as constantly having to deal with the strings and things of earphones... i guess if you were higher budget i'd suggest wireless headphones or burton has some fancy jacket with built in speakers...

Snowboarding is a matter of style. You could feel free to "dress up" whatever you wish, baggy, hip hop look which could never try in your office. So i would use eye-catching colorful skull candy. You can even find some googles will go with a set of skull candy in the same rock style, say Von Zipper...go and take a look and you would love it!

skullcandys.  they are cheap, decent and I wont cry if I burn and destroy them.  
 
good advice on cutting one of the buds out.  I will try that out this coming season.  I cant hear anyone when I board especially when I hit them accidentally.  OH WHAT!?!!?  lol

I love the icons for riding, fit perfectly over a beanie and stay on my head real well.  Like you said, not the greatest sound quality but its plenty good enough to ride to.  And theyre not expensive which is always a plus.

I wear a helmet, but I use basic SkullCandy earbuds - in one ear only so I can still hear traffic around me. Works great and very decent quality sound for such a low-priced earbud.

Skullcandy is 90% marketing, 10% audio.  It's like Bose for the under-20 set.

I like my RED audio pads, but if you're not riding with a helmet, then open over-the-ear headphones would be the best choice.  They won't totally isolate you (which is good) and might even afford a small amount of warmth.  Grado SR60s pretty much own for their price range, but if you check out the brains over at head-fi, they could give you some other decent recommendations.

Just don't wear them when it is nasty wet snow coming from the skys.
I rock the skullcrushers, there 50 bucks and if they break you can get another pair for 50% off.

Sony has some good quality in-ear for under 30$
great sound, controls for iPod/iPhone, cheap= good combo

Shure- Always high quality sound equipment, dont know about headphones

Sennheisser- Best over-ear headphones i've ever used. Bit pricey but if you care about quality its worth it
Board-Burton Blunt 155<br />Boots- Forum Recon<br />Bindings- Burton Mission<br />Helmet- Protec B2<br />Music-Cheap mp3 that doesnt mind getting bashed<br />

Buyers beware, Skullcandy products have a very very short life regardless of how well you care for them. It's rather unfortunate that they are pretty much dominating the market.

That's not even Skull Candy's problem. I have a few sets that I used only for casual everyday use and it's always been the same problem: Poor Wiring Connections.

again, i dont care for the brand, but my icons worked awesome this year.  rode with them every day from sun to stormy rain/sleet/slush, fell on them, etc, and they look and work brand new.  im not saying theyre amazing at all, but i had nothing go wrong.

for the price, i cant think of a headphone id rather have for snowboarding, but i am not familiar with every brand and product available so what do i know..

I'll agree with spenser on this one. The icons are a smooth decision. The price isn't too steep and they do the job. I don't really understand why people will bash skullcandy. In my oppinion, who is looking for PERFECT audio sound while snowboarding? I know I just use the headphones to listen to music in general and skullcandy puts out a good look for a decent price. Icons stay on great if you sneak them under your goggle strap btw.

Im with Spenser, i hate not hearing whats going on around me.  But i still need music so i buy helmets that have built in audio.  I can still  hear the sounds of the mountain because the speaker isnt jammed in my ear.

I wasn't speaking about $20 Icons so much as $69 Full-Metal Jackets. I've already gone through two pair even will the most cautious care, but thankfully I got them at a super discounted price and Skull Candy is more than happy to replace them.

I bought the Motorola Giro set up...the system was 330 retail and I got it for 100 bucks with the helmet.  Even then I wouldn't really recommend the set up unless you like the helmet because I was pretty disappointed with the sound quality and the reliability of the blue tooth.

I bought a pair of skullcandy's for around $25 maybe less and i used them from the beginning of last season and i wore them through the entire school year last year and this year so far and they still are hanging on strong. They are the longest pair of headphones i have had so far. I hope i didn't just jinx myself.

Forget earbuds for snowboarding: they're tangly, uncomfortable, and the wires get in the way. Helmet speakers are cool, but I hate helmets.

The best solution my sister and I have found are ZED-phones. Flat Bluetooth Speakers stitched into really good headbands and beanies. We got ours from 
www.ZED-phones.com but I think they're in stores too. They deliver globally for free anyway.

Sounds quality was good. They play a whole day straight without a charge. Standby for days and have a wireless distance of about 10 metres. Long story short, They are the tits.

They do make water resistant headphones but it's either hit or miss it seems but for 30 bucks for 8 gigs it isn't that bad to try out plus it's small.
Sessions sucks hairy monkey balls, the end.
