These are the Chips®, Outdoor Tech's Bluetooth, universal, fully-wireless audio system for ski and snowboard helmets. Connect them to your bluetooth device, drop them into any helmet with an audio liner and your skull will be dripping with Kenny G's undeniable melodies before you can say uncle. Play and pause, raise and lower volume, answer calls and skip tracks from the Chips' two button interface, all without removing your mittens. Warm hands, total audio control, no wires, fresh powder, and whatever music you please.
Fully wireless, fully portable.
The Chips® stream music completely wirelessly from your Bluetooth audio device. Each Chips® earpiece features a large, single button that may be operated from outside your helmet knit with your mittens still on. It's simple. Your life is complicated enough, you had to watch a movie and take notes, we get it, it's tough.
Built-in call functionality.
Answer your next call without removing your helmet or your gloves. No more fishing in your snow pants for your phone, or pulling off your mittens and brain bucket to tell your Ma that you made it to the mountain all right. It's your dream come true, Hollywood.
Snow helmet compatibility
Compatible with newer models of these helmet brands with an audio ready liner, check with the helmet brand and see if the helmet or liner you are buying has slots for audio in the liner, if so, the CHIPS® will fit and work great.
