The best solution 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. Made by boarders for boarders they are the only decent options I've seen on any mountain.

 

would you or anyone else be able to expand on the sound signature of these beanie headphones? I've heard "good sound quality" but obviously good is a relative word, good in comparison to what?

The Philips O'neill line of headphones were specifically designed for the use the OP intends. Their 'The Bend' model can be had for around $25 on Amazon. None of them are open headphones though.

Hey guys, 

 

Digging up an old thread because I'm wondering about this myself.

I could use my JVC IEMs but I feel they'd be too isolating, especially seeing I have to get back up to speed skill-wise and will need awareness. Maybe later on. Also wear a helmet so that rules out over-ear HPs.

 

Any suggestions for something like the on-ear /clip ones like the Koss? But better?

 

Or, I did come across these. Not cheap but sounds like a great idea, be good for biking etc too.

Heard about those Zedphones beanies too but can't seem to find them anywhere anymore, their site doesn't exist. Must have been a flop!
