Quiksilver and Plantronics have announced a new line of Bluetooth-enabled snow apparel and accessories, which offer wireless stereo audio for mobile phones and iPods. The collection includes the Quiksilver Double Daffy Snow Jacket ($370; shown) and Quiksilver Pulse Helmet ($250) for men, and the Roxy Teen Angel Snow Jacket ($340) and Roxy Shiver Helmet ($250) for women. A compatible iPod Bluetooth adapter will also be required.
 
“The new collection integrates Quiksilver’s high-quality outdoor sports apparel with Bluetooth equipped mobile phones, iPods and MP3 players, allowing users to effortlessly access their favorite tunes and mobile calls without the worry of snagging a cord while blazing the slopes. Plantronics’ technology, embedded within the Quiksilver apparel and accessories, enables stereo sound to stream wirelessly from compatible products so that users can play and control music as well as answer incoming calls—all at the touch of a button.”

funny. my jacket works really well with my ipod. i can put the ipod in the pocket on my arm - sort of on my wrist, and run the headphone cord up through the pit-vent and under the jacket. nobody can tell, and it’s like the cord isn’t even there. surprisingly, the clickwheel still works though the jacket and the case. i don’t really see the need for some of these fancy (and pricy) gadgets. i can wear my coat in class and my hitsory teacher so far hasn’t noticed. i listen to music for the entire class period with one earbud.
