iLounger Jesse has informed us about snowboard/ski helmets by Giro with built-in headphones and cable for use with iPod. “The Audio Series helmets feature TuneUps earpads, a premium-quality set of specially designed headphones that are built seamlessly into the earpads so you can dial in your favorite sounds anywhere on the hill without the hassels of earbuds or extra cords. Just plug in youyour player and go.” We Googled several online retailers and the Fuse helmet can be had for about $155, the Nine.9 helmet for about $135 and the Nine.9 MX helmet for about $125.
I'm a passionate, long-time lover of Apple products, and was a civil draftsman and graphic designer before creating the iLounge web site. My prior projects include work for The Los Angeles Times' LATimes.com, and the company Creative Domain, where I developed websites for clients including Columbia Pictures, Disney, Fox Studios, Universal Pictures and Warner Brothers. As the Publisher of iLounge, I direct the site's community forums, photo galleries, iPod User Group, and general business affairs, which have grown under my watch to over sixteen million page views every month. I'm happily married with one daughter, one dog (Rocket the Wonderdog), one cat (Ferris), many iPods, iPhones, iPads, and two turntables.
