Beats By Dre Headphones Are Going in Helmets Now

Illustration for article titled Beats By Dre Headphones Are Going in Helmets Now

POC and Beats By Dre are going to make your next ski trip better and safer with a new line of Receptor BUG Helmets that have headphones built in.


They're pretty standard as far as these kinds of helmets go—the headphones are built into the neckroll for a comfortable fit, and there's a mic and remote on the cord, so you can take calls, change songs, and adjust the volume. It comes in white or black and runs from XS-XXL for the perfect fit. And if you already have a POC helmet and don't want to pay the full $330 for a new head protector, you can just buy the neckroll for $180.

I have a helmet with built-in headphones, and it's one of my favorite pieces of gear to take to the mountains. The new Receptor BUG/Beats helmest will be available in January. Good timing, because it's so important to protect your brain when you're skiing or snowboarding, and tunes always make your ride more fun. [POC via GearPatrol]

Isn't it still unsafe to listen to music at all while on the slopes? I've always wanted to try but I've heard it's against ski resort rules- the reason being so you can hear people coming up behind you, etc
