I added these to my G10 helmet and used them all last season. They worked well for me with no sound problems. And they still keep your ears warm. The only problem I had was fumbling around trying to connect the cord into the earpad while wearing the helmet (I like to leave the cord running through my jacket at all times so you just connect ipod and helmet and have tunes). You can't see what you're doing and the connector can get moved around inside the earpad so you have to get just the right angle. Otherwise great.

i have the giro 540 helmet and from what i've heard, these are not compatible. does anyone know if there are tune ups for this helmet? or do these actually fit?
these do not fit
Does the Giro Tuneups work with cell phone...
Does the Giro Tuneups work with cell phone as well?
Only if it has a standard 3.5 mm jack, and you are using it for music. You need one of the other kits if you want something to have music and a phone plug.
I know that everyone here is saying that...
I know that everyone here is saying that these work with the G10, fuse, G9, etc. but do they work with the old nine.9? I know that its basically the same helmet as the G9 just an older model, but I want to buy something and deal with sending it back and everything

Write your question here.. Will the tuneups work with the Giro S-4 ?.
No. Only works with Fuse, Omen, Prima, Shiv, G10, G9 and Ember helmets.
Hey will this work with the G9 helmet?...
Hey will this work with the G9 helmet? Also can the tuneup make the helmet audio from non audio?
That's the entire purpose of the product.

where can I find the cord that goes from my ipod to the tuneups in my helmet? The cord that has the inline volume/mute button... used the helmet 3 times and where the wire goes into the plug at the helmet end, it's already becoming frayed so my speakers short out.
E-mail Giro. The same thing happened to mine and they mailed me a new cord for free.
I love the tune ups. Ear pads snap in easily, and the sound is fine. I have not experienced any of the sound problems that others have in other reviews. I will say this you need to push in the connection to the ear pad hard. It snaps in to stay tight. If you dont push it in you will only get one channel of sound.
Now let's be realistic, every one of us had snapped headphones on the slopes. No headphones can stand up to a hard slam. For 20 bucks, this is a cheap way to rock tunes in your helmet.
Fit in helmut fine but both channels do not work
The fit is fine in the helmut (recommended). However, both channels do not work at the same time. Tried in different iPod devices with the same result. If the mini-jack is rotated then it will switch to the other channel/side but both did not work at the same time. Have returned for exchange.
I agree with the previous review. I bought a couple as gifts and one for myself. It's great for the one helmet it happens to fit, the others are jerry-rigged and a little funky. Sound is good, but clip broke the first morning and one channel goes in and out, probably a sloppy fit for the jack. Good for the price, but more hassle than it is worth.
I was a little hesitant to purchase these since my helmet model (Encore) was not listed in the product info but was reassured when I read the comments that these worked on all Giro helmets. The earflaps do not fit well in my helmet ant here is no way to secure them to the helmet or the strap at all. The sound is good and it is nice to not have head phone under my helmet. Also, the clip that holds the volume control to your jacket broke the first day I skied with it and now it just hangs there. I'll probably keep them and just sew them to my helmet straps so I don't have to worry about losing them but I'm not as thrilled as I had hoped I'd be. When I need a new helmet, I'll remember to splurge for one that already has the headphones in it.
where can I find some behind the neck...
where can I find some behind the neck headphones with 2 hard wired plugs for cell fone and ipod? Searcing for this simple device for daily working out and such. please let me know email@example.com
Very much confusion on the interweb about...
Very much confusion on the interweb about these. Some say they are generic, some say Fuse pre 2007 and suggest that they are size specific. Does anyone really know this product? I have a Large pre-2007 FUSE and want these in the basic version. HELP

Can't get it to work with my Blackberry 8830. Ipod works fine but can't hear the phone ringing through the headsets. Am I missing a setting on the BB?
No, you just have the wrong part. This piece is not intended to be a hands-free phone earpiece, just music.
Just a great product for Giro helmets. The thought of smashing an ear bud into my skull due to a solid wreck always bugged me. The ear pads are just as warm as the original and the in-line mute/volume is really nice.
Do these have snaps on the earpads to...
Do these have snaps on the earpads to attach to the chinstrap?
No snaps, but loops to put the chinstrap through - just like the stock pads on an 08/09 G10.

my skullcandy tuneups don't match the bottoms on my helmet gyro 540 so i can used but it suppose to click on the ears bottom or not??
That really isn't an English sentence. What are you asking?
Do these work with Giro's locking system...
Do these work with Giro's locking system or their tab system? I have an Encore 2 and it has the tabs and I want to be positive it works.Thanks
I think it has the little snap togeather things.
Will the Tune-ups fit my Encore helmet?...
Will the Tune-ups fit my Encore helmet? The original earpads have tab inserts.
Only works with Fuse, Omen, Prima, Shiv, G10, G9 and Ember helmets.
