The Holt comes with the Skullcandy Single Shot. If you buy the audio together it's cheaper for the "single shot." The cell/mp3 "double shot" speaker setup could be done to the Holt though if you buy it separately. If you get the Smith Hustle audio it already has the double shot setup.

After some use I now get static/cut out turning my head or hitting bumps etc. I have narrowed it down to the ear pad to cord connection. It was always loose there even brand new. It's very annoying now and I barely use the audio because of this. Also the sound is good but the volume control is super sensitive and bad with gloves on. After some use the mute button is being a lot more touchy too. It doesn't seem as loud now as when I got it but maybe that's just me. It definitely should be louder though!! The helmet is of course super solid and fit great etc it's just the audio that sucks. Afterall this is a review of the audio Holt. The Holt alone I would give 5 stars!!

I have a set of last years and reviewed them...I bought a new set this year and they do not disappoint again. The straps are super comfy, ratchets work great, endlessly adjustable etc... My only and I mean only gripe is the lean adjuster on the high back. If not touched it can get pretty hard to loosen and adjust sometimes needing "tool" assistance. The other day one of my Union Force base-plate washer snapped and I needed a spare. Guess what, ROME is nice enough to include an extra with the 390's and I used it. Thanks Rome. If you are considering the 390 it is a sweet binding. If you are considering it or the Union Force get the 390's!!!!

I have a hard time even giving them even 3 stars really. I don't understand why they are praised so much and maybe it's just me. I bought them only by recommendations of other people. The base-plate is nice, heel hoop sweet, ratchets and high-backs are awesome but there are a couple design flaws IMO. The toe straps suck and did not fit 3 different boots I own at all. They would slip no matter how much I cranked them. The plastic un-attached hoop of the toe cup doesn't really tighten to anything and should be smaller. Also the screws that retain the ladders and straps, if you run them loose enough to swing around they will eventually unscrew themselves from swinging your straps up and down. It happened to me after 3 days. I traded mine to a friend and sure wish they fit his toe's and he has better luck with them than me!! Oh and I won't write a review unless I have actually used a product in it's function. I read so many binding reviews talking about how they were on your carpet...blah! Take them to the hill or don't waste the time writing!!!

The sound is good. Helmet is super comfy and fits great! Removable vent plugs. Super nice. Much better then my audio HiFi from B. ;)

I am editing this ^ now after using it more and more. After some use I now get static/cut out turning my head or hitting bumps etc. I have narrowed it down to the ear pad to cord connection. Also the sound is good but the volume control is super sensitive and bad with gloves on. After some use the mute button is being a lot more touchy too. It doesn't seem as loud now as when I got it but maybe that's just me. It definitely should be louder though!! I tweaked it down to 3 stars...

I started this past season on this boot. It was uncomfortable, had pinch points, didn't hold my heel well, the inner laces are NOT in the liner but a cuff in the boot, crappy inner liner lace retainer, material wears super fast, not very think, crappy velcro retainer on to of liners. Overall they sucked. I bought a cheap pair of Northwave's and they were 100x's better. I rode these boots again today to try the Contraband bindings and remembered why I quit wearing them. Anyone want a great deal on a barely used pair of 11 mens DFC Deuce Boa Coilers? :)

Well, at the start of the season I bought these and they rocked for the first 8-10 days. After that they really started fogging bad. It was pretty annoying and I ended up hating my Anon's, I am kind of sick of Burton. This year I bought these goggles, a RED HiFi Helmet and RED Ninjaclava to wear together. Mind you these are all Burton items and together fit like CRAP! Sorry BC but my Anon's are coming back to you and going to try some Smith's next!
