Great option for ski helmet audio...
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
I have had all the previous version of the Chips to date, and believe this is the best iteration yet. However, as mentioned before, they do come with their own "quirks". If you pause your music when getting on the chairlift, and do not start it again, these will shut off before you reach the top. Not a deal killer by any means, but it would force you to turn each one back on individually and allow them to re-pair. It also takes some adjustment having to turn each one one and off - but that goes away after first use. I do like that it is easier to activate voice assistant with this version. Through a bit of experimentation, I uncovered that the sound is best when you actually leave the foam inside your helmet ear pads. Several manufacturers provide a "donut" shaped cut-out that can be removed. This does allow for the Chips to fit in nicely, but causes the sound to seem very weak in bass - leaving the foam greatly improves the sound. Biggest lesson learned = turn down the volume all the way rather than pause when getting on the lift. Battery life is very impressive.

Great substitute for Typical headphones
- I've used it several times
I first was skeptical about Bluetooth Chips by outdoor tech. I have always been a Bluetooth earbuds type of guy but have found it difficult pressing buttons on the headphones between my layers while snowboarding. I wore the chips Ultras inside my sweet protection switcher helmet. I found the buttons to be easily pushed and had fast response to volume or song changing which prevented me from rustling through my layers. Was very impressed by the clarity of phone calls while having the chips in my headset I never had any difficulty with hearing or someone understanding what I was saying. All and all I am impressed with the quality and ease of use of these helmet-compatible headsets.

- I've used it several times
First I'll start off by saying I love the full wireless capability of these headphones and when they work they sound quite good. The bad, the main speaker has a very dull tactile feedback and makes it difficult to tell if you're pressing the button especially with gloves on, The left speaker constantly was cutting in and out when turning my head navigating down the mountain, as mentioned in another review, the self-power off is a bit aggressive and would be nice if that was customizable.

Siri / turns off and on constantly
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Rather than play/pause it kept thinking I was trying to use siri? Also, halfway up the lift everytime they turn off to save power. Otherwise they are really nice. It communicates nicely when they are connected and lets you know which is on. I would rather just go with the CHIPS 2.0

CraIg, You loose power at the same point on the lift due to signal strength not to " save power"
