    The Outdoor Tech Chips 2.0 Wireless Bluetooth Helmet Audio fuels progression sessions in the park and powder slashes in the trees with high-fidelity 40mm drivers pumping face-melting guitar solos and inspiring instrumentals straight to your helmet's liner. Audio streaming with Bluetooth devices eliminates annoying wires for good. For riders always on the grind, the Chips 2.0 feature one-tap answering and voice activation, so you'll never have to remove gloves for taking and making calls.

    New for this season, the Chips 2.0 feature a Walkie-Talkie function that sends audio messages to other riders rocking Chips 2.0 on the mountain, meaning you'll never lose your friends to blizzards or confusing terrain. To use the Walkie-Talkie function, you'll have to download Outdoor Tech's Walkie-Talkie app, then set-up a group of messengers you'd like to communicate with on the mountain. There's no range limit for sending audio messages, making it ideal for staying in touch with your riding party across wide swaths of alpine terrain.

    These wireless audio speakers work with compatible ski/snowboard helmets, dropping into the helmet's liner for a seamless listening experience without lugging around bulky headphones. Currently, they're compatible with certain helmets from the following manufacturers: Bern, Anon, Giro, Smith, POC, Pro-Tec, Solomon, and Bollé. Outdoor Tech also makes a compatible K-Roo Pouch (not included) for using the Chips 2.0 speakers with regular skate, snow, and BMX helmets.

    Good luck finding the charging cable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    sure the speakers are great, but they sound just like any other Bluetooth helmet speakers, nothing special. The thing that is special is there charging cable. Its proprietary, it does not charge via a normal USB or mini USB cable, they have their own proprietary charging system, so next season when you're looking for your cable to charge up your headphones, it's going to be lost the same place where your other sock gets lost and your other proprietary cables. Companies that pull this stunt just want you to come back and buy more from them when you lose things like this. How can their engineers be so stupid as to make a system that uses a proprietary charging cable. Can't all these junior varsity outdoor tech companies get their s*** together and make things universal so that it's easier for their customers instead of having to have 30,000 different charging cables for each separate device! I'm sick of it!

    Not 100% perfect but 98%

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've owned a pair of the chips 2.0 for about 3 ski seasons , in those three years I've ever heard 40 days on snow per year and I always have my speakers on. I've gone through two phones both Android systems I have a Smith helmet with adequate ear padding.. first let me say I have a Bose noise cancelling headset and Sony canceling headset that I paid nearly 350 a piece for both of those if you're expecting that type of sound while skiing or snowboarding on a hill then you should go buy those and not wear a helmet.
    The sound of these speakers is more than adequate ,the sound can go loud enough that not only you can rock out in jam but others around you if they're sitting on the chair lift will hear what you're listening to so loudness is not an issue. As far as for the controls they're basically touch controls on the earpiece itself I'm assuming the person that was having trouble operating the touch controls had the speaker on the wrong side of his ear pads like I said these are loud enough and rock very well a slight downside is occasionally the Bluetooth gets a little glitchy, not sure if it's my phone or the headset but most likely a combination of two since I own a lot of Bluetooth things that connect to my phone simple problem disconnect reconnect most of the time 98% of the time no issues with the connection of these speakers the sound is very very good the loudness is more than adequate the walkie-talkie feature how I've never tried, who uses walkie talkies. I'm actually purchasing two more sets to give as gifts this year so don't look at the bad reviews I'm telling you from 3 years of use of a pair they work well. And battery life never had a problem of course after every day of skiing I charge the speakers. Your helmet should have a zip in feature.I do not have to remove the speakers to charge them I just unzip the one side a little bit to reach the charging port hole and I plugged into the wall takes about 2 hours to charge up fully however I do not have the right and left correctly due to the design of where my zipper starts they're actually flipped opposite because the charging port is on the left speaker and my zipper starts on the right not a big deal you learn to realize at the instructions on the controls of pause and stop and turning it up and down or just the opposite I'm pretty sure if you buy these you will not be disappointed

    Great fit for Smith helmet

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I just bought my second pair, the first set I had lasted years but were misplaced. They work really good with Smith helmet, you can easily skip tracks, pause and change volume easily with gloves on. The walkie talkie feature is pretty useless however so if that's something you are looking for you will be disappointed.

    Game Changer!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I haven't played much with the walkie talkie but the music and phone capabilities are great! Seriously nothing better than jamming out on the mountain crushing some pow. Or a sunny groomer/park laps with some tunes is just pure bliss. They sync easy, hold a charge for actually a pretty long time, turn off automatically if you leave them on, and sound quality is pretty decent for what you get. Overall would definitely buy again and tell others!

    Have had these for over 3 years

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have never had problems with this product. Can listen to any music from my iPhone; change volume and skip/replay songs without opening my jacket and touching my iPhone. Sound quality is excellent. Can also ask Siri to read txt messages or give me the time. Of course you can make phone calls as well. Device is completely dependable. They were partially damaged after I cracked my helmet. Will be buying a new set.

    Do you get phone calls on the hill?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This device is a must for anyone who gets or makes a phone call in the hill, first from a safety point of view and secondly from the convenience side. I listen to music and books all the time skiing and working. Have not tried the walkie talkie tool, I just press both headsets simulataneously and say to Siri, Call so and so...my guess is the negative reviews are written by a competitor...spend the money, and if you are disappointed send them back to BC...they wouldn't sell them if they didn't work.

    There's a party in my helmet!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    After reading the reviews before buying, I concluded that I didn't care about the walkie-talkie so I use it purely as bluetooth headphones from my mobile phone. The sound is good and the "clicking" functionality is very convenient once you get the hang of it. The only suggestion was to switch the right and the left to make the charging side a bit easier to access with my Smith helmet. I would recommend these to anyone.

    2 years and still going strong

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have had these headphones for 2 years now. I go snowboarding about 6 times a month (Dec-Apr). They sound great and are easy to control while it is in your helmet. The walkie talkie function isn't the best. But I overlooked that since i did not buy it for the walkie talkie feature. The battery has also never died on me no matter how cold it is outside.

    Horrible walkie talkies

      These worked great for just listening to music but so does a cheaper version of headphones. Bought these for snowboarding and talking to my buddies when bombing down mountains, worked for weeks to try and get the walkie function to work. They either wouldn't sync up correctly, not send the message, not find the other person, or just stop working all together. I know three people who bought these and same problem. The app they built for this is probably the problem. Horrible. Don't buy for the walkie talkie function

      Great product!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I used these this entire ski season. Never had in helmet earphones before. I love the fact that they ware wireless. No need to worry about cords when taking off or putting your helmet on. Being able to invoke Siri with my gloves on through the helmet was a game changer. I did not use the walkie talkie feature so I can't comment on that.

      Cordless Convert.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I'm so happy to be done with headphone cords for my phone! I bought these half way through this season and love them! So easy to use and pair with my phone and I'm usually a bit technology challenged. Battery life lasted for about a two days snowboarding before I recharged just in case. Yes, the sound isn't THE BEST, but it beats having to deal with frozen headphone cords, struggling to change songs with cold fingers on a touch screen and turn on/off your music. I haven't been able to use the walkie talkie feature, only because I have no one to pair with. My snowboarding partner has the 1.0s, which don't have that feature. I wear them with my W smith helmet, and reverse the L and R so I don't have to take them out of my helmet each time I need to recharge them. Looking forward to more spring snowboarding with these!

      Great Product!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Great quality product, skied with them all season and haven't had any issue. They hold up great in different weather conditions! Sound quality is great and the volume can be set really loud which is perfect for helmet integration.

      great technology

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Works as advertised. Sound quality is about what you would expect from an open-air head phone. I wish the maximum volume was a little more, but honestly it's safer to not be totally isolated from the sounds around you. And it may have been the way they were inserted in my helmet as well.

      I did not bother to learn the instructions as to how to use the buttons on the first day, but I did for the second two days and I have to say it's pretty nice to be able to pause the music without taking your gloves off.

      As a warning, these things can get pretty uncomfortable after a few hours, but I think that will improve as the technology advances.

      Love them, worried about the durability

        I picked these up a few months ago. Before this I was using wired speakers so needless to say these have been a great step up. Functionality is great. Sound is just fine to me but I am no audiophile so I cant talk about mids and lows etc.

        First, the one small issue is charge port is opposite the zipper location regarding Smith helmets if you want to unzip partially to charge. So you are stuck wearing them swapped L/R which is not too big a deal for me.

        The larger issue is my first set failed with about a 7 days use. Backcountry was nice enough to swap them out for a new pair which have been working fine on about 10 days so far. Hoping the second pair do not fail.

        Don't Buy for the Walkie Talkie Feature

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Had the 1.0 version of the Chips which worked well enough. I ended up upgrading to the 2.0 Chips primarily for the walkie talkie feature which requires an ODT Audio app to use. The app is horrible and doesn't work the way it should (and ODT knows this) which makes the walkie talkie feature unusable.

        If you're buying them primarily for use with your cell phone to make calls, it works well enough (not worth an upgrade from the 1.0 version, in my opinion). If you're buying them for music, they don't sound all that great--a bit tinny particularly for the size. If you're buying them for the walkie talkie feature, don't waste your money--it doesn't work with the latest app version (read the reviews on the App Store--you'll find mostly 1 star reviews related to the walkie talkie feature).

        I had such high hopes for this.

        I have an iPhone 6+ which I pair with my chips. My daughter got ahold of my phone and forgot the chips as a bluetooth device. Now, I cannot pair the chips to my iPhone. Any idea why or how? Thanks

        Unanswered Question

        My ski buddy and I are having difficulty using the walkie-talkie feature of your produce. While the materials included show the tremendous graphic artistry and quite the investment, there are not clear instructions on how to use the walkie-talkie. Message are recorded but then have to be selected from the iphone to play. He has teh andriod and I have iphone.

        We're in Denver and have a lot of folks in our ski group that are interested in this type of technology. And before I turn in my report that this is no-go / no-show on product promise versus delivery, I'd thought I'd give an opportunity for assistance.
