    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.

    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 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.

    Not worth buying

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Don't even consider these as a way to get music while skiing, hiking or anything else for that matter. A good idea very poorly executed. Terrible sound, VERY inconsistent performance, do not work AT ALL in a Smith snow helmet because the ear pad is too thick to consistently control the device. Just turning your head will cause drop outs in the connection. And the sound...the worst I have EVER heard. I could do better with a rubber band between two fingers.
    An absolute joke of a product. I would return them if I could. Don't make the same mistake I did.

    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.

        Won't Go Back

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Had the 1.0 version of the Chips bluetooth headphones and absolutely loved them. These are a step up, but not necessary in my opinion. The original ones work great and these do too. If you haven't upgraded to wireless yet, you should absolutely! You won't believe how nice it is to make calls and listen to music without the inconvenience of wires. The sound quality is so-so, but the convenience totally makes up for it.

        So glad I upgraded

          Not only happy to get rid of all the wires, the ease of pausing and controlling my music with a touch is priceless. The sound is good but not as amazing as the functionality but still super happy with my purchase.

          Save your money

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Purchased these and used for one ski season then they stopped working. They were a couple months out of 12 month warranty. Their customer service did nothing to resolve the problem. Note, they do not provide a repair option even if you want to pay for it. So you are basically screwed. Safe to say I am very disappointed. Given how much these cost I expect them to function for more than one season and have the company stand behind them. Do not waste you money. Won't be buying or recommending any Outdoor Tech products in the future.

          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.
