No, no, I suppose a helmet with integrated headphones is not exactly new, exciting or anything of the sort. Well, there you have it anyway. If you fancy extreme sports and have reached the conclusion that wearing your regular earmuffs kind of cramps your style, then you might consider the “Nine Tune-Ups II MP3 Helmet”, at $140.
Can’t quite figure out why it’s an “MP3” helmet, since it’ll presumably work with just about any source you plug into it, even, horror of all horrors, not an iPod. I guess “MP3” has become a bit like “2000” before the new millenium. I’m sure you remember things like The Thighmaster2000, or the Orgasmatron2000 and endless other such products.
Well anyway, a little more about the helmet.
It features a coiled cord for extra mobility, an in-line volume/mute control for adjustment on the fly, and it doesn’t compromise fit or feel of traditional ear pads. Tune-Ups ear pads are removable and can be swapped for a regular pad anytime.
