TBT to when you used to have to carry your MP3 + your ear buds + your smartphone + your walkie-talkie + heated mittens when you would go ride your local hill. Then remember that time when Outdoor Tech came out with a wireless helmet audio to make your snow trip stress free? No wires, no need to take off them gloves and you can leave your phone in your pocket. Now, we’ve taken the Chips 2.0 and dropped in some sweet new technology, and then slapped it with an app that transforms your Chips 2.0 into working push-to-talk communication dynamos. We’re working our way through the list to cross off stuff that you need to bring until it is just your skis, your poles, and your birthday suit going down the slopes (… we’ll test in France first). There's no limit to the range on the Chips 2.0 Walkie-Talkie feature; so for now, stay light, wireless, and connected with this helmet audio system.
Wireless Audio for your Helmet
Works with nearly any audio compatible helmet, the Chips 2.0 stream music from your Bluetooth audio device, completely wirelessly. Each earpiece features a single oversized button that you can operate easily with your mittens still on. Simple button press combinations let you control every feature without ever removing your device from your pocket.
Clean Sound, Clear Highs, Big Bass
The Chips 2.0 come equipped with optimally tuned 40mm drivers to create incredible sound in your melon saver. You may not want to take your helmet off, ever. If this leads to people wearing lids on the street in the middle of summer, well, all we can say is: we set the trend.
Walkie Talkie Feature Built-In!
Grabbed the Chips 2.0? Great, now go set your phone up with our free ODT Walkie-Talkie app and get started creating some groups. Your 99 favorite snowboarding friends? Check. Your bunny hill loving little brothers? Sure, knock yourself out. Setup those favs and then use those Chips 2.0 to talk to each group using just the Chips 2.0. And since it uses your cell network, the range is truly limitless (provided you got bars).
The Bluetooth connection, built-in microphone, and simple button interface of the Chips 2.0 mean you can answer your next call without removing your helmet or gloves. No more fishing in your pants or pulling off your lid to tell your Ma you’ll be home in time for dinner. Just make sure you hang up before you start hassling ski patrol or debating skate laws with the police.
The Chips 2.0 are compatible with helmets from the following manufacturers (and possibly more), as long as they have slots for audio drop-ins: Bern, Giro, Smith, K2, Anon, Pro-Tec, Bolle
