This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a product like this and it won’t be the last. There are a number of ski-worthy products hitting the market recently. Hopefully, this will be one that will stick around. SkiTooth is a pair of Bluetooth wireless headphones designed for the helmet of skiers (a helmet accessory) coming from the company EURO CB (a Philippines-based company).
This style of headphones can potential be quite useful when hitting the slopes. At least this has been our experience with the few models we have tested in recent years. You want something safe to use if you are going to listen to music or take calls while skiing. This means nothing stuck in your ears that can cause damage from impacts or prevent you from still being able to hear the environment around you.
Of course, a design like this heavily depends on audio quality as you don’t just want tinny music pointing at your ears. You want to be able to enjoy what you are actually listening to if you are going to bother to listen to anything at all. Which is something this company claims to deliver with “great audio quality and lots of bass” (mind you, we haven’t tested this for ourselves).
The headphones attach to the sides between the helmet and the straps like most helmet Bluetooth solutions and feature simple-looking controls on the right side. The controls appear to be for volume, as well as controlling incoming calls. There is a built-in rechargeable battery they are promising 15 hours of use from, and the overall design looks pretty simple and light in weight.
This will be launching sometime this month for an MSRP of $69. There’s not much more known about them just yet (ie, what BT version, driver size, etc). No pre-order information is available either, so you’ll have to wait until it hits stores before you’ll be able to throw some money out there to try it out yourself (or to learn more). As mentioned, hopefully, it is a brand that sticks around if it winds up being a killer product.
