Outdoor Tech Chips wireless helmet audio
For me skiing is a great chance to get away from distractions like the phone and even music, but if you simply must be wired up when you’re on the mountain the Chips system will appeal as it allows you to listen to your favourite tunes in hi-fi quality sound as well as make and receive phone calls – and all wirelessly.
The Chips will fit inside almost any helmet audio liner and are light enough not to make any real difference to the feel of your helmet.
The 40mm drivers give crisp sound and can be operated with gloved hands, plus there’s a built-in mic.
The whole lot will work as far as 32-feet from your Bluetooth device and functions at minus-20C and below as well as being water resistant, so it’ll handle pretty much anything the mountain can throw at it.
