Universal Wireless Helmet Audio + Walkie-talkie
You’re looking at the CHIPS 2.0 universal wireless helmet audio + walkie-talkie system by Outdoor Tech: Bluetooth compatible in-helmet speakers with simple, glove-friendly controls for audio, phone, voice command (Siri) and push-to-talk walkie-talkie functions. Your helmet just became your favorite piece of gear. You’re welcome.
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.

Fully Wireless, And Universal
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.
It Isn't Magic... It's Science. Walkie-talkie Feature Has Ar
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).
Built-in Call Functionality
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

I bought them to use the walkie talkie feature. After trying to get it to work I called tech support and they basically said it doesn't work and to return them. They said they are not really advertising them as a walkie talkie any more.
That being said. As for audio. The sound quality was pretty good. They fit perfectly into my Giro helmet. And the features are super easy to use. It was also super easy to pair.
The biggest issue with the walkie talkies is there app is flawed and they have no intention to fix it. I tried using them with the Zello app and they worked better but I had issues setting up the ptt button. You can get the Eco pods from ecox and they work great with zello and are basically the same as the chips but with out as good sound quality.
So it a toss up if you want good sound and no walkie talkie. Or ok sound and working walkie talkies.
- Great sound quality.
- Great battery life.
- Easy to use while wearing mittens.
- Takes a minute to get familiar with the shortcuts and button combos.
- Uses a non traditional power cable instead of a micro usb. Meaning if you lose it, you'll need to get a replacement from outdoor tech.
- No shortcut to go back a track, only option to move forward.
If these things worked as advertised i don't even think they would be worth the price they're asking for these things, at least not with that terrible sound quality. If the sound was better and it worked as advertised i would say they might be worth the pretty high price they're asking for them. As they stand now i seriously don't think they're worth more than $50 and that's being very generous! There's a few other companies that make a similar product, i would highly recommend doing some research before you purchase these.
Disable "Media Sync" because these will either be too loud or too quiet.
Sound quality is surprisingly good considering the size of these. These do cause a bit of listening fatigue if run too loud.
Downside of these is the headphone jack charger disables the headphones if it's plugged in (even if there's no current). Wanted to route the cable inside the helmet for quick connection (since you have to dig these out of the far side of the helmet - kind of a pain to extract and reseat them every time you need to charge).
Microphone on those things is pretty bad: if you get a phone call no one will hear you and you will be reaching for your phone.
Last but not least, the buttons are useless. You use a combination of clicks to control the thing, but the device can't tell the difference between two single clicks and a double-click, a click and a long click, and there are triple-clicks too. Forget it. If you get this, you will need another way to control it. It says it's designed for glove operation. Yeah right.
As a friend eloquently puts it, the buttons are as useful as the lifeguard on the swimming olympics.
The voice command feature works great with siri and google assistant to play songs, playlists, make calls, adjust volume, etc. If you don't have cell service though the commands you can use become limited.
Volume adjusting using the buttons can be annoying because you have to press the button a whole bunch because each press changes by one increment. I use the voice command and say 10% or 80% volume.
No reason for the walkie talkie feature to even exist. It doesn't work half the time and it uses your cell network. So if you have a cell signal, its way easier and better quality to just phone the person you want to talk to.
Battery has been good. Usually get away with 1-2 full days on the hill without a charge.

Sound - They go plenty loud - they sound better if you do your helmet strap up tight. The sound is not going to blow anyone away - its decent enough - passable but still enjoyable.
Comfort - they hurt my ears causing pressure against them even when my helmet wasn't tight. I thought I was going to have to return them. Then I noticed my helmet had foam ear padding glued in the ear cups. After removing that they are very comfortable and not noticeable. Great stuff.
Functionality - I like the functionality pressing the ear pads to control various things. I haven't tried the walkie talkie and I doubt I will. I bought them just for music. They're a bit more of a pain to put in the helmet than I would like but still the battery lasts a good while.
The novelty of having your helmet turned into a party with nothing that can fall out of your ears is immense. Really cool product. I think i'm going to really enjoy it.
How wrong I was. These are horrendous to wear. It is like someone fitted cheese graters to the ear cups of your helmet!
The design is just plain lazy with no thought to comfort. They are certainly not worth the money!
Unfortunately that is only half of what Bluetooth headphones are supposed to do and these headphones have without doubt the worst issues I have ever experienced with any device. I tested these at home and the connection is great whilst the user is not moving. However as soon as you take these onto a ski resort the problems begin. I tried it in every pocket I had in 2 jackets and two sets of board pants, but they constantly cut out regardless of where they are.
This is unacceptable for a device which is designed to be used by active participants. They work fine whilst in a cable car or on a chairlift, but as soon as you are on a slope and making turns the signal cannot be maintained.
Absolutely hopeless, and the manufacturer has clearly not spent enough time testing these out in real world usage.
Find an alternative, because these will drive you mental.
