Today’s reader question:
Any particular headphones you recommend for listening to music while snowboarding?
This is simple, get the cheapest headphones you can find :p Those cheapy $20 ones are ideal for listening to music while snowboarding.
Don’t go out and buy anything fancy because you’ll end up breaking them. Also, you don’t need Skullcandy headphones, even if everyone else seems to like riding with them.
You are going to fall and you definitely don’t want pricy headphones on your head when you’re falling into wet snow. That’s just asking to throw away a bunch of your money.
Even if you don’t fall, you’d be worrying about falling and it’s not fun having to ride extra careful to protect your headphones.
What I use right now:
Honestly, I don’t even use headphones much because you can’t wear them properly with a helmet, plus they don’t stay in place very well if you start doing tricks and getting some air.
I’d recommend a good pair of earbuds over headphones when it comes to snowboarding with music. They stay in place better, they don’t break as easily, and you can wear them under a helmet.
Hope that answers your question!
