“Soundshield™ is a snow sports helmet with detachable, wireless headphones, all seamlessly integrated into one, awesome looking combo. It features glove-proof controls and a built in mic to take calls on the slopes. This is our version of what music on the slopes should’ve always been.”

What do you think of this new helmet/headphone combo design by Unit 1? The SOUNDSHIELD™retails for $269 USD so its right around what you would expect to pay for a decent helmet and decent over-ear headphones but comes as an integrated package. The patented  QUAD4LOCK docking system promises to keep your headphones secure and the easy to use interface can be operated with gloves on. Thoughts?
