Initial complaint aside, they work great so far, granted it’s just day one. Sound is just as good as wired pair I used to use in my ski helmet. Volume, skip, answer controls are all very easy and work fine with gloves on. Looking forward to ditching the cord on the slope and all the hassle involved. Small note: package comes with charging usb cable but no plug, so a usb plug from another device is needed.
Update: used them skiing all week. Signal does seem to get interrupted if not in pocket close to them. Also ran into weird issue where touch screen on phone stopped working once I used the headphone controls. Sound quality and volume are good. Knocked it down to three stars. Would return them but they solve more problems then they cause. (No wires and control through the ear pieces made it just convienient enough to keep)
1. Bluetooth connection cut out all the time and finally the right speaker stopped working when using bluetooth.
2. The buttons on the speakers worked great with gloves.
3. Walkie-talkie feature is stupid, I didn't by it for that and to me there is no point for having this feature because you can call or tell Siri to text someone while using bluetooth on the speakers
4. Sound volume definitely is the loudest out of any helmet speakers and I would say the sound quality is average/good for what they are.
5. Surprisingly, talking on the phone on bluetooth was crystal clear and worked flawlessly.
I had to send in my chips since the right speaker stopped working and am waiting to receive a new set. After reading other reviews it seems outdoor tech has some quality control issues since some of the devices sold work flawlessly and the others have bluetooth issues like me. This bluetooth problem also seems to come from the fact that have separate bluetooth chips in each speaker. I expect that a company would have better quality control issues for a $130.00 product. When they worked I loved them, but I'll have to see if my new set has the same issues. Don't buy these for the app.
-Good audio quality, considering their open speaker design. Can still hear people around me, as well as the music.
-Adequate battery life. Enough for a full day on the mountain.
-Construction feels nice in the hands.
-Microphone quality was good enough that people could understand me while I was skiing.
-Poor Bluetooth connectivity. If I rotated my head to the right, with my Google Pixel 2 in my left breast pocket, the sound would cut out.
-Unreliable Play/Pause functionality. The ability to "Play" after pausing would randomly go out, and would require multiple phone resets before it would return. SOMETIMES. Often it would not work at all, forcing me to use voice commands, or physically pull the phone out. This absolutely ruined my enjoyment of the device.
-Right speaker died after ONE day of use.
It is unfortunate that ODT appears to have a monopoly on the Bluetooth helmet speaker market. Even units by Smith & Giro are actually just branded ODT units. If I could go with literally anyone else, I would. After giving them a second try and having a garbage experience yet again, I am seriously contemplating putting up with wired helmet speakers.

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.
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.
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).
