Note: I did not notice any heavy base or treble with these. I was extremely happy with this and not looking for a heavy base or treble though; that would make it very difficult to hear around me which would have been dangerous and annoying in regards to any conversations.
I did have to have the volume up all the way with my device to hear the music over my sled when running at 50-60mph. I used them for 5 days during a trip in the Upper Peninsula and I was very happy with them. The cord also seemed to hold up if I forgot to tuck in my coat and left out in the cold air.
I liked that the cord plugged into each speaker so when my iPod shuffle died, I just left the speakers in and was able to pull the cord out and keep it in my pocket. I do wish the cord running between the speakers was longer so I would have been able to run the cord also in the helmet so I didn't catch it on my chin when taking the helmet off.
If you use these for snowmobiling, I say they will hold up in the cold and taking the helmet on and off a lot. Just make sure you have room in your helmet since they are a solid speaker with some thickness to them and not flexible at all.
The headphones I had previously been using in my helmet (also skull candy brand) had padding on the outside of the ear which made them a bit more comfortable on my head. However they acted as earmuffs and made it difficult to hear others speaking (even when the music was muted).
I haven't skied with these yet, but the helmet definitely feels a little looser with these smaller headphones.
One thing they should fix in the future is making the cord shorter on one site. All smith helmets have a single zipper that closes on one side or the other. That particular headphone could use a shorter cable in order to prevent the two from being different lengths. I usually end up jamming some slack back into the helmet to avoid this.
One suggestion, but a blue tooth receiver for about 12 bucks and plug the headphones into them. It fits inside my helmet without causing any discomfort. this effectively turns these into bluetooth headphones for 35 bucks instead of 150 like they usually cost. And you have the added benefit of being able to plug them in if the bluetooth battery dies.
I tried the headphones out initially, and they worked, but when I went skiing, and turned them on for the first time, there was no sound.
Sitting on the lift, gloves stuffed in my jacket, well below freezing, fiddling with headphones and an iPod wasn't super fun. Quickly figured out that a wire going into the volume control was the issue. Bend it one way, sound would come out of the head phones. Bend it a bit, and they cut out.
Not high quality.
I opened a case with the seller (Active Life Store) to return them for a new pair, detailing the issue and the source (wiring). They close it and tell me to try contact spray. Clever. I foresee no success spending $10 on a bottle of contact spray to fix a broken wire in a $25 pair of headphones.
Will just return for refund now and buy something better next year.
