High hopes brought down
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I really had high hopes for these as I was coming out of a good relationship with a POC Communicator Bug helmet with Beats by Dre. The POC worked great and sounded greater, sadly, the venting was not keeping up with climate change. I'm sure the new ones are better but Backcountry.com had a good deal on a Smith helmet and I heard good things. Initially, I bought the wired Chips but between my phone crapping out and not being impressed by the wired setup I decided to try Bluetooth. After all, the wired drivers had a decent sound. Living room setup? Check! Sounded great after charging. All the controls are...controlling. After about 6 uses on the hill the sound went south and the drivers had uneven volume. Not cool. Back to wired.
