What are the Best Bluetooth Snowboard Headphones for your helmet?
Snowboarding is by far one of my favorite sports. If you love it as much as I do, then you probably listen to music while riding. Have you ever had to untangle your wires, or pull your phone out in the freezing cold to change a song?
Well, upgrading your helmet to Bluetooth can really help avoid that.
Today I’ll be exploring my top Bluetooth headphones for snowboarding helmets! Again, using Bluetooth vs wired headphones can make a massive difference.
A few years ago, using wireless headphones in your helmet wasn’t really tangible. The battery life and Bluetooth technology was not quite there yet.
However, now batteries have gotten so good that you can expect long-lasting battery life. Additionally, you can get really good audio quality with Bluetooth headphones as well.

What are Bluetooth Snowboard Headphones?
Bluetooth snowboard headphones are headphones specifically made to fit into your snowboarding helmet. These headphones use Bluetooth technology to avoid using any wires going directly to your music device.
In addition, these headphones perfectly fit into your helmet ear pads, so the actual drivers are hidden and protected.
Wildhorn Alta Bluetooth Helmet Speakers
Starting off with the Wildhorn Alta Bluetooth Snowboard Helmet Speakers. These snowboard headphones feature 40mm drivers on each side. These drivers provide a large volume of balanced sound.
In addition, Wildhorn uses Bluetooth 5.0 to provide the best audio stream for the 40mm drivers. You can expect clear highs, solid mids, and powerful bass. Also, the sound is dynamic depending on what volume you are listening to.
They also include hands-free wireless calling. You can easily press the right button twice to active Siri or your related voice assistant. Additionally, you can adjust the playlist being played, volume levels, or even send a text with this feature.
Wildhorn says that their Alta headphones should be compatible with pretty much every snowboard helmet brand (Smith, Poc, K2, Giro, Bolle, Anon, Burton, etc.). The dimensions of the speakers are 2.2-inch by 1.8-inch by 0.5-inch. You can easily drop them into the ear pad lots and then run the connection wire across the back of the helmet.
Finally, the Wildhorn Alta headphones can operating in temperatures as cold as 4 degrees below 0 (Celsius) with up to 10 hours of playtime!
Chips 2.0 Bluetooth Snowboard Headphones
Next up is the Chips 2.0 Bluetooth Snowboard Headphones. These are very similar to the Alta headphones, however with a few differences.
Firstly, they are made by the brand “Outdoor Tech” and features two 40mm drivers. These drivers provide high-quality audio performance. The highs are fairly clear, mids aren’t drone out, and the bass is strong without being overpowering.
Additionally, there are two buttons on the side of the driver. These buttons allow you to adjust volume, change tracks, play, pause or use voice control (Siri). There is a built-in microphone so you can talk on a phone call wirelessly.
Outdoor Tech claims the Chips 2.0 has a battery life of around 10 hours on a single charge, and a temperature resistance of around below 20 degrees Celsius.
Finally, they claim that the headphones should be compatible with pretty much any snowboarding helmet. You can easily drop them right into the ear pads, and then run the wires right behind the back portion of the helmet.
