There are a myriad of skateboard helmets with headphones built-in. However, most, if not all of them are off-brand headphones that hardly make the mashup of products attractive.
Beats by Dr. Dre partnered up with POC Sports to produce the Receptor BUG Communication helmet. Yup, that’s the product’s name, but that aside it looks to be a nice blend of style and superior audio quality. The helmet has a ventilated double-shell system with an EPS liner. The headphones are built-in to the ear pads and include a 1.3m cord, and controls for changing tracks and modifying the volume.
Of course this doesn’t come cheap (about $340 US), though it does come in a variety of sizes and your choice of black or white. POC says the Receptor BUG Communication helmet will ship January of next year. No word if we’ll see it come to the US.
