through pro form the difference is only $6, so why not right? My question is though, do the audio earpads limit your hearing when you're not listening to music? I will ski and work in this helmet 90% of the time without music. So, do the audio earpads block out more external noise than the regular earpads?
The audio is more of a level where you are meant to be able to carry on conversations and whatnot, but still be able to hear it with decent quality. Sure, you can adjust the volume all the way up, but if you need something to block out sound stick with regular earbuds.
nine.9 for $50 and tuneups at REI for $30, i think it's a good deal, but for your question, i can hear about the same, the only difference i noticed is that tuneups are a little thicker then normal ones.
