Moto Burton headwear
You may recall earlier news about the Burton Audex jacket, which was a collaboration between Motorola and Burton that let skiers and snowboarders listen to music or take phone calls through a Bluetooth wireless link between your phone and speakers built into the hood. Today, the two companies partnered up with R.E.D. to expand the Audex lineup with a beanie hat and helmet, both of which have Bluetooth and stereo speakers built-in so you can tune in without cables (or spending more money on the jacket). Instead of buttons on a sleeve, you use rotary controls on the side of the headwear to managel your music or phone calls. Though the official prices aren't listed on the product page, you can find the padded hat for $126 (normally $180) and the helmet for $150 (normally $250).
