[intro]There are headphones, there are beanies. And now there's the headphone-beanie for snowsports, thanks to the painfully cool folks at Skullcandy[/intro]
It's widely accepted that the the most important thing when boarding or skiiing in the Alps is looking cool. And, you know, honing your snow plough so you don't hurtle into a group of schoolkids at 80mph. But mainly looking cool. So, instead of loaning some giant goggles from your hotel, I suggest strapping this to your bonce.
The combination of some Terje Nine headphones and a beanie is, in my book, an even better combination than its maker's compound of the words 'skull' and 'candy'. The DJ-style cans are made from soft, comfy leather and sit directly on your ears thanks to flaps in the beanie. The only downside is that, without the headphones on, the hat is about as useful some fingerless gloves. But you'll look the dog's cojones – which is much more important, right? Of course.
The Skullcandy cans-and-beanie combo is available for £50 from iWorld now.
