I too had the Smith Skullcandy bluetooth setup and, like everyone else's, mine crapped out.
Rather than replace it with the not very well reviewed OT setup, I looked over at the world of motorcycle helmet audio setups and I'm very glad I did.
I found the UCLEAR Digital HBC150 setup, which was $180. Yes, it was significantly more expensive than the OT option, but it's been stellar.
It came with a variety of mounting options for the controller, but I used the adhesive mount on the side of my helmet. In hindsight, I might have mounted it a bit higher on the helmet than I did, since my goggle strap kind of hangs on it when I raise them.
The sound quality for music is decent...at least as good as the Skullcandy system, although there's an available speaker upgrade. Sound quality for phone calls is incredible. The mics are built into the speaker capsules and, since they're designed for use on motorcycles, you can have a regular phone conversation even when the wind is howling or while you're screaming down a run at speed. I know this last part because I was having just such a conversation with ski patrol as I skied at speed to reach my son, who'd been injured in a collision a couple weeks ago. (He was OK in the end, with just a minor concussion.)
Using the system with gloved hands is pretty easy too, with all basic functions easily executed. The real win is that the system is compatible with Siri, so I'm able to activate Siri with gloved hands and make calls, play music, etc.
Battery life is excellent. I've listened to music all day, plus made calls, and never once have I run out of juice.
If I'd really been thinking about it, I'd have encouraged my friends to get some too, as there's an intercom function that enables the units to connect to one another as walkie-talkies as well.
