  • Summary: I was very surprsied to read Jude's inital thoughts on these headphones when he first reported that Skullcandy was looking to change up their headphones and when I first saw the Aviators and read the good things about them, I was just about sold.
  • Pros: Bass isn't overpowering, no distortion, looks very nice
  • Cons: None of the spectrum floors me, cord is thin and wrapped in fabric.

  • Summary: Though the best Skullcandy has to offer won't immerse you in music bliss, these are more for you being seen, than audio quality. Such as outdoors, on the bus, walking etc. They are light and you can wear them for hours.  I myself wore them on a roadtrip driving, as to not disturb others.
  • Pros: Microfiber cloth, light
  • Cons: Can hear everything around you, people hear your music, smudgy plastic on cans

  • Summary: I got the Brown ones from Skullcandy.com. They are very stylish, light, soft, and comfortable. I know Skullcandy gets a lot of flack from Audiophiles but for style and sound. I don't know anything like it.   Now my first impressions were very bad. When I put these on.
  • Pros: Style with comfort WITH sound!
  • Cons: Surroundings leak into the experience sometimes. Sounds like crap until broken in.

  • Summary: These headphones are the first from Skullcandy to be focused more on sound quality than appearance, and they're suprisingly good-sounding. However, for $130, you can find better headphones.
  • Pros: Good sound quality for Skullcandy, decent looking headphones, mildly comfortable, available for pre-purchase listening some places.
  • Cons: Not impressive sound quality for $130, not super comfortable.

  • Summary: I remember years ago all the kids in my middle school would say skullcandy's are the best and it would irritate me since i knew they sucked. Now 4 years later I may have to change that.   I knew that the Aviators and Mix Masters were for the most part well received here.
  • Pros: Good sound, good comfort, stylish, portable
  • Cons: poor noise isolation, doesnt feel durable

  • Summary: I own    -ATH m50 -GRADO sr 325is -HD 558 (Modded) -Skullcandy Aviator - HD 600   Of all the headphones these don't have the best detail. But IMHO the sound is very balanced and they sound so cheerfull. Especailly with a DAC/AMP.
  • Pros: Such a happy sound, clear and balanced, Treble is colored a bit but actually sounds nice, They look good
  • Cons: Could have a bit more detail,

  • Summary: I had this headphone for 2-3 months before purchasing more serious cans.     I found these to be better and less conjested than my ATH m50 ....... (Oh boy I said It!)   They seem to provide a nice mid section and a colored treble that sounds ok but does not extend as deep as some cans will.
  • Pros: Fun Youthful Sound, Bass Is Tight, Pretty Mid-Section, Extremely forgiving, For 60 bucks you can't really beat it
  • Cons: Not neutral at all, Very artificially colored in the upper treble, Weak Bass for most,
