Disappointing... nowhere near the sound quality of the Aviators

Summary: Five stars: completely exceeded my expectations and would highly recommended Four stars: better than expected and would probably recommended Three stars: met my expectations with no hidden surprises or shocks Two stars: below my expectations and probably wouldn't recommend One star: completely below my expectations and certainly wouldn't recommend First off, I also own a pair of the Navigator's bigger brother, the Aviators.
Summary: intermittent performance with video camera(only one side) and would prefer a straight jack into headphones rather than a 90 degree angled jack, it makes it too fiddly to assemble. Received a free pair of in ear phones with this order and both sound excellent.
Summary: In the case of these Skullcandy headphones you are definitely paying for the brand. The sound quality is great but that is clearly an afterthought here. Construction is solid. Unlike their lower-priced "lowrider" range, these are much less likely to break due to the metal that is used to make the headband. They are comfortable to wear. Sound quality is about what you'd expect. Sufficient bass and high end mean that these reproduce all kinds of music to a decent level.
Summary: These are a stylish looking pair of headphones with a glossy black finish. However, they don't fit very comfortably and I found I had to try and bend them to fit - much like I do with uncomfortable spectacles. The sound quality was great to me, but then I'm new to these earphones having only ever owned cheap earbuds before, so have nothing to compare with. All in all, I am very pleased with the headphones and will be ditching my cheap earbuds in favour of them.
Summary: As usual for Skullcandy, the Navigator On-Ear Headphones have an inviting look and (for me, at least) great sound values. Using them with my iPhone 4, they made rock music come alive in my ears like my other, cheaper headphones simply cannot. That isn't to say that the music didn't threaten to overwhelm the singing in some of the songs (definitely a downer, all things considered) but that the sound I got from these was preferable to what I've become accustomed to with...
Summary: These are a nice looking pair of headphones. They pack down nicely for travel (or perhaps to go in a jacket pocket or a handbag) - the earpads fold back inward, the cable can be detached, and they come with a little travel bag to keep them from scratches. I was disappointed with the sound quality - compared to my JVC HAFX1X Xtreme Xplosives In Ear Canal Headphones or the Sony MDR-V150 Headphones with Reversible Housing for DJ Monitoring (both much cheaper options), these...
Summary: These Skullcandy Navigator headphones are not a budget option and sit towards the top of the Skullcandy range. Whilst you can spend a lot more on headphones I expected serious performance for this sort of money. These are a folding set of closed back on ear headphones with a short detachable cable and are explicitly focussed on the smartphone/tablet user. With this in mind to review these headphones I listened to music and watched films on a Mk2 iPad.
