      September 13, 2012

      If you insist on listening to music after (or during) a gnarly day on the slopes, these musical earmuffs might appeal to you. With a high maximum volume and decent tracking, these over-ear headphones can provide a bumpin' soundtrack while you think about how extreme you were out on the hill.

      The good: The stylish Roc Nation Aviator headphones reach beyond Skullcandy's tween demographic and bring a sophisticated look and detailed sound design to the mobile market.

      The bottom line: The style-savvy Skullcandy Roc Nation Aviator headphones earn our recommendation for balancing a unique thematic design with exceptional clarity in spite of a slightly passive low-end response.

      Skullcandy continues to pursue its youthful listening-device niche with the Aviators, a collaborative effort with Roc Nation, a music publishing and entertainment company founded by hip-hop mogul Jay-Z.

    • Aviator: Skullcandy Aviator Offers Audiophiles Food for Thought

      March 25, 2011

      Publication: Wired Magazine

      Skullcandy is known for making headphones that put fashion first and sound quality second.

      You’ve probably seen its krazy-kool neon and graffiti-splattered cans stacked up for sale in mall kiosks, or clamped to the dome of some young’n on a skateboard as he whisks by and spills your latte all over your Haggar slacks.

      The company’s demo skews young, and we all know the kids don’t necessarily care if their music sounds good, as long as it’s loud. Needless to say, Skullcandy’s headphones haven’t ever scored high marks among audiophiles. Being one of these snobbish elites, my expectations were not inflated when I received a shipment of Roc Nation Aviators, a set of headphones cross-branded with Jay-Z and LiveNation’s Roc Nation promotions outfit.

      Skullcandy is angling the $150 set as its first foray into audiophile territory. It’s a shrewd move. All those tweens who grew up on Skullcandy cans are now graduating to adulthood, collecting their first real paychecks and looking to upgrade all the little things in their lives. And maybe they’ve outgrown the desire to wear bright pink skulls on their ears.

      The Aviators’ styling is unique and fashionable, but not garish. True to the name, they’re reminiscent of the iconic aviator sunglasses. They have see-through plastic over-the-ear cups, leather pads, suede headband, nylon cord and chrome accents along the edges. Three colors are available: white, black and brown/gold.

      So, they’re not ugly. That’s a plus, I thought. But then I put them on and — wait a minute, these actually sound pretty good. Not amazing, but much better than anything else I’ve heard from Skullcandy thus far.

      The Aviators can get a little abrasive at times, especially when you’re listening to modern rock or techno. And the bass isn’t as present as I’d like it to be. Hip-hop sounds oddly tinny. But put on some mellower stuff that hasn’t been amped up to appeal to today’s ADHD standards — Nina Simone, Cat Power, James Blake, singer-songwriter stuff, classic rock — and the Aviators impress. My headphone nerd friends were all curious, so we passed them around and everyone agreed: solid.

      Makes Your Music BETTER

      August 8th, 2014

      by DJ Koppenaal

      I have had several SkullCandys, This is the most money I have spent on a pair of headphones, So I was VERY pleased to see they came with a very sturdy travel case for protection. The detachable cord is proper. And as far as "over the ear" models go... These are it. Good looking, and the sound is PROPER. Any excuse you have to listen to music with your aviators, you take it. Perfect Bass, The only thing I can say I wish the box contained is one of the small zipper packs for the detachable cord. But If you have had SK's before you prob have some laying around so they dont get tangled. I waited for 8 months to save up for these, and I was not disappointed. -DJ

      Skullcandy Aviators

      April 19th, 2014

      by John Clark

      At first I was all hyped up about these headphones and couldn't wait to get some hard drum and bass playing on them. Much to my dismay they had little to no bass off of my sony MP3 player. The more I played with them I realized I could get some head rumbling if I hooked them up to a full blown equalizer and tweaked the levels. Yes they will produce some amazing bass, it just takes some effort. After a while I tried them with some old school rock and a bit of metal and it blew me away as to how clear they were. Would definitely recommend them for less bass based music. Also I destroy most everything that is weak within three months (long line of broken headphones) but these seem to be well built. The whole reason they caught my eye was the metal connecting the cups to the band itself (which is where most of mine have broken in the past)

      Good stuff but BURN THEM!

      March 26th, 2014

      by Dexter

      These are my first pair of expensive headphones and I bought them about 3 months ago. When I first plugged them in they actually did not sound that hot at all (The first song I played was from celldweller which is a hard artist to master because its hard-rock mixed with electronic) , But they kept opening up (or maybe it was my ear getting used to it and now they sound allot more OPEN and CRISP.) These headphones honestly don't do that well with some rock bands and rock songs due to them actually being so clear (they still act better in these situations than reg. headphones or dre's duh). However, They sound SOLID when in a quiet room and are listening to more strings or vocal- sound oriented music (Singer songwriters) or something like Aviicii (Drake's new album actually sounds really nice on these). I'm also not a bass-head, but these are not EXTREMELY bass heavy. Which is perfectly fine for me ( I look for clarity and overall balance). They also look great which is a nice bonus. They are comfy but hurt my right ear after LONG sessions (I'm talking a very long time here) But honestly, Play some Eric Benet or Adele on these and they will amaze. 8)

      Amazing Sound Quality

      February 7th, 2014

      by David B

      I've been a fan of SkullCandy for a number of years, and I have yet to be let down. These are quality products. I believe I have found the one brand I will stand by for many years to come. Onto this product though. I first got it because, they looked pretty awesome. They had a retro look and with this color scheme look like something a fighter pilot would wear in WW2. The sound quality is better than any other headphones I've used to date. They are also very comfortable and fit nicely over my ears. The band rests nicely on my head as well. If I had one complaint, it's that I'm not sure if the mic works or how to get the buttons on the cord to raise or lower the volume, in this respect I like my old SkullCrushers with the dial.

      "music to my ear-holes.

      August 18th, 2013

      by Lord Draco Marevilous "diggity" Nelsion Jr. The II

      I bought these headphones as a quick replacement before a long plane ride, read reviews most raved about them some said beats were better, but it is my belief that the Skullcandy Aviator's blow the beats out of the water. As of today i have had my Aviator's for just under a year and they have already amazed me. The sound quality is Impressive for the price, The highs are sharp and precise, The mid is clear (not fuzzy like other overly-priced brands) and the Bass while underwhelming is thoroughly satisfying. The build quality is out of this world the actual headphones themselves are made with aluminum, a leather head cushion and plastic for the caps. now i am not exactly gentle with my headphones but no matter what they still look like they did out of the box. The ear cups are plush and comfy and haven't lost their shape at all. The removable cable is durable and reliable, they have out-lasted Three Beats cables. Really the only con I have found is they leak like a cardboard house and have barely any sound isolation. But at the end of the day if you want a set of headphones that for a low low price will rock your socks off, buy em!!!

In addition, Skullcandy's customer service is impeccable, as they will replace your product without question, quickly, in the case that something breaks. So if you want some superb sounding headphones, order these. Trust me- these Aviators are a way better value than any Beats.

      I got the aviators just the other day. After reading reviews and asking friends about goods and bads about over ear headphones, I decided to get them. They first of all look super cool. The triangle shape fits your ear very well. They do have mini subwuphers in them. (If you want proof listen to the Harlem shake. Great!) the padding on top is soft so if you just want to put it on your neck its fine. It comes with a case with cleaner and manual. I love the mic., its super useful. Overall I'm glad I bought them. P.S. if your trying to decide between studio beats and aviators... Aviators is overall better.

      February 7th, 2013

      I'm on my second set of aviators. First pair lasted me about a year and a half of heavy use before the microphone gave out. They were soon replaced by another set of Aviators from Skull Candy's lifetime warranty. I first tested these at an Apple store and was blown away when I realized they were Skull Candy. These are the most comfortable over the ear headphones I have used. For a medium sized head and ears, the cups do not touch my ears, giving me hours of comfortable listening. I'm not an audiophile, but I do enjoy my music. These headphones have a perfect balance of bass and treble for my needs. They are not noise cancelling, but I wasn't looking for a set of noise cancelling headphones. These headphones are pricier in the Skull Candy lineup, but I think they are well worth it for the comfort alone.

      I have owned a pair of aviators for over 5 months now, and they have not shown any sign of wear. They are very durable, as well as super stylish, nice to wear around the neck. They are also ridiculously comfortable, light to the touch, but play some music and they blow you away. These are the clearest cans I've ever heard, despite my range of headphones I've used. Beats, Senheiser, to name a few. The bass is tight and strong, not overpowering, but enough to maintain a spotlight for the crisp mids and clear highs. They are well rounded for any genre of music, an they are certainly the greatest cans in their price range. I would highly recommend these to anyone, as they can take on any music genre with ease.

      I was lucky enough to try these alongside a selection of Sennheiser, Beats, Fender and a few other makes. Of the lot the top end aluminium beats are still the king - JUST. At twice the price the Aviators walk all over them, i was lucky enough to be given a pair of white ones for Christmas and are the best headphones i've owned, fantastic spacialisation, great drive at the bottom end, clear and precise treble delivery, they deliver almost everything the beats ones do for a lot less investment. The memory foam ear pads make them incredibly easy to wear for long periods of time, they maybe don't shut out as much noise as the beats but the sound delivery makes up for it. If you're seriously considering paying out over £300 for a set of Beats headphones please try these first - you won't be disappointed, I know i'm not!

      These are excellent headphones. The sound is excellent. The comfort is wonderful. They style is obviously awesome. One flaw, I am going on my 3rd pair because the cord broke on two of them. I use them very often, probably way more than the average person. But, it's just normal use, and the cord should be designed to handle years of normal use, not months. However, because of the lifetime warranty, and the exceptional service I have received from Skullcandy. I still give them 5 stars overall. The pros far outweigh the one con.

      As always skull candy does not disappoint with fantastic sound quality and exquisite design. However I bought these in hope that an over ear headphone would hurt less than an on hear headphone while wearing glasses, as the ear piece of the glasses being pressed into your head for several hours can become extremely painful. Unfortunately this was not the case, they actually ended up hurting even more. If you don't wear glasses then you should have no problem with comfort, these are top notch. If however you, like me, are in search of a pair to comfortably wear with glasses, stay away.

If these ever break, I'll buy some more identical ones the next day. They're also relatively inexpensive compared to the brands they compete with.

      I love these things! The sound is THE best I've seen, and they're ultra comfy! I've dropped these about 100 times, and the glass is still intact and the sound stays the same. The cord is the only thing I'd complain about. It's pretty flimsy, but you can just go and buy one for about $20 at any tech shop. The cord's detachable so you can just plug in any old cord to fix it. All my friends always complement me on how good they look, and they go with just about anything. If you're considering buying these, do! They last forever, and the sound stays great unlike Beats. A definite must-have for any music addict.

      Aviators = my favorite SC headphones!

      August 15th, 2012

      by Billy REEF

      So, first thing I need to say is that I've had 5 different Skullcandy headphones and 4 of them broke or lost sound in one ear. This sounds like a bad thing but if you think about it, headphones of all brands do this, regular wear will beat up the cable connections, it's just a fact of life. So, Skullcandy has it figured out, they know how to keep their customers happy. My personal example: all 4 of those SC headphones that broke on me were replaced without an extra dollar out of my pocket. The warranty program is the bomb. You don't even have to buy the same ones that broke, you can get a newer version or even a different style. Good work, Skullcandy! Anyway, on to my review of the Aviators. Style: Aviators are d@mn good looking. I've never got more compliments and positive comments on a pair of headphones in my life. These headphones are pretty/hot/boss/ballin'/bad@$$ or whatever words you prefer for describing mad good looks. Comfort: They stay put, keep the wind out when bombing hills on a longboard, and are comfortable for long sessions in front of a computer or biking around town. The "ear well" is shaped like an ear (i don't know why all headphones aren't this way) which I love, especially because I have slightly bigger ears (I'm 6'4"). Quality: These are study and well built. There is metal, not just the typical plastic in the headband. The ear pads come with backups if you want to switch up the color, and they stay put, only come off when you want. The sound is great, never could complain about the bass, mids, highs. I was completely satisfied bumping some beats loud or chilling to some downtempo jazz on near mute. Great quality. They also come with a legit protective carrying case (not the typical black silky bag they give out). The headphones partially fold up nicely , which is convenient and not found in most over the ear headphones. Overall: I would highly recommend these (especially if you can get them cheaper than the retail price)

      This is my second pair of Aviators. Not only do they have beautifully defined sound, but they are REMARKABLY comfortable. If you're really sub hungry, you might not get the over powering bass you want, but it's in good taste. I listen to hip-hop, dub-step, and punk, and the bass is nothing to scoff at. The sound is clear, crisp, and full on all levels. An absolute treat to listen to. Moreover: Other headphones just feel cheap and outdated (even tho their sound is fine) after owning these, haha. Seriously, the way headphones feel has never been so much a part of the listening experience. Solid, quality construction, feel, and look.

      I have been a big fan of Skullcandy for awhile now and when i saw the Aviators for the first time i immediately wanted them. I could only hope they would sound as good as they look which they do. Most people buy headphones instead of earbuds because of the Bass and these really bang the drums even at low volume. Couldn't ask for a better logo on the brand either, Roc Nation is pretty sick and i'm a fan, which gave me another reason to save up for a pair. Don't go buying Dr. Dre Beats thinking there the best..... because they're not. They're just over-rated and over-priced. Have some style and go get a pair of these instead. Even the box they came in was pretty amazing.....i kept that too.

      ITS PRETTY GOOD,only problem is it sounds a little hollow,but over that its not bad,the bass is not overwhelming,but it packs a punch in volume.the case is leather and has pockets inside for the detachable cable,and the box is really cool.the headphones are a retro finish which changes the game when you rock these out in public.

      BOTTOM LINE YES, I recommend this product

    Featured Review

    Well done, Skullcandy.

    I've had Aviators before, Brown/Gold combo, but they were the old model that didn't feature a detachable cord. These headphones are top notch. SUPER comfortable, I've been wearing them since this morning when I got them and no discomfort whatsoever. Its like clouds on my ears. Sound quality is brilliant as well. Bass is controlled yet prominent, not muddy or anything. Not too much or too little; Its just right. Treble and clarity are fantastic, very crisp and warm sounding. You owe it to yourself to get these wonderful headphones.

    • Aviator: USA Today Skullcandy Aviator Headphone Review

      September 13, 2012

      If you insist on listening to music after (or during) a gnarly day on the slopes, these musical earmuffs might appeal to you. With a high maximum volume and decent tracking, these over-ear headphones can provide a bumpin' soundtrack while you think about how extreme you were out on the hill.

    • Aviator: Skullcandy Roc Nation Aviator Headphones

      April 24, 2011

      Publication: Cnet

      The good: The stylish Roc Nation Aviator headphones reach beyond Skullcandy's tween demographic and bring a sophisticated look and detailed sound design to the mobile market.

      The bottom line: The style-savvy Skullcandy Roc Nation Aviator headphones earn our recommendation for balancing a unique thematic design with exceptional clarity in spite of a slightly passive low-end response.

      Skullcandy continues to pursue its youthful listening-device niche with the Aviators, a collaborative effort with Roc Nation, a music publishing and entertainment company founded by hip-hop mogul Jay-Z.

    • Aviator: Skullcandy Aviator Offers Audiophiles Food for Thought

      March 25, 2011

      Publication: Wired Magazine

      Skullcandy is known for making headphones that put fashion first and sound quality second.

      You’ve probably seen its krazy-kool neon and graffiti-splattered cans stacked up for sale in mall kiosks, or clamped to the dome of some young’n on a skateboard as he whisks by and spills your latte all over your Haggar slacks.

      The company’s demo skews young, and we all know the kids don’t necessarily care if their music sounds good, as long as it’s loud. Needless to say, Skullcandy’s headphones haven’t ever scored high marks among audiophiles. Being one of these snobbish elites, my expectations were not inflated when I received a shipment of Roc Nation Aviators, a set of headphones cross-branded with Jay-Z and LiveNation’s Roc Nation promotions outfit.

      Skullcandy is angling the $150 set as its first foray into audiophile territory. It’s a shrewd move. All those tweens who grew up on Skullcandy cans are now graduating to adulthood, collecting their first real paychecks and looking to upgrade all the little things in their lives. And maybe they’ve outgrown the desire to wear bright pink skulls on their ears.

      The Aviators’ styling is unique and fashionable, but not garish. True to the name, they’re reminiscent of the iconic aviator sunglasses. They have see-through plastic over-the-ear cups, leather pads, suede headband, nylon cord and chrome accents along the edges. Three colors are available: white, black and brown/gold.

      So, they’re not ugly. That’s a plus, I thought. But then I put them on and — wait a minute, these actually sound pretty good. Not amazing, but much better than anything else I’ve heard from Skullcandy thus far.

      The Aviators can get a little abrasive at times, especially when you’re listening to modern rock or techno. And the bass isn’t as present as I’d like it to be. Hip-hop sounds oddly tinny. But put on some mellower stuff that hasn’t been amped up to appeal to today’s ADHD standards — Nina Simone, Cat Power, James Blake, singer-songwriter stuff, classic rock — and the Aviators impress. My headphone nerd friends were all curious, so we passed them around and everyone agreed: solid.
