About Skullcandy

Skullcandy started in early 2003 and ever since then they have been creating sport headphones of the highest quality for a number of the top sport athletes in the world.

Skullcandy headphones are known for their style, durability and portability. They are considered sport headphones because they are ideal for people to use whether they are hiking in the mountains, riding their bike, on their skateboard, running and even sitting at home listening to their music on their laptops.

Skullcandy was founded in Park City Utah, right in the heart of the mountains, so they understand the importance of quality headphones for the outdoor enthusiasts. Skullcandy headphones allow you to take your music wherever it is you are going.

They believe in creating headphones that will keep your music flowing through your head regardless of the activity you are in. Here were are taking a look at the three most popular Skullcandy headphones on the market.

Skullcandy Skullcrushers Subwoofer Stereo Headphones

Skullcandy Skullcrushers Headphones
The Skullcandy Skullcrushers Subwoofer is touted as being able to "literally pump music in your head," according to the manufacturer.

The headphones come with an adjustable in-line bass amplifier and speakers with built-in vibrating subwoofers, an industry first. The in-line control wheel lets you control the amount of bass in the music.

These headphones are perfect for MP3 players as well as bass heavy music and portable DVD players. Skullcandy also states that these headphones are great for gamers.

Most customer reviews state the Skullcandy Skullcrushers Subwoofer headphones do an excellent job at keeping what you are listening to between you and the headphones. This means you can rock out and not bother the people around you with your music. It is almost like having a home theatre in your head.

If you are looking for headphones that are going to let you experience the best in bass guitar sounds then you might not be impressed with the ability of the Skullcrushers, which really tend to work best with bass that is below 50Hz whereas most bass guitars register between 50 and 200 Hz.

It also important that you understand that the subwoofers in the headphones are vibrating subwoofers, so don't expect them to act like a regular subwoofer.

Overall though these are great headphones, they keep outside noise out and your noise in.

Skullcandy INK'D Earbuds

Skullcandy INK'D Earbuds
For those that are looking for a step up from the stock ear buds that come with your iPod or MP3 then consider Skullcandy's INK'D ear buds.

The offer 11 mm speakers and a 51 inch cord as well as 3 different silicon ear gels that allows each person to get a more customized fit. They also come in many colors so if you want ear buds that match your iPod, these are the ear buds for you.

Overall the sound quality is very good, better than most other ear buds in the same price range and in some cases better than a few ear buds that are more expensive.

The INK'D ear buds offer an extra boost of bass that other ear buds lack, which allows you to really feel the music. The sound quality is clear and crisp.

Keep in mind that these are ear buds and as with most other ear buds you are going to hear any smack against the cord rather clearly in your ears. This is because ear buds are sound isolating, they are probably not the best ear buds to use during a workout, but excellent for most other uses.

Skullcandy Lowrider Headphones

Skullcandy Lowrider Headphones
The Skullcandy Lowrider headphones are "as loud as they are portable."

They come equipped with 40 mm speakers that are able to be folded in half. This capability makes them ideal for athletes and for travel, not to mention easy storage.

They offer a comfortable fit with leather wrapped earcups and a leather head pad. The cord is 47" long which gives you room to move when you need to move.

They come in many different colors, again if you want to match your earphones to the color of your iPod then the Lowriders are good pick.

The sound quality is pretty good; some may find that they have a little too much bass in them but overall sound is crisp and clean allowing you to completely enjoy your music.

They have 40mm power drivers; 92 degree swivel DJ style speakers as well as a 6.3mm stereo adapter and a travel pouch are all included.
