are Skullcandy's new mainstream designed $100 pair of plastic constructed, closed back cans. But these aren't just another pair of headphones, because the Crusher features an independent vibrating driver which is supposed to deliver that extra bit of THUMP right beside the 40mm speaker driver in both ear cups. Much like a tweeter and woofer setup, but not quite. Users will be able to adjust the intensity of the vibration using the on-board control. This interesting setup should help the Crusher pump...
Measurements: The Hesh 2.0’s frequency response is definitely tilted toward the bass and lower midrange; treble response rolls off pretty fast above 2 kHz. Adding 70 ohms output impedance to the V-Can’s 5 ohms to simulate the effects of using a low-quality amplifier had only a mild effect, boosting bass by +1 to +1.5 dB below 60 Hz. Total harmonic distortion (THD) is rather high, hitting 7% at 20 Hz at 80 dBA and really spiking below 45 Hz at 100 dBA. (I know the measurement looks weird, but I repeated...
Unlike the previously mentioned Astro Gaming A30 and A40 headsets, the PLYR 2 headsets do not need a separate wireless adapter in order to function wirelessly. Instead, they are built into the headset itself, similar to the new A50 headsets. All you need to do it connect the wireless receiver to your TV and gaming console and you’re pretty much set to use them. On the wireless receiver, you need to plug in the audio cables first that connect to your television set that goes between the audio cable...

The best thing they have going for them is their level of isolation. For listening anywhere with a significant amount of background noise, the sealed fit is superior. The 50/50s come with three sizes of silicone tips, and the smalls provided a snug and comfortable fit even for my small ear canals. The construction is sturdier than most in this range, as well. -- Christina Bonnington

The MMMs have some very cool DJ-specific features, my favorite being a trick that switches the headphones from stereo to mono when you twist one of the earpads, dumping both the right and left channels into the driver that’s still over your ear. This is handy for beat matching or cueing up a crossfade, as it gives you a better idea of how well the track you’ve got on deck will sit with the track that’s currently playing. To that end, there’s also a mute switch nestled into one of the ear cups that...

Truth be told, I don’t feel transported to a higher plane of audio ecstasy with these things on my head, but sound quality isn’t bad by any means. I’ve been running around with an older set of Bose over-the-ears for the past few weeks and it’s hard to compete with those noise-cancelling beasts. When I put the Bose cans over my ears, all the excess sound instantly disappears. I’m in my own little suction cup of silence, until I turn on the tunes, at which point I can feel the bass buzzing through...
Bass response is on par with headphones in this price range. The Knife's "Silent Shout," which has tremendous low end, can be played at maximum volume without serious distortion. Occasionally, I heard the synth drum hits distort slightly, but only at the very highest level, and even this was minor. At normal-to-loud listening levels, the Aviator has no problem reproducing heavy bass, but the treble can often be too bright and intense. Ironically, on Jay-Z's "99 Problems", this is one problem that...
You may have noticed that the Navigator's box has the phrase "Supreme Sound" on it. As we touched on earlier, Skullcandy's been using this as a motto to highlight its focus on better audio quality -- and not just making fashionable headgear. That in mind, we're happy to report that the cans sound solid for the price point. The voicing is expectedly on the slightly muddy side of things with a very narrow soundstage, but the tonality is mostly smooth (read: not extremely harsh or fatiguing). Better...

It’s fair to say that some were initially worried when Skullcandy became a publicly traded company – fearing they would focus on profit margins instead of the form and function of product. Yet, since going public, Skullcandy has stayed the course in progressing the industry by creating mobile art with high-end sound; and the freshly released Cassette stands as a testament.

Problem: You’re plagued with odd shaped ear canals that aren’t perfectly round (don’t worry, it turns out we all are). If you’re using standard buds, it’s like shoving a circular peg into a square hole. Solution: Off-axis technology born out of our responsibility to make something that fits your oval ear canals. It provides an angled port into your ear, optimizing comfort, stability, acoustic performance and driver size; exactly like putting an oval peg into an oval hole.
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.
If your plan is to use the SLYR with a PS3 or Xbox 360 console, however, you need to first take a look at the way you have your console(s) set up. The SLYR uses pass-thru RCA audio connectors to piggyback onto the audio connections between your PS3 or Xbox 360 and your television. This is fine... if you actually use normal stereo audio connectors (RCA) to connect your console(s) sound. While it's true (as far as I am aware) that all versions of the PS3 and Xbox 360 include cables that offer stereo...
