Skullcandy Aviator Blue/Black Headphones Headset S6AVFM-289 with/Mic1 wire
Overpriced fads that don't even come close to any of the reputable companies that make audiophile-graded headphones (even in their price brackets). I really hate skullcandy and beats.
@adoniteINK Go home hipster, you're drunk.
over priced garbage, no base and most songs just sound horrible. Hey they look pretty though
Thats bullshit, I have a pair and even Iron Maiden sounds fabulous on them. Piss off
honestly some of the best headphones for their price both style wise and sound quality
I listen to every genre of music on mine and they all sound phenomenal. I then tested the newest beats studios and was amazed how unspectacular they were compared to the sound quality of the aviators. Of course there is way more bass but the aviators sound much more natural and clear. They are really comfortable too. If any of you get a chance to test them before buying them, do it, and compare them to beats/any other brand, and make an informed decision yourself.
What a lot of people don't like about the Aviator, is that they are an accurate sounding headphone. They don't have a fake, boosted bass - and that is what a lot of people think headphones are supposed to sound like. The other problem is that they sound like the signal you are feeding them - they don't try to make low-bitrate MP3's sound wonderful.
Garbage in - Garbage out. That's how a truly good headphone is. If these sound terrible to you, it's probably not the headphones that are at fault.
