Skullcandy Roc Nation Aviator Headphones (White)


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. The $150 on-ear headphones are among the priciest...

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 Aviators are light on bass and may not satisfy those expecting thumping sound.

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 Roc Nation Aviator Review


SkullCandy Roc Nation Aviator mixes style and quality for an unparalleled experience.

The Roc Nation Aviator headphones by SkullCandy come in four classy styles: Brown, Black, White and Silver. Once you put a pair of these on, you may not want to take them off. The audio output mixes nicely compared to most competitors, and like most...

The SkullCandy Roc Nation Aviator's construction is just above mediocre. They look and feel very nice but feel a little cheap

While the SkullCandy Roc Nation Aviator headphones deliver a lot of sleek style and performance, they're definitely not made for heavy use. The in-line control is somewhat awkward and will probably not be a fan favorite. The delivered-as-promised...

SkullCandy RocNation Aviator


Just like aviator sunglasses, SkullCandy's RocNation Aviator headphones take their design cues from the equip- ment found inside a plane's cockpit. But rather than some drab, function-over-form design, these Aviators are a bright, shiny combination of...

Cool design; impressive sound

Neighbours can hear you listening at high volumes

Not just for pilots, the RocNation Aviators offer a good sound at a respectable price. But if you like listening to your music loud in public locations, it’s probably worth choosing something different to avoid the annoyed stares from strangers or...

Skullcandy Roc Nation Aviator headphones


We do some probable damage to our inner ears, in a quest to find out if Skullcandy's Roc Nation Aviator earphones is worth its upper market price-tag.

Skullcandy's Roc Nation Aviator headphone go for a pricey R1999, for which you get stylish and practical (barring the placement of the in-line controls) set of headphones, boasting really impressive sound levels and quality, as well as a truly palpable...

"Very good indeed."


I got this headphone at full price 200 bucks. While I totally agree they aren't they GREATEST pair of earphones ever, they certainly are one of the better ones. Let me get started with the fact that they sound very good, especially for rock music, as...

SUPER comfortable, great sound and build. Very classy looking headphones.

For some hip hop/rap guys out there, they may complain about the fact that the headphones have no bass, and the price doesn't seem for everybody.

IF you ever buy skullcandy,GET THESE.It seems unlike monstercable,these people actually give a damn

the sound is good as the damn xb500,just less bass,which is ACTUALLY pretty good once your fatigued from the xb500 bass.

I am not fine with the design,if you can lift more then 40 pounds these things will feel fragile and you would be too scared to stretch them out.

In case you're doubting the reviews,


Ultimately, these pair of headphones are one of Skullcandy's best. Their collaboration with RocNation proved to be more successful than Square Enix and Disney. The headphone's sound quality is much more refined and clear than anything else Skullcandy...

Fits excellently and comfortably over the ear ; Sound quality is amazing, and if you know how to work EQ's from your media device/iTunes, you'll be blown away ; Design is beautiful and you'll definitely attract a lot of compliments ; Sturdy headph

As Skullcandy is famous for, the bass isn't as 'there' as some people may want ; It was a little steep, but entirely worth it ; You have to cautious with the sides of the headphones so you don't scratch the (respective) color plating

They didn't last a month


Don't buy them.. they sound good when they work, but the build quality is terrible.. I'm sticking with Shure or Sennheiser, heck, even Sony has a better build quality

They lasted a month

This is the second pair of aviators I'm returning for the exact same defect.. the little button stops working

Consumer review by:

"Expensive, uncomfortable, poor quality bad cust service"


Pretty good sound, yet a little uncomfortable, while they worked. I used them 4 or 5 times and stored them in their pouch. Then the little volume, track, mute (iPod headphone copy) button ceased working.. big deal, right? well, the wouldn't have sound...

Good sound

Expensive, uncomfortable, poor quality, poor customer service, RMA will only give you points to buy yet another skullcandy product, not your money back.

"Way better than Beats and really good value."


Excellent sound. Very natural, detailed, and fun.

Somewhat weak bass, but that's only with lower quality tracks. Using Spotify on HQ settings (320kbps OGG), the bass is perfect. Punchy and just right.
