Skullcandy Navigator


Skullcandy makes some very popular headphones, but I can't say I'm a huge fan of them -- I've always found them a bit "style over substance." But when the company sent me its new Navigator headphones, I was hoping they'd be different, and I'd finally...

The relatively compact Skullcandy Navigator on-ear headphones have a slick retro-future design, offer a comfortable fit with decent sound for $99 headphones, and their detachable cord has an Apple friendly inline remote/microphone.

Some headphones in this price range sound better; some of the inline remote features won't work with non-iOS devices.

While they don't quite measure up performance-wise to some competing models in this price range, the Skullcandy Navigators score points with their eye-catching design and comfortable fit.

Skullcandy Navigator


Skullcandy headphones often seem like a victory of style over substance, but the company continues to improve the audio performance of its lineup. With the Navigator, we have a budget-friendly pair that finally offers quality, clean sound to match the...

Quality audio performance, with distortion-free deep bass response at high volumes. Cool design emulates Aviator sunglasses, includes inline microphone and remote for phone calls and controlling playback. Detachable cable adds value

On-ear design leaks audio to those nearby. Drawstring carrying pouch sheds black felt particles—lots of them

Skullcandy's Navigator headphones meld cool style with distortion-free deep bass and a budget-friendly price tag.

Stylish headphones on a budget


I was looking for headphones to wear while I write code. I really didn't need noise cancelling or anything super fancy. I actually want to hear if someone tries to talk to me. I don't like over-ear headphones. They usually push too hard on my head. I...
