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.

Eye candy from Skullcandy

The Skullcandy Navigator won't bathe your ears in melodious bliss, but for $99.95, you could do far worse. Relatively comfortable and visually striking, these headphones are likely to please low-maintenance buyers. The left and right speakers don't...

Style over Substance


If these headphones sounded half as good as they look, Skullcandy would have a real winner. The problem is that the sound is very hollow. I'm not audiophile but the lack of sound quality is evident from the first time you plug these in. I listen to all...

What I was looking for at a decent price


Got these for a birthday gift for my 10 year old son. He asked for headphones but I was skeptical about buying $150 or more set of Beats By Dre or even the higher/better model of skull candy headphones. My son LOVES the style and look of the head...

Nice look and the ease of use. Durable

Good value, quality product!


I have found these headphones to be great for watching Netflix while I'm traveling. My only complaint is that they could be a little more comfortable. Perhaps it's because I have a funny shaped head, but when I open these wide enough to accommodate my...

Great fit


This is an excellent product for people who can't use earbuds like me. It's highly recommended.

Nice choice for my child


Bought this for my 10 yo son to use with his I-Pad, he doesn't like earbuds. These fit well for him which isn't the case with many "full size" headphones with a smaller head. The sound is good without spending a whole lot more than I wanted to. He can...

Fits well
