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.

Skullcandy Navigator

 

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...

Great over ear headphones to travel with

 

I needed over the ear headphones. These are comfortable, headband collapses and doesn't push down (as does Bose), and reproduces sound accurately. The are light and easy to pack in a carry-on.

Comfortable, excellent sound

 

For this price range, these are the most comfortable and best sounding head phones I could find. They look sharp, and seem to be high quality. No problems with them at all.
