I'm one of those people who (especially now that times are tougher) researches the things I get before I buy them. I wandered the internet and looked around for headphones that I would be proud to wear, and would sound great. I came up with a couple choices in addition to these: the V-Moda Crossfades, Bowers & Wilkins P5's, and the Beats by Dre.
What initially attracted me to the Aviators was the look--I was really hoping the sound quality would be good so I could get 'em. They don't disappoint. I went down to the Apple store, and tested the Crossfades (toooo warm of a sound and waaay too much bass. They have an amplifier in them, and I didn't like it. The P5's by B&W sounded good, if not a little underpowered. And really, I wanted something that covered my ears, not just sat on them. The Beats by Dre sounded good, better than the P5's on some songs, and much worse on others. The Aviators just sounded GOOD. In a direct comparison with the Beats and the P5's, I found that I loved everything about them. They sound clear, not muffled, and have a nice mix between bright and warm.
In a nutshell? This is my first set of cans. I've been using in-ear headphones forever, and now was the time to upgrade. I am very happy with my purchase, and my guess is that you would be, too.
Testing them out with my music over the last few weeks, I realized these are some great cans for the $150 price tag. I love the balanced approach to sound - the realization that music includes highs and mids AS WELL AS bass (I'm looking at you, Dr. Dre!) I love all kinds of music, so that balanced approach comes in handy when I'm listening to classical, jazz, salsa, doo-wop, r&b, etc. After the pleasant surprise of how these beauties sound, I fell in love with all the thoughtful touches that make up the whole package - the folding cups, the soft carrying case, and most of all, the subtle styling that says "Skullcandy has arrived." Someone, either RocNation, Skullcandy designers, maybe even JayZee himself - realized that subtlety can speak volumes. The red RocNation liner inside the carrying case, the (barely there) skull imprints on the case, the small gold skull accents on the comfortable headphone band, well done! Something else that represents welcome attention to detail - the nylon wrapped ear wire that is detachable. These days a detachable ear wire is a "must have" in any set of cans priced over $100. The nylon wrapping reduces tangling and improves durability. Of course, if the ear wire does become damaged, you can get that replaced without buying a whole new set of cans. Also, they have soft padding on the headband and memory foam in the cups.Read more ›
First, there's the look. These cans look really good, much better than the picture on the computer screen. It's very classy and retro. The gold trim is very cool, and the shells are see-through. I've gotten many compliments on them by many strangers, both male and female (I live in New York City, so I see lots of strangers, some stranger than others). I was in Best Buy, ready to buy the same-priced Bose AE2 headphones, when I saw these. I personally think the brown/gold is the best-looking of the trio, but the black/silver are also nice. My only complaint is that sometimes the whole thing feels a little flimsy. They are light which is great, but I hope they aren't fragile. Also, the in-line mic, as convenient as it is, looks cheap, but only when looking at it close up.
Sound: Well, I was in Best Buy because I was replacing a pair of Bose AE2 that had been stolen. Sad face. I actually think these headphones sound better than the Bose. Wha?? I know. There is more bass from the Aviators, and the treble sounds less brash. Comparing them to the Dre Beats Solo, I found that the Dre Beats still had better bass. But those are more expensive and are On-Ear phones, and I wanted Around-the-Ear. The only drawback is that the cups don't block out as much as sound as the Bose do. I spend a lot of time on the subway and walking along noisy city streets. The Bose were amazing in blocking out a lot of that sound - I would sometimes wear them without any music playing, just to quiet things. The Aviators are OK.
Comfort: Some reviewers say that they can wear these for hours and there's no problem.Read more ›
