Skullcandy Vandal iPhone speaker dock

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on June 26th, 2011

Skullcandy has a new iPhone dock, all decked out in gold and black veneer. Inside of this retro-looking dock there are 80mm woofers and 19mm tweeters, with a total output of 21 watts. That’s pretty decent for a dock.

Now for the bad news. That would be the price of $179.99. I guess you are paying for the style here more than anything else. Who’s interested at that price?

Skullcandy releases wood-grain earbuds

Skullcandy releases wood-grain earbudsGadgets and wood have an on-again off-again relationship. Gadget makers love, whether it’s a flash drive, or a laptop case, or even headphones. Now Skullcandy has created some fancy wooden earbuds.

The wood grain earbuds will run you $99. The phones work with all your favorite music delivery devices. Some users say that using wood in earphones enhances the sound. Which likely explains the price. We aren’t sure how far this wood trend is going to go, or if it really enhances something like earbuds enough to justify the price, but what do you think? Are they worth it?


Skullcandy Metallica headphones

Skullcandy Metallica headphonesSkullcandy and Metallica have teamed up in order to commemorate the band’s ninth studio album called Death Magnetic. Skullcandy has released special edition Metallica Hesh and Metallica Lowrider models. Great way to show your love for the the most hardcore, music download hating band ever.

“Releasing Death Magnetic is another milestone for us, as is our collaboration with Skullcandy for the Metallica headphones”, drones Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo. “This is a great opportunity for us to give our fans a new way of listening to our music.”

Listening to Metallica on headphones is a new way of listening? If you say so Bob. Expect to pay for the privilege, these headphones won’t be cheap. But if you absolutely worship the band go ahead and get yourself a pair.

Skullcandy Pipe iPod/iPhone dock looks like a sawed off bone

Skullcandy Pipe iPod/iPhone dock looks like a sawed off boneSkullcandy has an interesting and strange new, even somewhat biological looking iPod/iPhone dock called “Pipe”. It looks like a pipe. It also looks like a sawed off femur that’s been aged. Perfect for the coroner or surgeon that likes to have his music on hand and be reminded of his craft at the same time.

It features a clever little plus and minus button on front which I’m sure you can figure out, comes with a remote and the skull logo is on the side. Looks like it would make a good weapon too, which is a bonus. Or a baton for practicing relay races. All this can be yours for $90.

Review: Skullcandy Skullcrusher headphones

Review: Skullcandy Skullcrusher headphones
Skullcandy is known for their quality headphones. Skullcandy’s Skullcrusher headphones are not new, but I wanted to give them a try and see what all the fuss was about. They don’t have any sophisticated active noise canceling features, but still manage to drown out background noise with a nice level of bass rumbling and sheer over-powering volume. And they do it very well.

The folded headset takes up an amazingly small amount of space. They are pleasingly lightweight and portable, perfect for anyone on the go, especially if you use have a backpack. You get a vinyl protective carrying pouch, one AA battery, a 1/4″ plug adapter and a two-prong plug adapter. I really like the fact that with the included adapters, I’m covered no matter what. The cord is about 5 feet long, so you have plenty of freedom.

MacGyver MP3 watch makes MacGyver relax

MacGyver MP3 watch makes MacGyver chill
Remember MacGyver? As in Angus MacGyver, the guy who could make a bomb from your grandmothers bra, dental floss and a paper clip? The folks at Skullcandy now have a watch bearing his name. The MacGyver watch features a 5-mode audio equalizer, 3-D stereo sound, built-in voice recorder, integrated USB cable, and thumb drive to store and transfer data.

Through the magic of my crappy Photoshop skills, we can clearly see Mac before and after wearing the watch. In the before pic he’s clearly bored while rigging his latest gadget, which obviously involves an alligator clip so he can escape captivity. In the second pic he’s wearing the watch. He’s still clearly not thrilled with his latest feat of innovation, however his watch is no longer from the 80’s and so he stops to have a beer and contemplate his career, secure in the knowledge that someone finally named a watch after him. MacGyver…Stargate…And a watch. Oh yeah.


Review: Skullcandy Icons headphones

Skullcandy Icons headphones
Normally I’m not a big headphones kinda guy. I mean, I use them fairly often, but I don’t really get much enjoyment out of them as for the most part, one pair always seems pretty much like the other. So I don’t really go out of my way looking for quality and comfort. It’s been my experience that there really isn’t much room for improvement in headphone design.

I was wrong. I can admit it after listening to these headphones. When you plug a pair of Skullcandy icons in and crank up the music, the difference between these headphones and a standard pair is obvious. First, the double headband design and weight of less than 45 grams, makes for an exact fit and total comfort. You don’t even know they are on you and they don’t bother your ears. As far as sound, the 30mm audio driver really does provide absolutely crystal clear and amazing sound.
