Forget your inner-ear headphones that constantly fall out, feel uncomfortable and generally provide more sound quality for the person sitting next to you – it’s all about on-ear or over-ear headphones, and we’re loving the offerings from Skullcandy.
Utah based brand Skullcandy produce the coolest music listening gear around, boasting a host of special ranges including an NBA player series and various artist collaborations. Drawing much of their inspiration from hip-hop culture it’s no surprise that one of their stand-out collaborations comes from Snoop Dog, whose intricately patterned Skullcrushers are bound to turn heads. Complete with 30mm neodymium magnetic speakers and mini-sub woofers, the headphones allow listeners to take the Snoop bassline wherever they go.
If Snoop headphones aren’t quite your thing then the newly re-styled classic Lowriders are a slightly more subtle option for stylish head gear. Available now, the new Lowrider has shed its plastic surface for a matt satin texture skin, coming in coral, blue, purple, white and yellow these headphones add a pop of colour to any outfit. With plush ear pillows, nylon cable and an integrated microphone that’s compatible with iPhone and Blackberry the Lowrider is a on-ear headphone for the ultimate sound experience.
Just which colour to choose? If you’re as spoilt for choice as we are then take a look at the full Skullcandy range here.
