Skullcandy Edit

Alongside shoes, another one of my obsessions is headphones. I used to have one in-ear earphones, which I wore all the time, but over the last few months, I've received a lot more, and many of them have been large, over-ear, headphones, which I definitely prefer. They look a lot cooler and I find the sound quality to be much better.


I was invited down to the Hoxton Gallery a few weeks ago to have a look at some of their cool headphones and designs. I think Skullcandy is one of the few major headphones company that I don't have, but my brother is a massive fan so I've heard great things about them. I was impressed with all the headphones I saw: not only did they look fantastic, but I got to listen to the sound quality and it is amazing.


The main reason for heading down was to check out the new Aviator Edit, which lets users customise their own headphones from the Skullcandy website. You're able to customise the colour of everything from the headphones and frame, to the caps and cord, meaning that there are endless colour combinations, so that what you get is really unique and personalised. You can also share your online creations via social media.
I had such a fun time sitting down and playing around with all the colours, knowing that when I got them, they'd be truly unique.



They took about two weeks to come and I loved them. While customising my headphones, I decided to go classic, so most of them are grey and black. I then added a pop of colour with the red when it came to the detailing of the cord. I love how they came out: the red and dark colours went perfectly together.


The sound quality really is amazing. Nothing leaks out while listening to them and very little leaks in while you're out and about.
They're also really comfortable. The large padded ear cups aren't too heavy so you can wear them all day with no discomfort. Not to mention they look really cool on.



Have you tried Skullcandy headphones?

I seriously wish that the world had never gone away from headphones - there's nothing worse than having to listen to someone else's music because their earphones leak sound! Plus, headphones are way more comfortable. I've been looking at a pair of Skull Candy headphones for a while, but I had no idea you could customise them. I love the way yours turned out, and I may just have to design my own!

I used to have a pair of Skullcandy headphones but they actually snapped in half and now I'm a bit put off. Pretty happy with my beats at the moment, but your design is really cool
