I'd be lying if I said I wasn't curious to check them out.

okay! they have a seperate subwoofer (battery powered) which is actually smart so it minimized over-bass muddling. maybe skullcandy is getting serious. it says the recommended use is making your ears bleed...

I will preface this by saying that I do work for Skullcandy, but I think this is one of our best outings since our acoustics team started last July. 

 

Also, the bleeding ears is fun marketing speak, but these headphones may actually be better for bassheads than previous offerings.  The "subwoofer" increases bass sensation through tactile vibration, and will allow a basshead to get their fix at a much lower sound pressure level.

I'm curious, is this vibration system more tamed/realistic than the Skullcrushers? Those vibrated at every hit of the bass, but will these be more controlled, or is it similar? For me the worst thing about the Skullcrushers was that, yes it vibrated, but it didn't have the bass body to substantiate that vibration, making the already fake sensation even less believable. Does this headphone take into account that not every thump of the bass constitues a feeling?

The Aviators are supposed to be decent. There are a lot of other options in that price range, though.

I thought they were really comfortable myself. I was tempted to buy them purely because they were so comfy.

So anyone taken the plunge yet? 

 

I bought some Denon D2000's so I think I'm set for a while but I'd like to hear the impressions about these.

     I really like my pair. They are probably one of the funnest pair of headphones I've ever owned, and actually sound impressive even without the bass. After i burned both the Rex 40 and sensation drivers they have a very warm sound (typical for skullcandy), the bass will shake your face when all the way turned up and at only 100$ its a steal. There's very little sound leakage at max volume and distortion free. Lows are obviously pretty intense, mids can sound a little muffled at times but a clean, crisp sound always and the highs are minimal, my only regret.
