Audiophiles: Ugh, why do all kids wear Skullcandies, do they just go for the looks and not the sound quality?
 
Aviators come out, with excellent sound quality from what I've heard.
 
Audiophiles: OMG I cant be seen wearing that ridiculous brand name & logo!!!

Skullcandy used to be the big thing before beats. I think they're so famous because there's so many designs and colors. The aviators are probably out of their price range and they don't think they look too good.

If Skullcandy comes out with a headphone that sounds good, I'm interested. I don't care about brands, I care about good sound. If it sounds good, I'll buy it and recommend it. Same goes for Bose and Monster. Make a good headphone and you'll be praised for it.

I'd rather have my grado 125i's for the same price then those aviators anyday. Same goes with m50's, sennheisers and everything in between.

skullcandy was a bottom of the barrel snowboarding label before they made headphones so I find it ridiculous that everyone thinks they are like top tier audio quality when a Skullcandy bored would snap in half as the meer sight of a grind. not to mention that the "color scheme" as some would call it is about the equivalent to a 70's abstract art piece that the artist suffered a massive brain aneurysm and dropped his pain everywhere and some ones like" WOW THAT'S REALLY ABSTRACT AND UGLY, IT MUST BE WORTH SOMETHING!!!!"

Unfortunately, I'll be stuck with a pair of skullcandy earbuds for a while, but since I am not yet used to audiophile-level headphones, I won't be suffering too much... 
 
The new Aviators look nice, but I don't think that I'll ever be reeled in again- I'll stick with a more reliable company, with the advice of head-fi, of course.

Welcome to head-fi! And fear not, you'll be taking out a loan soon enough for some proper headphones. And your wallet will cry.

They are right about the wallet thing it will suffer greatly. I just bought what could be considered midrange phones and spent over $200 so prepare for ramen once you hear good phones.
