Skullcandy was established in 2003 by Rick Alden who came up with the brand whilst on a chairlift listening to music. Skullcandy has become one of the world’s most distinct audio brands by bringing splashes of colour, vibrant character and performance to an otherwise grey world of headphones.
With their roots coming from the action sports scenes of Utah, Skullcandy have led the way in revolutionizing the audio arena by making headphones, earbuds and other audio products that possess distinctive style and outstanding performance.
Products such as the Roc Nation Aviator headphones are award winning whilst the FIX earbuds are designed for action sports and feature evolutionary fitting so they don’t fall out when you’re sessioning the park.
American playwright Tennessee Williams once said that “in memory everything seems to happen to music” and with Skullcandy you can bring your music to the mountain. The fusion of audio and action sports is what Skullcandy is all about and their bold colours and loud patterns are one of a kind. With fully customisable bright designs they’re a little bit more exciting than those white headphones you get with your iPod and the sound quality is way better.
Skullcandy sponsor a selection of the world’s finest athletes, musicians and artists. Their team roster reads like a who’s who list of modern snowboarding legends, rocking out to music down the slopes we have Danny Kass, Devun Walsh, Kazu Kokubu, Bode Merril and Eero Ettala. They also sponsor models such as Kate Upton and bands like the Hives.
