0 Is this guide helpful? 1 0 Report
 
Since the invention of portable audio devices, headphones have been a necessity. Headphones plug into an audio device so that the sound from the device comes through the headphones. Some audio devices do not have their own internal speakers and, therefore, require headphones in order to hear the sound. Others have speakers, but out in public a person may prefer using headphones both to hear their music better above the sound of others, and to be polite and keep their music to themselves. Skullcandy is a maker of several different types of headphones, including over-ear headphones, ear buds, and on-ear headphones. Knowing the different styles of headphones and the top rated headphones can help a person make an informed buying decision and know they are getting the best quality for their needs.

Skullcandy Roc Nation Aviator headphones are  over-ear headphones. This means they have a large circular pad that completely surrounds the ear. This is ideal for keeping out external noise. The Skullcandy Roc Nation Aviator headphones have a retro design, and feature an adjustable leather headband. Instead of cables coming out of each earpiece, the Skullcandy Roc Nation Aviator headphones have a cable coming from only one side of the headphones, resulting in less tangling of the headphone cord. On the headphone cord is a remote control for switching the music, playing and pausing, and volume control on some brands of smartphone, and a microphone for using the headphones when making calls. CNET notes that the Skullcandy Roc Nation Aviator headphones have a unique design and exceptional sound quality.
