We’re like proud parents about our latest products, and are absolutely stoked on the release of Crusher coming April 1st. The newest headphone addition to the Skullcandy fam is our biggest headphone to date so we can’t help but want to share what others have been saying about our bass baby.
“How many headphones count a threat to “make your eyeballs bleed” as a virtue? At least one, the Skullcandy Crusher, which uses an unusual speaker technology to generate vibrations that are perceived as powerful bass notes. The Crushers are an over-the-ear enclosed headset, which both accentuates the bass vibrations and muffles what mass transit seatmates are likely to hear.”
“Over the years, our ears have been treated (or tormented, depending on perspective) to a variety of rumbles from a multitude of wub-wub headphones. Typically, it's the gaming headphone sector that gets first dibs, but Skullcandy's Crusher is aiming to hit a few more targets. We had a chance to listen to a production version of the impending cans—slated to ship in March for $99 in black, white and red hues—and we were pleasantly surprised with what we heard. Er, felt.

Amazingly, the sensation was actually enjoyable—and moreover, accurate.”

“Rather than trying to fake a bunch of bass with digital signal processing, the Crushers use an individually powered second driver to trigger a proprietary (and rather hush-hush) vibration system. Even in the sub-optimal audio testing environment that is the parking lot outside of CES, we all walked away pretty impressed.”
“Skullcandy was once known for its outlandish, affordable, mediocre sounding headphones. But that was then. These days, Skullcandy's higher-end headphones actually do sound good for the price. And we wouldn't be surprised to hear Skullcandy's latest and greatest, comfortable-looking over-ear headphones pack a solid punch of audio for the price. The Crusher are Skullcandy's new mainstream designed $100 pair of plastic constructed, closed back cans. But these aren't just another pair of headphones, because the Crusher features an independent vibrating driver which is supposed to deliver that extra bit of THUMP right beside the 40mm speaker driver in both ear cups. Much like a tweeter and woofer setup, but not quite…”
