Now Why Didn't Bose Think of That
Skullcandy seems to have fixed a couple issues I've had with headphones for years. Nothing sucks more than spending a couple hundred dollars on a nice sounding pair and at some point, usually after the warranty runs out, the headphone cable pinches and the wire breaks rendering my toy unusable. The Skullcandy Aviator had a simple solution to that by putting a headphone jack on the unit so a pinched cable problem is just that -- a cable problem. I can go to any electronics store and buy another cable. Which brings me to the second problem this innovative design idea solves. Cables that are not long enough. Sure, I can buy some extender but with the Aviator, I just buy a longer cable. And oh, by the way, these sound better (to me at least) than all models I tried except for a $300 Sony. The Skullycandy Aviator sells for $138 at Best Buy.
