Skullcandy is proud to announce the Uprock headphone,
the newest initiate to its battle-ready line. This
musical burn unit brags twin 40mm drivers,
tangle-proof flat cables and a mixed-material
composition sturdy enough to deal your beats and
withstand opposing jerks, drops and hustle
Sporting twin 40mm ear exciters, tangle-free flat cable, and a mixed material finish for extra machismo, the Skullcandy Uprock boasts the street cred of a Brooklyn street gang.
Pete Kelly, Director of design says
"Wrapping the Uprock speakers is a fresh take on our "basic" offering. Rather than follow the industry trend of layering on complexity for percieved value, I decided on a clean and refined form that is much more difficult to achieve while still looking rich. Perfectly comfortable for daily use, the uprock has a modern feel, ergonomic functionality and unsurpassed sound for price."
We’ve made a move, since our disruptive entrée into personal audio, from the underground to the panopticon. The view is different but the vanguard vision remains the same. Skullcandy’s 2011 product mix features our most innovative curations yet.
We're as passionate as ever about innovation and the convergence of premium sound and aesthetic perfection.
Skullcandy's product line-up is our way of giving a friendly nudge to the pace of evolution. Hope you enjoy the ride.

I would recommend these to anyone that wants to upgrade from annoying earplugs to something more comfortable, more sophisticated and with a touch of personality. I love my new headphones, so will you.
The sound quality is also excellent, with booming bass and little loss of the lower tones or vocals. Their may be some outside noice leakage though, but this is to be expected on a product with this lower price range, so you may want to take care when you are secretly listening to the dulcet tones of Justin Beiber.
And with the company's reputation of standing by thier products, you don't have to fear and audio breakdown. If you keep your reciept the company will replace any defective product normally for the rest of your life. (In the UK this may be limited to two years, which is still pretty good). And if you destroy your headphones during a skateboarding accident, the fine people at SkullCandy will still give you a 50% refund.
Oh, did I mention that these headphones will give you some street-cred as well. Yes, thanks to their awesome design and looks you won't feel like an old man listening to your music (though I am not sure this works for someone like me).
Two things I would be aware of before you sign up. Firstly, they are a tight fit. The plastic headband really does clamp them in place but they remain comfortable even after a couple of hours listening. Some people don't like the 'bolted on' feel and if so they are not for you.
Second thing, the 'ratchet' mechanism for adjustment of the headband is fairly sturdy BUT if you try and adjust them under tension i.e whilst wearing them it is likely to lock up. This can involve a bit of to-ing and fro-ing to get the fit right but its a small price to pay compared to replacing the 3 bits you'll likely end up with if you don't.
