Video Review: The Skullcandy Aviator Headphones with Microphone for iPhone/iPad

aviator_3-4_black_1I don’t have a lot of experience with Skullcandy headphones. Honestly, I’ve always thought they looked a bit cheap. I was pleasantly surprised to see how nice the Aviators looked. A very classic, old-school design. Very clean, and great fit on the ears. You can actually see me using these cans in our last YTR Hangout.

Now…

Do they sound as good as they look?

Bowers & Wilkins P3 Headphones: Compromise without Compromise

As much as we love our Bowers & Wilkins P5 headphones, I realized 2 things after doing my original review:

1. Though at $299 we felt that the P5 was a bargain, that price point may still be a bit high for folks on a budget who still want to experience Bowers & Wilkins audio.

And…

2. While the P5 headphones are quite compact, many consumers are still looking for headphones that are more portable.

Now on the surface, B&W’s C5 in-ear headphones seem like the perfect solution–featuring a lower price ($179.95) as well as a much smaller in-ear form-factor; but the simple truth is that while the C5′s are a fantastic in-ear audio solution, some folks simply prefer on-ear or over-the-ear models. So what did Bowers & Wilkins do? What they always do–they outdid themselves. Read on to learn why the P3 headphones are the perfect compromise…without having to compromise.

We’re always on the lookout for a good pair of in-ear headphones and the folks at Urbanears have piqued our curiosity with the Medis. Along with looking incredibly cool (and coming in 12 different colors), they pack some impressive tech.

Bowers & Wilkins P5 Headphones: Portable Perfection

If you read the article I posted on Wednesday, you already know how much I was looking forward to the arrival of these headphones and how I shamed myself in the process; what you don’t know is how I actually felt about them once they arrived. It’s like going to see that movie that all of your friends loved and insist you will love as well; what could possibly live up to that kind of hype? Wasn’t I just setting myself up for disappointment? If the title of the article hasn’t already given it away, the answer is a resounding NO–the Bowers & Wilkins P5 noise-isolating headphones are the real deal.

The first thing you’ll notice about the P5′s is the gorgeous design. In fact, they looked so good sitting in the matte-black-finish box that they came in, I had a difficult time bringing myself to take them out–so I didn’t. I literally spent my first few hours after their arrival parading around my house with a pair of beautiful headphones that I refused to put on. When I finally DID remove them from the box, I felt like I was holding a piece of functional art in my hands.

WARNING: Putting On a Pair of Bowers & Wilkins P5 Headphones May Result in Never Taking Them Off

Thankfully, it’s not very often that I sit outside and wait for the UPS truck to arrive; I’d like to think that I have a bit more going for me than that. I’d like to think that. Sadly, eagerness won out over ego as I found myself sitting outside around the exact time my UPS deliveries usually arrive. What could possibly cause me to behave in such a way–to ignore every lesson I ever learned about the rewards of playing it cool? Anyone who’s been to an Apple Store recently will know the answer; it’s sitting on a table attached to all of the iPhones and iPods: It’s the Bowers & Wilkins P5 Headphones. If you never thought tech could be sexy, think again…and it’s more than just the way they look; it’s the way they sound and feel. My UPS Driver knows my shame–and come Friday, you will too. Stay Tuned…
