What with the abundance of in-your-face Skullcandy headphones, it's easy to assume that the company has the corner on the market for over-the-top earphones. However, there are competitors out there with an eye on young, extreme, sports-loving types, and Aerial7 is among them. The company's $80 Tank headphones' splashy design and chunky, plastic construction are a testament to this. Though the headphones offer a couple of compelling features, we're not keen on the uncomfortable fit and muffled sound. Still, the target audience may be willing to overlook these gripes.
The Aerial7 Tank headphones and their array of color options are sure to turn a few heads. The seven choices range from the relatively mild all-black Midnight version to the undeniably loud Graffiti to the somewhat cutesy Hello Kitty. In fact, this last model is surprisingly subdued for Hello Kitty tech, with a black, red, and white color scheme and tiny HK heads smattered all over the earcup padding. We can see it appealing to certain young, female DJs.
