First Look: Skullcandy's slick Navigator headphones

0:56 /

New $99 on-ear model has strong design, decent but not great sound.

-Hi, I'm David Carnoy, executive editor for cnet.com and I'm here with the Skullcandy Navigator headphones. I didn't like their design. They seem well built. That will fold up into a smaller form factor. They come with a very simple carrying pouch. These are a $100 headphone. I would say the sound is decent, not great. They do have a lot of base. There's a weird little hole in the base. It's hard to say what's going on there, but we did like the headphone. We just didn't quite love it, but still not a bad headphone for $100. It does come with an inline remote and microphone, and it is very nicely styled. In the end, I would say this is one of the better Skullcandy headphones I've tested. They are comfortable. And I said, they do have a nice design. I'm David Carnoy with the Skullcandy Navigator headphones. Thanks for watching.
