PARK CITY, Utah, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Skullcandy, Inc. (Nasdaq:
SKUL), a high-growth, performance lifestyle audio brand has truly pioneered
the advancement of design and performance with its highly-anticipated Crusher
headphone launching today at select retailers nationwide. The brand unveiled a
video on its homepage this morning featuring Kevin Durant and Wale
experiencing the revolutionary bass sensation that only the Crusher can
Completely redesigned and re-engineered by Skullcandy's in-house product
development team, the Crusher offers a unique bass sensory experience derived
from "dual driver" technology. Powered Sensation55™ drivers housed in each
earcup deliver Attacking Bass while Supreme Sound is supplied via separate
custom REX40™ drivers. The proprietary Sensation55™ drivers provide more than
bass you can hear; they deliver bass you can feel. A slider located on the
left earcup grants the listener the ability to adjust the sensation levels to
his/her preference or playlist. Users can even turn the bass off completely
and still enjoy the REX40™ driver's premium acoustics, minus the powered bass
The Crusher is designed with premium materials and is engineered to emphasize
fit, comfort and durability. The headphone features a flexible headband, an
amplifier and a battery in the ear cup to drive the level-adjustable
subwoofer, removable/replaceable cables and collapsible earcups for easy
stashing with satin travel bag. The Crusher is also equipped with an auto
on/off smart circuit that senses when music has stopped playing and turns off
the amp automatically. This greatly improves battery life and removes the need
for a power switch.
"The Crusher doesn't just play music, it delivers a complete audio experience
that you can feel from the moment you put it on," said Hoby Darling, CEO of
Skullcandy. "This headphone replicates that live concert feeling. Pair this
sensory experience with an accessible price point and a style that's
unmistakably Skullcandy and you've got the Crusher. Don't take my word for it
though… You really have to feel it to believe it."
The Skullcandy Crusher launches at retail today. For more information about
Crusher and to watch Kevin Durant, Wale and the rest of the Skullcandy family
