Skullcandy is a brainchild of the notorious action sports product mastermind and a non conformer Rick Alden. Once when he was hauling towards the top of the Park city peak for a powder run, he literally had to yank the ear buds from the music player so as to be able to answer his phone. That is exactly when a fairly simple but a very powerful idea hit on him. What if there could be headphones that could easily switch from the music to the calls? And what if these headphones worked as good as they looked? This very idea happened to be the bedrock on which the Skullcandy was built on.
Rick then threw himself into full force and was dedicatedly working to turn this dream into reality. It was his get it done at all costs attitude that worked in his favor. This attracted a crore of like minded mavericks who didn’t really want to play by the rules or be bothered about the insurmountable odds that stacked against them. The entire team was simply hell bend on turning the headphone game on the head and wished to shake some sense into the tired industry that was still stuck in the monochromatic ways. All the efforts taken by Rick and his team indeed worked very well.
In the sea of white and black, Skullcandy became a groundswell of the style and colors that the entire world was long waiting for. The commitment of the Skullcandy to both self expression and the counter culture scratched the audio itch of the underdogs that nobody had ever been able to reach. Skullcandy’s team went on to team up with the kindred pioneers and the risk takers who were living at the full volume like the DJs, artists and athletes. These were very far from the mainstream and the main stage. The street cred of the brand grew farther and farther until it acquired a secure place on the store shelves as well as the heads of the trailblazers and the trend setters across the globe.
At present, Skullcandy is a global brand that has pushed the boundaries far and wide by bringing the noise that the world loves. It has been successful in modernizing the audio and leveled the playing field by making the high quality sound affordable, stylish and extremely attainable.
The headphones from the Skullcandy have been designed to be able to used and abused and not simply be put on the shelves in a fancy case.

It is indeed challenging the human potential by the very power of music. The goal of the brand is simple that is to innovate and the solve the real problems by democratizing the incredible audio experience with both style and quality.
