Skullcandy Headphones Release Date Announced: Roc Nation Aviator Style Headphones By Jay-Z

May 17, 2010, By Intermaggio

Looks like Jay-Z wants to be in your life more than just your sunglasses. Roc Nation and Skullcandy just recently announced their partnership to create the Roc Nation Aviator- a set of headphones so badass that they come with their own custom plush carrying case, and we’ve got all the dirty details.

First off, let’s talk looks. These things were inspired by aviator style sunglasses, and it’s not hard to see the resemblance:

That being said, the “glass” parts of the headphones are actually made of a polycarbonate- meaning that they’ll take a decent beating, so you don’t need to worry too much about these guys scratching easily.

The standard 3.5mm headphone jack will be gold plated, giving the sound a very slight boost in quality, while making the phone 15% more gangsta. But seriously- these are some nice headphones. Here’s a few more specs, courtesy of Roc Nation:

  • Speaker Diameter: 40mm
  • Driver Type: Mylar
  • Magnet Type: Neodynium
  • Frequency Response: 20-20k Hz
  • Impedence: 33 ohms
  • Nominal Input Power: 100mW
  • Cable Type: Nylon Braided
  • Cable Length: 1.3m

The Roc Nation Aviator will be released June 2010 at an undetermined price. So tell us- how much would YOU pay for these bad boys?
