Skullcandy Lowrider portable headphones

by paulb on November 24, 2011

When you think about small and portable on ear headphones, Skull candy may not be the first brand that pops to mind – if at all. The brand is known for their big and flashy headphones, though they do have Skullcandy Lowrider, a line designed with portability specifically in mind.

Portable headphones built for mobile users

Skullcandy Lowrider headphones are on ear headphones that can be folded when not in use. These are equipped with a ultra-portable fold-up headband, so when folded, they are small enough to fit in a travel pouch to be tucked away in your bag. These Skullcandy headphones are also much sleeker than the brand’s other lines like Hesh and Skullcrusher. Big headsets aren’t everybody’s thing, and if you like the sleek look better, then the Lowrider should be a good choice for you.

These headphones also feature a 90 degree swivel on the speakers so you can listen to something else while your music plays on in your other ear.

Good sound quality

Compared to the Hesh line, Lowrider features smaller 40mm speakers, though they still output great sound quality with a frequency response in the range of 18 to 20KHz. This frequency range basically means that the Skullcandy Lowrider produces great bass, along with other mid and high range sounds within the human hearing range. Even with relatively small speakers, it produces high volume output.

Comfort and Designs

The Lowrider is made with a high quality plastic frame and covered with leather for comfortable use. These headphones come in a wide variety of colours and designs so you have a lot of options. Whether you like your headphones in plain colours, or in Rasta and other colour combos, then you should be able to find one that suits your tastes. Also, some Lowrider headphones are made specifically for gaming use and are equipped with microphones.

The Skullcandy Lowrider is affordable, as it’s pretty much entry level on ear headphones. This line of Skullcandy headphones is portable, but still packs a punch comparable to its bigger brothers. If you’re in the market for a good set of reasonably low priced headphones, then the Lowrider is the best way to go.
