Earlier this year, headphone line Skull Candy did the honors by stylishly debuting their newest innovative creation, The Crusher, in Las Vegas at the CES Show—and to much appraise—as well. Uniquely equipped with a redesigned and re-engineered modification, the powered Sensation55 drivers that are exceptionally included in each ear-cup not only provides the average listener the bass heavy experience they all so yearn, but along with a flexible headband and adjustable subwoofer to boot—it makes it a hot commodity for any consumer this time of year—most especially with its awesome look. SkullCandy’s CEO, Jeremy Andrus, had this to say about the line’s latest headphones in a statement released:
“The Crusher offers a truly unmatched audio experience that you can feel from the moment you put it on. The feeling generated from this headphone replicates a live concert. Crusher’s technologies like the custom Sensation 55™ and REX40™ drivers deliver undistorted, pure sound packed in a durable design construction with a look and fit that’s unmistakably Skullcandy and a price that’s completely obtainable. You really have to feel it to believe it.”
The Skullcandy Crusher officially launches at retail today, so peep a look at KD rockin’ them above, or if you want to possibly purchase ‘em, visit here. Hit the jump for a couple of flicks.
When an athlete suffers a season ending injury, or even a career threatening injury, skepticism seems to rise to an all time high. Whether if it’s the owner who is skeptical about the direction of his team in the future, whether if it’s the coach skeptical about the player not returning to previous form, or whether it’s the players fan base skeptical if its team will ever be the same again. Everyone has an opinion, and think they know what is best for the player and the team. When in all actuality, the player is the only person who has room for skepticism, since they are the one rehabbing, in the doctor’s office, in the gym, trying to get back to elite status. Peyton Manning knew all along he’d be taking a calculated risk by returning to the NFL, but with the doctor’s close watch and care, Peyton was able to return this season with skepticism on his back like a fifth wheel.
How could we ever doubt Peyton Manning? Arguably the best regular season quarterback of all time, we knew he had to get his arm strength back, but if he is healthy that will come with time. We knew (or should have known) this injury has no ill effect on one of the greatest cerebral assassins to ever step on that field, and now, that same assassin is shoving it in everyone’s face. Jim Isray, the owner of the Indianapolis Colts did have a tough decision to make, either take a risk with Peyton and win right now, or use that #1 overall pick, which you obtained on account of Peyton’s absence, and draft the future QB of the Colts. Now I’m no CEO or general manager, but the way the new collective bargaining agreement is set up, rookies aren’t guaranteed as much money coming into the draft. It’s still a pretty penny of an investment, but I believe is Isray could do it all over again; he’d bring back Peyton Manning, draft Andrew Luck and see where that takes the team. I mean waiting behind a future Hall of Fame QB didn’t hurt Aaron Rodgers too much, but who knows, perhaps Peyton wanted a change a scenery, maybe Peyton knew Isray didn’t believe in his abilities like he use to so the time was now or never.
Wale has become a fixture on the seats of ESPN’s First Take. Earlier today, he returned to his home away from home via Skype and talked to Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith (who looked mighty sleepy…ha) about Washington Nationals’ 19 year old star Bryce Harper’s success in his rookie campaign, his sneaker collection, the possibility of Tim Tebow replacing Mark Sanchez as a starter, and finally, he and Skip’s bet regarding Tebow. And after the jump, Wale takes the young’n Bryce around his favorite spots in DC, shopping for kicks, and getting a quick bite at the well-famous Ben’s Chilli Bowl all before a game.
All ya’ll Miami Heat fans can now rejoice and pinch yourselves. It’s real, really real. The first of many [promised] championships has finally come to you loyal 305 hopefuls, and in association with last night’s championship win against the OKC Thunder, Last Rights have created a tee in honor of the Heat. Follow through for a purchase link, and also take a look at this (below) message. My hat goes off to the Heat for getting the monkey off their backs.
People have been asking us to create a HEAT design for a while but we’ve been hesitant until now. We recently spent some time out in the desert working on a couple of projects for Playboy Magazine. During the trip we ended up linking with some members of a nomadic motorcycle gang who were “passing through” the area. Without knowing it, they were the ones who inspired this design. “These patches on our jackets symbolize unity, family, and the gaul to stand side by side and fight for what’s ours.”
I’m far from the sentimental type, but say what you want, last night’s appearance by the crossover king Allen Iverson at the Sixers game would leave any basketball enthusiast teary-eyed. Most recently, the former Sixers guard had resurfaced — as producer extraordinaire Swizz Beatz gave him his just due in the “Street Knock” visual, and as an appreciation to Philly making it this far in the PLAYOFFS, they brought out Allen Iverson one more time to the delight of the packed crowd at Wells Fargo Center. In an interview with ESPN Lisa Salters (under), he also expressed his desire to play again – if presented with the right opportunity — which would be a fitting way to end his career. And now that the 76ers and Celtics are all evened up a 3 apiece, can someone get A.I. to put these shoes on (dropping tomorrow) and suit up for Game 7? Hmm, looks like he’s still got it to me. C’mon David Stern…give ‘em a chance. Him posing & snapping a pic with Meek Mill is below.
“We want America wiping their asses on your face….I wanna wipe my ass with your face, Kris.” (…way too cold, Yeezy’s infamous shades at 1:47.) Spotted at New York Post.
The Funny or Die clip plays off Kris H. being deemed the most hated player in the NBA and him seeking new management after his inevitable divorce from Kim K and fall-out with the socialite’s momager, Kris Jenner. Not entirely OD hilarious, but it had its moments, especially the make-a-wish cat serving up a dosage of explicit words to Kris. I guess, basically, it teetered into the funny category because I feel the same way as everyone does about him. In the end, if Yeezy wants to gracefully take the coveted title of “biggest douche” away from Kris H, he can gladly, I mean, really get Jigga Man to trade him from the team.
The entire New York has been up in a frenzy since the God-like arrival of the Taiwanese baller Jeremy Lin. Bandwagoners and loyal fans alike, have all welcomed the Harvard alum, who has not only put the Knickerbockers on his back while leading them to a 7 game win streak, but has also received his fair share of flack, some good and some straight up ignorant, in this joyous time for the Big Apple. Of course, some are stating that with Melo’s comeback looming, it’ll be the true test to see if he and the Knicks’ new-found savior can…co-exist on the floor when that in fact happens. With A’mare stepping onto the floor this past week, after missing the last few because of the death of his older brother, that didn’t slow down the boys in orange and blue one bit. Like I said, Melo’s going to be the key, because all know he can put up the numbers and take the last shot when needed be, but can…umm the chemistry of the team survive the return of, you know, the ball hogger? Melo talked to Stephen A Smith about that (below) while above Jadakis sounds off on the recent Linsanity.
A resurgence of the Washington Bullets? Not quite, but one of the NBA’s worst teams (sorry fellas) is at least getting a mental pick-me-up, as the Washington Wizards select new uniforms for the 2011-2012 season. Becoming available as we speak, I give these upgraded threads the thumbs up. Hit the jump for the alternate.
