Skullcandy gives all out support to Philippine market

To show how serious Skullcandy is with the Philippine market, top executives showed up in a recent launch party held by the headphone brand that probably started the headphones as fashion accessories in the local music scene.


Brand new packaging on Skullcandy's Supreme Sound series

Skullcandy has been around in the country for 5 years and has gained a massive fan base from the action sports market, down to the broad music crowd. The company sees us as a huge growing market that’s why they planned to include us on their expansion plans.

Skullcandy’s Business Development Manager, Kris Altenburger, was present at the launch and he revealed to us that Skullcandy will be more than just a fashion statement with their upcoming products. He explained that the current lineup are just redesigned OEMs but for the upcoming Skullcandy 2.0s, they brought in designers and engineers to produce headphones that are distinctly Skullcandies. So expect some serious sound improvements when we see the 2.0s.

Major expansion is also in the works as Ron Basilio, Marketing Manager of Rains International Corporation which is Skullcandy’s local distributor, shared that they are projecting Skullcandy products to be available in at least 300 stores within Metro Manila, and 50 stores in the provinces. Right now, it’s widely available in 59 stores nationwide.

Skullcandy’s line of products involves earphones and earbuds, on-ear headphones, and over-ear headphones. Bursting with life and color, these products are not here to just influence style, as their functions are pretty serious too.

Here are some of the Skullcandy headphones that where showcased by models that night.

Some headphones come with built-in microphones that can be used with multimedia phones, or MP3 players. Similar to the headphones, earphones can be customized for that perfect fit, as some have interchangeable buds. They also offer optimum sound, from controllable subwoofers, to noise-reduction headphones, to iPod controls.

Price range of products go for as low as P995 to P3500 for the earphones and up to P16,500 for the headphones which would be the DJ Mix Master.

    cute yung nasa last pic. and i never really know how skullcandies sound like, i mean the higher end ones. meron bang store na pwede mag-audition ng skullcandy? sa PMC parang wala eh although nagbebenta sila.

  • JmBalicano

    A couple of my classmates back in college had skullcandy headphones that vibrated to the bass. They sounded awesome too. I’m more into earphones though. Any idea what their in-ear earphones sound like compared to the Klipsch S4a?

    • Calvin

      naw… i havent tried their high-end earphones but im curious din. yung entry-level nila is ordinary lang. a step above he stock ipod earphones.

    • JmBalicano

      Saying they’re a step up from the stock iPod earphones isn’t saying much, LOL. Those things are terrible. As soon as my GF got her iPhone 4, I gave them a test drive. iDisappointed. A real letdown compared to the really premium feel of the iPhone.

      • Calvin

        hahaha yeah… Apple should really work on those stock earphones.

  • yller

    I used to sell skullcandy earphones nun nasa pinas pa ako, i ordered direct from US store coz marami silang sale items na rarely wala sa mga store sa pinas. =)

    • Doy

      marami na po palang store skullcandy dito sa pinas, sm malls, festival, astrovision, dc, Bratpack, @ greenhills,davao, cebu, ilolo. wow!!!!

  • qwer

    Saan yang store? Saang store may latest/Supreme Sound headphones? Yung official skullcandy kasi sa Galleria Dept. Store, walang Supreme Sound.

  • Jimmy

    maganda sana kaya lang after one na sisira na, nag loloose na wire kaya minsan di na sabay tumutunog each side. wala din sila lifetime warranty sa Philippines, sa US lang daw applicable yun. Sayang talaga

  • doy

    mostly po sa wire po talaga nag kakaroon ng problem, not for skullcandy only.

    for headphone/earphone problem 9

    1. na hahatak-office table,car,club,poket,jeep etc.
    2. device malakas volume then pasok un jack ng headphone/earphne
    3. device malakas volume then tanggal unjack ng headphone/earphne
    lower the volume muna then todo na.

    kaya the skullcandy 2.0 lalabas na dito sa manila !!!!!!!!!

  • Rica
