Skullcandy has been known for their headphones with pretty loud graphics and colors with a skate/punk look. More than the quality of the sound, it is their looks that differentiate them from other manufacturers. Every now and then we all feel like doing something different and Skullcandy has also stepped back from their Skater/punk image and have come out with the Vandal iPhone speaker dock. It could be a conscious decision on their part to leave the beaten track just this once for this particular product.
Vandal iPhone speaker dock has a very sleek look. At the same time it has a vintage or a retro look. The black and gold color combination and the front portion of the dock reminds you of the Marshall guitar amplifier head. It could be possible the designer was inspired by the amplifier to create this particular look. The design is definitely a huge departure from the line of headphones they have been making so far. If they are looking for an image makeover then the Vandal iPhone speaker docks will go a long way in achieving that.
This new launch from Skullcandy is sure to get them a new set of customers and in order to retain them they might readjust and fine tune their design and look in the future. Apart from the looks the Vandal iPhone speaker dock is as good as any other comparable product in the market. It comes with 80mm woofers and 19mm tweeters. It gives you a total output of 21 watts. It is pretty decent as far as the speaker docks go. The Vandal has been priced at $179.99.
