PARK CITY, Utah, October 23, 2018 – Skullcandy, Inc., the original lifestyle audio brand, announced today the return of a classic with a twist – the all-new Icon Wireless. Skullcandy is keeping the Icon's celebrated design with the innovative features that made it a hit: a No-Slip headband, TapTech™ on-ear control, and now Bluetooth™ technology to make the headphone even better. The limited-edition Icon Wireless is a celebration of one of Skullcandy's cult classics and a tribute to the brand’s origins.
In 2006, Skullcandy introduced the world's first headphone designed for snowsports. Dubbed the "Icon", it featured a simple design that fit perfectly with ski and snowboard culture. From the biggest pros to weekend parkrats, the Icon gained a cult-like following. The Icon also quickly found its way into the skateboard scene. After three generations of product design, the Icon last appeared on shelves in 2014. Now, the Icon is back, and for the first time without wires.
"It's exciting to release a product that speaks to our heritage in board sports," said Kathryn Smith, Global Brand Director, Skullcandy. "The Icon is and will forever be emblematic of Skullcandy’s heritage. It changed the way people experienced music on the mountain and we're excited to give it the wireless treatment it deserves."
Icon Wireless is equipped with Bluetooth® Wireless technology, a 10 hour battery life, a No-Slip headband, and TapTech™ audio controls. Designed for use with gloves, TapTech™ allows you to easily control calls and music just by tapping the left ear cup.
Icon Wireless is available in two colorways, Black and Stone, for $49.99 and can be purchased now at Skullcandy.com and select retailers.
