Roc Nation and Skullcandy have joined forces to release their new “Aviator” headphones, available at all the finer music and entertainment retailers. This will be the first style launched by the two music powerhouses and will include “superior metals, polycarbonate headphone cups, plucsh memory foam ear cushions, and premium materials previously only seen in the realm of high-fashion eyewear.”

Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter said, “Our passion is creating amazing music. We’re dedicated to delivering the best in live performances. Now with the Roc Nation / Skullcandy partnership, we’re offering the best way for people to experience the soundtrack of their lives.”

We will see how these compare to Dr. Dre’s Beats headphones and how they will affect the high-end headphone market.
