Skullcandy is a leading audio brand that reflects the collision of the music, fashion and action sports lifestyles. Our brand and distinctive logo symbolizes youth and rebellion, and embodies our motto, “Every revolution needs a soundtrack.” Founded on innovation, we fuse bold color schemes, loud patterns, unique materials and creative packaging with the latest audio technologies and innovative functionalities to create new and unique product. Our headphones feature our distinctive Skullcandy sound and leading-edge design. We offer a wide array of styles and price points and are expanding our brand into complementary audio products and accessories.
Skullcandy products are sold in the United States and in more than 70 other countries around the world. We pioneered the distribution of headphones in specialty retailers focused on action sports and the youth lifestyle, such as Zumiez, Tilly’s and hundreds of independent snow, skate and surf retailers. Through this channel we reach consumer influencers, individuals who help establish and maintain the credibility and authenticity of our brand. Building on this foundation, we have successfully expanded our distribution to select consumer electronics, mass, sporting goods and mobile phone retailers.
The company was founded in 2003 by Rick Alden, the creator of several successful action sports companies and a lifelong industry enthusiast. Rick developed his inspiration for Skullcandy while listening to a portable music player on a chairlift in Park City, Utah. Jeremy Andrus, our president and chief executive officer, and our management team share a passion for the Skullcandy lifestyle of action sports and music. Our principal offices are located in Park City, Utah and San Clemente, California, which are at the epicenters of some of the best snow peaks, skate parks and surf breaks in the world.
