Are you kidding me? The Skullcandy Aviators had Pros of:
attractive detailing
interesting retro aesthetic
Comfortable memory foam ear cups, great for plane rides and other long time use.
None of which relate to the sound what-so-ever.

How did that headphone possibly score higher than the ATH-M50, which is a highly praised studio monitoring headphone? Whose Pros are:

A lot of Details in Sound.
Good price - 100$ on eBay.
Superb highs, mids & lows. Accurate.

Clearly this website is severely biased. Great sound (ATH-M50), or great looks (Aviators)...I think looks are more important than the sound, yup.
