are these any good? Quickly googled for reviews on the regular Aviators and they aren't very positive. But these do have "memory foam"
 



anyway, they are too overpriced for me

Aww this really brings me down. Not just for the sake of the band, but for Szabo's work as well. Fuck you, really.

Who the fuck does Dinosaur think they are with all this crassly commercial and obscenely expensive merchandising? When I first saw this thread, i thought they were talking about the $20 Section-8 "band" headphones and I actually thought that'd be kind of cool. But $300 like bitch ass Dr. Dre??


 

It's lame, everything's lame.

Dino have been tied into the skate scene forever, and had several items of merch put out by various companies, so this is not totally unprecedented. Frustrating for vinyl collectors who don't want expensive clothes/shoes/headphones though.

I just was a bunch of Skull Candy "INK" designs headphones at target, $20. If they were Dinosaur? I'd probably buy them. I don't even think those Section-8 headphones have good sound, but if I saw a band I wanted to rep I'd get those too.. $300? You can go on vacation for $300
