Skullcandy, Inc., a high-growth premium audio lifestyle brand has teamed up with professional surfer Mick Fanning for the Global Launch of the Mick Fanning Limited Edition Fix ear buds.

Skullcandy’s Fix ear buds reflect the technological evolution for which the innovative brand is known. Addressing the problematic, yet common issue of ear buds falling out during rigorous activity, Skullcandy reconstructed and designed the perfect fit, emphasizing comfort for the more active music lovers. The sophisticated Fix ear bud, inspired by the shape of the ear canal, has been industrially designed to stay put, while still delivering supreme sound.

No one appreciates this more than pro-surfer Mick Fanning, who unveils his limited edition Fix ear buds Thursday, March 7 at The Sands Coolangatta, QLD, in Australia. Fanning, a 2 time Association of Surfing Professionals World Champion, is no stranger to action and values the ease that the Skullcandy Fix ear buds offer, thus making this collaboration a perfect fit.

“When Skullcandy approached me about a signature product the Fix was definitely the one I wanted to go with. It made perfect sense because I love and use that product everyday anyway. It’s great for training, talking on the phone, listening to music and all-around everyday use,” stated Mick Fanning.

Mick Fanning’s Skullcandy Fix will be available March 2013. For more information about Skullcandy, please visit
