Rick Alden formed Skullcandy in 2003. The first Skullcandy product—the Skullcandy Portable Link—was introduced at the 2003 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada. The LINK system combined headphones with hands-free cellular technology, allowing users to both listen to music from a portable audio device, while making and receiving calls through their cell phone. In 2003, Alden sold the first products to an action sports shop in Utah.
From that day on Skullcandy have been at the cutting Edge of Audio Integration, Production and Style.
