I consider myself a bit of a headphone connoisseur and have used tons of different earbuds searching for the perfect pair. As a musician, I use Shure e3's with sleeves custom molded to my ear canal by an audiologist. I've also used several professional circumaural headphones in the studio.

These headphones do not reproduce sound as accurately as Shure's e2 and e3 models, but I still prefer these for everyday listening. They are bass heavy compared to a linear response. When these earbuds are properly inserted, the bass is massive, and isolation is EXCELLENT. They are much easier to pop in and get an great seal than the Shures (with foam, plastic, or custom silicon sleeves).

CONS: The wires are thin and so do not fall flat like heavy duty wires but are quality enough for the job. The case it comes with is useless.

PRO: Excellent sound (although technically not "accurate" or linear), extremely strong bass (the best I've ever heard in an earbud), excellent isolation, easy, comfortable secure fit. Excellent value.

Bottom line: I call these headphones "the best headphones under $100" even though I know they only cost a fraction of that. I lost my pair and am buying two more pairs now.

Other notes: I've used them while running and they will stay in for about 15 minutes...much longer than any other i've tried. it helps to have very clean ears. No other earbud stays in longer than a couple minutes. A trick I use is to bring the cable up your back behind you (its nice not to have wires flopping in front of you while you run) and then loop the wire over your ear from the back and insert the earbud upside down. The weight of the cord will be resting on the top of your ear and not pulling the earbud out.

These are without a doubt the best ear-buds i've ever tried. I went to FYE and bought a pair for an amazing price of $9.99 and have been blow away by the sound quality. Also, I find the set to be quite comfortable and haven't had any problems with the fit that other reviews have comemented on. So far, they hold in place very nicely and haven't fallen out once, even during long runs. Perhaps my ear shape is more compatible with these than someone elses.

I've tried quite a few earphones in the past and have usually been dissapointed by the lack of bass and the "tin sound" that many of them put out.

Earphones I've tried:
Shure E2c
Sennheiser HD 555
Sony MDR-EX81LP Bud-Style Stereo Earphones
Bose Triport headphones
Grado Sr 80
and many more that aren't worth mentioning...

These can really hold their own when they are put up to some of the more expensive models that range from 50-150 dollars. The bass is rich and deep and has a very nice contrast with the highs as well. When I buy a set of earphones, I usually play the same three songs to critique the sound.

First I tried Enigma's Gravity of Love in order to test the over-all contrast of the different frequencies and was pleasantly surprised in the rich sound that was produced. Instead of sounding like a speaker stuck in a tin can, the sound was full and alive with a great echo effect.

Second, I played Tool's Lateralus in order to test the power of the bass and treble. Due to the heavy guitar in most metal, most earphones start to produce static and the sound falls apart with feedback. I was very pleased that Skull Candy was able to deliver a sound that will please the most intense metalheads and punk lovers alike.

When I first got these earbuds, I was ecstatic - they were so much more comfortable than the other earbuds I owned (stock ipod buds and Sennheiser). After about two months, the sound from the left earbud gave out. My nephew, who also had a pair, experienced loss of sound in both buds after a couple of weeks. After he exchanged them for a new pair, his new pair also started giving him problems after a few weeks. The sound was choppy and only worked if the wires were twisted a certain way.

I tried to contact Skullcandy by email and through their website (which promises a response within 48 hours). It has been 2 weeks and I have yet to receive a response. A lifetime warranty is useless if the company doesn't bother to honor it.

I agree that the case is useless and poorly designed. It is also quite strange that some have symmetrical cords and some have assymetrical cords. There is no way to tell which one you have as the boxes are not marked so you can distinguish one from the other. I used to think that the volume control was a cool feature but after a while the control unit began to feel heavy. I would not buy this product again.

OK, I am no hardcore music freak, but I got these skullcandy smokin buds. I like the design and I really really like having a volume adjuster on the cord. That is why I bought these. Now they are good headphones. But I have the Sony MDREX51LP also and the Sony's have a much deeper bass to them. Also the Sony cord is sturdier and I think it will not get kinked as easily.

Given some of the negative reviews I read before purchasing these earbuds, my expectations were pretty low. I'm not an audiophile in the sense that frequency differences and the nuances from one genre of music to another matter greatly to me when I'm out and about, and I wanted these for my iPod. Therefore, I decided that price was the better part of valor in this case, and purchased these headphones.

I love them! They fit well in my ears on the medium bud covers, the noise canceling even with no music on is astonishing, and everything from podcasts to audiobooks to music sound great. I don't have to put the volume high anymore when practicing belly dance in order to hear the lower-toned portions of electronica, and the volume control on the wire makes it easy to adjust without removing the iPod from my pocket, as necessary.

The only drawback I've found is that when I had a cold, the pressure created by the noise-canceling seal in the earbuds was minorly uncomfortable, but all in all, these were a fantastic buy for the price. If you're not someone who quibbles over minutaie in sound, I think you'll be pleased.
