To start I got these from Skullcandy's site when these came out over a year ago for $100.

For the (current) price of $60 on Amazon these are easily worth the price especially including Skullcandy's lifetime warranty. Which makes these easy to replace if they fail in some sort of way.

The audio quality of these are pretty good. I've compared these with Bose QC15 and some other high quality head phones. The other ones were easily better but these aren't all that far behind in terms of bass quality and highs and mids. And I was testing without an amp using PowerAmp music player and uncompressed Flac files.

These have great lows, not the best but they're definitely powerful especially using the right bass boosting software. The highs and mids are where these start to lack (especially the highs). But if you're not looking for best audio possible and just want some easy and good headphones to use while on the go, then these are perfect. Especially with the warranty.

Now that brings me to my next topic durability. These are pretty durable. The have lasted far longer than any other skullcandy headphones I've owned (if that says anything at all). They've lasted about a year I think and they're just now starting to show signs of wear. The little plastic ring around the jack is starting to lose the adhesion from the glue underneath. As long as I don't try and jam it into something it's fine but it can slid out sometimes if I do jam it. The plastic rings around the earbud part isn't even glued (anymore) and I can't remember if it ever was. Good thing they're just for looks and don't actually do anything. But mine are missing the ring on the left earbud. Other than that they seem fine. Still going strong and haven't showed signs of audio loss due to a possibly faulty jack which is surprising considering that's how all my other headphones seem to go.

FYI- The three button system doesn't work with Android phones. Only iPhone and other Apple products.

Final words- These headphone are good for if you're using them for traveling or if you just want to use them for everything and aren't an audiophile (which is most people). These are a lot better than the similarly priced Beats (which that whole brand is bad and overpriced anyways). Anyways great-to-good lows , medium mids, okay highs. If you're just going to listen to pandora and 192kbs mp3's then these will be more than fine! 320kbs mp3s sound almost identical to uncompressed Flac at 1.0mbs with these. So if you're an audiophile you shouldn't be looking at these anyways. But if you are one and have a low budget these will be fine.

Bottom line- For $60 these are a great buy for just about anyone.

I was using SC Ink'd for almost 2 years before I bought these and they freaking cook!! I own a medium sized pro sound business and I assure you these buds WAY hit low. The "high's" are pristine and the "lows" are skull shaking! I cannot recommend them enough!!!

I was a huge fan of the Full Metal Jackets until they got phased out and replaced with Heavy Medal. LOVE these. I have turned so many ppl on to Skullcandy. Keep making quality products!

I picked these up when 1 of my ink'd sets went out. They won't just replace your set of earbuds they make you send them in and then they give you a coupon that you can only redeem on their website. I had went through several pairs of ink'd, riots, and titans so I figured buck up and pay a little more for these heavy medal. Like the other reviewer stated I too was expecting a lot of bass. The specs page on Skullcandy's website says frequency response is 5hz to 22,000khz. Even after a good burn in they just don't deliver. The bass is much deeper on the riots which only claim 20hz to 20,000khz. The whole sound is just a mess. The cable is the same as the 1 on the 50/50 so cable noise is there however I noticed it wasn't as bad with the comply foam tips. They look really cool but I'm starting to realize that's all skullcandy is good at. If you are looking for good sounding well balanced earbud you can find them far cheaper. My J3's by jlab are heaven in my ears at $25. My sennheiser cx300s are great sounding with deep bass for around $30. Heck even my v-moda bass freq's sound better than these at $15. So unless you're just a huge skullcandy fan I'd stay away from these

I have been using Sony earphones with a mic for my iPhone for years. Once again they broke allowing me to only hear from one side. I found these headphones/mic at TKMaxx in the UK for £20 and was a bit skeptical. My fears were softened as the sound quality is superb and everyone can hear me on calls much clearer. They also come with many options for different sized ear canals perfect for those with small ears like me, and to boot they have a great little metal carrying case. I will go back and buy another pair just to have a spare. Excellent excellent excellent!

You are better off with getting skull candy titan earbuds for MUCH cheaper and better sound quality. Pass on these earbuds.
