I Love them, even if the price went up
on January 9, 2014
I have been using SkullCandy since 2009. True, I have gone through a handful since then because of wear & tear but with its price, they really can't be beat. Personally, I prefer the older SkullCandy look (small, glossy and bud-like) compared to the new flattened-earbud. SkullCandy earphones have gone up in price (a real shame-I got my first pair at about $8.00) but they are still overall really good earphones.
- Great fit (earbuds come with three different-sized silicone earpieces. If none are comfortable, amazon offers silicone replacements that work with these earphones)
- Excellent sound (EQ's and bass are vivid, making the music all the more pleasant)
- Lasts long enough for me (I have a tendency to fall asleep with them in my ears, or accidentally yank them on my laptop or phone, etc. I had a pair that lasted four months and another that lasted a year and three months. It really does depend on how you take care of them).
I bought one for my boyfriend back in 2012 (one of my first "gifts" to him before we became an official couple) and he loved them too. He hasn't used other types since then either. This Christmas, he bought his brother the "rasta" ones and I figured now would be a good time to review them after five years of use and approval of peers/lover.
I docked one star because of the price raise since I began using them. I can understand why a company would do that, doesn't mean I have to like it as a consumer :-P
