Ive had these for about 3 1/2 months and I gotta say, they started out working really well and then boom...the audio quality died on me.I changed the audio setting in my ipod and that sort of helped.These headphones were just my backup pair just in case my skull candies died(like I stated before)I'm disappointed...These headphones fell apart in my ear!!I dont know if I got a faulty pair but buyers beware please.Sure I had these headphones for almost 4 moths but I hardly used them(since the audio sucked)As i'm typing this i'm looking for another pair of skull candies.They are reliable.GO FOR THE SKULL CANDIES!!!!save yourself the trouble!
I have black Skull Candy headphones that look exactly like these.They were the "inkd" series.I fell in love with them.I wanted to have a backup pair because im always on the go.I can actually tell you guys that I abuse my headphones.I use them everyday because I walk everywhere,I dont own a car so you can imagine all the noise a person is exposed to when they walk.I wanted another pair of headphones that had a rich sound and isolated noise but I wanted them to be a bit inexpensive.I found these headphones and my old pair of Skull Candies on this website so I started comparing them.Buying the Skull Candies would be around 16 bucks and these Cobys would be 12 bucks.Yes,I couldve just paid 4 bucks more for a brand that I already knew was great but I decided to take a risk.These headphones are great!When you get them out of the package the first thing you can see is that the headphone cord is a bit metallic looking(something thats rare and really nice btw)these headphones have an expensive look/feel but they arent.The bass is great!The sound in general is awesome.I happen to listen mostly to metal so the guitar riffs sound amazing!The isolation is freaking amazing too! You cant hear anything except your music.I will warn you though,if you plan on carrying a conversation with someone take the headphones off,dont think u can hear them with these headphones.Its impossible!!I have small ear canals so when I shop around I have to make sure that the headphones come with extra rubbery nobs(sorry I cant remember the official name for em)these do.I simply replaced them and BAM!! Music sounds great!I recommend these headphones to anyone who has an active lifestyle or to teenagers(like myself)that cant live without their music.They come in a variety of colors,they are unique,sound great AND they are inexpensive!
As with most earbuds or noise-canceling headphones, they do become a bit uncomfortable on the ears with extended wear - not that I'm all that used to wearing earbuds, as it is - but it's nothing that a short break from them won't cure! I consider it a very small price to pay for the quality of the sound these babies pump out! They really appeal to my sound snobby expectations!
Bass - This brand is my favorite brand for bass-enhanced products, and they do not disappoint with these earbuds. There is absolutely no distortion, even when listening to bass-heavy music. The more expensive brand I tried was nothing but bass, and even then, it could only handle so much. These are perfect!
Mids and Highs - I never fully understood what "mids" and "highs" meant in reviews like these until I experienced the lack of them. If the sound quality is all bass, everything sounds really muffled. Mids and highs are basically what complete the sound spectrum. With these, I can hear pretty much everything across the board. I'm no expert on these things, but suffice it to say that everything is clear as a bell on the upper levels, with the depth of bass adding just the right amount of volume to the listening experience.
Noise Cancellation - 10++! I plugged these bad boys into my ears right out of the box (not changing the pads to adjust for size), and they fit nice and snug in my ears. To test the noise cancellation ability of them, I put some music on at a reasonable volume level, then had someone talk to me. I could see her lips moving, but I couldn't hear a word she was saying. For some, that's the whole point, but personally, I like to be able to at least hear loud noises, so that I know if something has happened that requires my attention (i.e. something crashing, someone shouting, etc.). All I had to do to let a little more outside noise in was to change out the pads for the smallest set. They still fit just fine and I could hear louder noises, without compromising sound, which put me in my personal comfort zone.
Construction - You get three pairs of silicon pads with these earbuds. I think my ears are about average in size, and as mentioned, the mid-sized pads that came already attached were just fine. The smaller ones fit fine, too, but at the cost of less noise cancellation. I didn't try the larger pads for obvious reasons, but they look pretty big to me, so I would imagine those with larger ears shouldn't have a problem. Just eyeballing them, I'd say they were larger than the middles by at least one-quarter of the size. If that makes sense. The cord is a rubbery/silicon-like material. It's not a clingy type of rubber, though - like the kind you get with some sets, that catch on your clothes because they're pure rubber. It's more like a smooth rubber or silicon feeling cord. I didn't really hear much rustling from either, either. In fact, the sound of my breathing was amplified far more than the movement of the cord. That's not really an issue for me, but for some, it is. If you're a quiet-cord lover, then you'll probably be pleased with this one. The only draw-back here for me was length of the cord. For portable mp3 players (iPods, etc.), it'll work great, but since I use mine at my computer, too, I had to get an extension for it. Those are about two or three bucks, though, so it's not exactly a huge expense.
Extras - You get a little storage case with them, along with what I assume is a cord wrap? I really have no clue. It's rubberized and looks like a fish skeleton to me, with grooves cut out at the top and bottom. Even if that's not the purpose for it, it still looks like a great way to keep your cord from getting tangled when transporting them around.
OVERALL - I highly recommend these earbuds to anyone who is looking for a pair that has excellent sound quality across the full spectrum, and great noise-canceling capabilities.
I do realize that this review is based on my first encounter with these earbuds, which sometimes puts me off when reading feedback from other customers, so if I experience any problems in the near future, I'll be sure to come back to update my review!
