Now in the area that matters - sound quality. Unfortunately, most of my rating was lower simply because of this. The headphones emit whatever sound you put them through, but for the most part things just sound too average and flat. There is no significant bass or overall good balance. The bandwidth is not Bose or Westone quality, so don't expect to be blown away. I mean, even in the least. Plus right out of the package, I noticed that with some songs, if the volume was even significantly louder than average, the headphones would make this small rattling and distortion type of sound, as if the speakers weren't strong enough to handle a higher than average volume. This is the biggest disappointment with these headphones. One would think that with speakers this big these phones would be strong enough to handle a good amount of bass without any distortion whatsoever. Then again, Skull Candy has always been notorious for their style of substance, and these headphones are unfortunately no exception.
These are a good idea for a collector's item if you are buying them for a fan of the Paul Frank artist, but if you want to do your music justice, spend a little more on a quality brand, like Sennheiser, Bose, Westone, Sony, Phillips, etc. (Actually, some of these other brand names would probably offer BETTER sound quality headphones for a cheaper price).
In the end, being a big fan of music, I simply cannot recommend these, or any other Skull Candy product.
I had written that there was a good deal of distortion at higher volume levels and this remains true, but I am speaking about what most people would consider an insane decibel load for the human ear. After 45 years of playing like Tommy Chong, my ears are shot anyway, but others might like to preserve their hearing.
The cord is a bit short, but I own many extensions, so if you need a longer cord, pick one up. I really like the fabric feel of the cord. It should help it last longer than a traditional one........time will tell.
In short, I recommend these phones both for the average listener and for the Rockers out there who are tired of wimpy low end headphones and on't want to drop a few hundred dollars for the big boys just now.
However, these headphones HURT. I'm a skinny guy, 25 years old, normal sized head and ears, and these things make me feel like I'm wearing a vice on my face. If you wear glasses, don't get these at all unless you've been dying to discover new pressure points behind your ears. They squeeze really hard all things considered, and the earcups are deceptively small so you have to actually wrap the cushions around your ears in several steps to actually make them fit on your head.
Overall, great sound, really really uncomfortable for someone who has an adult-sized head.
If you are looking at more expensive headphones, I would seriously consider these or any other Skullcandy cans first. The quality and customer service (Lifetime replacement) cannot be beat!
