Very disappointing and I would return them but I feel bad because my boys picked them out and I don't have the heart to tell them they're terrible.
Also, they look cool in the package, but when you get them in your hand the wires and build quality remind me of something you would get at the drugstore for 99 cents.
Skullcandy INK'd Earbuds S2INCZ-033 (Black/Black)
I thought they would be better because (LOL) the copy editors from Skullcandy made them sound better, and they cost more.
But guess what?
Skullcandy Ink'd remain my favorites. And I DO have a couple of mid-end earbuds too, Skullcandy just offers incredible value with the Ink'd.
In terms of sound quality, the Smokin' Buds seem a lot like my Griffin Ear Thumps - more bass, but slightly muffled mid range. The Ink'd are "clearer" to my ears.
1)When I first put them into my ears, they were very uncomfortable. They did not stay in my ear, and the volume was very low. I assumed it was because of the size of the ear bud I was using, so I tried the others. There are 3 different size ear buds in all. They are Large, Medium and Small... And they are all terrible.
Large: These are WAY to big for me... I can't get them into my ear, or do anything with them at all.
Medium: These are ones that I have gotten to work the best, but the sound is way off. These just plain don't fit well in the ear. So the sound is not very direct and often sounds muffled.
Small: These I can get to work if I push them into my ear like Ear Plugs. And I would honestly be okay with this if not for these 3 problems.
1. They sound bad this way... Sound is the whole reason I bought them. (This is true for the Medium and Large ones too)
2. They don't stay in at all. Real ear plugs that you push in are generally made out of foam rubber, so they can stay in
your ear. These are not. So they slip out. (This is true for the Medium and Large ones too)
3. It is super uncomfortable. I can only have them in my ear for 20 minutes tops. (This is true for the Medium ones too)
2)***I have tried this with all 3 of the sizes*** These do not stay in your ears at all. I bought these to use at the gym and although I had hopes that I could also use them when I run, I had my doubts before I bought them due to their shape. So I just wanted them to use during my normal workout. These don't even stay in my ear when walking to grab my weights.Read more ›
