    Excellent workout ear buds

    I bought these to replace a pair that had gone out in one ear. I use them in a crowded gym while running on a treadmill. This makes for a normally loud environment mixed with a lot of bouncing up and down. I had expected them to be understandable and not fall out after 500 ft. I was happily surprised by the results. First off, the sealed out the background sounds very very well. My other ear buds did the same, but required me to turn up my audio book to full volume to be understandable. The Skull Candies were understandable at just over 50% volume. Second, they never came loose. Even after 6 miles they stayed in and didn't shift. VEry impressive. Lastly, the sound quality was much better than I expected. Not only did the speakers in audio books sound like they were right next to me, but music sounded excellent. It was on par with a pair of much more expensive head phones I own. Whether you are looking for sport head phones or not, I highly recommend these ear buds!

    Good sound for the Price

    i have always liked the Skull Candy Inkd line. they provide good sound for the price, i have always liked the amount of bass these little guys packed, this is my second pair in about 2 weeks though. One day i was listening to music, took the headphones out and stopped using them for like 3 hours and when i put them back in one of the sides just stopped working (right side.) So be weary of that, but i was able to get a new pair really quick, as i live close to BestBuy and as soon as the problem occurred i went in and they just checked me out a new pair, because i had Geeksquad protection. So yeah i would recommend these, but i would add a protection plan with them, because it gives you a piece of mind, i didn't even have to re-purchase the protection plan when i get a new pair, and it's still active so if these break i think i can just go back in again.

    Got these for 13 bucks but broke down after like a month, sucks that they didn't last long but they were really great while they were working, sound quality is great, I love that they are tangle free even tho the cord feels weird it's definitely worth it, the mic and pause button are great additions to the headphone and I find myself using them every time, the only thing that stopped me from giving them a 5 star rating was that they only lasted me a month but it's not a big deal since I got them for 13 dollars, also I'm not sure if anyone has this problem but when there was a loud environmental sound or something the headphones would muffle up the sound for a second, also they tend to come out your ears if you're working out but if you just need headphones for when you're studying or doing anything that doesn't require a lot of movement then these are great for 10 bucks

    Skullcandy beats Beats anyday.

    I discovered the excellence of Skullcandy about 5 years ago and there has been no turning back for me. For being so small, these earbuds have BOOM. They come with three different sizes of attachable rubber fits so that almost any ear can listen in comfort. I like bass and lots of it and I've never found better headphones than the quality products that Skullcandy makes, not even when my neice got a pair of Beats that cost over $100 - they sounded tinny and hollow compared to these little $20 earbuds. I'm pretty hard on my headphones - I tend to toss them from bag to bag in transport and let them get lost in my vehicle - but these hold up pretty well and I've only had to replace a pair once when I accidentally ripped a bud right off of the wire. I've purchased Skullcandy earbuds time and time again just to give as gifts. If you like headphones that have a hard headband and you're on a budget like I am, I recommend the Uprocks (I have a pair of those, also). 5 STARS, SKULLCANDY!!!

    Really good headphones for the price

    The Skullcandy headphones come with size adjustment buds, the normal size worked well for me. They don't fall out but I use these at work, not at a gym or anything super active. The Audio is good for the price, I don't need Bose or Beats for podcasts so these are perfect. The chord doesn't get tangled and the push button for pause or answering calls is convenient for use. I wrap these up at the end of the day around my hand circularly and chord hasn't statted to warp or anything and I've had these for about 6 months now. If you're thinking about some general every day use headphones that don't need to be top name then these work well. You should clean out the center of the earbuds regularly as it seems like it can get dirty with regular use and dust from leaving inside pf desk. I clean the buds out weekly and it's easily accomplished.

    Clearer than other budget headphones

    Its a replacement for my son's recommended budget in ear headphones with mic from another company (P...TCM125). My son seems to need a new pair once in two months, so expensive headphones is not an option. The Skullcandy had a clearer sound, seemingly having a bit more pronounced mids and highs, while maintaining the same lows as the other pair. He uses them on his phone, obviously, and mostly for music, which he listens to everyday. They are comfortable. Initially he was concern about a flatter sound, but a part of the blame was on his phone settings and imbeded plyer setting. I had to buy him another player and he could properly use the equalizer, since then he says that the sound improved dramatically, so it was rather phone's fault, not headphone's. Additionally to music - the phone conversations are very clear, but we are on 4G, so perhaps that adds to the clarity. If my current headphones would die, I would buy a pair of these.

    Thin sound, too soon for build quality verdict

    Posted
    jsk666

    I just bought these about two hours ago. I won't comment on build quality because I haven't had them long enough. The fit is good for me with the larger ear pieces. The sound quality? Thin. No bass at all. (Yes, I've got them seated in my ears correctly.) The ad copy is thoroughly misleading. "Rich, deep bass"? Laughable. I'm currently listening to the newest Bad Company UK (drum and bass) album and all of the low-end is gone. Bass drum hits are just thwacks with no bottom to them. I had bought these for use at work but they're going to my wife who has a habit of going through headphones like chewing gum. It's not even worth my time to return these or exchange them for something else. I'll just keep looking for something with better sound. I guess you get what you paid for...

    Skullcandy has knocked it out of the park again! I have always purchased Skullcandy products and they get better and better each time I upgrade. These headphones have the perfect amount of treble and bass all the way up to the max volume (which is very loud). The mic/remote works flawlessly with all of my Apple devices. They are very light weight, stylish, and stay in your ears great (even at the gym or when running). Also, Skullcandy is a great company when it comes to customer support and warranty claims (lifetime warranty). You cannot find better headphones for a better price, or even more expensive headphones that sound better than these.

    Great Travel Earphone or Secondary Earphone

    I travel frequently and like having a compact set of earphones for listening to music, TVs on planes, laptop, iPad etc.. The challenge with traditional compact earphones is that the cords get tangled easily and it's annoying undoing the knot every time you want to use them. The nice feature with these earphones is that the cord is wider than usual and thicker plastic material, so it doesn't tangle easily. It also has a fair amount of durability in it that's a bonus over traditional cords.The sound quality is pretty good. I'm sure music buffs will find it imperfect, but I'm just an average guy and think the quality is very good. You have to keep expectations real. This type of earphone is not intended to be the uber earphone. They're designed for practicality. So if you're looking for a great pair of earphones to serve as your travel pair, and/or your secondary earphones (vs the high end phones like Beats, etc), then I heartily recommend these.

    Cant beat the sound quality for the price

    In-ear head phones are a dime a dozen now a days. you can get then at the dollar store. But if you expect a little more out of your ear buds like i do, you might want to try the Ink'd 2, from Skullcandy. I havent tired too many ear-buds because I'm a audiophile snob who thinks that ear buds cant possibly sound good. My earbud experience has mostly been with the stock buds they include with MP3 player or cell phone purchases. These are only $16 bucks out the door. Cheap price but not cheap sound. I was shocked at how good the sound was. Im into some heavy bass music and it sounded great. They are very slim on the sides so they can fit in my ears with my motorcycle helmet on. They come in a bevy of bright colors so you dont lose them in your gigantic purse or on your floor. Best part is Skullcandy will replace them once for FREE. Just remember to keep your receipt. For what i expected for 16 bucks i got alot more than expected.

    Perfect "Cheap" Earbuds

    My family and I have a tendency to lose things. Earbuds rank up there in the top ten. I really needed to invest in good earbuds that wouldn't break my wallet since the likelihood of repurchase was high. By good I mean decent sound quality, good fit, and low on the "my earbuds can make a sailor's knot if left unattended in my backpack" scale. Skullcandy did not disappoint. I realize there are cheaper earbuds out there on the market. They don't have the same quality. For the price of one Ink'd, I've bought multiple of the cheaper brands only to have them break in less than two weeks. That means I or a family member had to go without them while I went out to buy another pair. Not a good investment to me. Ink'd have become the go-to earbuds for everyone here. I highly recommend them if you are looking for good earbuds without paying a fortune.

    Great beginner bluetooth wireless headset

    It's very simple to use - only 4 different "sounds" telling you different kinds of information: On(discoverable), Off, "Already-on"-ready-to-pair, and low battery - about to shut off sound. The audio quality isn't the best, but I suppose that's not something you can really expect from a wireless headset (at this price range). Lastly, it only lasts around 5ish hours and charges relatively fast (red light is charging, blue light is done). Negatives are that it just doesn't stay on your neck that well, distance is not that far, most importantly ***microphone is difficult for anyone to hear unless if you have that the left ear-phone in (which is the side where the "mic + volume buttons are). But I've had trouble with people hearing me unless I specifically speak into the mike. I'm returning this device, but would love to try it for a longer period of time if possible.

    Good entry level earbuds

    As entry level earbuds, these are great. From when I was a poor college student looking for a stylish pair of buds that could keep the environmental sound isolated and still deliver great bass, these were my daily essentials. I'm by no means an expert audiophile, but as a definitive aficionado of music in general, I would recommend these buds. In terms of sound clarity, they have a great bass driver, decent mids and decent highs. The sound clarity that a sound engineer or audiophile may be listening for will be lacking, but for general use, these don't miss a beat. Mic and controls always a plus as well. I've gone through numerous pairs of these, which is why durability is only average to me. Typically, they don't go past a year of usage- however, Skullcandy's warranty is amazing. Fill out the forms, send it back and Skullcandy will credit you the full amount paid and you can purchase another set "free" on their site.

    I used a pair of Skull Candy earphones for over 2 years. Don't recall the model number - they had a volume control/slider. Unfortunately, the cable kinked and it had to be held "just right" to operate correctly. Time for a new pair of phones. I like the in-ear models. I was at Best Buy shopping for something else altogether, but my wife remembered I needed new headphones and brought these over. I believe they were approx. $20. They looked cool, said "Skull Candy", so I went with them. It was during my morning train commute that I noticed the sound was extremely treble-y. It was very annoying. Unfortunately, I'm too lazy to go back and return them. Instead, I'll take it as a lesson learned (and share with you). This was an "impulse" buy. I should have done a bit more research or, at a minimum, used my phone to test the quality of the phones in the parking lot, before leaving the premises.

    I had to make a quick purchase one time hen walking into Best Buy. I needed some earbuds for my iPad, and I was in a hurry. I quickly asked someone for help, on where the earbuds were. They took me to them, and I browsed at them for about 5 minutes, before making my decision. I have always heard that SkullCandy is a pretty good brand for headphones, earbuds etc.. That is the main reason I chose these earbuds. I grabbed a pair, and read the back and front of the package. It said they had an 'intense bass-like" sound, so that is another reason I chose these. I finally went to the check out line, bought them and opened them up and tested them, right when I got in the car, They were everything they said they were. And I think for the price I paid, I got a quality product.

    Well these rock! And you can rock em pretty loud and quietly for your surrounding audiences. I am into my head gear and Bose, Klipsch & higher end brands. However I did get a free pair (S.C.) of ( in the ear ) Buds w/my iPhone. They were nice but far off from these (SC) in ear buds. These have flat wire, remote on wire, 1pr. Changeable ear buds & are gold tipped. The sound is very crisp and the bass booms. Skull candy makes nice head gear for a more affordable price. Especially when you don't want to carry around high end ($) equip. I got em for a very good price & a 2yr warrenty (GeekS) bc I read different opinions and its always good to have a warrenty when offered, if ya got the few extra bucks. 1 star off bc I hvnt had them long enough to rate a true and fair review of the buds durability. And that's my review, hope it helps.

    Worst pair I've had

    I've been rocking skull candys for a long time and was a strong supporter of theirs. But lately the pairs I've been getting are garbage. I had the titans and the 50/50. Those were awesome and lasted me a long time. But I picked these up for rides on my motorcycle since I like the noise cancelling t provides over wind noise. And the connection was horrible. They were cutting out day one and I had the cord covered behind my vest and the terminal wasn't pinched. Skull candy has really gone down in their quality. I think it's time I hang up the hat and move on to another company. Can't say much for their higher end like, but I got their wireless xtfree when they first came out and they were just ok. Not nearly as loud as wired earbuds. In any case, very displeased with this purchase.

    I bought these after my Sennheiser HD428s broke (very very high quality headphones, got tons of usage out of them) and didnt have enough money to buy a replacement pair. They are the most comfortable in-ear headphones I've worn, and the cable is thicker, so it should last longer in theory. Performance wise, the bass is overwhelming every other part of my music save the vocals, which I don't really care for bass in the first place, (#treble4lyf) but its almost to a point where it's not even enjoyable to listen to my favorite songs, even on reduced bass EQ. I guess if you enjoy bassy songs, you'll enjoy these. To each their own, this obviously isn't mine. I remember i spent an extra $7 on a pair of Koss earbuds that were superior in every aspect to these, however I don't know the model of said earphones. If you find them, buy them, the extra money is definitely worth it.

    Inconvenient

    Posted
    Nads

    This was recommended to me by a Best Buy employee. If you plan on using these at the gym, buy a different set. Body sweat makes the in line controls short out and cause voice control commands on iPhone to constantly come on. The cord gets stuck on everything BC of the rubber it's made of. I don't know how many times the cord simply got caught on my shirt and yanked the earbuds out of my ears. The ear buds fall out of my ears constantly and don't fit. And the microphone does not work when u talk on the phone. People say the voice cuts in and out. This product isn't the greatest. And I wish Best Buy had more than a 14 day return policy. I would gladly purchase another pair of earbuds from Best Buy, but not the skull candy. If Best Buy reads this review and will honor an exchange I would so greatly appreciate it. Thanks!!

    If any of you guys are constantly looking for wireless earphones that makes it possible for your personality, you might wanna stay the facts that any of these were constantly expensive and puts your smile upside down without expectations running through your mind. BUT, if you want to select that item I’ve purchased ... it’ll just totally blow your mind off. ‘Cause these were highly satisfying the way we plug through ever devices we owned and puts your mind into a whole imagination we’ve kept in thought. And what comes greater, it’s even comes in a lower price. So, I suggest that you buy this gold and you’ll be good to go! 0 ω < ლ
