    I bought these headphones to replace a set of Apple iPhone 4 headphones that died. I had originally purchased the Ecko Lace Earbud Headphones from Best Buy as I wanted something that would untangle easily after being bunched up in my pocket. I was unhappy with Ecko Lace buds and got these instead. These were cheaper and much better quality. Should have listened to Best Buy reviews! These Skullcandy buds have good performance and untangle easily. They only have a 1-button remote as opposed to a 3-button remote but I can live with that. Much better than original Apple earbuds that came with iPhone 4.

    Best cheap headphones on the market

    I have owned several cheap headphones before, from my Apple headphones to various generic brands. But when I bought the skullcandy ink'd 2 my mind was blown. I never realized that sound quality could be this good in earphones, especially under $20. They are in a totally different league than the cheap headphones I've used before, the ear gels are extremely comfortable and the fit is great. The chord is not tangle free, but it is much less prone to tangling than my Apple earbuds. Basically if you need a set of cheap earphones to carry in your pocket, this is by far the best you can get for the price.

    I have been buying these things for years and I haven't had a single issue with any of them aside from the fact that they will eventually stop working simply from normal wear and tear. I have a pair I keep around my desk top, I use a pair for gaming on my PS4 and another in my backpack so I always have one in case I need some headphones at work or just want to watch some videos on my phone during lunch. These work really well with great noise canceling properties and pretty decent bass and are pretty cheap given how well they work.

    I really enjoy my Skullcandy Ink'd 2 earbuds. The headphones have great sound, the base is fantastic, and the controls to operation the volume along with a plethora of other features is easy to use. I like these headphones so much that I know if these were to somehow break down I would without a doubt buy them again. Plus, you cannot beat the price that BestBuy has when this great company puts them on sale. I would highly recommend these earbuds to anyone - you will not be disappointed.

    I really like my ear buds. I bought them as a replacement for my previous pair by the same company. I wanted a pair with the remote on the ear buds so I sprung a few extra bucks for these. The color is great and they have very good cushion for your ears. I sometimes wear one ear bud while riding my motorcycle and I can still hear the music and the traffic around me. The only down side to these is the remote does not turn the volume up and down like I thought. It still pause the music and skip tracks. This isn’t a function I use for these. Other than that I love the ear buds and use them every time I go to the gym.

    I love these earbuds. I was having a very difficult time choosing earbuds, I was looking at sony, and some others, but with the help of reviews I settled on Skull Candy. Good choice! I love them. They were affordable, and unlike most affordable earbuds they work, and the sound is decent. They are also so sleek looking. I use the microphone a lot for phone calls and that also seems to work just fine. The long cord allows me to move around while my phone is stationary. To me the cord itself seems thin, so I am extremely careful because I am afraid I will just tear it. No problems so far! Great buy, I recommend.

    I was looking for a headphone to replace my broken Samsung one that came with the phone. I didn't want to spend a lot on an headphone and I gave this product a try. To my surprise this is probably the best Skull Candy headphone at its price in terms of performance and appearance wise (very sleek). The sound are very clear with a tasteful amount of bass added. The inline button for usage is also very responsive. Overall it was worth the purchase at its price.

    I wanted a microphone to be able to talk with these plugged in. I also wanted the ability to press play/pause without getting my phone out (I often use an armband while I work out/run). However, I was disappointed there were not volume controls on the earphones as well (which is what I like about the Samsung earphones). I do like that different size buds come with, because I have extremely small ears I need the xs buds to fit. In terms of using these to work out, they stay put pretty well, except for when there is a lot of sweat, they fall out of my ears. Overall, they are worth what I paid for them.

    Ink'd 2 headphones are hands down my favorite. Before I purchased these mint ones I had the earbuds that were red and black. I liked them so much I actually took them from my friend. Shhh. They lasted a little over a year. That is crazy for me, earbuds before I found Ink'd 2 lasted me maybe a month MAX. So these can definitely handle wear and tear. For example, after I received these beauties my Flippin kitten got ahold of them. There's definitely bite marks galore on them but they work exactly like they did when they came out of the case. I'd recommend these to any and everyone who will listen!

    I need reference sound for mixed audio of guitars I review. I also need something that will not fall out all the time. And I need a phone friendly mic. Skull Candy ear buds do all that for me well. I like the ones designed expressly to not come out when I drop my phone, but they are usually not found in stores any more. But the regular ones are ok. I find Skull Candy ones last longer without shorting out when the cords get tangled. BUT the Skull Candy ones with the flat ribbons DO short out easier than the ones with the skinny round cords.

    No bass but okay for audio books, etc.

    Not great sound, no bass for example. I use them mostly for podcasts while on a walk or bike ride so they're good enough for that. I got these because my headphones usually have coords that get bent near the jack often enough that after a while they start to crackle and cut-out. I have to replace them in a year or so and that's why I no longer get expensive (good) ones for this use. Difficult to see the 'L' or 'R' on the inside edge of the headphone just where the coord comes out so I added a dot with a silver marker to make it easy to figure out at a glance.

    Picked up a pair of these for myself and one for the wife and was really disappointed. For me they were an everyday set - home, work, commute. Just about three months in they stopped working randomly. I used them on the train going to work, paused my podcast to get an egg sandwich and then when I went to unpause - nothing. My wife uses her pair just to listen to music while she sleeps and they have also been giving her problems. Really bummed at how crappy these turned out. Won’t ever buy SkullCandy headphones again.

    I've had many pairs of these and they do have decent sound for the price. The problem I run into with these are; no.1. I use these with my iPad and the inline button will sometimes activate by itself causing the music player to start or if I'm watching a video it may pause/play randomly. It's happened with other pairs so it's some kind of hardware/software incompatibility bug maybe. No.2. The jacket on the wire is made out of the kind of rubberized product that grabs material easily. If you are aware of this you can work with it to keep it from yanking the buds out of your ears.

    I really like these headphones. I've purchased them multiple times now. They are long lasting and can take the abuse from being jostled around in my purse every day. They have good sound quality for the price. The only thing that I have a love/hate relationship with is the on/off button on the cord. I like it when listing to music/podcasts at work when I need to quickly turn off my iPod, but sometimes when the headphones are still connected to my iPod in my purse the button will hit and my ipod will start playing and I'll lose my place. It will turn the Ipod on/off regardless if the ipod is locked or not.

    I have always liked the Skullcandy earbuds. I think they sound great for the price they go for. The sound is a little on the deep side though. One of my complaints is that the mic doesnt have volume buttons, but you can still control the music. Second they only last me about 6 months and I have to get new ones. The right or left bud starts to fail. Maybe its the way I use them (concealed under shirt) and the wire gets pulled. I noticed these have a flat wire. Maybe that will make a difference. I got them because they were on sale on Black Friday and to me sound better than the ones that come with the iphone.

    each of us has our own pair in different colors to suit our taste and style. they are the most durable of many other earbuds we have gone through, literally more than 20 kinds including the over the ear made by skull candy. they are light, fit snugly in ears because they come with a variety of ear buds in different sizes. don't fall out while running, laying on pillow , or get caught in hair like the hook around ear types do. because they are small and light the wiring doesn't break as easily or get caught on objects when bending over. snug fit blocks out extraneous noise and doesn't require constant adjusting

    Okay, so I'm on my second pair of earbuds of this same style. The first pair I bought in August and they started cutting out in Late Jan/Early Feb, which is about what I expect at this price point. I gave them a lot of use (multiple hours, every day), both as my headset with my PS4, on my phone while making calls, and listening to music on my iPhone. The sound is great, and those I was talking to couldn't tell the difference between when I was on these earbuds vs my Playstation Gold headset. As these are my second pair, I will definitely buy another when this pair goes out.

    These head phones sound like I'm in a tunnel when I have them on. It's almost as if the music is further away from where I am. I have had other skull candy headphones that do not sound this way. And when I use them for talking on my cell phone (they have a mic on them) I have to take one ear out because they make me sound so loud to myself. It's exactly as if I plugged both ears with my fingers and started talking. I'm not sure how to decipher which Skull Candy earphones would do this and which would not. I'll take my chances, I guess.

    Got these earbud headphones and they are great for the money. They happened to be on sale at the time. They have held up in weekly workouts in the gym with no problem. Is the sound quality as good as $150 headphones--of course not. But they are plenty good enough and if they are lost no big deal. The color is a little bit funky but what do you expect from SkullCandy. They appear well made. If you want $150 headphones go get them but if you want a great deal on good ones buy these and keep the rest of the money in the bank. I ordered online at BB and it was quick and painless.
