    Earphones made for a basshead

    I have always used Skullcandy earphones since I was in high school and that's been since 2007. These were made for the person that loves music with lots of bass. Rap, Hip-Hop, Trap, Dubstep, Heavy Metal, etc. these earphones bring the music to life!! the bass response is so good and rich it feels like you have over-the-ear headphones. They also come with a smaller ear cups for smaller ears and the noise cancellation is pretty awesome for an earphone piece. The only drawback that I have ever had with these is the jack that connects to your device. the wire itself is really flexible but at the base of the jack where the wire portion ends is where they start to fail after being wrapped around your device several times. This was probably only my issue because id take the bus to school and as soon as Id get to class i'd wrap the earphones around my ipod (ya im that old) but if you disconnect them from the jack and store them they should last you a good while. Mine would last me a year or so but still theyre really good for a pair of earphones and despite that jack problem, these are the ONLY earphones I buy. apple earphones are cheap quality and these just bring music to life. get these.

    Bought these since I wore out the stock headset that came with my Galaxy S3. I go though headphones like a kid does with shoes. Shopped these in the BB location, and was hesitant to purchase, since there was no info on the Frequency response range on the drivers. But, I had some store credit to use from my REWARDS POINTS and thus, I couldn't beat the price. They are comfortable with the stock pads, but they only came with one other size of ear pads. That means if you have an ear that won't fit the pads, you're out of luck. Mine fit OK, but I was hoping for another set of sizes to get an optimal fitting. My fears of sound quality were quickly resolved upon playing an MP3. These babies sound GREAT! The songs I would play that have high dynamic range couldn't make these headphones sound bad at all. The microphone also sounds great (I'm judging only from my phone calls and not getting negative feedback from my contacts). I only wished that the set had a volume control for up and down, not just one button to answer/play/stop. Volume control, like the set that came with my phone, was a nice feature and I miss it. The 'no tangle' flat cord however, IS AWESOME. I rarely have to worry about the cord getting tangled with itself no matter how poorly I stuff 'em into my pocket. I used to 'tie a knot' with my headset to keep them from getting tangled, but NO MORE! Just wrap 'em 'round yer fingers, stuff 'em and pull 'em out later for jammin'. NO Tangle. And the cord length is great, so pocket the player and stroll on. I'm borderline abusive to headphones, but so far so good, no complaints there. 'nuff said 'bout that. If you can tolerate the limited ear pad size and no volume control, these buds are a decent purchase. There is plenty out there for a better price, or certainly better quality, but the positives out weigh the negatives for the price. Twenny bucks gets your ears poppin' with these headphones. I recommend.

    Nice pair of cheap earbuds

    I bought these after needing to replace my last two pairs of more expensive earbuds. I had to replace my previous ones because the plastic cushion bit that sit on the earphone often fell/came off, and as a result lost the pieces over time making them useless. So this was an obvious concern when I bought these Skull Candy Earbuds. The plastic ear cushions are well attached to the earbud, and don't really seem like they are going to come off as easily, which is great! The mic/control device are basic (less advanced then more expensive units, but that is okay). The mic works just fine. The controls are basic and work fine with my iPhone, easily pause, play, skip songs, etc. No volume control though, which my more expensive headphones had, miss that feature, but for the price who cares. So...when these things are not in your ear they are pretty loud. If you like blasting your music, people around you might hear what you are listening to, but if you care just turn the volume down haha. The sound quality is fine for everyday listening, great for the bus, gym, work, etc. The bass could be better, wouldn't recommend for an audiophile (probably wouldn't be reading this anyway). Cord is a good length, seems durable, and tangle resistant, which is nice. Overall the design is fine, seems pretty durable, have had them for a few months, stepped on them, got them a wet (whoops), regular wear are tear, and they still work the same as the day I got them.

    People want quality headphones with a quality sound. We use our headphones for listening to music whether we are exercising, riding the bus, going to class, etc. People want quality headphones with a quality sound for a decent price, so that is exactly what skull candy made. Skully Candy Ink’d 2. The ink’d 2 headphones are slightly heavy, but has its own volume adjustment to make up for that. Another reason for these headphones being heavy is the length of the cord, but cord length comes in handy at times. These headphones come in four different colors. Black, blue, pink, or red. Plus two ear insert sizes that came in handy for me. My ears are smaller and had to put the smaller size in. The cord on the headphones is very long and can get in the way if not secured or would up properly. I usually have no problem with this if I wrap the cord around my phone a few times. These headphones seem to be made with great quality. I have stepped on them many times and even washed them and they still work fine! They are cheap! I bought these for 20 dollars at best buy and have great sound quality. You will not find a pair of headphones for 20$ or less that sound this good! You will not be disappointed! If you are looking for a cheap quality pair of headphones, these are the ones for you!

    I have been using skull candy earphones for years. Mainly for around-the-house work, or to not annoy people while messing around on my devices. I had the Smokin' Buds and those were great, but I realized that I shouldn't keep spending $30 every year or so to replace them. So i gave these a try. Theyre pretty great for $10! Fitment is mediocre, but I didnt put much effort into choosing the right silicone tips since I use these in low impact environments. Sound quality is pretty much what you'd expect from skull candy. Good bass with average mids and highs. They have a play/pause button on the left wire, if you need or want that sort of thing. I'm pretty sure that that same controller has a microphone for phone calls, too. Downsides? I'm not sure how long they'll last. But for $10 I'm not too worried about breakage. The aux jack doesnt have a right angle like the smokin buds do -- thats just a minor personal issue. Thats about it so far. Good value for money.

    I bought these for my son because he destroys every pair of earbuds and headphones I buy him. The size of the earpieces and the softness are very comfortable for him. He likes the built in microphone. The only complaint that I have is the same one I have with EVERY wired set- the thin wire is not protected enough near the plug and after a while one of the wires start to break, causing one side to lose sound. These are relatively new and should have lasted longer for the price. I wrapped the wire and plug with electrical tape for reinforcement and got the sound back. I would recommend doing this FIRST if you are giving these to a kid, especially if they are going to use them with multiple devices. An adult should have no problem with them. He says the sound quality is great so they must be good.

    I use these headphones for my daily run. I go through 3-4 headphones a year due to water or sweat shorting them out. For just 20 quids what would you expect? Ink'd 2 is well produced, and they look better then some other models in 50-100 range. But accessories in the box ... no accessories at all. Just a second pair of earbuds and manual. During first test I realized absence of high frequencies, but very nice mids and sharp, deep bass. So I decided to warm them up for few hours. And it did a trick! After warm up they started to produce some not-so-bad highs! Anyway, eq preset has been changed to add more 16k-20k and to reduce 60-200 Hz. After JBL, Sony earphones it was first time when I was forced to reduce bass! Impressive! Ink'd 2 are well designed, good quality, with nice, deep bass, very good mids, but high frequencies could be slightly better (for another price though), and those earphones good choice for music with rich bass - electronic, jazz and probably rock.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The sound quality of these earbuds are excellent. Extremely clear sound that does a great job of blocking out surrounding noise. I also enjoy the fact that the wire contains a button that allows you to change tracks without touching the device, as well as the microphone that's attached to it. It makes for great convenience to respond calls when using the earbuds, especially while participating in fitness-related activities. My main complaint is that these earbuds are not very durable. This is my second pair of these, and one of the earbuds has worn out rather quickly both times. The microphone being placed rather high on the wire can also be inconvenient at times when exercising, especially if engaging in activities that are more strenuous than usual.

    Excellent sound quality for an affordable price

    I have bought these headphones before, and they are probably the best sound quality you could find if you are looking to spend less than $30. They fit into your ear very well and stay in snug without falling out, the earbud clicker can pause or play your music without you having to reach for your device, and they are lightweight and do not get tangled easily. The color is also great because you can tell the left and right buds apart. The only downside to these is that the cord is needlessly long, which can be a pain to adjust to the length that's right for you. I've been using twist ties to coil the bottom end, but I don't know if that's necessarily foolproof. Still, these are probably the best quality ones you can find for the price.

    I go through a lot of headphones. I own one high end pair for when I travel and then I have another everyday use pair. These Skullcandy are that pair. I am impressed the build quality and sound quality as well. The tangle free cord is actually very good as well. But what will really set them apart is how long they last. The sound is better than I expected from the price point. The fit in my ears is good. I have yet the need to use the in-line microphone so can't say anything about that. I like the warranty and as long as I do not abuse them, I expect that Skullcandy will honor it if in 4 months (as it has happened with so many others), one side stops working. Overall I recommend and will update this review once I have had a chance to use them a lot longer.

    Have purchased several SkullCandy headphones in the past year. They offer solid, rich sounds for the prices paid--don't expect Bose sound for the price you're paying, remember that you get what you pay for. That being said, I've had two pairs of this style where the earbud has separated from the wires. This is partly a user error, but I will state that in both incidents, less than 5 lbs of force was applied (earbuds wrapped around a cell phone in a back pocket, separation occurred as the cell phone brushed against something in passing). I rate 4/5 because as long as you provide care in using these, they will last just fine. But their delicacy warranted a star deduction.

    Love the sound. Not the most reliable. This is about the 4th pair I have owned. If they fail, I visit vendor website for a return authorization which has always been promptly handled . I like to keep a backup pair on hand when I lose a pair or am waiting for vendor replacement. I love the rubber tips ; much better than the firm ones Apple supplies with the I Phone along with superior sound quality. Comfort and fit are much better. Drowns out the annoying music played in the gym. I used solely in the gym. I use about 5-10 hr/wk so I am disappointed in reliability. I usually have to replace within 6 months of first use. But manufacture offers lifetime warranty with easy return/replace

    For the price, these are great headphones. I bought the red and black one for my boyfriend, and I just had to get them for myself. The reason why I won't give it five stars is because I don't like that the 'skip' button doesn't work while I'm using Pandora. I've had other earphones in the past that worked just fine for it, and they were cheaper than these. All it does it play/pause, even when double pressing. If that sort of thing doesn't bother you and it's not needed, then I would suggest getting these earphones, but if you use Pandora pretty often, just remember that it doesn't skip songs with the button. I doubt that I got a broken set of earphones, I've read other reviews and they had the same issue.

    I've had other skullcandy headphones in the past that did the job of transmitting music from a device to my ears until the headphones no longer worked due to a short in the cord or whatever over reason you can think of. These headphones, same company, but so far different result. Decent sound for the money I spent. The headphones feel sturdy, the cable feels more durable, and the mic transmits my voice well when I am using the phone or recording a memo. One thing I would change is the l lack of volume adjustment from the headphones. Although this could he an Android issue, but I don't think you can change the volume from the headphone in line control like you can with other headphones.

    These are the best head phones money can buy ,because of cost ,and quality. They always break though ,so they don't last ,but no ear phones ever last forever ,and they are so easy to lose ,but since I get the best buy affordable insurance every time I buy them I get another one to replace the ones that break. It's not so much the head phones that are breakable ,but I step on them. I'm clumsy. I leave it in the door. I ran then in my pocket ,but out of everything I've ever used in my whole life these are the best especially with the insurance I buy through Best Buy. Thank you Best Buy for doing one thing great. Now work on getting some affordable high definition TVs at such value.
