    Fantastic ear buds

    I've been buying SkullCandy ear buds for a long time, and the Smokin' Buds have always been my personal favorite. The one thing I always got annoyed with was that the way they fit was snug, but got uncomfortable. The re-designed shape of the Smokin' Buds 2 make them the most comfortable, best sounding, and most practical and reasonably priced ear buds I've tested out. By far the best ear buds under $50, and even give the $150-$200 Beats ear buds competition in sound quality and comfort--not so much in bandwagon branding.

    Saved a lot of money

    The cord's material is attracted to everything however, it's not the end of the world. You just have to find ways to keep it from getting caught onto other things. Overall, I saved money because I was about to fork over $50 from the same brand to be able to find some earbuds that fit and won't fall out my ears easily. I actually picked these up because I was exchanging through geek squad protection plan. These are the newer model. In the end it's exactly what I was looking for in earbuds without spending extra money.

    Got these as my expensive ones keep breaking at the 1/8 adapter. Got them for $30 and I'd say 7.5/10. Sound quality isnt amazing but they do have some decent range with good low bass during shows or music. They definitely stay in your ear comfortably for hours instead of most of these type of headphones. I would definitely recommend them if you're just looking for an all around decent pair that you don't worry about breaking in 6 months.

    I have a few other pair of skulllcandy ear buds that i purchased in the past and I like that they seem to hold up well. We have beat ear buds also however one of the sides no longer work on the beats buds. I was going to replace them with the same but saw some decent reviews on these so I picked a pair up not expecting much since they are so much less expensive. They have surprisingly decent sound quality and i love the smaller earpieces that come with them, Plus they just look cool!

    Amazing headphones.. I Love #SkullCandy better than any overpriced headphones. But one thing I noticed they change the appearances of the headphone.. my first smoking buds2 has a L form 3.5mm jack... then i replaced it with the same model.. I got it out of the box.. the L jack is gone.. pls bring the L jack back. thank you.. Over all I love this headphones.

    Skull Candy headphones aren't your high end headphones, but they have some great sound. Mid and highs are clear, while the bass hits. It's not powerful, but it does fill out the sound well. I also like the little package for storage, but it's a bit cumbersome to get the headphones back into. Also, the style of ear pieces that it comes with is a bit lacking as there's only two different sets, small and medium. If you have larger canals, you may need to buy separate pieces.

    Good brand, bad purchase

    I'm not sure if I just got a bad set of head phones or if they are all prone to this, but after just one week I started hearing crackling. I've also recorded my voice with the microphone and it sounds like I'm a mile away no matter where I postition it. The design is suppose to help them stay in your ears better, but they actually come out of my head easier than my older, less expensive pair. I paid a little more and actually got less than what I already had.

    I was surprised with the level of performance

    I bought these ear buds to replace a pair that came with my MP3 player and I didn't want to spend a lot of money. With that in mind, these fit the bill very nicely. The level of performance I experienced was surprising. These ear buds have very good low and high end frequency response with a fairly flat center. These ear buds are also very comfortable; even when worn for longer periods. For the money, I believe these are a good value.

    I would compare these to the urBeats by Dre. They have great sound quality, and I like the little case it comes with. The case is very small, so you really have to cram the headphones in. My only complaint it if you have the volume low, you can hear the cord jiggle around and hit things. I love this brand. I have used other headphones and never had an issue. I think it's just the design of the cord, but if you turn it up just a little more, you won't hear it.

    Sound good but no 90° jack

    I learned a long time ago to always buy ear buds with a 90-degree Jack. not a straight jack because the straight ones always tend to have problems. butt the customer representative at Best Buy told me that these one's were the one's with 90-degree Jack. but they do not have a 90-degree Jack they have a straight Jack. When you look up this model number of earbuds online it shows you a picture of them with a 90-degree Jack so it's a little frustrating

    I bought these ear buds to replace an old pair my puppy ruined. I didn't spend much effort researching options, but picked these up to replace the old, thinking they would be adequate. I was pleasantly surprised to plug these in for the first time and hear how much better the sound was from my old ear buds. For the cost you can't go wrong here. These earbuds also have a slightly offset design which allows them to sit snugly and very comfortably.

    Great For Bass Fiends

    So to start off, I was impressed by the sound that these buds put out right out of the box. Super smooth, clear, and the bass is on the dance club level! Once I moved to different genres of music I wasn't as pleased with them because the bass was way too overpowering. Constructionally they are well built with a flat wire and ergonomic buds that slip in you're ears like a glove on the hand. I wish they included more ear tips, but its a good deal for $30.

    Okay ill say it, these earbuds simply sound amazing! Im not the type of guy to write reviews but for 20$ I couldn't help myself. I had to inform others on how great they are. Don't let the other reviews fool you these are great! Durable, Sound fantastic! They're loud as need be. Comfortable and everything you need for earbuds plus an in line mic. Only thing missing is a next and backward button along the inline mic but besides that the sound is 10/10

    Skullcandy's Smokin' Buds 2 are great headphones. The sound is very good and they have a great aesthetic appeal. The only thing I can say is that they are in-ears and not earbuds which I don't find comfortable at all. Unfortunately the only two choices you have for earbuds are Apple's expensive products or Gummy's very low quality headphones. These Smokin' Buds however are a of high quality and if you like in-ears they are a great purchase for the price.

    Typical - Your son has torn up his earbuds and its critical that he has a new pair... So, I'm standing in front of the rack of earbuds trying to determine the "Best Buy". After looking through nearly all of the selection, my son says "That the pair my buddy at school has and their great". I check the price and say, "here you go. Let's go up front and pay". Yes, I got the "Thanks" and a big smile!

    I already have a pair of red/black ones that I use when running or working out and really like the quality of the material & sound. When I was in the market to buy another pair of earbuds for leisurely use, Skullcandy was definitely one of the first brands I looked to. I found this pair with such a unique color combination and had to have it! It has the same great sound quality as my first pair. Great for songs with a strong bass!

    Not as good as the cheaper ones

    Do not spend the extra money on these, they do not provide the premium sound they say they do. It is fine, it does what it is supposed to but by the cheaper version for $15. These do not have the bass that the cheaper versions do and they give off way too much treble so at higher volumes it hurts my ears. I would take them back if I could, I just have to eat the $34, I do not recommend and will not purchase again.

    I received these for my birthday last year, they work perfectly, great sound, the Mic is in a perfect spot to pick up everything. The calls are clear on both ends. Audio is crisp and has perfect stereo sound! These are built to last, most are broken within a few months but not these! You will not be disappointed!!

    I bought these as a replacement for a pair of Skullcandys I lost. I decided on these because of the price and design. For ear buds they have a very nice fit and stay in place. More importantly they sound great for thirty dollars. I would have bought the $49 pair, but that was more than I wanted to spend at the moment. The two cons are they don't have volume control and the carrying case for them suck. A little pouch would have been better.

    Decent product for purchase on sale

    This is a decent product, for a sale price. I wouldn't want to spend too much on them. Picked up the earbuds quickly, when I'd left mine at home. They were on sale and I've heard people talk about skull candy. They definitely did the job. Thankful to now have a "back up" set of earbuds. However, they don't stay in my ears very well, fell out easily. And the sound quality wasn't as good as I'd hoped for. But! All in all, decent product.
