    Nice buds but flimsy cable

    Good sound and mic. Comfortable to wear but the cord seems pretty flimsy. Had a pair of Skill Candies 5 years ago and the cable was higher quality.

    Sound quality is pretty good but the cable is very thin and gets tangled very easily, I like the sound quality but spend 2 minutes untangling them everytime I want to use them.

    The wiring comes undone, so they have to be replaced frequently.

    Great sound but there is a lot of noise coming from the wires when it is brushed up against anything (clothes, bag,seat), If you don't move it much it does sound great but not useful when used while exercising.

    Decent Earbuds

    These earbuds put out a good range of sound with enough bass to keep you going on your workouts. the cord can get hung up every now and then, but much better than cheaper buds I've owned.

    They stopped working like a short in the wire the first day I got them. I've been working so haven't even gotten a chance to return them yet, but I was disappointed because I liked the design.

    They sound great, they look great, the mic sounds good. Only thing is after about like 5 months of use the wires get messed up and they ruin the headphones but Skull candy has a 2 year warranty so if they break they can send you new ones and if the new ones break after 5 months you can get another one.

    You get what you pay for with these earbuds. The button on the wire tends to wear out.

    Annoyingly large ear component

    The weight of the earbuds is annoyingly too heavy and the units fall out of your ears quite readily. And I don't favor the ribbon cord as it has a mind of its own.

    Good earphones for younger sports people. Too much wear and tear takes a toll on the wires connecting the earphones to the device.

    I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because the cable was a bit short compared to others. However, the sound quality is great.

    Nice ear piece flimsy cord

    Nice ear pieces that sound well but the cord is very thin like a twist tie. Not a lot of confidence on longevity.

    Great for the gym, just relaxing, only complaint is the wires sometimes get a bit tangled. Great bass, and isolation of sound.

    Was really looking forward to giving them to my 16 yr old son. But 1 week into the use he came and showed me that the wires were sticking through the cord causing it to stop working then.

    For some reason these don't last long and the earbuds are a bit uncomfortable because of how they're angled. The sound quality is fine but the product itself needs improvement. The cord seems to be easily broken.

    Very noisy headphones

    The sound quality overall is good as long as you do not move or turn your head. The Wire tends to bump around and make a lot of noise so if you want to use these during physical activity like running or at the gym expect a lot of bangs and bumps. But if you're just chilling listening to music being lazy and a couch potato... You'll be fine

    These are OK for sound but quality isn't any better than the cheaper ones. The ear buds themselves tear apart pretty quickly followed by the wires loosening or shredding no matter how careful you are. Save some money and get the cheaper ones they'll last just as long.
