    Great product for a nice price. Only issue that I may have, like most headphones, is the length of the cable. Still, adequate for walking and going to the gym.

    Good headphones

    I like the angle of the headphones so they fit comfortably in my ears. The sound is good. I think they don't have the volume on the little control thing on the wire like other skull candy headphones I've had, just a start/stop button.

    Invest in a better pair

    My biggest complaint is that these transfer noise through the cord. Whenever the cord comes in contact with anything (my shirt, desk, etc.) I can hear it through the ear buds. Definitely not designed for the gym but still super annoying when using them for other purposes like with laptop use as well. They also fit more like earplugs, creating an odd artificial silence. Wish I had originally invested in a better pair.

    These worked great for a whole two months. First one ear bud quit working, then the other. Tried fiddling with the wires but nothing worked. Everything appeared intact. No fraying or unusual bending of the wires. Had hoped with the higher cost of these they would have lasted a little bit longer.

    The flat rubber cord is annoying, and amplifies noise every time it is bumped or snagged... which is often! The ends of the in-cord mic are square and flat and snag on every shirt collar, etc. ... ANNOYING! The in-line mic/pause button only pauses music! WTF.... NO skip forward/back option?! The sound is fine... otherwise, these headphones SUCK!

    Skullcandy is an amazing earbud for the price. I am replacing my Skullcandy earbud black that I had for five years because over time the wire broke from the ear piece. The sound has improved but the comfort is just as impressive. I liked this new model because of the colorful look, they will be much easier to find in my backpack. I would recommend to anyone who has difficulty with sensitivity or comfort from anything placed in your ear. The price is excellent for such great quality. I have recommended to friends and family and they too love the Skullcandy earbuds.

    Good Value for in-ear headphones

    Audio quality is nice for an in-ear headphone. Comes with two different size silicone earpieces for people who have smaller ear canals. These stay in nicely even when moving about a lot (I wear these while riding my bike off big jumps and over crazy stuff and they stay in). While you have them in, they're decently noice-insular as well. When I have them in it's nearly impossible to hear anything else. The only regret I have about these is that after a year or so of my 'abusive' usage, Skull Candy headphones tend to break by either blowing out or the wiring starts to tear out internally (falling off your bike while doing crazy things tends to break stuff). Overall they're great little headphones.

    Sounds great, lots of echo from cord though

    I love skullcandy products. This is my first pair of ear buds, and I love them. They sounds great. I would compare them to Beats urbuds because we have a pair of those as well. My only complaint is that of the volume is low, you can hear an echoing noise every time the cord touches something or bounces. The case is very tight, but the ear buds fit once you wrap them up. The cord controls are nice too. Great sounds quality!
