      I use this daily.

      Just to provide a simple background of who I am and what I have experience with to help you get a clearer picture of who is reviewing this product: I've purchased quite a few headphones/earbuds during my existence on this planet; from Sony to Sennheiser to Souls, from over the head cans to in ear buds. I have a home studio where I have a pair of ATHM-50's and Sennheiser HD 203's for recording and have a pair of Soul SL150's, SMS Street by 50's, Soul SL49's, and Sony XB500's for casual listening. SOUND: 3/5 I purchased these Skullcandy's from Radioshack for $17.99 for the simple fact my earbuds I used with my work computer broke and just wanted a cheap replacement. After 2 weeks of burn in and listening, I will say that these earbuds are at most, average. The bass, although not overpowering, is very present and handled very well. The highs and the treble is where in my honest opinion, these earbuds fall short. These earbuds produce very HARSH highs to the point where I cannot listen to the song. Besides the harsh highs though, everything else is pretty good, especially for the price point. DESIGN: 4/5 As far as I've tested, the microphone works very well and the headset is pretty clear when I'm on the phone. I really love the cord design (flat# and the earbuds themselves are plastic and are EXTREMELY light. I find a light weight ear bud to be very favorable, i.e. my Soul SL49 which I must say are the BEST sounding earbuds on the market right now, fall short in one area and that is the earbuds are so heavy, they tend to fall out quite frequently. I love the ability to pause and play music with the remote on the cord but it's missing a volume control. You can wear these for hours without any sort of nagging or pain-very comfortable. To summarize, I always HATED the Skullcandy brand and vowed to NEVER purchase any Skullcandy products but because of the reduced price point at the time, I gave in. Initially when looking at this brand, you can't take it seriously because of the name and logo #at least I couldn't) but I must say, coming from a negatively biased point of view towards this audio brand, they are pretty average earbuds and I would recommend this specific product to people looking for a cheap pair of earbuds with a mic for handsfree control on your iPhone or Droid device. A better alternative if you are looking for AMAZING sound are the Soul SL49 which I got for $35. Just look around.

      Really? Don't see the issues of others having!


      This one ear going out, NOT! Had for 2 years, and still going strong. Not being durable? Look at second sentence. So many terrible reviews for an awesome pair of earphones, that do not break at all, unless you are careless with your stuff, then blame the company. I have had cheap earbuds that sound 100 times worse around $5 to the $15 I paid for these. I even used a gift card from Christmas, paid for Smokin Buds, and yes Smokin Buds are awesome too, but the bass is not there on Smokin Buds like these Ink'd 2 ones. Ink'd 2 are 103db while Smokin Buds are like 96db. Smokin Buds are $29.99 but got for $19.99 on sale. I paid $14.99 for Ink'd 2. I take the bass over the not so bassy ones. So I will leave the Smoking Buds on the side for backup, and use Ink'd 2 ones for long time until they do go out on me. I think they sound awesome for how much bass they have. No adjusting bass at all if you have the right preset on the equalizer. Like Poweramp app has Bass & Treble. Maybe not fully updated to V3 of Poweramp yet, but beta is about to be released around April 29th or 30th, 2018. Best player for smartphones. So I do recommend using these, and if you go for more expensive Skullcandy ones, then try something besides Smokin Buds. I go on walks for about 3 hours plus a day 6 days a week because I am diabetic.

      Didn't work in phone/only 2 pr of ear gels, not 3


      I bought these to use with my Samsung Galaxy and, right out of the pack, they were defective. The connector wasn't snug enough in my phone port so sound only came from one side of the earbuds instead of both. If I pressed the connector in further, twisted it around some, and held it in place then both sides worked but as soon as I let it go, it stopped working on both sides and again only worked on one side; the side with the control on it. I have other earbuds (JVC, Sony, Samsung) and have no problem with them working correctly with my phone so I know it's not my phone. I've also purchased these SkullCandy Ink'd earbuds before and have never had a problem with them so I know they'll also work with my phone, if they're not defective. .....I called Skullcandy and the guy I talked to wasn't the least bit concerned with my problem, or the fact that they were manufacturing a defective product. $10 product or $100 product, a customer is a customer. I've worked all my life dealing with people. His attitude likely costs the company more than a few customers. I won't purchase their brand again. Lastly, the 'product features' states that these come with "...3 different-size silicone ear gels..." when actually they only come with 2 different-size silicone ear gels: small and medium. I use the large, and they no longer include them with the earbuds. Overall, if they worked, I would say this was a good deal but since the design seems to be defective, and it's a pain to have to return them, I won't risk buying this brand again. Skullcandy used to offer a Lifetime Guarantee. Now its just 2 years. I'll stick with my JVCs. They're cheap too but I've had them for several years now and they're still working great!

      Pretty Dang Good for the price

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      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.

      Very Happy

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      I was in the market for new earbuds because I go through them quite often. I bought some Sony ones and I was very unsatisfied with the sound. Too tinny and annoying. So I walked past the Best Buy store at the mall and walked in expecting to by something that I have bought before (not Sony). As I looked through the options, I had kind of mentally selected what i was going to buy when a young lady approached me and asked if i needed help I told her that I was unhappy with my present earbuds and I was looking to get something better. I pointed out the ones that I had (kind of) planned on buying and she asked me questions about why I was unhappy with my present ones and how I would primarily use them. She then pointed to the earbuds that she thought would be best for me and I felt that they weren't and the ones that I had mentally selected were the ones I would buy. She very politely told me that, from her own experience, the other ones would be better for my purposes and her friends also had those as well. In fact, she guaranteed that I would be happy with those (by the way, there was no price difference so she wasn't trying to upsell). With her reassuring, calm and very polite manner, I took her word for them and I am sooooo glad that I purchased those. I am finally happy with earbuds and would purchase them again. I wish I could thank that young lady; She's a credit to your store;

      Poor speaker, poor connector, decent sound

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      I purchased the product from Allstate Rd, Dorchester, MA store and in less than a month, the earphones have started showing the signs of fatigue. If I touch the connector pin while listening to anything, I can hear the difference in the volume and its quality, the sound starts to break up. This happens often as I keep my phone in my pocket while listening to music like normal people do. The speaker on the headphone has given up on me already. I have to literally hold it like one centimeter away from my mouth for other person to listen to me. All of this in just 25 days of below regular use. I use these earphones only thrice a day for around 30 mins, and I keep them in my bag, in a separate compartment where these is only one other cable (of my charger), so I don't think there is a chance of any wear and tear in there. I know this problem about skullcandy earphones getting damaged early and easily but didn't expect to get the problems so soon! I have used another skullcandy earphones for around 9 months before it started giving me problems. And I have also talked with my friends who have used skullcandy earphones before so I was aware of this situation. And since they started showing problems after 15 days, I can't even return or exchange them. I won't recommend buying this one.

      Going to have to find a new dependable favorite

      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      I've purchased skull candy products over the years and have always had a good experience. Lower price point with beyond average quality and power. Recently I've been through 3 pairs of these ear buds and just haven't had any luck. The low price makes it enticing and delivers better quality than what you pay for, however the past year or so of ink'd models just don't hold up, I think because of this flat wire design. Basically one earbud will go dead after a few months, sometimes will crackle and/or the wire at the base erratically controls your play/pause feature just by simple movement. This wasn't an issue on older ink'd models that had your traditional "tube" wires. Overall, I'm a big fan of the quality of sound and price point, but they just don't last more than a few months. It's a bit of a tossup of being willing to suck it up and pay $20 every 3-5 months vs. paying $60-$100 and hope they aren't accidentally subjected to the bottom of a shoe or gym bag. Going to have to find a new dependable favorite.

      A great improvement from the older models.

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      A lot of people say skullcandy is not even a brand for earphone/headphones and they suck, well imo they are awesome. who can go wrong with $10-20 earphones that sound amazing!!!! comparing this to previous models, you can notice a difference in the treble. its a lot "louder" and nice. the has bass improved, it gives a little/tiny more bump than a thump. depending on the quality and type of music you are listening to. I have also notice that the cord is flat, so i tested it out to see if it would tangle, but!!! IT DIDNT! OMG :D!!!!!!! i tried it 5 times and it didnt tangle . i am really happy with these improvements. the sound is quality is also nice and balanced with the bass and tremble for most songs i have played. so if your thinking about getting these earphones . DO IT!! there amazing , Ive only had this product for about 3 hours* Skullcandy gives limited life time warranty* THanks for reading :D!!!
