Excerpt: We tested two models from Skullcandy, the 50/50s and the Fix. These 50/50s , the cheaper of the two, are sort of half way between in-ear headphones and traditional earbuds, and they provide decent sound for a decent pricetag ($40).
Excerpt: Skullcandy 's website might lead you to believe it’s preoccupied with courting the ‘yoof’ demographic, but in practice these 50/50 in-ears will appeal to anyone in the market for a well-made, exciting-sounding and comfortable pair of ’phones. There’s a caveat, of course: a rather lop-sided sound does for the 50/50s. It’s plumply bass-heavy, exerting a squeeze on the otherwise enjoyable midrange.
