Excerpt: This is a HUGE step up from the ipod headphones or the cheap plastic ones you get free with an mp3 player. The soft cushioning that you put in your ear feels so much better and allows the phones to get in there comfortably. You don't have to worry about adjusting them one way or another.
Skullcandy Asym Headphones - Great budget headphones
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I picked up a pair of these at my local Marshall's for $12.99. It was somewhat of an impulse buy (I found it while waiting in line), but I'm glad I picked them up. Very decent sound quality with just the right amount of bass. I like to listen to a lot of electronic music from house to dubstep and these work very well. There are two things that I really like about these earbuds: 1.
Excerpt: My 7 year old daughter received the Skull Candy S2ASBIBZ Headphones for Christmas to replace her MP3 player headphones that broke. I bought this set because I got a great deal on them and Skull Candy has a reputation for making quality headphones. My daughter absolutely loves these headphones! I'm starting to wonder if they are attached to her ears!
Excerpt: I am a big fan of Skullcandy headphones, they were the first really comfortable pair of headphones that I had ever gotten. Since my first experience with the Skullcandy buds I have purchased about 5 pair of them for various devices including my Nintendo DS. I found these at a bargain price while searching for a phone headset. The quality is what I have come to expect from Skullcandy, very good quality for a great price. While I was intrigued by the "asym" shape of...
Summary: After only 6 months, the coating around the wire has cracked an inch from the right earbud. The crack didn't bother me too bad, until the sound went out. You can achieve sound if you hold the crack together, but unless you are only listening with one ear, they are worthless now. The skulls on the side of the earbud are wearing away and now look copper colored.
Summary: I love these because they are very comfortable, don't move easily, and they sound great. They do a good job of keeping external noise out, and if I'm around other people, they aren't audible to anyone but me. They came with several sizes of the rubber ear piece and fit well. The design allows me to use them for cycling, snowboarding, running, travel, whatever. They came with an awesome little semi-hard nylon case that keeps them protected and is small and easy to use.
Summary: Amazing sound quality but at first they were confusing to put on. After i got them on they kept falling out no matter what ear tip size i used. The out plastic just didn't fit in my outer ear. I just am not satisfied with the product.
Summary: I purchased these hoping they would fit into my little ears and even the smallest option is still way too large (and I'm not an abnormally small person). Because of the hassle of returns, I even tried shoving them in my ears and seeing if I could just get used to them. Unfortunately that was extremely uncomfortable, they kept falling out no matter what I tried, and the sound they produce is fair at best.
Summary: I purchased these because i have a horrible time with earbuds. They are only a little more comfortable than the other dozen or so that I have tried. Sound quality and everything else is AMAZING. They just irritate my ears.
