Summary: Ok where to start... I picked these up on sale for 20 bucks. I expected a bit from them since Skullcandy says they are worth $69.99. Let me tell you they are absolutely not worth that.... The monoprice 8320's sound much better than these so imho they are worth about 5 bucks.
The bass is distorted and boomy. It overpowers everything and it is not clean at all. You can't even hear drum beats... All you hear is a boom where a nice solid tight drum hit should be.
Pros: Fit well, Come with decent carrying case.
Cons: Distorted bass, recessed mids, harsh treble and no detail, cheap cables and construction.
Good sound. Only worth what they cost on discount.

Summary: First time I've bought Skullcandy product and only did so as very reduced price. I usually use Sennheiser but my last ones failed after only six months. The Skullcandy ones have a good enough sound quality but their general construction is pretty poor given their RRP. Cheap looking white plastic ear pieces and controls and doesn't look great with the black cables. Worse thing about these earphones is they irritate your ears.
Summary: I am very displeased with this set of earphones but I'll start off with the positives. The build quality of the earphones was very nice. I particularly liked the headphone jack which doesn't seem to bend at a right angle too easily and cause one ear phone to stop working after a while. I personally found the earphone design to fit well and as the name of the product suggests, it does stay fixed.
Summary: they look cheap (well now they are cheap-ish at £20), sound cheap, feel cheap. Tacky red plastic doesn't look or feel good. Cable kept getting tangled. no noise isolation what so ever, not much bass either. Finally got Soundmagic E10M from ebay for same £20 (regular price is closer to £40) and the difference is simply insane in all aspects: build, looks, sound quality. Ended up costing me twice as much for trying to save in the first place, don't do the same mistake.
Summary: When I got these I plugged them into my phone and noticed one very prominent problem: the vocals were played as backing music and backing music was played as vocals, making my music very distorted i.e. lyrics inaudible as annoying bass guitar loud in my ears. I decided to put up with this but then, two hours later, right earbud stopped working! Seller was quick to respond and I sent them back immediately, still waiting for a reply though. good seller, poop headphones.
Summary: I bought a pair of these two weeks ago. Once I messed around with the EQ settings on my iPod they sounded very good, bass was good and they provided a clear sound.The mic is very useful for when you're out and about and the case is a cool little thing to have. However, the build quality is obviously bad because mine have already broke, the bass has completely gone from the left ear.
