Summary: Note; I have Not purchased or owned these headphones.
The other day I walked into Ron Jons Surf shop & while browsing the floors came across the Skullcandy demo station. What was interesting of course was the fact you could demo it using your own mp3 player, so I did that exactly. While shuffling through tracks & listening I couldnt bear the sound quality. even for $40 cans, its not worth it.
Summary: I bought a pair of these sweet babies from a local computer shop and I was the awesomest looking dude in the office for 6 months...
When I took them out of the case and put them on my head I felt instantly cheated. They were cheap and felt like children's toys. You know those $9.99 plastic headphone specials you find in sale bins at the local grocery store? These were exactly those but they looked sweet so that's worth something.
Summary: These are great. If you don't care about quality in sound or build.
I've had 2 pairs of these over the past 2 years. the first pair was replaced on warranty for the extenders for the ear cups coming off. The pair I'm stuck with for at least another week and a half have been taped together with electrical tape for the past 8 months. they break within just a few weeks.
The sound quality is ok if you're just looking for something to blast.
Summary: I picked these up just because at that time these would be my first set of over ear headphones. I also liked them for their looks. Honestly I wish I hadn't bought them. Lets see why.
At the time I bought them for $50. Looking back on it now I wish I hadn't payed that much. I feel like the headphones are actually worth around the $20 range.
Pros: Mildly comfortable
Cons: Sound was pretty bad, Easy to break, too expensive
Summary: the terrible plastic holding together the $60 pair I bought broke in several places, less than a month after the purchase. This has happened with every Skull-Candy product I have tried after taking fantastic care of each pair. Very cheaply made, not even close to being worth the price asked.
Several of my friends were drawn in as well by the bright colors and stylish graphics, and they all tell the same story. Every pair is cheaply made.

19 December 2014
Summary: I bought these as a birthday present for my 12 year old son. They lasted about 5 months before they broke. They are not built to last and they can't be returned as you have to send them back within a month which doesn't seem fair. Gimmicky.
