Excerpt: If you're not too much of a stickler about sound quality these are good. They are cheap and so you don't have to worry about breaking them or loosing them. Its not audiophile quality sound, but you should know that when buying them. They sound pretty good, enough for listening to music on a train or subway, and doing phone calls, Skype etc.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Value, Lightweight
Excerpt: Not great sound, no bass for example. I use them mostly for podcasts while on a walk or bike ride so they're good enough for that. I got these because my headphones usually have coords that get bent near the jack often enough that after a while they start to crackle and cut-out. I have to replace them in a year or so and that's why I no longer get expensive (good) ones for this use.
Excerpt: These Skull Candy Ear Buds serve their purpose. They have great sound and are light weight. They are easily folded up and put in pocket or purse for storage. Comfortable in ears with no problems.
Summary: The sound is pretty good but hey would not stay in my ears. I wanted to use these while running and I had to keep stopping and screwing them back into my ears. Pretty frustrating. I'll use these for my cell phone instead.
Excerpt: Inexpensive ear buds with modest sound. As I use them daily, these break about once every 6 months. I keep a spare on hand and order a new one once the primary breaks. Failure mode is loss of sound on one side. Variable product designs sometimes come with annoying microphone, lack of cable clip, etc. Again these are cheap and just okay. I prefer them to more expensive set because they are expendable.
Excerpt: Compared to the earbuds that came with my Sansa Clip+, these have better quality wiring and somewhat better sound, but I don't find them as comfortable to wear, nor do they stay as firmly in my ear.Very competitive price.
