Excerpt: (1 items) The iPhone FMJ is the iPhone-headset version of Skullcandy's $60 Full Metal Jacket. Available in matte black, brushed chrome, and polished silver, the iPhone FMJ's aluminum earpieces use a unique design that's thin at each end but fairly wide in the middle. Some people may find that this wider section helps keep the earpiece in the ear; others may find it uncomfortable.
Excerpt: I love it when I get a product to test that goes with one of my favourite gadgets, the iPhone. The headphones that come with the iPhone are OK, not a bad sound and the mic is useful if you don’t have hands free. These new iPhone headphones from Skullcandy, the Skullcandy iPhone FMJ headphones are an ideal partner for your iPhone.
Excerpt: (6 items) Upgrading your iPod’s headphones is the easiest way to improve your on-the-go music listening. But when it comes to the iPhone , upgrading isn’t as simple a task, because the iPhone’s stock earbuds are more than just headphones. They include an inline microphone for talking on the phone, and an inline controller for taking and ending calls and for basic music-playback control.
Conclusion: Skullcandy's iPhone FMJ earphones are on the lower end of the earbud-upgrade spectrum in terms of price and overall quality, but they work well with the iPhone and deliver respectable audio that doesn't distort at higher volumes.
Pros: Affordable. Works with iPhone for answering and placing calls. A big step up from Apple's bundled earbuds. Blocks out some outside noise.
Cons: Audio quality is adequate but by no means excellent. Skull-embazoned design isn't for everyone.
Summary: The Skullcandy iPhone FMJ is a good set of noise-isolating earbuds with the added benefit of iPhone compatibility and an in-line mic and call button. We wish the mic was more accurate and the sound better balanced, but the FMJ’s comfort and beefy bass will satisfy casual listeners.
Pros: Strong bass, Comfortable, Decent isolation,
Cons: Button is difficult to find by touch, Mic doesnt block wind noise well,
