Summary: Still use them now after 2 years of purchasing. Sizing makes a difference, very comfortable and completely block out any surrounding noise. unfortunately they do let out sound from whatever you are listening to.
Summary: These were ordered for my daughter who is happy with them but said the music does not come through them very loudly when used with her laptop, phone or iPod. This may be intentional to save kid's ear drums being damaged.
In my opinion the excellent sound quality makes up for the faults.

Excerpt: I used to wear only in-ear headphones, but had problems with getting them to actually stay in my ear so switched to over-ear headphones instead. The Skullcandy Lowriders were the first over-ear headphones I bought, so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised.
Summary: Got this for my daughter's birthday, but while it works ok with her ipod nano, it does not work with her phone which was a major reason for buying it. Tested the headphones on a Nokia and a Samsung smart phone and they don't work with either of them.
