Summary: My view: Skullcandy is a private based american company which was founded in 2003, they sell various consumer electronics and sports accessories, today i am going to be reviewing a product in their headphone range, the skullcandy low riders, which i have had for around four to five months, i believe i paid around £25 for my pair from amazon.co.uk.
Pros: Stylish, compact, fold up, sound quality is great
Cons: feel flimsy, long period of use can cause them to feel uncomfortable
Skullcandy Lowrider: Looks or Quality, that is the real question

Summary: I am a huge fan of music, going to music festivals all around the UK, i want to try and get the best music experience i can. When it comes to listening to music on a portable device i want the sounds quality to be as good as i can get it. The skullcandy lowrider headphones provide you with an OKAY sound quality.
Excerpt: "...a while. There is a skullcandy logo visible on each of the bright pink 'ears'. I personally adore how neon these are and it contrasts well with the white of the cord and head band. The reason I went for this specific style is because they fold up easily, so they can be put in your bag without being awkward and taking up more space than necessary. They are quite comfortable over your head and ears, I haven't found a problem with these at all except ...
Pros: colour, sound quality, foldable
Cons: price can be much, but you get what you pay for
Excerpt: "...received the same pair of Skullcandy Lowrider headphones pictured for Christmas 2010 and I loved them until they broke after a few month's use. The sound quality is excellent and the sound is enclosed enough that not much escapes to escape your neighbours on the bus. The feature I really miss in comparison with my replacement headphones is their ultra portability. There are enough bends, joints and pivots to enable snug pocket storage when on the ...
Summary: I bought these headphones and I wish I hadn't of wasted my money. The headphones are stylish however do not provide much comfort when worn, and whilst I as using them they would constantly move even though they were adjusted to my size. I understand that you only got what you pay for but it found these headphones very plastic and not very good quality. The headphones do not produce a very good sound, the music sometimes very tinny and distant.
Summary: I bought these headphones for two reasons. 1. They're fairly inexpensive, and 2. They look cool. These two facts nearly make up for the inevitable fact that it: The sound quality is less than mediocre. If you're just looking for over-ear headphones that are bright colored to go with a wardrobe then these would be perfect, but if you're actually looking for sound quality then I would suggest choosing something that's higher end, like BoseTM.
Pros: Inexpensive, Color options, Fair sound quality
Summary: I've been lusting after these headphones for years but I'm a bit of a cheapskate. Recently I found myself drooling over them yet again on Amazon and ended up taking the plunge and buying a black pair with chrome detail despite the mixed reviews I had read. They arrived today and I was eager to try them out. Other reviews I have read state that the sound quality is great but they snap at the drop of a hat.
Pros: they look very sexy and the sound quality is good.
Cons: they feel like they were built from very cheap materials.
Excerpt: "...scheme run by Coca Cola. Skullcandy are a very popular brand among my friends and I have heard numerous recommendations about how good they are, so I was very happy with my freebie! The Skullcandy Lowrider headphones are available to buy through many electronics retailers, including Amazon where they are available for varying prices depending on colour etc. The RRP for this item is £39.99. Firstly, Skullcandy headphones are primarily about the ...
Excerpt: "...popular choice. These ones from skullcandy are a great addition to the over the ear range. With it being over the ear headphones it can block out more background noise, as the bits that go over your ear cover the whole hear allowing less outside noise to get in. It does this quite well, it doesn't completely block out outside noise, and quite a bit can still get in, but it is much better than in ear headphones I have tried. The size of the head ...
Summary: I was given a set of these headphones by my fiance for Christmas last year, after I wouldn't stop going on about how cool the headphones looked and how much I wanted a pair. I would not buy something so expensive for myself, so I was made up when I opened these up on Christmas day. The precise pair that I have are the Skullcandy Lowrider MFM White and they cost £34.99 instore from HMV. I would say this price is rather cheap considering how well these headphones perform.
