Excerpt: I have owned two pairs of these and have really enjoyed them. I have always felt like some headphones dont last all that long and it becomes a hassle to keep replacing them. With these I had my first pair for over 3 years before one of the ear pieces stopped working. I like that they don't hurt your ears to wear for long periods of time and are really comfortable. They're easy to transport because they fold in half and easily fit in small spaces.
Excerpt: The Skullcandy lowrider headphones are excellent and I have no qualms about having bought them to replace a similar kind by Skullcandy that had previously broken due to overuse. First off, they are extremely comfortable and go over your ears very nicely. This is in addition to the excellent sound quality that these things have. I am extremely pleased.
Excerpt: Skull candy, The headphones truly speak for themselves. They have the most amazing quality you cant get this anywhere else! They are soooo comfy softer than a pillow lol :). But you should know getting other headphones than a skull candy is a crime! Skull Candy has the best headphones. No one can match the amazing sound quality of these musical devices. The reason why these headphones are so great is because they are sooo stylish.
Excerpt: They Were The Best Headphones I Had Ever Used! They could move and bend in almost any direction without breaking. You can easily move the headphones into a small, compact size that could fit in your side pockets, if wanted. I also had a pair of the big ones that stayed the same way on your head, but with these, you could move them anywhere around (or on ) your two ears. The volume is what sold me. It's extremly loud when you turn it loud, and silent when needed.
Excerpt: Considering the price and quality of the headphones, they're not the best in the world but they're pretty darn good and reasonably priced. If you can't afford professional grade headphones from companies like sennheiser then grab a pair of these instead.
Summary: OK, so I didn't buy the purple ones really. In fact I didn't buy Skullcandy headphones at all. They were given to me FREE with a mobile phone contract, and as a result, I dismissed them as a cheap freebie giveaway pair of nonsense rubbish. Mistake. When my partner, who had taken the same mobile phone contract six months earlier, finally started using these Skullcandy Lowrider Black headphones, also free, I didn't even ask for a try. Because they were free.
Excerpt: They isolate you from the sounds of the outside, so if some noisy neighbour is bothering me, they help me to stop listening to it and listening to only good music instead. The cable is pretty long too, so I can use them when I want to listen to the music in my computer too. The only bad point is the price, as they’re a little expensive in my opinion. However, I use them a lot and they’re a great product in my opinion, so I think that they were worth it.
Excerpt: Coming to the price now, I think there is a perfectly reasonable price if you want to buy these headphones they are not going to go wrong, or go loose, or break, you normally get them at 26 pounds. This is a lightweight product which I love, and I possibly think that’s the best bit about these headphones! I feel that I have used my money intelligently buying these headphones for myself, and hopefully they will last forever!
Summary: The sound quality is A-OK, and worth what they're usually sold for in most shops. The nice, plastic design is pretty and the surfaces smooth and easy to customise if you prefer to paint them yourself. The quality of sound and the price are usually sound, and they do look very nice.
The main complaints I have about these 'phones though, and the reasons this is not a very favourable review (despite the good sound quality) are the following two:
Pros: Good sound, lightweight, folds well, looks nice
Cons: pressure on ears, hurts if used too long, insecure fit, not very durable
