Excerpt: The sound quality is above average but we have found them to not be durable for a pre-teen. We went through 3 of them in less than a year and all three had the same problem, the wires connecting the headphobe to the device would easilt become loose. Firs on ear would go then the other and you could se the separation of the wire at the point they connect to each earset.
Excerpt: A year ago I received the Scullcandy Lowriders as a Birthday gift. The sound quality was great, but the price was outrageous. The headphones were bulky and looked awkward. Although the sounds was really good, the cons over-weighed pros. It was difficult transporting them due to their size. The muffs on the receivers were comfortable, but large. When I tried to take it off, my hair would get caught in the top part. The design artwork was cool.
the lowrider headphone is only good for ppl with small ears

Excerpt: i got this skullcandy lowrider headphone as a gift. I have been using it for couple month. The sound quality is decent for this kinda of lower end headphones. The headphone can be easily folded down to a smaller size to carry around and for travel. However,this headphone's cord is too short. Without a extension cord, it's hard for me to plug into my desktop and move around my desk.
Excerpt: A few months back, I picked up a pair of these at Best Buy for about $20. These headphones seemed to be the new "in thing" so I decided to try them for myself. Upon trying them on, I noticed they fit quite comfortably on my head. As a bonus, they looked pretty sweet around my neck! Thats pretty much where it ends. Sound quality was just alright. Nothing special, just passable. Comparable to a cheap pair of Sony headphones I could pick up for $10 at a discount store.
Excerpt: I got these headphones a couple of years back, when skullcandy was a new, little known brand. at first, i was enthralled with them, shiny, bright, nice headphones. while they are appealing to most people, they are somewhat gaudy and flashy, especially with the newer designs. i felt the sound was okay, not that great, but not too bad. better than ipod headphones, but not spectacular enough to blow me away. after all, they did cost me upwards of 30 some dollars.
Excerpt: I had spent quite a long time searching for the best pair of head phones or ear buds that was on the market for non-professionals (that is, until I found my Bose headphones) and eventually stumbled on these. I found them on sale and bought them as a Christmas present for my brother. He loved the way they looked but quickly started asking if he could borrow other family member's head phones.
Excerpt: So here's the deal: I loved my Skullcandy headphones SOOOO much! They were pink and white with little crowns on the ears. I got them at Marshalls for only $20 (which my mom paid, but that's irrelevant), and I loved them! When I listen to my music, I dance. I've been dancing and doing gymnastics since I was little so I did that with the headphones on and they broke, after I had them for only like a week!
Excerpt: These Skullcandy Lowrider headphones provided phenomenal sound for me. I was able to purchase an awesome feminine version that was pink and white. The sound was comparable to more expensive headphones. They were also extremely comfortable. I also liked their ability to fold up for transport. The Skullcandy Lowriderheadphones stopped working after 2 months of minimal use (2-3 days a week I'd relax to music on my computer after work).
Excerpt: Ok so I used to own a pair of these and the price for them was a good reasonable price and they worked nicely for awhile until around 2 weeks after owning them and using them frequently they snapped right in half. RIGHT IN HALF! now I know why their price was so low compared to the other sellers out there and when it comes to headphones you may need to pay a little more if you want a sturdy good pair of headphones.
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
