Good sound. AWFUL build quality.

Wow, sounds great just don't fall down...music stops. Fist bump your friend? Music starts again. Hit a mogul? It stops. Turn your head? Lose one ear. Turn it the other way, lose both ears. Do nothing for 10 minutes...music mysteriously returns, then pauses, then returns, then crackles...

Everything I have ever bought from Skullcandy is crap. They have some crazy marketing machine convincing everyone they produce a quality product, but I have never been impressed.

The volume knob on this is awful. When you adjust it the sound goes in and out and brings static. In some positions it stays that way and you have to readjust.

There is a breakaway connection to the control knob and one to each headset. So, 3 junctures in total. None of them are solid connections. The main one above the control is the worst and needs to be taped up and tucked inside your helmet.

When everything is working, though, the sound quality of music and calls is very good.

I bought this in 2013 from Smith, so it looks slightly different than the one pictured but is the most recent available.

I have the same exact problem, all of the connections are bad on this brand new out of the box. Used it twice. Terrible product.

I echo Aarrgh. The build quality is awful, but when the product does work, it is super convenient.

I swapped out the chord and my sound issues went away.
