Product Review: Skull Candy Smokin Buds
By Soren McCarty
Skull Candy Ear Phone for use with iPod/MP3 players
First Impression: I needed a new pair of ear buds and everyone told me I should get a pair of Skull Candy headphones. I wanted something small enough to fit under my Giro Snowboard and Bike Helmets.
I also need ear buds that to use around town and would fit into my pocket when needed.
I chose the Skull Candy Smokin Buds for the size and audio quality. The ear buds come with three different sizes earpieces to fit various size ears.
Fit: The Skull Candy Smokin Buds fit snugly in the ear offering great sound quality and a comfortable fit. The rubber coating of the audio wire is durable and easy to untangle, the Smokin Buds are also available with a microphone for the iphone and Droid.
Performance: I was amazed at the sound quality when I first used the Smokin Buds; the sound quality was noticeable compared to my previous ear buds. I also noticed that I did not need to set my volume as high on my iPod to hear my music. The Smokin Buds also work well with my Blackberry Curve when listing to Pandora Radio.
Colors: Various available (Black and Red used for Testing)
Overall Impression: I have been really happy with the sound quality of the Smokin Buds; they have been durable, comfortable and have enhanced my music experience. I look forward to listing to new music with my Smokin Buds, Skull Candy makes other Earphone, and I look forward to testing out their other audio devices. I also love that the Smokin Buds fit comfortably in my ears, and fit in my helmet when I am skiing or biking.
