bye-bye skull candy
I've long been a supporter of the Skull Candy Icons for shreddin ...but only because there wasn't anything better on the market. These Whips blow the Icons away in every aspect.
The Icons come with foam or leather ear cups that are uncomfortable and snow sticks to them like crazy. These Whips have rubber-like ear cups that are comfy and they grip my hat so they don't eject off my head when I bail. The Whips are lighter and the ear cans are lower profile. The adjustable headband stays where you adjust it to. Finally, they sound way better.
Do yourself a favor. For all the hundreds of hours your headphones are blasting tunies, spend the extra five bucks and upgrade from the Icon to the Whip.
