If you care more about what your headphones LOOK like than what they SOUND like, then you'll probably enjoy these headphones, cause lets face it, they look pretty sick. However, sound-wise the only advantage that these have over standard iPod earbuds is that they get louder. That's it. I was hoping for deeper bass and all around better sound quality, but didn't find it in these headphones.
Also, I was hoping to use these while snowboarding but these fit so loose that with any good shake of my head the headphones would fall right off. Maybe that's just because I'm kinda small, but whatever. These are 100% plastic and sound even cheaper than they look. I was disappointed.
