First off, I must say that I love the other skullcandy products I own. If I had to choose all over again, I wouldn't have gotten these. I got them from SAC or Whiskey, so the price wasn't so bad. I bought a pair of lowriders as well, and I have to say I like the lowriders more than these. They fit well, and keep the music isolated so i'm the only one hearing my headphones, but I expected better sound quality. They're loud, so volume isn't a problem, but they sound kind of muddy to me. Not what I expected for the MSRP on these things. I've got a friend that bought a pair of these. He also bought the titans at Ross for like 8 bucks. He likes the titans better than his FMJ's. Overall, if you want a pair of headphones that are loud without a huge amount of distortion, and you aren't much of an audiophile, these are perfect. If you score them at a cheaper price.
