These head phones rock! I have a very picky ear when it comes to music listing, and I cannot find one flaw in the sound quality. The bass is higher quality than my friend's skull crushers, and the around ear design is way more comfortable. The phones are excellently padded and I can wear them for hours, or at least until my ears start to ring! If you are looking to zone out, these are great because even at low volume, you can't hear a thing outside. They are also very durable. The only complaint I have is that the stereo adapter that was supposed to be enclosed was missing, but Skullcandy was very cooperative in getting me one. Skullcandy is my new favorite company! Huge props to them!
